Configuration of IP Addresses Statically When Computer has Multiple Network Interfaces and Assigning and configuration of dedicated-IP Address to FOG Server



  • Configuration of IP Addresses Statically When Computer has Multiple Network Interfaces and Assigning and configuring of dedicated-IP Address to FOG Server



  • @Sebastian-Roth

    Dear Sir(Sebastian-Roth),

    I understood (Not Everything) what you explained about My Questions…

    You explained that not to define DNS Address in My Network Scenario…
    But I already defined it with this Address10.10.1.2

    Now Whether it is possible to remove it OR let it be as it is…?

    Kind Hardheartedly Thank you For In Time Help…

    Kind Regards,

    Basavaraj, From India.

    @Basavarajnc Sure I will answer your questions. Just didn’t have enough time yesterday.

    1. Is it required Router Address for FOG Server While Configuring IP Address For enp1s0?

    No it’s not in your case. You have a second network interface enp3s0 and a proper route set there. You don’t need a route on enp1s0.

    1. FOG asks a Router Address for DHCP Server?[y/N]… Here I said No Because I have not mentioned Gateway Address in enp1s0

    Be aware of this being two different things. On question one we were talking about setting a route® for enp1s0 (or that network). But this questions asks if you also want to set a router address in the DHCP config which means the router address the DHCP server would send out to your clients when handing out IP address information to them. I don’t have enough information to answer this question properly. Should your clients in the 192.168.147.0 network also have internet access or not? If the clients are only in that subnet to be imaged then there is no need to send router information with DHCP. If clients in 192.168.147.0 network need to access internet then you need to say Yes here, send FOG server IP (192.168.147.XXX) as router in the DHCP, plus configure your FOG server to be a router: (settings are lost after reboot, see on the web on how to make those permanent)

    echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
    iptables -P FORWARD ACCEPT
    iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o enp3s0 -j MASQUERADE
    
    1. FOG asks -> Would you like DHCP to handle DNS? [Y/n]… Here I said Yes
      Again FOG asks -> What DNS address should DHCP allow[10.10.1.2]… Here I Pressed Enter Button… FOG has taken Default DNS…i.e. 10.10.1.2

    Same as question number two this is about the IP information your DHCP server sends to the clients. If clients don’t need internet access you can say No here but sending DNS information should not cause much problems. In a way it’s wrong to send 10.10.1.2 as DNS but not send router information in DHCP (question 2.). This way clients think they can use DNS but 10.10.1.2 is not reachable for them.

    5)My Kind Request is > What is standard Configuration For FOG Server ?

    Standard is not using multiple interfaces. With different networks there is no thing like “standard configuration”. It all depends on how you want to structure the networks. Should clients on 192.168.147.0 network be able to access the internet or not?

    1. One More Request is > What is standard Configurations need to be done For FOG Server… So FOG Server gives BEST Performance?

    Again, it’s not easy to answer your question about standard configurations because we don’t know your situation.

    Dear Sir,

    Please kindly do the reply to My Questions… Here… In this Sections… I have some doubts… Please Do Help. It is My Gratitude to you Sir…

    Actually I am Studying on FOG Server Extra Extra… It is needed for me to get Improve Myself in my Technical Field.

    Thanking you Sir,

    Basavaraj From India.



  • @Sebastian-Roth

    Dear Sir,
    I would like to request you to help me… I have some doubts…

    What exactly is your question? ->

    #This enp1s0 is for FOG SERVER (Static)

    auto enp1s0

    iface enp1s0 inet static

    address 192.168.147.XXX
    netmask 255.255.255.0
    network 192.168.147.0
    broadcast 192.168.147.255

    #This enp3s0 is for Our Organization to access Internet and Local Sharing Extra #Extra… (Static)

    auto enp3s0

    iface enp3s0 inet static

    address 10.12.2.XX
    netmask 255.255.254.0
    network 10.12.2.0
    broadcast 10.12.3.255
    gateway 10.12.2.XX
    dns-nameservers 10.10.1.XX 8.8.8.8

    I configured above IP Addresses statically and
    ran the sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart

    OUTPUT : It gives OK message …Everthing is running properly and correctly.

    Now My Questions Are :

    1. Is it required Router Address for FOG Server While Configuring IP Address For enp1s0?

    2. FOG asks a Router Address for DHCP Server?[y/N]… Here I said No Because I have not mentioned Gateway Address in enp1s0Is it correct way of
      understanding of myself?

    3. FOG asks -> Would you like DHCP to handle DNS? [Y/n]… Here I said Yes
      Again FOG asks -> What DNS address should DHCP allow[10.10.1.2]… Here I Pressed Enter Button… FOG has taken Default DNS…i.e. 10.10.1.2–>> Is it correct way of understanding of myself?

    5)My Kind Request is > What is standard Configuration For FOG Server ?

    1. One More Request is > What is standard Configurations need to be done For FOG Server… So FOG Server gives BEST Performance?

    I would like to request you sir to answer my doubts…

    Warm Regards,

    @Basavarajnc What exactly is your question?

    Yes you can install FOG on a server with multiple interfaces. Make sure you have that one interface configured correctly (static is advised) before you run the installer.

    just to be clear, the fog server can have multiple interfaces, but only one may be defined for imaging. That interface and IP address should not change after FOG is installed or your fog server will not work correctly.
