Fog rejoining computer to AD that is already in AD



  • I have a minor problem. I can get fog to join computers to AD in an OU if they do not exist in that OU; however, if they exist in that OU, it gives me this error ( Error 2224 )

    Once, I delete the computer from the OU in AD, and restart the fog service, it joins AD again and the OU just fine. I also noticed, that if I don’t assign an OU, I do not have this problem, it will join the domain again after a reimage…even if it is already in AD.

    Has anyone else ran into this.

    i went through that when i first started using fog to join my computers…but i learned to delete or un-join my computers before re-fogging them

    I use Fog to automate the entire process of joining AD after imaging. If the computer account already exists in AD, as long as you don’t specify a container, it will simply rejoin that computer to the AD it was previously located. If you however have a computer that was never in AD, you may specify a container to do so but just for ease of use and to avoid problems, I have them join the default “Computers” OU and just move them afterwards.



  • thats what i do anyway, make sure that the machine is in AD and i never specify a container just leave the field blank and you wont have a issues… If im not mistaken its in the documentation that you should leave this field blank
