My next article will be on load-balancing FOG’s web frontend and database backend… I’ve just not wrote it yet… Don’t wait on me, it might be a while.
I've used FOG at a past job pretty intensely. During that time I contributed a lot to the FOG forums and it's documentation, a handful of pull requests, and contributed to the fog-community-scripts repo. I built automated tests for FOG's installer which run daily against many operating systems, link is in my signature. My fog time has slowed down a lot in the last couple years, but I still try to help as I can. I've got a lot of knowledge about FogProject in general and I can help you gear up or contribute if you would like.

RE: Installation stops during setting up fogproject password
it seems generating passwords in fog has been an issue for a while… be it special characters that need handled or double vs single quotes to contain it…
Lately in my own projects, I opt for very long passwords made from upper & lower case letters and numbers randomly. I’m talking 32, or 64 characters long. Typically I look up the maximum length supported password, and generate one of that length, just letters and numbers.
RE: button "Reset encryption Data" does not appear
@martial A temporary solution would be to manually reset the encryption. Steps on this are in the wiki here:
That’s just to get you moving along. Please still help us figure out why the button is not appearing for you.
You might also consider cleaning your database…
You can replace the
SELECT *to see the entries, instead of deleting them.
RE: shell script to sync folder to storage node.
Have you tried ssh aliases?
For example, if you are root and set the file
Host fog-server User root HostName 10.0.0.28 Port 22
You can then just type
ssh fog-serverand bam, you’re in.
Makes scripting a bit simpler… Particularly makes getting around in your systems faster while in the shell.
Agreeing with @Sebastian-Roth though. If ssh works manually, but doesn’t in cron, it’s maybe a user issue. You can figure out who it’s executing as like such:
whoami > /tmp/whoami.txt 2>&1
Put that towards the top of your script, see what it says.
RE: Auto-Installing FOG with HTTPS enabled issues
but I have a habit of using sudo anyway.
This has in-fact caused many people problems. I don’t know why, don’t really care why, but using sudo with the installer doesn’t work. As Sebastion said, properly log in as root with
sudo -iand then execute the installer.
RE: Automate FOG Installation?
@TBuzaTechnician You can also pre-place your .fogsettings file, rather than modifying the source code every time. Here’s a writeup on that settings file:
Modifying the source is cool too, whatever shakes your feathers.
