Fog Server on Hyper V can not found from other Maschines


  • hi,

    i am newbie and can not good Englisch but try to explain my situation.

    I installed a fog Server on Centos on HyperV, it was successful.
    After this i try with a Test Client also on Hyper V the PXE Boot and can install Windows on it over Fog Server.

    But my Problem is, how can i connect my other machine (not Virtual) to this VM Fog Server?

    Can someone give me tips?

    Thanks

    VM Fog Server hast 2 Nics, one default and the other one is private.
    Fog Server is also DHCP Server, I hope Fog can handle DHCP and give IPs to Clients.

    Cause my VM Test Client could take IP and Windows could be installed over PXE on it.

    Thanks for your time and help

    @lerne-nie-aus I think I understand the problem (your english is good by the way no problem to understand).
    yes it is it, you got my Problem. And i try to learn more English:)
    Let me see if I understand your problem by me saying the problem using my words.

    " I installed FOG on a centos server running as a hyper-v virtual machine. The centos server has 2 network interfaces. One network interface is connected to my business LAN and the other interface is connected to a dedicated imaging LAN (vlan inside hyper-v). When I installed FOG I tell it to use the dedicated imaging network adapter for FOG. I also tell FOG installer to create a DHCP server on the imaging network. FOG is installed OK and I can take image of a second VM connected to the imaging VLAN.
    yes with VMs i have no problem to connect fog server, all are OK
    So my problem is how to I image a physical computer using this configuration? "
    Yeah that it the Point:)
    If I understand this problem, you need to extend the imaging LAN outside of your Hyper-V server. Right now your imaging network is only inside hyper-v. You need to connect this internal vlan to a physical network interface on the hyper-v server then plug an external network switch into this interface. From there you can plug physical computers into this imaging network switch.

    Could you pls explain litte bit more, how i do step by step?

    Cause i tried all virtuel Switches and had no Success:(
    I had already troubles while installing the Fog on VM, cause Fog need internet connections and i want a static ip and i had 2 Nics, i know it sound for an expert so easy but it is for me so difficult and i try to learn by doing:)

    So wait for you Reply, ho i can solve this problem with my Hyper V VM and Pyhsical Computer.

    Bye the way, i have no vlan on hyperv, just 2 nics, one private and one default(extern)

    Thanks:)
