New storage node - sync not working

  • Server
    • FOG Version: 1.3.4
    • OS: Ubuntu 16.04.1LTS

    I have installed a storage node following the instructions on the wiki. All looks fine as far as I can see, but no sync is happening. I am receiving the following error in both the Image Replicator and Snapin Replicator logs:

    [02-07-17 10:49:37 am] * Type: 8, File: /var/www/html/fog/lib/fog/fogbase.class.php, Line: 841, Message: Undefined index: storagegroupID, Host:, Username: fog

    I have double checked the storage node settings on the master server, including ensuring the password is correct. What am I missing?

    Thank you very much, This may help someone in the future with a similar issue ;)

    I appreciate you taking the time to explain your issue and your resolution!

    Absolutely. Our 2 servers are in different schools, with an IPSec VPN in between. I am currently building a new network consisting of a single domain across all schools, but have to maintain the existing multi-domain setup.

    On my firewall, I hadn’t allowed each side to use the other side from my new IP address range. Allowing this on the firewall resolved the issue.

    Simply put - the 2 servers were unable to route to each other - there was no route between them.

    I would say a good solution might be for the replication services to give an error stating that the server can’t be contacted though.

    @Tony-Ayre Would you mind elaborating on the issue, so if others have this issue, they will have a resolution?

  • Ah, figured it out. It was a routing issue between the 2 servers.

    It may be worth providing a user friendly error in the log if the master can’t connect with the storage node.
