Export and Import Images from different Fog servers



  • Just checking, is it possible to export an image captured by one Fog server and then import it into a different Fog server? Both will have the same version (1.3) and be completely isolated from each other with different config (IP, hostname etc).

    Asking as a review of a (very) old version of Fog said it wasn’t possible.

    Thanks.

    1.3 rcs and trunk brought the capability to import and export elements individually where anything prior did not. So if you’re exporting or importing from one 1.3 to another you should be fine. In 1.2.0 and earlier only db export and host exports where available. 1.0.0 brought the db export capability which 0.32 and earlier did not have thus possibility.

    Hopefully this helps define what you’re asking about.

    Thanks Tom, exporting / importing the csv image list and using WinSCP to transfer the image files is working with 1.3 RC.

    @Tom-Elliott It’s already unique though. I can specify a name, and then specify an entirely different path. And I like the path auto-fill feature, it’s great. I think it’s fine as it is and doesn’t need changing.

    @Wayne-Workman The name doesn’t necessarily have to be the same, just the path must be the same. (Just clarifying).

    You can have multiple images calling the same image path if you really wanted to.

    I may make the path a unique element of the images though, so as to help prevent potential problems of multi named, same path images.

    @Middle That said, of course you can just copy the image files from one 1.2.0 server and put them on another, and just manually create the image definition via the web interface on the destination server. The thing to be aware of is the definition must be the same as the old one. And the image path must be absolutely correct and is case sensitive, there is no room for error here.
