FOG registration on active PC

  • We would like to start utilizing the snap-ins to push out software to one of our school labs.

    Is there a script that can be ran on the local machine that will change the fog reg. name to match the windows name?

    Most of our clients are windows 7.

    There is not a script that does this. The FOG client does this in reverse, querying FOG for a host with matching MAC, getting the name according to FOG, and renaming the client. If I understand you correctly, you want to do this in reverse. FOG Client getting the local host name and MACs, searching the FOG database for a matching host record, and updating the FOG database with the current computer name.

    If you have a C# developer handy, you can add a module to the FOG client that does this, using the existing hostnamechanger module as a reference.
