Fog Server No Longer Working: Getting Database Schema Installer/Updater

  • I am running the latest version of Fog (1.2.0) in Kubuntu. Right now I am running it within Virtualbox to use this as a proof of concept and I will eventually build this out into a proper VM in prod. This AM when I came into the office after running an image upload overnight my FOG server would not longer allow a login. When I navigated to the site I got re-directed to the following URL:


    I then found out that after this issue occured my VM had a major issue and I couldn’t even get into the Konsole or past what appeared to be nearly a blank screen.

    Realizing that I was SOL I wanted to start looking up way of restoring images. I have determined that the VDI where the images are stored is readable and I should be able to extract them. I wanted to know if anyone had any experience in restoring images from nothing more than files and folders in FOG.

    My idea thus far is to re-crate a DB entry for the various images I lost with the same name as before and then simply copy the known working images into the Images folder in my new and working install of FOG.

    Did you still need help?

  • It’s likely your DB just needs restarted. Typically this happens with Ubuntu based systems. We have a fix for it here:

    For the images, yeah you can easily copy those off, and put them on a new system. You’d just re-create what we call the “Image Definition” to exactly point to the right directory, have all the right settings as was originally set.
