@eseelke While I do understand all of those topics are kind of related in your point of view they are actually not and I think it’s way better to open a new topic for each of them. Easier to follow and answer if things aren’t mixed up.
I’ll quickly answer the questions for now but wait with the details until you opened those different topics. Give them names according to what each of them is really about!
I have Quick Registration set to apply hostname, image, and group. It does all of this, but it will start pulling the image from the master host and not the local storage. Is there a way to force this?
How did you make quick registration to apply the group setting to a host? Maybe this customization is preventing the location plugin to work properly. There is no other way to force this other than setting the correct location in the host’s settings.
I have a small 1GB ISO for diagnostics in the menu. It works, but it always pulls it from the master host. I have it stored in each replicated storage. Is there a way to tell it to use local storage instead of master?
This has been discussed recently. The FOG menu is mostly pulled from the master node. You need to tell it to load the ISO from storage nodes explicitly.
For above ISO, is there a way to script it, so it pushes to each replication share at creation, rather than manually having to push it? Possibly, have it check the master and if file newer, push out to each?
George answered this already.
I have the FOG client installed on each system, but it doesn’t seem to check-in. I am only needing this in order to remotely shutdown or reboot systems. The log file on the client is blank. How can I troubleshoot this?
fog.log file is empty the fog-client has never ever started on this machine. Windows XP is pretty old. Does it even have .NET Framework 4.5.2 (fog-client used 4.0 up until version 0.11.19 but we switched to 4.5.2 with release 0.12.0). Did the installation succeed? Is the service installed and enabled?
As mentioned above I ask you to open different topics so we can discuss things in depth separately.
