upgrading to 1.4.x - fog client version?
We are using Fog old trunk 5370. It has worked on everything I have thrown at it and it has a few of my own hacks in there (murdering partition tables on fresh never used drives for example). I am looking at moving to 1.4.0 but I have one reservation, is the fog client enforced? We still use the legacy client as I never had much success with the non-legacy version. There are many machines on our network using the legacy client.
building a brand new FOG server to supplement the old one.

@wayne-workman just a note (apologies for gravedig).
I never got round to upgrading FOG over the summer and TBH I might look at building a brand new FOG server to supplement the old one.
However, we are rolling out windows 10 1709 and am STILL using FOG 5370 with the legacy client. Everything works just fine as before (I cannot remember when I installed 5370 but it is quite a few years ago now…)
@KKTwenty101 the new client has come a long way. The old one isn’t maintained anymore, will not work with Windows 10, is not efficient in medium setups and larger, and has been proven to be insecure.
You will have better success with the new client this time around - it’s time to make the move.

When you upgrade to FOG 1.4 it will also upgrade the client that is on the server; however, you can disable the module that auto updates the client on the machines. The old client should still work, but I would test the new client. There shouldn’t be any issues.
