One question that does spring to mind tho is with fog does it change the host name of a machine in fog would that take effect at the time of boot or at the time of reimaging?
The FOG Client (if installed) will also enforce hostnames. If you change the hostname in the web interface, the FOG Client will make the change on the remote system. If the hostname on the remote system gets changed, the FOG Client will re-set it to what you have defined in the web interface. If the system is also domain-joined, the FOG Client will also rename the computer’s object in Active Directory too.
That might just be the solution. Not sure why, but I had the perception that having a db with no password was the recomanded way. Again, thanks for helping me out and for developing and giving support to this fantastic tool!
