PartClone fail on deploy - error code 1
- FOG Version: 1.3.4
- OS: Ubuntu Server 14.04
- Service Version:
- OS: Windows 7
I created a new image for one of our desktops (HP 6305). The image looked like it captured ok but when I tested the deployment, PartClone threw error code 1. I looked in /var/logs/ but dont see the partclone.log file.
Here is a video of the error:
@Tom-Elliott Hi Tom. I had the same problem when I wanted to deploy my last image (Dell OptiPlex 330/Windows 7 created with the last version of FOG: 1.3.4)
It works fine now thanks to the 1 value in the d1.fixed_size_partitions. Thank you
@Tom-Elliott Ok thanks
@coop90 no. I don’t know why it happens and I do currently have “test” case code to try to prevent this, but it’s typically a limited issue thing. If anybody wants to dive into the code and take a look, they’re more the welcome. I can’t find it myself unfortunately, and I’ve been trying.
I can tell you it was introduced when I removed the forced use of the first partition being fixed.
@Tom-Elliott That worked. Thanks!
Anything I should be doing differently in the future when I create/capture images to avoid this problem?
@coop90 The : is the separate, the number is the number of the partition to maintain as fixed.
I didn’t know what was in the file, and most I’ve seen come across the file is blank.
Can you make the file read in whole as:
@Tom-Elliott I got the same error but I am not sure I added the 1 correctly. The file was “:3” and I made it “:31” Is that correct?
@coop90 Strange as 14 seconds in that is the error. I’ve seen this before. When I examined the two drives, one was a few blocks smaller. Admittedly the two drive were not the same make, to might not be the same issue. I bet if you shrink the original computers partition and re-upload it works.
Please edit the d1.fixed_size_partitions file and add:
1to the list.
@kibade The hardware is identical on both machines. It is the same model 500gb seagate drive.
The error is saying the target computer has a smaller HDD than the computer the imaged came from. Can you check and see if the image is from a computer with a larger HDD.
