Sorry for this elementary question. I’ve “inherited” the FOG responsibilities. We just received a new “batch” of dell 3080s and of course somehow they are different from our previous batch. There’s enough difference that FOG bombs now. Did some forums searching and determined I’d need to update the kernel. I think I did that, however FOG still bombs, and on the dashboard it looks like it’s still showing the previous kernel version. So how do I reboot the entire server? Tried searching forums, and of course you folks are way advanced than i, didn’t find anything this basic.
Any advice you can give this newbie, will be greatly appreciated.
@stu If you have terminal access, log in, and just type
@wayne-workman thank you! I was wondering if there was a way to reboot from the web interface. My other problem is that it was previously setup by someone else and they did not share the password. So I’m still trying to chase that down, so far that’s been a no go.
@stu If you have access to a keyboard directly connected to the FOG server you can tell it to reboot by using Ctrl+Alt+Del. Though Linux only does a reboot with this key control if one of the virtual terminals is active. So go to the server and see what you have on screen. It you see a black screen with a login prompt, that’s most probably a virtual terminal, try Ctrl+Alt+Del. But if you see a graphical login screen you need to switch to the virtual terminal first using Ctrl+Alt+F1.
@stu There’s a wiki article all about passwords: https://wiki.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php?title=Password_Central
Though, if you cannot log in via terminal or SSH, you might could try a Linux password reset boot utility. Use your favorite search engine to search for
reset Linux password. Highly advise to backup / create snapshot before trying anything you find.
