What I’m seeing is the ftp server is pointing at 192.168.86.105 But the fog storage server is at 192.168.86.12
Maybe I’m missing something?
The only thing I can think of is that it’s not communicating with the gateway properly.
It’s, seemingly, is passing information through a loop. If you have a crossover cable, try one computer connected directly to the FOG Server’s network interface and try doing it that way. This will let you know if it’s the DHCP & DNS issue. I’d recommend, though, instead of a 5 port switch, if you have a router such as a linksys or netgear, you shouldn’t see the problem you’re describing now.
I don’t know what else to check. I understand you’re trying to make the server the “router” in this case, but that loop around seems to be causing the issue itself. Does your fedora system have named/bind installed as well?
Found out that, the problem I’m seeing with the image upload process (as much as I can tell) is halting (resizable) because it’s referencing as kB. This in and of itself isn’t necessarily wrong, but when I try to manual create the disk partitions using parted, it tells me that 105905 (one byte behind part2start) is not valid for the partition. If I leave the end alone, it completes, but it isn’t the right size. It’s much smaller (part 1 that is) when it’s created using this particular method of parted. However, it successfully recreates the partition if I call the sectors: specifically, the sectors referenced are 206847 (partition one end) and 206848 is the start sector on the drive.
This method I can get rid of the need for the sleep commands, and all runs as expected. This is really weird to me, but it’s working as far as I can tell.
So I’ve, seemingly, made progress on getting the upload to work. It seems that my builds just ran thru way too quickly for pigz to keep up with writing to the NFS. The only issue is that my VM is extremely slow on the upload and download process. It only pushes speeds as high as 758 MiB/min and as slow as 100 MiB/min, but this sounds likely to just be a driver issue in my kernel.
I found that by adding a sleep command to the partimage save of the 2 partition section seems to work. I’m tinkering now with stepping up the intervals for the sleep timer to find out which one works best, at least for my setup. I don’t know if it’s simply because I am making an image off of a VM or if this would be a common issue seen by all. Though I don’t know that many people are using this particular setup.
My init.gz size is 9.7MB versus the 12-13 MB of the original one. I don’t know what I changed, but it’s probably the busybox config more than anything.
I’m taking down the tarball for now as it will probably be a couple of days until I get the sleep timer just right. Hopefully this is okay for everybody.
There were a few components missing from this. I didn’t build my own busybox configuration or use the one that FOG graciously provides for us. I’m trying to limit size a little, so hopefully after this run, fdisk and all the bobs and bits from the filesystem for partclone is all available. The file will still be named the same once uploaded.
So here’s the buildroot that I use:
If you’re to wget the file, as always, use:
wget --no-check-certificate [url]http://mastacontrola.com/fogboot/buildroot-2013.08-rc2_FOG.tar.bz2[/url]
It’s rather large, I know, but it’s preconfigured with everything we need including the buildroot .config and it builds on Centos 6.4 with no issues. I haven’t built it on other OS’s. You will need the normal development information for building this thing, but a couple things that I needed to add were glibc-static and perl-ExtUtils-ParseXS and all dependencies needed there.
The file is about 300MB in size, and it will take a while to download as I’m only sporting 5MB upload speeds, sorry guys, but it’s better than nothing right?
Maybe others can look at what I’m doing wrong to find out the partitioning issues?
You do the normal building with:
If you want to edit the packages to install, that’s up to you, but you will need to download it. When you setup for this you do the normal:
make ARCH=i386 menuconfig
Hopefully people find this useful.
Also, my buildroot actually builds partclone and partimage natively so I’ve modified the fog package and rather than using customize within the package directory, I just placed the FOG components in the package directory.
A quick search of the error comes up with a MS article:[url]http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2466753[/url]
This could be your setup as well. Make sure to try SP1 versus non sp1 win 7.
It almost sounds like a 64 bit vs. 32 bit problem. I don’t have experience with nComputing. But I’ve seen similar issues trying to install 64 bit win 7 on netbooks.
The recommended disk upload type depends on disks in the system. Do you have multiple disks in the systems? The blank disk is probably because they’ve never been initialized which means you need to fdisk them just to write a quick value to them.
Updated due to autocorrect from mobile device.
Alright, I spoke a little too soon. That doesn’t mean I haven’t made success. I won’t post the file here, just the link as when compressed with all dl files needed it’s about 300MB which I’m certain is too large for this forum.
I’ll get the upload working on both partitions, as soon as I figure out why it’s not exactly.
