Fog not joining my PCs to the domain



  • Hi

    Created an XP SOE, Sysprepped etc as per writeup on the wiki

    Setup the host, and completed the AD attributes using a Fog crypted password.

    No matter what i do, the machine images, sysprep runs, it reboots, gets to login screen, sits for a bit then reboots, but no domain join

    see log from a machine i just done

    Make sure the account you are using to join computers has been delegated rights to add and remove computer accounts to the domain. A default user can only add so many before being denied and cannot remove or modify any computer accounts.



  • It looks like it is doing what mine does. I get the same error on some of my windows 7 machines. Once rebooted, they join without problem. Just ran into this today so unsure as to what is causing it as of yet.



  • I am certainly no expert on the FOG Service (although it does work fine for me) but I would venture to guess that your image was joined to the domain/network before it was uploaded. This is not the way to do it; it should be joined to a WORKGROUP (any workgroup).

    I have had co-workers swear up and down that “it was [U][B]not[/B][/U] joined to the domain and that it [U][B]was[/B][/U] joined to WORKGROUP” before uploading the image. Then we go and check it and they put:

    Member of:
    Domain:
    WORKGROUP

    Workgroup:
    (blank, greyed out)

    Obviously this is wrong…

    I am not saying for sure that is your problem, but maybe. It does look like the FOG service successfully changed the name of your workstation; it was just not able to join the domain.

    In my environment I have had the best results with the FQDN as the FOG_AD_DEFAULT_DOMAINNAME and the FQDN%USERNAME% as the FOG_AD_DEFAULT_USER (example):

    FOG_AD_DEFAULT_DOMAINNAME: scrantonpa.internal.contoso.com – Not just [B]scrantonpa[/B] (primary domain name)
    FOG_AD_DEFAULT_USER: scrantonpa.internal.contoso.com\contosoadmin

    Also make sure that your user account (contosoadmin in my example) has full AD privileges to join machines to the domain; IMHO that account does need to be a Domain Admin.

    Also the “FOG Passkey” cannot be the same as the password for your Domain Admin account. I foolishly tried this once and it would not work. After I just changed the “FOG Passkey” to something different and re-encrypted my AD password, everything worked great!

    Also you did copy over hostnamechange.dll to the FOG service installation directory after you re-compiled it, correct? You MUST have that in place and often people, myself included, forget that step when installing the FOG service on a new image.

    Cheers!
