SOLVED Fog Unifi controller compatibility


  • Many years have passed since I last attempted a FOG server, and I am not much more experienced on Linux than before. I have made progress, but now I am at an impasse.

    I am running FOG 1.5.7 on a Ubuntu 16.04 VM. The IP is accessible to my Lan.

    My router is a Unifi USG3 running the latest firmware. DHCP options 66, 67 appear to be working as required:

    As I have seen on many forum posts the PXE error “file not found” seems to be the bane of many FOG users, and it certainly has brought my efforts to a halt.

    I have also tried going with a bootable USB drive, which doesn’t boot the PXE client.

    Unsure what I should next try, but it seems many users resort to dnsmasq as a solution. Any insight or help would be very much appreciated.

    @Corrco You have the solution right there in your post. Filename in the picture is undionly.kxpe but should really be undionly.kpxe!!


  • Solved. OMG it’s so good to have another set of eyes on. Talk about not seeing the tree for the forest! I am watching first clone progress. This is far further than I was ever able to get with Symantec ghost - never could build their PXE client. Thank you so much Sebastian.
