We are using a NAS Synology to share the printers drivers. It’s a share accessible without password (guest account enable on the NAS). We’ve got no access problem to this share at anytime.
This NAS is joined to the domain… And here is the problem !
As soos as we unjoined the NAS from the domain, FOG printers are pushed without problem.
I don’t know why but if you execute printui command as local system account when the drivers files are shared on a NAS member of a domain, there is an access error. If you try the same command as local Administrator, it works…
So unjoining the NAS from the domain was the solution.
The information under Active Directory Section are not stored on DDBB.
I inspect the web page from Firefox, and I can see that the fields under Active Diretory section are writted out of the form… then they don’t be added to the $_POST array and are stored as empty values…
@gn_ro Not exactly sure why you run into this issue but looking through the code and searching the web for this error message I might have an idea what’s going on. After the deployment (through partclone.dd in this case) FOS looks for any NTFS partition, tries to mount it and see if it can modify registry files to change the hostname of the machine (pre Windows boot up!). This feature is called “early hostname change” and can be turned off. In the FOG web UI go to FOG Configuration -> FOG Settings -> section General Settings -> uncheck CHANGE HOSTNAME EARLY and save settings.
Unfortunately this can only be turned on and off globally. Most people want to keep that turned on and so might you for most of your machines. But I think it’s appropriate for you to quickly turn it off whenever you need to deploy that special machine.
