    [SIZE=6][B]Install FOG 1.0.1 on Ubuntu 14.04[/B][/SIZE]

    This tutorial is not a one size fits all. It may need to be adjusted to fit your environment. Please see the wiki, forum, and manual at fogproject.org if you need to modify it.

    Install Ubuntu 14.04 with OpenSSH and LAMP packages
    Set root password and switch to root
    [CODE]sudo passwd root
    su root[/CODE]

    Setup your NIC
    [CODE]nano /etc/network/interfaces[/CODE]
    [CODE]auto eth0
    iface eth0 inet static
    address x.x.x.x
    netmask x.x.x.x
    gateway x.x.x.x
    dns-search example.com
    dns-nameservers x.x.x.x [/CODE]
    Either reboot or restart your network service to enable changes.

    Update your system
    [CODE]apt-get update && apt-get upgrade -y && reboot[/CODE]
    I like to reboot after updates.

    Install FOG
    [CODE]apt-get install -y subversion
    svn co https://svn.code.sf.net/p/freeghost/code/trunk /opt/fog_1.0.1
    cd /opt/fog_1.0.1/bin/
    ./installfog.sh[/CODE]
    For my installation I chose the following options.
    [CODE]2, N, <IP address of fog server>, Y, <IP address of DHCP server>, Y, <IP address of DNS server>, N, N, N, Y or N – your choice, Y, Y, N - Enter you MYSQL root password[/CODE]
    Setup Database via web browser
    [LIST]
    [][url]http://x.x.x.x/fog/management[/url]
    [
    ]Click “Install/Upgrade Now”
    []Default User:
    [LIST]
    [
    ]Username: fog
    []Password: password
    [/LIST]
    [/LIST]
    Back on your server, continue the installation by pressing enter.
    Choose whether or not to notify fog of the installation. It helps them and won’t hurt you.
    If you use a windows server like me for DHCP you must set server options 066 & 067
    [LIST]
    [
    ]Option 066 is the IP or hostname of the FOG Server
    [*]Option 067 is the undionly.kpxe
    [/LIST]

    If you’re using the RT-N66U Router, I’d highly recommend using dd-wrt firmware on it.

    I can ensure that it works.

    [quote=“UtOpiK, post: 29992, member: 24596”]nice guide.
    Just a little question.
    [SIZE=3]It’s possible to use a hardware DHCP (like my [/SIZE][SIZE=3][FONT=Arial][COLOR=#000000]Asus RT-N66U Router)[/COLOR][/FONT][/SIZE] ? Or we need Linux or Windows dhcp inevitably ?[/quote]

    You can use hardware DHCP, you may need to use dnsmasq in hand to help to resolve the boot file but that depends on the capabilities of your dhpc server, if you can manage it, aka log in to an interface, and find the option 66 and option 67 to supply you should be fine with only using the Asus for DHCP.



  • nice guide.
