Thanks for the reply. We have chainloading implemented. The problem turned out to be a missing file or files that weren’t copied correctly during the setup phase. Re-copying the files fixed the issue. Thanks again.
You really should be using FOG 0.32 and sysprep’ing your images.
I would be using 1 image for all rooms, as long as they are from the same hardware set.
Simply enable / disable the ‘Hostname Changer’ service per Host.
In regards to the Hostname Changer not working:
Open or preferably ‘tail’: c:\fog.log
Look for: HostnameChanger
Are there any errors reported? It may take a few minutes for errors to appear.
[quote=“rixter, post: 474, member: 168”]Blackout, are you sure this isn’t an initrd issue? I was thinking I had some issue where I changed out my init file and it took care of something similar to this.[/quote]
No Its just my best guess
Am I reading this right, you have windows and debian on the same pc, and on that pc you have fog installed and you want to ghost the windows partiton from the same pc that fog+debian is on? Maybe pulling your hard drive from the other pc, installing it in the pc with windows 7 on it, booting to debian (not windows) and learning how partimage works would be your best option here… You really need fog on a seperate PC than you are trying to pull a ghost from…
Thanks! but turns out my WOL wasn’t working because I had to update the driver of the NIC card, and then it only works during standby and hibernate… also, my switches were of the unmanaged type, so i didn’t have problems
I just upgraded to the latest and it worked. i dont think there was something wrong with the old version coz it was working before. may be installing the new version has fixed some error in my old installation.
