  • RE: Multiple related issues with groups, domain join, image choice

    Answering some of these in reverse

    I am pretty sure that the default group apply settings do overwrite fields with the empty fields but I’m not 100% on that which is by design. i.e. maybe you want to remove the ad settings on all computers in a group, you’d want it to overwrite with blank fields. I don’t use that plugin, so I’m not sure if that was one of the things it does different or not, it may be. It would probably be moderately difficult to change that in the plugin, but that’s just a guess.

    The domain trust issues could be fog related or rather a mix of things. I would suggest double checking your user/password on the group2 domain settings. Sometimes if there is already a computer with the same name a problem occurs, not always as that is something that should be allowed. I would check the c:\fog.log on any of the machines that are getting the errors. See if there are any error messages when fog joins them to the domain.

    The first thing I would suggest trying is disabling the plugin and trying normal groups or just individual hosts for a couple hosts to isolate if the problem is in FOG or in the plugin. I would also double check the quick registration settings in the fog server and double check the default ad settings in the fog server, maybe they are set to group1 and its overwriting things at some point.

  • RE: Authenticate on FOG API

    What OS are you using to connect to the api?
    Shameless plug here for the api powershell module. I have a function called Set-FogServerSettings that helps with just inputting the api keys and it will handle the authentication from their with any function call. See the links in my signature. I originally made it cross-platform but it’s currently more windows oriented. Due to COVID-19 I am not working, which means I might have some free time (I say might because I also have a new baby). If you’re not running on windows I can dedicate some time to adding more linux support to the module since powershell core 6 and 7 are both cross platform on linux, mac, and windows.
    The module takes that simplified documentation and creates tab completable functions from the structure outlined in the documentation.

  • RE: update problem from 1.5.7 to 1.5.8

    @selestial Make sure you don’t use this account for working on the FOG server. It’s the FOG servers service account and should never be used to login to the machine!

    To re-set the login history data for this user to be able to finish the installer run sudo lastlog --user fogproject --clear

  • RE: UEFI pxe boot problem from a network

    @lebrun78 said in UEFI pxe boot problem from a network:

    The ip configuration is good when loaded !

    You mean when Windows boots it’s correct?

  • RE: Does FOG check free disk space before starting capture?

    @abulhol FOG doesn’t check the free disk space before capturing an image. We consider this something the admin needs to take care of. As well we can’t be really sure how much space a new image would actually take.

  • RE: Authenticate on FOG API

    @eseo-fcolas Found some time to take a look at this again. You are right about the documentation saying

    curl -H 'fog-api-token: AbCdE...' -H 'Authorization: Basic Zm9nOnBhc3N3b3Jk' -X GET http://fogserver/fog/system/status
    success
    

    Works as well as the following call on my FOG test server (currently a Fedora 30 VM):

    curl -H 'fog-api-token: AbCdE...' -u fog:password -X GET http://192.168.2.30/fog/system/status
    success
    

    Are you sure you are using the fog web UI user’s password when testing?

    I would say this is working as intended and described in the API documentation. But if you still see the same issue happen I may ask you to provide information in the FOG version you use and Linux OS (we see Ubuntu in the headers but which version)?

    I remember we had a more general API issue on Ubuntu servers some time ago. But back then it wouldn’t succeed with the api-user-token either and I don’t expect you to have that same issue.

  • RE: Windows Dirty Bit error after last windows update

    @tricyphona Have you tried disabling fast boot in Win 10 and do a full chkdsk before capturing? Is the partition on the client nearly full?

    @plegrand Ops, I forgot to post here. This should be fixed in dev-branch now…

  • RE: Mysql Default password

    @Wayne-Workman Thanks heaps for mentioning this here! We should really update that wiki page to help people fix this. Newer versions of MySQL/MariaDB behave very different and we have changed the old way of using an empty DB password.
