@lacazet2k said in Laptops for home , advice ??:
will they still be able to pull an image while out of the local network
The short answer is NO. They must be connected to a network where pxe booting is enabled as well as be in full communication with the FOG server. FOG doesn’t support one-off imaging off site.
Well, I feel stupid right now. I seemed to restart the services on the wrong server because when I restarted all the FOG services on both on my Node and Storage, the errors in the logs dissapeared. Even did a test multicast session, started imaging right away with WOL and PXE. So marking solved on my part.
Currently running Version 220.127.116.11
on Ubuntu v 18.04.3
I am picking up from the previous FOG deployer so I am still learning how to get around the application. I’ve successfully deployed images and snapins but now I am trying to add a snapin. I was able to add a simple .zip file snap in and deploy it. However, now I am trying to add a install.exe as a Snapin.
The .exe is roughly 900,000 kb.
Storage group - primary
Snapin type - normal
Snapin File is able to be added
Snapin File (exists) is selected as I copied the .exe to the FOG server.
Snapin Arguments - /S
Snapin Enabled - Checked
Snapin Timeout - 0
Replicate - Checked
Reboot after install - Checked
When I click the “Add” button, nothing happens. The computer slows down a little bit for a couple of seconds then nothing.
I’ve changed my permissions to -777 in the folder for that .exe
I’ve increased the upload_max_filesize and post_max_size to 3000M.
