@jj-fullmer No I haven’t tried that. I will try that now. Thanks!
I have checked in the FOG task manager to see if it shows any progress and unfortunately it doesn’t show anything.
Hey Everyone - I had this issue before when trying to capture my audit mode image. I can get the capture to happen on any of the other models of computers that we have but for some reason the Lenovo P52 doesn’t work. It’s just stuck on the the PXE screen. The last couple of lines that I see are:
bzImage … ok
and it will just sit there forever, not picking up on the FOG side to start initiating the capture. Is this something someone else has experienced?
Any pointing in the right direction would be much appreciated.
I use http://newstuff.clarke.co.nz/wsname wsname.exe is a little executable someone wrote a while back.
I have a simple script that references a txt document put together with all of our machines MAC addresses. I type out what I want it to be named. It works perfectly!!
#!/bin/sh echo " "; echo " * FOG file preload"; echo " "; mkdir /ntfs &>/dev/null # if /dev/sda3 exists, do this ntfs-3g -o force,rw /dev/sda3 /ntfs # else if /dev/nvme0n1p3 exists, do this ntfs-3g -o force,rw /dev/nvme0n1p3 /ntfs echo -n " * Copying preload files............................."; cp -r /images/preload/* /ntfs/ umount /ntfs echo "Done."; echo " "; echo " * File preload completed."; sleep 2;
This is what i started yesterday, train of thought being, just do a check for sda vs nvme?
@george1421 I’m not copying drivers in any of my images. I switched to a per machine basis. The only thing I want to copy over is some test patterns, speaker timer software, and some royalty free music, (That’s what I mean by “Files”)
I’m going to look at this more tomorrow when i’m back in the office and i’ll let you know.
@Sebastian-Roth Sorry i’m late to the party haven’t been on in a while. Yeah i’m going to test this out right now in debug mode.
I tried to burn the computer with our postinit folder empty thinking maybe that would change the problem but it didn’t.
@george1421 What exactly am i looking for in debug mode? Listing out the partitions and seeing what is consumed?
**UPDATE - I just commented out the preload script that’s supposed copy our files over after the burn is complete and it fixes our issue. While this is not ideal, I can at least make it work. I can add the few files that we want to copy over as part of my Audit mode image.
I believe i figured out the issue, it appears as thought the device names between convention HD’s and SSD’s are different. We had the script trying to copy these files into a device that doesn’t exists.
So I guess i need to add in a conditional to my BASH that checks if it’s a HD or SSD.
The device name in our current script is looking for sda3, not nvme0n1p3 on the SSD.
@george1421 I feel more confident now after discovering this, however if one of you think i’m not on the right path feel free to let me know and i’ll update you soon.
Our file server based on FreeNAS.
I know that this isn’t supported by FOG, I guess I am just curious as to why everything will still work except for our new laptops.
‘fog’ is our master node, points to /mnt/media-images (backed by NFS) ‘media’ is an additional node, points to /mnt/pool/it/images (direct NAS). We set it up this way because the images are stored on a server with about 12 TB free currently.
@george1421 no, that’s the IP of our file server. .3 is the FOG server IP
