Is there any FOG forum in German language?



  • Hi @ all,
    I am an absolutly newcomer in the linuxworld and I was very happy when I was lucky with installing ubuntu 12.04 and FOG-Server. I think configure the FOG was O.K but now nothing functions :-((
    And I googled many hours, but I always found threads only in English language but my English is too bad.

    I want to creat an image of a WinXP-mashine and I go to task-management click “list all hosts” the host I want to create an image from is listed. But if I click “upload” I always get the error: "Unable to start task Unable to located master node from storage group."
    Please help if possible in German language.
    Best regards

  • I deleted the fog config file, reinstalled fog and set the fog-server as dhcp-server this time. And now everything is fine. Thanks.



  • There was a question about DHCP during fog-installation but I didn`t set any IP. I think this is the problem. Where can I change this. Should I start the fog installation again? And I think after fixing the problem I have to install the fog service at the windows client again.

    Only one device should be serving DHCP. Either FOG or your router, but not both. Pick one and disable DHCP on the other.



  • No error message but it seems like client is searching a DHCP-Server and doesn`t find any. In what file can I set the IP-Adresse of the DHCP-Server. and should I take the Fog-servers ip or my routers ip?
    At the client I found a file with name
    fog.log
    Here is the content:

    any error message when booting from LAN? Does your client get IP address from DHCP server?



  • First boot order in bios is PXE but the client doesnt boot from network. When I had ubuntu 12.04 it did. What can I do now?


  • Moderator

    Boot to LAN or network boot. Choose option from menu to perform full host registration and inventory.



  • O.K. Was a hard job ;-) but I finished installation of the fog-server. I`m not shure whether I answered all the questions correctly but hope I can fix it later if something was wrong. After fog-installation I installed the fog-service at a windows-client.
    But the client only boots into windows :-(
    What can I do now?

  • [quote=“chad-bisd, post: 8695, member: 18”]most of FOG admin is all done through the Web user interface, so there is no need for a GUI.

    but if you must,

    sudo apt-get install gnome-desktop-environment

    no reason to keep /opt/fog either.[/quote]

    I`m not even able to start a webbrowser from commandline therefor I need gnome.
    If there is no reason to copy the fog folder from where or how can I get fog now?
    thanks

  • [quote=“chad-bisd, post: 8658, member: 18”]Server[/quote]
    I`m going on to install ubuntu 10.04 During installation there is the question "What software should be installed:
    DNS server
    LAMP server
    Mail server
    and so on"
    Is there any software I should select?
    If installation and upgrade is successful is it possible to copy the fog folder which I saved from ubuntu 12.04 to an external hdd or is there an other way to install fog?
    Best regards and thanks very much

    Ubuntu 12.04 hat Probleme mit TFTP und einige Paket Veränderungen, die nicht immer gut mit FOG. Ubuntu 10.04 LTS funktioniert super und ist die am meisten auf den Foren unterstützt.
