I’m receiving an error when attempting to upload a new image from a computer workstation. It states ‘Mounting file system failed. %windows storage node IP address%:/images/ on /images failed: no such file or directory’.
My FOG Server is utilising the Ubuntu 14.04.2 Server x64 platform. My FOG Server is version 1.2.0. My FOG Server resides within a VMware vSphere 5.5 Hypervisor. I had issues utilising the local storage node. I created a thread specific to this problem. Since this thread as suggested I created a new FOG Server instance on a CentOS platform. Unfortunately I had difficulty during the FOG Server installation; with the additional server components that the system require – specifically MySQL, and the outdated repository sources.
I conducted more research and have since decided to continue with Ubuntu, while utilising a Windows NFS server as the FOG Server Storage Node. I have been utilising the documentation below as a reference.
Take note the errors stated above and specifically related to this new implementation of Windows.
I guess my issue is related to the computer workstation not being able to write to the NFS Server, I would assume it’s probably more inclined to be due to not being able to locate the appropriate NFS images path.
Is there any way I can navigate to the NFS storage node from the CLI of Ubuntu? Sorry for my ignorance, I’m not really a Linux sys admin.
Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
