Just tested tftp client frm Windows 7 in one of these HP dc7900p computers, and it worked.
After testing all this, it’s working.
Don’t ask me why or how… but it started working.
Thank you all for your support.
[quote=“pmonstad, post: 26357, member: 17422”]Again, no critizism about 0.33B. It is very nice and powerful and a lot better than 0.32. I just try to find out how it works. All my questions/feedbacks are not because I dislike/disagree how it works now, but more a question if it works as expected or if it is a bug. It is a beta/release candidate and I thought feedbacks were welcome even if they not always are bugs…[/quote]
They are welcome, but if you keep throwing information at us without researching if it IS a bug or without ASKING if it is a bug and just assuming and then posting topics like crazy because you don’t understand, you leave us all a little frustrated, and maybe even lead to topics or posts being ignored.
We are more than willing to help you to understand, there some walkthroughs tailored towards individuals that have never used FOG before, and that would be a great place to start.
Please familiarize yourself with the documentation, then come back and ask questions that you don’t understand.
fog_0.33b is still in beta/release candidate, that is correct, and we do want to fix as many bugs as possible. And you can REALLY help us by trying to recreate your issue a couple times. Document how you arrived at the issue, and then attempt to solve it. Make sure to document your steps in solving, as this will help us to help others and to ultimately fix the problem.
Since this is a beta you shouldn’t use it for production anyway, and if you do be prepared to break it and fix it many times, and possibly re-install just as many. Coming to us with a resolve for an issue you found holds a much greater merit than one just saying hey this doesn’t work.
I follow. So you would either have to do some odd multiple boot/reboot thing to set a task from the host or set tasks from the server which could then do its musical kernel dance. That’s a bit more than I have the time or knowledge for right now, but its good to know the support is out there.
I’ve followed your instructions ritchy_purple however I found that this broke group scheduled tasks. Single host scheduled tasks still ran but group ones would not as the script no longer returns a list of hosts that are members of the group.
I’ve written some more in-depth instructions and a solution (based on this thread) that gets both the Web GUI and group scheduled tasks working
Not sure if you’re already aware, but I’ve changed the way this get’s displayed when you “deploy” a task. It takes the task type and displays “<TASKTYPENAME> task created for [U]<HOSTNAME>[/U] with image [U]<IMAGENAME>[/U]”. Hopefully this is more descriptive as it tells you exactly what task has been “Deployed”
Windows Vista and up have some built in VB scripts now to handle printer installations. Perhaps a rewrite can be done to use those built in scripts? Here’s a sample of a local install script using those.
Now this is a .bat which Copies the required script files (needed for XP/2000) and printer drivers locally, then installs the printer locally.
Included is a .zip of the printer management scripts, but you can find them in the system32 folder of any version of windows vista and newer.
