Doubt rejoin domain AD



  • Dear, how does the fog client work when deploy is executed on a host that was previously joined to the AD domain?
    I before deploy I need to delete the host name of AD?



  • @george1421 Thank you!
    As a precaution I have created all my images outside A.D

    SOLVED

    @luiztpd said in Doubt rejoin domain AD:

    @george1421 All the reference images I created are not associated with AD.

    I imagine the following scenario:

    1 - I have standard images that are not associated with Ad;
    2 - I capture the image on a computer “A” for the first time and it is inserted in the AD normally;

    No problem to this point

    3- Months later I need to clone host “A” again, can I have problems? how does client fog handle it?

    If you are cloning it back to the same hardware (such as a backup), no problem.

    If you are installing a new refernece image on the same host “A” no problem.

    If you are recapturing host “A” to send out to host “N” (cloning it one to many) then you will have a problem.

    If you need to do as in the last condition, you can either disconnect it from the domain, capture and redeploy - or - recreate your reference image from scratch when you need to make an update to your reference image. In my case I use Windows MDT to create my reference image each time using the lite touch approach to image creation.

    @luiztpd This is not a fog client issue only. You will have problems in the future if your reference image was one attached to AD before you captured it for deployment. The issue is that when you connect your reference/mother/golden image to AD, the AD domain is imprinted onto the reference computer. Then when send that reference image to other computers this imprint will be also on every computer. So its best practice to NOT connect you reference image to AD before capture.

    If you MUST connect it to AD during reference image setup, be sure to disconnect it from AD and remove its AD account before image capture.

    Then the fog client will be able to attach the computer to AD normally.
