Snapin downloads



  • made a simple cmd file that just does an ifconfig and pipes it to a text file
    ipconfig >c:\ip.txt

    file runs fine manually. I am trying to push it out via a snapin. The fog.log show it as downloaded. Then it shows it as starting install, but never does anything after that. I dont think it actually installs. Any ideas?



  • Tom,
    If I left those two fields blank, the snapin seems to run just fine.



  • I think it fails with the same above error. I will verify tonite. Thanks again for your time and effort.

    What if you remove the /c argument AND the run with cmd.exe argument?



  • yep have to add the /c in the “snapin run with arguments” box . It is not optional.



  • HOLY @#$%@$# I got it to work. i added the /c in the argument parameters. I will try to duplicate tomorrow and report back.



  • I tried it on my home fog server. Got the same issue. Least I consistently fail. Here is the fog.log

  • Me either. Does this look right (see attached img) ?

    also my scrip is simply

    cd
    ipconfig /all >c:\ip.txt

    i’m not sure why it’s not working then
    the following is what i use as a test snapin

    @echo off
    echo "HELLO I INSTALLED SNAPIN1 ON MY SYSTEM" > C:\installedSnapin1.txt
    
    


  • No, I gave it a new name.


  • Developer

    after you edited the file, did you try uploading it with the same name as before? if so, it’s likely that it didn’t upload at all as the the web server doesn’t have rights to overwrite files in that directory.



  • I believe we did both. The client does work to rename the PC and to deploy printers.


  • Developer

    when you installed the client service, did you “run as administrator” to install it? did you install for all users?



  • I put a carriage return at the end of the file. Same results. Last line says
    Starting Fog Snapin Installation
    and nothing after that.



  • yes it is a bat file. It did not have a carriage return. Trying again now.


  • Developer

    i assume that this is a .bat file
    make sure that a space or carriage return follows the last command in the file.
