Registration & Web Interface Ideas



  • I had a few ideas for additions/modifications to FOG. I suggested a few in another thread, but their correct place is here, plus I have an additional few.

    With regards to the Full Registration option, if possible:

    • Where it asks the yes/no questions, like joining the domain, it accepts input of other characters other than y/n. Is there any way to have FOG only accept y/n and if anything else is entered, prompt again, this time entering y/n? It would avoid having to shut down and restart the registration if you accidentally enter the wrong key
    • By default, the answer to the full registration questions is ‘no’ - is there any way to add an option in the web interface to change the defaults? For example, every machine we image gets joined to the domain - I know that can be done with groups, but it would be nice to be able to just hit enter when doing the registration
    • Provide an option in the web interface to disable the host pinging that happens by default when using the ‘host management’ menu. Just in an attempt to speed up loading of the host listing
    • Add a dedicated host hardware inventory tab. From what I’ve seen, the only way to view the hardware configuration is on a per-host basis from the ‘host management’ menu. It would be nice to be able to sort and filter all hosts based on hardware configuration.

    I have German Keyboards where Z and Y are swapped…
    i have sysprepped windows.
    if i only once misstyped in fog dialog
    fog will boot off disk, making the sysprepped windows useless so i have to restart the entire process.

    so i second:

    You can specify the keyboard mapping in the FOG GUI so your y/z keys are actually usable. If there is no keymap specified, it automatically uses the en_US keyboard, however you can have it use your own keyboard layout.

  • I’m using 0.32 but under:
    Other Information - Fog Settings - General Settings
    There’s an option called: FOG_HOST_LOOKUP
    Setting that to 0 will disable host pinging
