Incorporating into Existing Environment
I’ve used FOG in the past and have absolutely enjoyed it, but I’ve never set it up myself in the past. I have a in-place DHCP server and I understand I need to modify the DHCCP Server Options to have options #66 and #67 enabled, but how will this affect the current systems in production? I assume that only devices with PXE boot selected as their highest priority will see this change. Any information about how this process works would be greatly appreciated!
The only time you will impact current systems in production is if your current environment relies on dhcp next-server (option 66) or boot-file (option 67) or uses ProxyDHCP (udp port 4011) to communicate configuration files to your booting devices (such as a voip phone needing to find the pbx system to get its configuration file). If a booting device never attempts to get booting information from dhcp then there is no impact.
Having FOG and either Microsoft’s WDS or SCCM on the same network will cause conflicts.
@njohnson Yes, setting DHCP options 66 and 67 will only affect PXE booting devices. Please use a search engine to find out more about PXE booting and how this works. The information is available on the web.
PS: I moved this topic as this has nothing to do with Windows as far as I see it.
