FTP connection to Storage Server has failed!
I wonder if anybody in the know might be able to point me in the right direction with this one.
We recently stuck some new hard drives in our Fog server. Mike did a fresh install of Debian Lenny and then restored the data and mysql database from our backup server.
Everything the Fog server has to do works great apart from one thing, we can't upload images... but it only fails on the last 1%! From what I have observed it will create the image in the /images/dev/ directory but then cannot move and rename the image, reporting on the screen of the client "FTP connection to Storage Server has failed!"
I have checked that Fog has the correct FTP login on the settings page, and I can connect to the server using this login and an FTP client without any difficulty. It does seem clear to me that Fog *can* access the FTP server because it manages to upload all of the data; if I manually move and rename the image file it creates then it will deploy without issue.
If anyone has any idea what it is I'm missing please let me know... I've spent a couple of hours asking google questions and not finding the answer!
FTP connection to Storage Server has failed! - Solved
I'm just begining with FOG (just found it) and installed version 0,28. I could not get 0.29 to work as it gave me an gettext and clamav-update error.

So, this FTP password is not in "other information menu". Here resides the TFTP password that also needs to be changed in order to set tasks as upload or download images.
FTP password, on the other hand, is on "storage management" menu. In my case i only have the default storage set so just edit it and change the FTP password.
Hope it can help.
Thanks for all those who created and maintain this excellent software.
