INQUIRY: Network


  • Developer

    @Dv27842 Can you please take a picture of the screen and post that here? It’s very hard to guess at what stage you exactly are at the moment.



  • @Sebastian-Roth I was finally able to get it. I am at the confirm tasking menu now. I am not sure I understand the tasking. So, if you can give me more information ti make sure I am choosing the correct option, let me know. Thank you.

  • @Sebastian-Roth I created the images associated with the hosts, but it is still directing me to host info.

    When I click on capture in the task tab I am routed to the Host general information.

    This is usually because there is no image associated to this host. Make sure you create an image definition in the web UI, associate the host with this and then capture the image data.

    Also, would I need to fill out everything on the general host information such as host product key, kernel arguments, Host init, host primary key, BIOS, EFI exit type?

    Nope, all those mentioned can be left as default.



  • @Sebastian-Roth sorry for the confusion again. I was trying to fix the issue quickly, so I know that it did not make sense. I have created the hosts, but I am not sure how to capture the image. When I click on capture in the task tab I am routed to the Host general information. Do I have to export hosts? Also, would I need to fill out everything on the general host information such as host product key, kernel arguments, Host init, host primary key, BIOS, EFI exit type?

    @Dv27842 I am very sorry but I still cannot make sense of what you are saying. It’s probably some language thing. Would you mind posting in your native language and we try to use some kind of translator.

    As a workaround I have added the host machines by finding the MAC addresses.

    As I have said, you need to manually add hosts either through the PXE boot menu or by adding them on the web UI using the MAC address. There is only one other way partly automatic adding of hosts if you have the fog-client software installed. You’d still need to approve a new host in the web UI.

    I have the machines that is reading it as a windows machine, but it is on linux.

    I suppose you mean the icon in the hosts list. Don’t worry about that too much. The online and OS check is not that great. As FOG is not really a client management tool we don’t pay too much attention on this feature.



  • @Sebastian-Roth I am guessing it does not matter if I have the set default IP as long as its in some type of nano file and set to default gateway. As a workaround I have added the host machines by finding the MAC addresses. I have the machines that is reading it as a windows machine, but it is on linux. Can you provide any information to this. Al, let me know if I am correct on the IP. Thanks.

    Ubuntu 18.04.3, FOG version 1.5.7

  • I already tried changing it. I just left it like this in nano since when I changed it through the FOG console I was not able to connect to the storage node disk. Am I supposed to add the images and the users or is it supposed to automatically find the computers on the network? 7c24a24f-282f-4094-8ce7-62bfec060dc0-image.png

  • @Sebastian-Roth yes, you are right. I apologize for the confusion. Thanks.

    I just need to connect to the computers on my network.

    Computers on your network need to be registered to be seen in the FOG management web UI. Either you add the hosts through the web UI using the MAC address. Or you can PXE boot the hosts one after the other and do the registration this way.

    I did not use the default as I mistakenly forgot to add it during installation, So now I guess I need to back track.

    Do you mean IP address? The sentence doesn’t make sense to me but when I connect it to the information in your initial post I can imagine that you ask about changing a FOG servers IP, right?



  • @Sebastian-Roth I have installed everything already and I logged into the FOG management system I just need to connect to the computers on my network. Which I do not see on the dashboard, I did not use the default as I mistakenly forgot to add it during installation, So now I guess I need to back track.
