New to Fog



  • I just starting with fog and have managed to get the software installed (ver 1.4.4) install on the Ubuntu desktop version. I could not get it to work on the server.
    I’ve been poking around and have a question. Do you need to pxe boot a desks top in order to capture or image a computer? We are currently using Microsoft Deployment Tools for our imaging and I can boot off a USB drive with boot file on it to get to the server.
    Also, Is the client needed as well to complete this process?
    I have tried installing the client on a Windows 10 VM and get the following error. “Unable to install CA certificate”
    thanks for any help you can offer.

    Yes. If that’s not possible for you, clonezilla would suite you better than FOG. FOG’s designed to remotely image thousands of systems and then configure all of those systems for you automatically. Clonezilla is doesn’t do that because it doesn’t scale, but Clonezilla is awesome at simply taking and putting images via USB.

    Also, Is the client needed as well to complete this process?

    No. But once you learn the power of the client, you’ll wonder how you managed to live without it.

    Try disabling antivirus. Also ensure you’re putting in the right fog IP address, and that the host is not pending in Host Management.
