Install the FOG service, KB838079, and Additional Software



  • Hi,

    This is first time I’m installing FOG and it seems I’m getting stuck on every step(Not being Linux person doesn’t help either)

    The question is that I’m following [url]http://community.spiceworks.com/how_to/show/975-creating-images-for-multiple-hardware-fog-server[/url] to create an base image and not sure what step 4 does. Do I need to install FOG service and KB838079 or I can skip that part? I might be missing things but nothing in there seems something that I need. Maybe hostname changer if it automatically puts laptops to domain. Or is this something I can skip if I don’t need? Is there something there that I might be missing that would make life easier?

    Thank you



  • Great group of people here :)

    [quote=“Junkhacker, post: 27153, member: 21583”][b]t[/b]hat is an old guide. KB838079 is [B]NOT[/B] required anymore. The Fog service is required for some features of fog such as automatic [B]hostname changes[/B], automatic adding to the domain, and deploying snapins (which, for example, [B]I[/B] use to deploy antivirus after the computer is on the domain, and run scheduled software updates)

    [B]I[/B] highly recommending using the fog wiki and forum instead of external guides[B].[/B]

    [quote=“HaxEJxuK, post: 27177, member: 24173”]Great! Thank you. Also, did you mean to say KB839079 isn’t required anymore? or KB839079 is required? Sounds like it isn’t required anymore but “is” and “anymore” together is confusing me a little.

    Also, deploy snap in sounds good but I’m using FOG in isolated network(off of domain and just using a switch to hook up laptops) I would think this isn’t going to work if that’s the case? So unless I plan to use hostname changer, automatic adding to domain(again isolated network wouldn’t apply here?) I wouldn’t need FOG service?

    Thank you again[/quote]

    KB839079 - No longer required

    better ? :)

    There is a tool included with fog, the Fog Client, it is recommended to join your machines to your domain!

    that is an old guide. KB838079 is required anymore.
