It allows you to have a “master” FOG server that you could point all clients to (in terms of the FOG client installed on the computers), but have them image from the server at their building. If you have a computer at your office for repair, you could also switch its location while it’s there to image and then switch it back once it’s returned to the building. We use this plugin very successfully with 24 sites, although we only have two FOG servers total since our WAN links are all 1Gb or better.
If I were in your shoes, I’d rebuild the server. This thread has been open for 8+ hours when a server rebuild would fix it in under 4. It’s just my opinion, but again if it were me, I’d cut my losses and rebuild.
@Wayne-Workman I’m getting multiple tabs as well, and while I can see my search terms in the URL in the first tab, the page itself is always blank. I suppose there could be zero results for what I’m searching, but everything I search for?

@Wayne-Workman Can you please see if the files /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow are actually changed when running the installer? Can you take a copy of those files, run the installer and then compare the files?
Edit: Can you please run this on your storage node and see what you get useradd -s "/bin/bash" -d "/home/fog" fog && echo "YES"
If you see ‘YES’ it means that the command useradd returned fine although the user already exists. Just a wild guess. Maybe I am on the wrong path here.
