I believe the problem is related to the Install Path setting for your management node:
Management Nodes > Edit Management Node Information > Edit

Based on the paths being used, I'm guessing yours is set to 'storage/x86'. Where does the partimage .gz file reside? If it actually resides in '/storage/image/x86' then change the Install Path setting to 'storage'.

The .tmpl file residing in this directory may indicate another problem with the xCAT root path. Where is xCAT installed and which version of xCAT are you using? Search your log file for 'xCAT root path found:'. What path does this line contain?

Regards,
Andy

Re: Change image timeout



The command that is being executed to check the size should be:
du -c /storage/x86/image/x86/winvista-Windows7FacStaff49-v0*

Try running this. What output does it generate? The last line should look like:
xxxx total

The code appears to be finding the 'total' line but is either not parsing it correctly, not calculating the size correctly, or the du command isn't correct.

Also, it would be helpful if you include the output from:
ls -l /storage/x86/image/x86/winvista-Windows7FacStaff49-v0*

So you never answered whether you watched the capture occurring from the

What about any other error messages for the rest of the log capture for
this imaging request?

So you can do an "ls -l /storage/x86/image/x86/winvista-Windows7FacStaff49-v0" and it shows some

size?

RE: Change image timeout



From these lines in the log, it's indicating that the capture hasn't started:

12:31:01|9225|144:178|image|xCAT.pm:get_image_size(3146)|returning image

size: 0 MB (4 bytes)
2010-05-10
12:31:01|9225|144:178|image|xCAT.pm:capture_monitor(1258)|image

size is the same: 0=0, copy may be complete
2010-05-10
12:31:01|9225|144:178|image|xCAT.pm:capture_monitor(1238)|image

copy not complete, sleeping for 30 seconds

Notice the image size is 0 MB, meaning the partimage save isn't
occurring.
After 20 minutes of nothing being saved, it gives up. Can you watch the capture from the server console to verify that the PXE boot is running
and
that it's booting into the image capture mode? Do the log entries at the

beginning of the imaging process show any errors?

Roger,

By image uploads do you mean capturing a new image? From what I've observed with ours, as long as the image file size is increasing on the management node, it assumes the capture is still proceeding and
continues
to check.

Do you have vcld.log output you can provide from when the problem
occurs?
