ClientUpdater



  • Hello All,

    has anyone managed to get the clientupdater working in 1.1.1?
    the fog log shows the below however when the service / workstation is restarted it just states the below over and over again

    14/06/2014 10:54 FOG::ClientUpdater Checking Status : FOG Service Installer.msi
    14/06/2014 10:54 FOG::ClientUpdater File: FOG Service Installer.msi requires an update.
    14/06/2014 10:54 FOG::ClientUpdater File: C:\Program Files (x86)\FOG\tmp\FOG Service Installer.msi hash doesn’t match server hash!
    14/06/2014 10:54 FOG::ClientUpdater Client update will be applied during next service startup.
    14/06/2014 10:54 FOG::ClientUpdater Client update process complete, exiting…



  • Of course the way via snapin would be the alternative.

    I just wanted to try the clientupdater service for the first time and exactly the required file was forgotten in the sourcode ;(


  • Senior Developer

    Probably, yes.

    Though if you already recompiled the hostname changer file, you can just copy the file to the “C:\Program Files (x86)\FOG\HostnameChanger.dll”

    Just before you copy it over, run:
    [code]net stop “FOG Service”[/code]

    After it’s copied over, run:
    [code]net start “FOG Service”[/code]

    So ClientUpdater.dll need to be edited/fixed?


  • Senior Developer

    I believe it was a check missing in the code for the client.



  • I do not want to create a new thread so i add my similar issue on this.

    Related to this topic [url]http://fogproject.org/forum/threads/windows-7-activation-proposal.10745/#post-35495[/url]
    i want to exchange the “HostnameChange.dll” on all my clients.

    So i added the modified dll to the ClientUpdater Configuration:

    [IMG]http://abload.de/img/22-08-201411_31_21-foswqyw.png[/IMG]

    Activated Clientupdater globally and on the client configuration.
    Rebooted the client and checked the fog logfile:

    What i’m missing is the check for the “HostnameChange.dll” file.
    Is this a config issue or is the check missing in the code ?


  • Senior Developer

    There was a bug in fog and is, as such, still present in the “stable” versions. If you upgrade to svn, this has been fixed downstream.



  • Is it a bug of fog server or clientupdate? I ask because I am preparing a new image I want to deploy in some days and need to know if I can use current clientupdate.



  • Thanks Tom


  • Senior Developer

    This has been fixed in SVN trunk, thank you.

    I basically put all of the dll’s from the fog service into the DB, and none of them needed an update. Why you ask?

    While none of the files required an update, this shows you exactly which files are checked for and updated.

    Just for a simple test, I edited the config.ini file in the db and tested the client updater server to see if things were all well.

    The code returned:
    [code] 6/14/2014 9:49 AM FOG::ClientUpdater Checking Status : config.ini
    6/14/2014 9:49 AM FOG::ClientUpdater File: config.ini requires an update.
    6/14/2014 9:49 AM FOG::ClientUpdater File: C:\Program Files (x86)\FOG\tmp\config.ini hash doesn’t match server hash!
    6/14/2014 9:49 AM FOG::ClientUpdater 0 new modules found!

    6/14/2014 9:49 AM FOG::ClientUpdater Client update process complete, exiting…[/code]

    This is most probably a BUG at the moment.

    Where the bug is I don’t know. I’ll keep testing and see if I can come up with a fix for this.



  • [quote=“Tom Elliott, post: 30300, member: 7271”]I don’t know that this is how the file updates. I’ll take a look though, but I was under the impression that client updater updates the client files (HostnameChanger.dll, HostnameRegister.dll, etc…) not run the actual msi package, though I could be wrong.[/quote]

    Thanks let me know if that’s the case and i will just deploy it via a snap in
