FOG Server & Client Compatibility



  • Server

    • OS: Windows 7
    Description

    Just wondering about FOG server versions and client versions.

    At the moment i have FOG server 7208 running with legacy clients and 9.0.12 clients.

    I have an issue where my server CPU runs at 100% all the time during the day when the pcs are talking to FOG.

    Im planning on upgrading the legacy clients to 9.0.12 and then upgrading the FOG server, but i cant upgrade the server until the clients have upgraded.

    Does anyone have a list of Server and Client compatibly? I did upgrade to 1.3.0 rc14 awhile ago, but the old legacy clients did not talk to the server, so printers and snapins did not deploy. So i had to go back to the previous snapshot.

    Is there a version of FOG server that will talk to the legacy client and the 9.0.12 client newer than the version i have. Im hoping this will sort the 100% CPU usage issue. I have seen on the forums that the new clients are sending a of chat to the server and its fixed in later versions, but i dont want to upgrade yet because of the old legacy client.

    High CPU usage info:

  • SET PASSWORD FOR 'fogstorage'@'%' = PASSWORD('new-password-here'); FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
    

    Seems to have resolved my issues

    @Tom-Elliott

    Upgraded both Server and Node to 1.3.0 RC22 last night.

    Now i get an error with the storage node “A valid database connection could not be made”

    Iv checked my passwords and it all seems to be ok.

    Any ideas?

    Ok i try to login to my database; doesnt connect.

    /fogproject# sudo mysql -h 10.1.9.235 -u fogstorage -p -A fog
    Enter password:
    ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'fogstorage'@'10.1.9.217' (using password: YES)

  • Ok great, il look at scheduling a server upgrade.

    Many thanks

    And, all versions of trunk/rc shouldn’t have much issue working with both versions (New and Legacy) of the clients, though I’d highly recommend getting every system on the new client for security and performance reasons.


  • Senior Developer

    Please, I’d highly recommend updating to the RC versions of FOG.

    First, we’ve updated the new client to a much less intensive system of receiving its data (most likely will fix your CPU 100% issue, after the clients have a shot at updating.)

    There’s been loads of improvements beyond that itself. We’ve been RC’s for a few months now, and while it’s still not “perfect” it’s eons above the performance and capabilities of the 7000 versions, and even the 8000 versions.

    Please update and I think you’ll find many of these issues will be corrected for.
