SOLVED Entries in /opt/fog/.fogsettings mangled? on First-time Install

  • Server
    • FOG Version: RC10 & RC11
    • OS: CentOS 7.2.1511

    A first-time installation generates these extended … duplicate entries in /opt/fog/.fogsettings.


    Unless, this is somewhy intended . 😎

  • To quote the Professor, good news everyone!

    The problem is no longer a problem as of RC22.

    Thank you again for all of your hard work.

  • @Quazz Must be. Just weird it was happening first, but with no changes to how it’s operating and suddenly being fixed seems even stranger to me.

    @Tom-Elliott The IT gods are more favorable this week.

  • @sudburr But nothing changed.

  • I haven’t had a chance to check against the latest builds. I’ll be looking at it this week.

  • @sudburr Guessing this still happens? (Just keeping the unsolved bugs at the forefront so we don’t lose it)

  • ip addr prior to installation of RC14v3

    Entries in /opt/fog/.fogsettings immediately after installation


  • Interesting. This wasn’t a one off. I duplicated the results on both RC10 and RC11.

    And of course you can see how I built the server in my tutorial posts.

    I’m trying it again now with RC14v3 (svn5974).

  • @Tom-Elliott I have tested CentOS 7.2.1511 already and my .fogsettings file is perfectly fine. Of course, CentOS 7 has other issues with the latest RC at the moment.

  • As a matter of chance I currently have a 7.2.1511 server (though it is my main db server) that has never had fog installed on it before. I will take a snapshot and give it a go to see if I see the same mangling type of entries as well as hopefully fix the installation on this distro.

  • @sudburr Can you give us the output of ip addr show so we can see if there is anything that may be there that is causing this?

  • Negatory on multiple NICs.

  • I’ve not been able to replicate this issue. I’m wondering if you have multiple NICs on the system receiving identical ranges and this is why you’re seeing this?

  • I’ve gone and installed Fedora 24 on a vm at home. I’ve taken a snapshot immediately after install and updates ran (other than that everything is just base fresh install with all defaults set).

    I installed using Fedora 24 Netinstall server. I know that doesn’t match the issue with CentOS 7.2, but it should come pretty close. I’m trying to work on the installation of Fedora 24 so as to fix the “does not exist” errors others are seeing as well and suspect I’ll see these issues here there as well meaning I should be able to get a fix relatively soon.
