[HELP]Using FOG with diferent VLAN´s



  • Hello, i have a question about how to use correctly FOGServer in diferent VLAN´s scenario, is there any manual or good practice on this ?

    Just to exemplify and understand what i’m saying(this is not my real scenerio):
    An network with 4 different Vlan´s in the enviroment
    VLAN 0: LAN Network
    VLAN 1: Guest Network
    VLAN 2: Administrative Network
    VLAN 3: Computer lab network

    It´s possible to use an one FOGServer in the entire network and manage the all clients in these networks ? If yes, what are the best practices and configurations for installing FOGServer ?

    Thank you very much for the attention and for this great tool that helps a lot of IT professionals.

    Just circling back to the original issue. Can you ping from a device on the 200 network to a device on the 172 network?

    If not, what do you have as your layer 3 device?

    Yes, i can ping from device in 200 network to and 172 network.
    My layer 3 device is a pfSense Server controlling the network.

  • Today I have configured in my FOGServer two Storages Nodes for my networks, being a net 172.xxx for vlan x and defined as Master, as it is the network that I have the most use with FOG, and another storage node in the network 200.yyy that It is not the Master Node, therefore, I have some machines on this network, but the problem is that sometimes, who is on this 200 network the first time they will try to clone or recover it, it searches for the IP of the Master node (172. xxx) giving error and restarting operation … usually on the second boot it finds and pulls the second IP 200 running right the clone / restore. My question is whether it’s right anyway and is it to be anyway, or is there a better practice when setting up FOGServer so that every computer on your network gets its proper IP node right the first time?

    @igorpa2 The short answer is yes it is possible as long as all of the vlans are routable to a single fog server. If any of these vlans are isolated from the fog server, imaging ins’t possible. The way the FOG server is programmed, the FOG server must have a single IP address for all vlans (subnet). Multihomed FOG servers are not currently possible.

    George, thanks for the reply. Is there any manual or step-by-step good practice for this?
    Thanks!!!

  • @Sebastian-Roth Yes, you are right. I want to deploy images and if possible, to use all functionalities of the FOG…
    Thanks for the reply…waiting for instructions…

    @igorpa2 Probably you have clients in all those VLANs/subnets and want to deploy images to those, right?

    Just today I was collecting other people’s requests for multi-homed setups. See here: https://forums.fogproject.org/topic/12580/multi-network-cloning-with-1-server
