First off, yes, did you create a user on your device named fog with the password of password of password? (unless you changed your default password in fog or set it on linux)
I was able to replicate this and have successfully got it passed the permission denied error.
This is NOT what I was talking about before. This requires you actually setup a new storage node in FOG web settings.
Step 1: Select “Storage Management” from the top menu in the Fog web interface.
Step 2: Add New storage node.
– See my screenshot
– Be sure to use “/mnt/pools/A/A0/images/” if this is accurate to your device. (On my Iomega share I have /images setup-- change the name to reflect your share.)
NOTICE: I set this to my default storage node / is Master node. (because my server is just a virtual appliance, the storage is external…)
Now, make sure your fog installation can see it… go back to the home page and check your storage size.
(It will be blank until you change to the Storage node you just created.) (for my new storage node, it says “Unable to connect”… but when I select “default member” from the list, I see all my disk space from my Iomega device.)
Finally, as you can see, In Image Management, I have it set to store images in the Default Storage group.
This method should work for you, it worked for me twice… I set it up and it worked, then I re-installed fog and re-did it just to make sure.
