FOG 1.5.7 - Join W10 Clients to Domain?



  • Hi all - trying to get this working referencing the guide, but what I’m reading there doesn’t seem to correspond to what I’m seeing on the screen in the FOG Web UI.

    Is there a definitive walkthrough for the process? With, like, crayons?

    Thanks everyone.



  • @Sebastian-Roth Thank you for all that.

    I’m playing with it and got it nearly there by unt-ticking/re-ticking the AD join options in the individual host’s entry, then all my defaults populated nicely. Now have enough to go about tweaking with fog.log as you mention.

    Thanks again!

    I don’t know of a full walk through on this. We keep asking people to help improve the FOG documentation but there seems to be very little enthusiasm from experienced users to work on this.

    The AD stuff in the FOG settings page is just the global defaults. What you want to look at is the host’s settings directly. Use one of those as an example to try out and get to understand how it works. Install the fog-client software on this host and make sure communication to the FOG server works correctly (log file on the client host in C:\fog.log or C:\Program Files (x86)\FOG\fog.log). Then add AD settings to this host and check the “Service Settings” tab on this host as well. The “Hostname Changer” needs to be enabled.

    Keep an eye on the log file on the client to see what’s going on.

    Hi - thanks and sorry meant to paste a link there and didn’t. Guide was: https://wiki.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php/Active_Directory_-_FOG_Setting#Join_Domain_after_image_task

    Coming unstuck pretty early on tbh, and not just on the initial point either. Instructions say for example to start with “Web UI: Other Information -> FOG Settings” where the actual UI options are “Fog Configuration > FOG Settings > FOG Client - Hostname Changer” - I think! I can’t be sure.

    Is there any other guide or walkthrough for the process?

    Thanks all.

    Which guide? What do you see on the screen? You need to share more information for us to be able to help.
