Email notification



  • Hi All,

    Many years ago I wrote an email notification system for Fog 0.28. When I posted about it, I got some responses from people saying they would be interested in having that integrated into Fog.

    However, I failed to make contact with any of the developers, and so my feature has remained in my own copy of 0.28.

    I am currently evaluating FOG 1.2, and would like to know how I could get my email notification system integrated into the mainline code, once I’ve ported it.

    The primary use I made of it is to have the FOG server to send email notifications of Viruses detected by Clamav, but any part FOG could use the system to send notifications (if configured to do so).

    Cheers!
    Nik



  • Deep Freeze is insanely expensive, when Fog can easily perform this same task. Albeit the local network bandwidth.

    Which isn’t a concern during non-working hours.

    Please note that Deep Freeze relies very heavily on WOL, you need to configure your settings properly, you can even set a schedule to have your labs shut off at a certain time, accept windows updates, even run batch files.

    Something I’ve been toying with (idea anyways) is to image a set of machines on a nightly basis, so that any casual employee changes become undone during the nightly restart.

    And having my machines grouped, with an email notification of Success / Fail and percentages would be an extremely useful tool.[/quote]
