Host Status is Unknow



  • Hi, I am having trouble fixing my host status, I am not sure how to fix it without braking the system because it currently needed to be running, but same time i want to get that fixed so i know what machines are up and running. I got unknown status across all machines on 3 servers. And I have read one forum and I tried but it didn’t work and I wasn’t sure what they meant to replace heading file but I tried to edit the file named resolve.conf , I replace nameserver with server ip address it didn’t work, we are hosting a server under a name fog118, fog119 and fog109. And I am not sure if I have to type in this names for it to work.

    @Mark-krikunov Did you actually verify that TCP port 445 is open on your clients?



  • @fry_p I do understand and just wanted to see if i can fix it, but currently its same as it is but I will just go with it and continue to use the system because the system works, i get images and i see no problems and I really look forward to 1.6.0 version of fog, I am really waiting for it be published.

    @Tom-Elliott I am aware of that, but it something just annoyed and drilled my eyes every time i looked at host list, so i just wanted that to be fixed. And i just made some holes in firewall so just waiting for some results to pop on screen.

    The hosts status is not perfect. But I want to mirror Tom’s comments by saying that the few developers that work on FOG focus currently on the fundamentals of imaging. I love these other features (and their quirks) but please understand that with the developers doing this on their own time, they must triage priorities.

    @Mark-krikunov You can enable port 445, and it should work.

    That all said, this “feature” isn’t a requirement or indicator of capability of imaging within your environment.



  • @Sebastian-Roth What if i make a rule for TCP port 445 that will allow connection, should it work after that or it still will have problem


  • Developer

    @Mark-krikunov FOG checks the online status of hosts by trying to connect to the machines on TCP port 445. If you have Windows firewall enabled this won’t work.
