Group deploy single snapin
As of version 0.32, you can only deploy all snapins to a group of PCs.
I’d like to be able to deploy one snapin to all PCs in a group.
Example: Systems are all working fine, professor says labs need new piece of software for a class, I create a snapin for the software and want to push it out to labs via FOG.
There is way to do this. I found the answer on this very forum. You essentially modify the PHP code to include the link to the “deploy single snapin” found in the host section. I forget the exact file to modify, but search in this forum, you will find it…
Here are the scripts I’ve been working on. extract this and move the bin/ directory to the root of your fog directory. You’ll have to set the DOCUMENT_ROOT variable to your apache DOCROOT, but it will let you query snapins, groups, hosts, add a snapin by host or group, and remove a queued snapin.
I’ve written some CLI scripts to do this with 0.32. I wanted to be able to schedule repeated tasks. shutdown mostly. When I’m done I’ll clean them up and post the CLI stuff
If there is a way to do it, I’m not aware of it.
Can anyone confirm this is possible? If so please leave instructions.
you used to be able to do this I’m sure, can’t you do it now?
