Couple of minor changes to Management Console that would speed things



  • When one clicks the following at the top:

    User, Host, Group, Image, Storage, SnapIn, Printer, Task Management

    Could you immediately, by default, display the “List All” option.

    I think most people will want to see this “List All” first.

    xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    The 2nd issue relates to a few of these pages where there are descriptions saying “Download” or “Upload”.
    I have always and still do find these terms very confusing in connection with imaging. I don’t think I’m the only person on the planet who is not sure about these terms in an imaging context. But it really bugs me.

    Could you change all references like download and upload to “Capture image” and “Deploy image”.
    These terms are crystal clear, and would make a big difference to me.

  • [quote=“Wolfbane8653, post: 27733, member: 3362”]you did do a…

    [CODE]
    cd /var/www/fog/lib/hooks/
    sudo nano AddHostSerial.hook.php
    sudo nano AddHostModel.hook.php[/CODE]
    Thats what i needed to execute to save the files.[/quote]

    You mean did I use sudo? Yes, of course but it wasn’t necessary for the installation directory because I’m logged in with the “fog” user. I had to for the /var/www directory because the owner/group is www-data.

    Just to be sure, what permissions are set in /var/www/fog/lib/hooks for you?

  • That didn’t seem to work for me. Is there a service I should restart to take affect?

    I made the changes from the installation directory as well as the web directory. Permissions in /var/www/fog/lib/hooks for .php files are 644, owner and group are both www-data. Install folder in documents is 664. Owner and group are fog. Permissions?

    [quote=“Junkhacker, post: 27705, member: 21583”]inside /fog/lib/hooks there is a file named AddHostSerial.hook.php
    if you edit it to say var $active = true; it will list the serial numbers of the computers in the host view[/quote]

    :eek: that’s awesome!!!

    You can see the Models too if you do the same to fog/lib/hooks/AddHostModel.hook.php

  • Another suggestion that is sort of related to this is adding another value in the Host Management column, such as chassis Asset or system serial number. With most retail PCs they have these values listed on the chassis itself, while the MAC address is not. Having the serial right in your face makes it much easier to physically track down a PC.

    If anyone has done this before, I’d like to know :)

    The list all option is already available through the FOG GUI. Go to FOG Information->FOG Settings->FOG Default View, and choose list.
