    FOG & Xenserver

    Hi there,

    does anyone use FOG within a virtual XenServer environment? If so what version of Linux did you use?

    I used to run FOG on CentOS 5.3 (which was then upgraded to 5.4) ontop of Citrix XenServer.

    Sounds like you may not have installed the linux guest support pack for xenserver.

    2nd download button here: Citrix XenServer Downloads

    Hi,

    Just double checked and the Linux guest pack is installed. I've downloaded the CentOS DVD iso and tried installing this. This gets further than the Ubuntu install but after selecting the language, I'm then propted to where I want to update the modules from? What modules, I'm installing from a DVD!?!?!

    I'm running FOG, on Debian Lenny, on XenServer and i've had no issues so far. I downloaded the Debian install disc from here:

    Debian Lenny XenServer - Citrix Community

    Hi Mate,

    I'm getting this error after running ./installfog.sh:

    Confirming package installation
    * Checking package: httpd . . . . Failed!

    Any ideas?

    Do you have a proxy?

    If you do, have you set the settings as mentioned in this post. Run apt-get update as root (to update the package lists) then try installing fog again.

    Are you executing installfog.sh as root?

    Have you defintely got internet access to download the packages and if you made the VM behind a proxy you'll have to check the that you have the correct repositories as the installer doesn't like the lack of internet access.

    To let apt access the internet I normally give the proxy settings directly by making a file called /etc/apt/apt.conf which contains:

    Acquire {
    Retries "0";
    HTTP {
    Proxy "http://proxyroxyport";
    };
    };

    to execute stuff as root on debian, you can either log in as root or configure sudo (and another link here)

    You can stop that happening by ticking the 'Disable smilies in text' option under additional post options

    Or you can type su, then when prompted enter the root password, then run the installer.

    Hi,

    I have set the Debian box to bypass the proxy to get out to the web.

    There are 2 options at the start of the FOG install and they are to select either Fedora/CentOS or Unbuntu and something else. I have selected Fedora/Centos. Is this correct?

    I am executing installfog.sh as root.

    Thanks

    UPDATE:

    Now reinstalled Debian and ensured Web Server was selected as an install option and now when running installfog.sh things are looking more prommissing.

    Now it is sitting at : Installing package: php5

    and has been for about 30 minutes.

    You need to select the Ubuntu option (Debian is what ubuntu is based on) in the fog setup. I've successfully installed fog on a debian box using the ubuntu selection in the installer.

    Centos/fedora uses the Yum package manager whereas debian/ubuntu use apt-get. If you choose the fedora/centos option (on a debian based system) in fog then the reason why it hangs while trying to download the packages is because the YUM package manager doesn't exist on debian based distros.
