Nope it’s still heavily in the beta phase, I bet when we do have an idea we will post it on the forums or on the main site letting everyone know we are close. There is a thread you are more than welcome to monitor it can be located here ->http://fogproject.org/forum/threads/latest-fog-0-33b.6476/
@Wayne-Workman - I’m in the same boat as you, I have played with the plugin code, and can’t figure it out. I’m pretty green when it comes to PHP though. At this point, I have made a new table (inventoryexpanded) to store ALL inventory information (both the inventory information that FOG already manages, as well as the bits that I want to track that FOG doesn’t track). I have a python script that runs every 5 minutes and does a one way sync from the FOG tables to the inventoryexpanded table. Then the php pages that edit or create new records update the FOG tables upon execution.
I will update this thread with more information on schemas and code once I have completed the project, in case someone wants to use my code, or expand on my ideas…
At this point, the only thing I’m missing is an icon to link from the FOG menu to the inventory_expanded.php page.
I can’t figure out for the life of me how to accomplish this. I was hoping it would be as easy as making a dummy plugin that just creates the icon and link, but I failed completely at attempting that.
Any help/assistance/suggestions you all can provide would be greatly appreciated!
But much to my horror, the FOG client will task restart the host when connected to Wi-Fi, which ends up in a boot-loop and a very concerned end-user.
So to avoid this, just don’t create imaging tasks for laptops unless they are hooked up to the network with a patch cable, and leave all your MACs enabled so you can still use snapins.
I don’t know what your setup looks like or how your operations go where you are, but the way I did laptops in great numbers was I hooked up an 8 port 1Gbps switch on a big table, hooked that up to the building network, setup myself some power strips and some laptop adapters, and I used my pre-made FOG Groups to queue all of the turned-off laptops for unicast imaging. Then I hooked up 8 at a time and powered them on. When one completed imaging & domain joining & snapins, I shut it down afterwards and hooked up another.
@Fernando-Gietz While, theoretically possible, the password in the db is there as nothing more than a show. The password is not encrypted. It’s hashed, and a hash cannot be brought back to the password. You would have to brute force until you found a match and even then we are checking if the type is valid. So it IS possible, but very very unlikely.
Thank you very much for your replies. I think that the complexity of implementing this kind of security measure doesn’t worth the time. Perhaps just restricting access to several subnets is more than enough.
I will go that way.
yes I looked at fog transfert code too because I managed to connect glpi and fog but it’s not working further
and I’m not good enough with mysql to correct what’s wrong
anyway thanks for the tip of csv import
