Synology NAS as FOG Storage node
@alex78 Just be aware that changes in the FOG program make using a NAS as a storage node a bit more difficult.
Did you complete all parts of the tutorial? With synology nas, typically the path would be
/volume1/images/igmWindowsit appears you have missed a setting someplace.
Ok, I am still checking all the steps of your tutorial and I will come back to you, if it not solved the problem or on the contrary if it solved it, thank you for your answer.
I think it’s working thanks you
@alex78 Can you tell us what you had missed originally and what you did to fix it? This could help another user down the road, so always good to share if you can.
@tom-elliott I just unchecked “Enable advanced sharing permissions in affected folders”:
I would like to appreciate this nice little post, I wish I had stumbled upon this earlier. Last week I tried creating my Synology NAS as a storage node and it worked. Little did I know that was the beginning of my misery. Whole week I struggled in fixing the replication issues.
Had I found this Thread earlier, I wouldn’t have attempted it.
First of all, thanks to george1421 and other users who deliver this solution.
Before i say what is my problem, the existant :
FOG serveur 1.5.4 on a Debian 9.4 with no graphical environment (terminal only) with 100Go disk. This debian is virtual on ESX6.5.0
NAS : Synologie DS116 with plenty of space
I’m a bit confuse.
All opération discribe here works whell, but when i capture, the image is copied on FOG server. Then, after capture, image is automaticaly copied on NAS. But after copy on NAS was finish, she stay on my FOG server, so after two Win10 capture the server is full.
What i miss out on ?
Is the capture normally do directly on NAS without any write on Server ?
Thanks in advance.
@Vincent-Caraby First let me say that changes in the fog server makes using a non-fog NAS a problem if you have it configured as you have it now. The FOG replicator will continue to copy the image over and over again to your NAS.
But let me tell you that you can do what I think you want. You must know that you can only capture images to a Master Node in a storage group. So in your settings change it so the NAS is the master node in your storage group, instead of the FOG server. This should make the images to go directly to the NAS and not FOG server.
Thanks, i see the red message at top of topic to late.
I test this solution, it seem to be wright but i’m stuck on a permission problem.
Setup my NAS storage node to master node. But when i would capture there a message “permission denied” when mounting file system.
I don’t understand who on what give permission ? I suppose it’s my “adminfog” (fog server) to my NAS folders (images, snapins, tftpboot).
Is there a file where i can configure this rigtly ? A bit lost and not linux expert, but i prefer use config files if possible.
Some capture of my configuration :
@Vincent-Caraby Well lets see if I can explain this, but the answer is simple and complicated at the same time.
The FOS engine connects to the master node as
rootso the synology nas needs to allow
rootto connect to the /volume1/images and /volume1/images/dev as root.
Also the FOS engine will use ftp to connect to the NAS using the
adminfoguser and password you defined in the Storage Node configuration to move the files from /images/dev to /images directory.
