Fog Client - Silent Install - With IP Address/other settings?
According to the wiki, you can run “setup.exe fog-defaults=true /qb”, which does install the client, but since its the defaults, no IP address is configured. Is there a way to run the silent install and add the IP address? It would be a great bonus to be able to set the other options, as well. I would just like to install the client at the end of my Windows 7 sysprep instead of installing it before deployment.
We leave the ip address field blank. The installer looks for fogserver by default. Regardless of the actual server name I put an A Host record in my dns server to point to fog. This has solved tons of problems for us.
you can edit the complete config.ini and recompile the msi pakage.
(If you edit the ip address the msi will not set the two fog paths, so you need to hardcode them into the config.ini)
This is because setup searches for x.x.x.x entry if this is not existing it will not set the two paths.
Also you can add a a-record alias to your dns server (point hostname fogserver to your fog server ip address) then you need to change nothing because fogserver is the default hostname.
ganesh, I am not looking for IP address info. I’m looking at how to add the IP address to the fog installer, preferably with a command-line switch.
x23piracy, neat change, but that does not solve the problem. That allows for quicker updates, but still requires the ip address be entered in manually (or via some other means like pushing out the config from a GPO). Otherwise, the client will never connect, at all.
SilentSoul’s method is the best, although those directions are out of date since Winstall LE no longer exists.
Then you can push it out any way you want, gpo, script, or just have an installer that doesn’t ask for anything when you run it.http://www.ip-details.com. It gives the ip address and
location details such as country, state/region, city and the location specific map.
I’m using the instructions here:
