    Description

    I’m capturing an image and in one of the last steps, after uploading image, in “Updating database…” phase I get:
    “Error returned: Type: 8. File: /var/www/html/lib/fog/fogbase.clas.php. Line: 837. Message: Undefined index: pass.Host: xx.xx.xx.xx. Username: fog”

    @Wayne-Workman I’ve followed the troubleshooting guide in case of “Update database…failed” and tftpd passwords are OK.
    The error happens in fog.imgcomplete script, in “curl” line. If I do the curl at command prompt I get this:

    curl -ks --data ‘mac=98:90:96:d8:29:4d&type=up&osid=9’ http://<ip_of_main_fog_server>/fog/service/Post_Stage2.php

    Type: 8, File: /var/www/html/fog/lib/fog/fogbase.class.php, Line: 837, Message: Undefined index: pass. Host: <storage_node_ip>, Username:fog

    SOLVED!! So simple as a firewall rule! Shame on me.
    Fog main server was unable to contact client to port 21.
    What had made me crazy was log messages, which seemed to have no sense.
    Thanks anyway.

  • @Frank I still need you to do the troubleshooting. This is what I would do if I were there.



  • @Wayne-Workman After rebooting all implied servers now its working !?!
    Let’s left it as another IT mystery. Thanks to all for your help anyway.
    Problem can be closed as well.

    My God! I was on holiday and I have confused myself! sorry!
    Its still failing at the same point



  • @Frank Can you please do the basic steps in the troubleshooting article?

    @Tom-Elliott I’ve monitoring de “database updating” with wireshark and I see an http dialog between fog main server an the client. This seems to go OK, but after clients seems to wait something for half a minute until the error appears.
    Does this tell something to you?

    I’m going to try to be more explicit:
    First come a http dialog between fog main server and client.
    Then clients waits on “Updating database…” half a minute.
    “Failed” is shown.
    Another http dialog happens between main server and client.

    The message “undefined” typically comes when a storage node is not running. This is just from my experience though. The reason I suggest running through the troubleshoot ftp is because it’s a good basis to start looking and finding the cause.



  • @Tom-Elliott Thanks for your answer.
    I guess you mean issues with ftp credentials, but the message points to code. I have not changed any storage settings but I am going to double-check it anyway.
