Trouble after adding storage to /images
I wasn’t sure if I should post this under Linux or under Fog since I don’t know where the issue lies exactly, but here we are.
I recently ran out of space on my FOG 7589 VM. I added a new disk to the VM and mounted it at /images following instructions here. Now when I try to capture an image, the client fails to check the mounted file system and says to check and make sure that .mntcheck exists (and it does, with the correct permissions).
The disk space pie chart in FOG itself shows the correct space in the new disk. I know FOG sees its new images directory, but for some reason clients just don’t like it after it’s mounted. Please advise. Thanks!
@Wayne-Workman Ah. Thank you. In hindsight I probably could have saved some trouble by copying the dev folder out of the previous /images (now /oldImages) directory. I just copied the image I knew I needed to keep and then created a new dev directory. Just should’ve copied both

@arduinoAndMore There should be two, under images and dev. This is covered in the Troubleshoot NFS article and probably several other places too.
@Tom-Elliott …So apparently the .mntcheck file goes inside /images/dev and not just under /images? Was that really what I did wrong? facepalm
Is it just that .mntcheck should be under /images/dev or should it be in both /images/dev and /images?
It works now.
Thank you both so much for your valuable assistance! Keep up the good work!
@arduinoAndMore Can you please run:
sudo touch /images/dev/.mntcheck sudo chmod -R 777 /images
find /images | grep .mntcheck
find /images | grep .mntcheckis

As you can see I do have one small image called MultiKiosk that is stored here already. I’m trying to capture a new Windows7 image right now.

@arduinoAndMore what is the output of this command?
find /images | grep .mntcheckand this command
ls -lahRt /images
Content of /etc/exports
/images *(ro,sync,no_wdelay,no_subtree_check,insecure_locks,no_root_squash,insecure,fsid=0) /images/dev *(rw,async,no_wdelay,no_subtree_check,no_root_squash,insecure,fsid=1)
Output of showmount -e 127.0.0.1
Export list for 127.0.0.1: /images/dev * /images *
I still get the message from the client saying:
“Could not verify mount point. Check if .mntcheck exists (/bin/fog.upload)”
Computer will reboot in 1 minute
@arduinoAndMore Make sure that /images/dev exists and then just update the /etc/exports file. And finally run
exportfs -ato update the shares.
@arduinoAndMore Your second part is wrong, you need the /dev part:
Make the second line read as:
My output is as follows. Note that I changed the second line from /images/dev to /images. I assume that’s not what I was supposed to do.
fogadmin@fogserver:~$ cat /etc/exports /images *(ro,sync,no_wdelay,no_subtree_check,insecure_locks,no_root_squash,insecure,fsid=0) /images *(rw,async,no_wdelay,no_subtree_check,no_root_squash,insecure,fsid=1)
As you mentioned in your reply I should probably see the /images/dev share in the output of showmount. How should I go about adding that new share?
@arduinoAndMore This is what I have in my /etc/exports
[root@localhost ~]# cat /etc/exports /images *(ro,sync,no_wdelay,no_subtree_check,insecure_locks,no_root_squash,insecure,fsid=0) /images/dev *(rw,async,no_wdelay,no_subtree_check,no_root_squash,insecure,fsid=1)
@george1421 This makes sense. What is the proper way to add the share? Thanks
I did a screenshot and coped the text from the picture using OneNote. OCR’s fault I updated the output of sudo mount (reply below) using copy-paste over ssh.
sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /imagesis
mount: /dev/sdb1 already mounted or /images busy mount: according to mtab, /dev/sdb1 is already mounted in /images
I see this:
deu/sdbl on / images type ext3 (rw)
Did you type or copy-paste the output?
If copy-paste, then your issue (from what I can see, is you’re mounting sdb1 on / and not on /images.
@arduinoAndMore I notice that /images is NOT mounted currently.
Going to guess you still need to run:
sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /images(assuming /dev/sdb is the new disk you added?)
Output of sudo mount

@arduinoAndMore yeah, you are missing the /images/dev share.
You should have
Export list for 127.0.0.1: /images/dev * /images *
The output of showmount -e 127.0.0.1 is
Export list for 127.0.0.1 /images *
