I’ve used fog for a while, and it’s always been great. Lately however, I can’t get any linux images to deploy. I’m using ubuntu server 10.04.3, core 2 processor, 2 gbs of ram, and v .32 of FOG. Upload “seems” to work okay, it will occasionally stall, but will eventually complete. Deploy freezes at different points (even when trying to deploy the same image), sometimes 44%, 87%, even 93%, which was a heartbreaker…
Clients are EEE PC 1000HE netbooks, running ubuntu 10.04.3.They have been successfully imaged using FOG in the past (though that was at another site, different server, and v .29). I don’t know why the deploy is freezing, but after it does, the client “thinks” it has been deployed, and goes on to process the rest of the partitions (just swap, so they fail, but that’s never been a problem before).
I have tried this on 3 fog server machines, and 2 hard drives.
Deployment speed (before it hangs) is right around 2.3 gb/min for the first 1/3, then drops to 1.7 for the rest of the imaging.
Can I increase the tolerance for slow deploys, so the client waits longer before reporting “image restored?”
Thanks in advance - we have nearly 200 of these netbooks, and FOG has been invaluable in the past.
