Any help would be great.
I have double checked passwords where i can think of but it is only snapins that fails the ftp login.
Please let me know after updating…again. I say again because I found I had one thing being encoded where it shouldn’t have been which would cause the failure because it’s passing the password that will NOT be decoded. When it’s performed on command line, however, it needs to be encoded.
Thanks i will test asap

@theWizard the devs are already aware of an issue with password escaping - I think it’s already fixed even, but should the installer go changing people’s passwords ? Probably not. The fix is just to reset the passwords in all the areas where they are set.
That seems to be the issue, removed the special characters from the password and snapins are now going on. Big thanks, will this bug get picked up from here to be fixed ?
I could open a manual connection with any password i set.

@theWizard Another thing to check is if you can manually open an FTP session using the storage node’s user/pass combo. https://wiki.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php?title=Troubleshoot_FTP
@theWizard try removing special characters and try again.
It’s a standard password we were using with previous versions but does contain $*
I force changed it for the fog account to the same in passwd and double checked it was correct in gui but still nothing.
@theWizard are you using a randomly generated password with special characters in it? Double checked password in GUI and passwd?
