Fog download to a wiped disc do not work here (debugging that i ran in an other problem, so pardon for the second thread in 2 days)
I have manually to create a (dummy)partition on the client to make download work.
But that can’t be true for a remote imaging system, or?
Image are not restored on empty disks
Steps to reproduce:
Create a VM for Windows 7 32 bit using Virtual Box 4.3.15beta (.14 is broken)
Disk 25GB dynamically, (is filled with zeroes, unformated, uninitialized)
Insert CD iPXE.iso (I don’t think that step matters, it’s only for my convience as a can’t change DHCP)
boot iPXE (sets only chain next server IP etc)
boot from fog “default.ipxe”
Perform Full Host Registration and Inventory (works flawlessly)
Primary User: t
Image now? N
At fog-Server Webfront end:
List all host
Host Image: Gold
List all hosts
“Download trask created”
Client boots via ipxe
Linux is directly booting
Some messages with “OK” can be seen
I have to press enter several times
VM boots immediately again without any transfer
No image transfer occured
Task became deleted on the fog server
Task became reported as “OK”.
FOG “Report Management” says:
fog tt 2014-08-05
11:31:42 00:00:01 Gold Download
1 sec: impossible. There was no transfer at all. There is no windows on the client.

On the clients “debug” console:

root@10#fog (start an download at the server)
Does a lot stuff but do not download the images
Create a partition:
root@10#fog (start a download at the server)
“download” works now!
Part clone launches and writes images with 2GB/min
The only difference:
A Partition was written!
After the use of the fast wipe command the restore(download) will not work too.
Any hint why only I have that problem?
