HOW TO ONLY CHANGE THE HOSTNAME ON THE CLIENT COMPUTERS ?



  • Hi everyone,

    I would like to change only the hostname on the client computers on FOG Server once the imaging process finished without touching the AD parameters on FOG and manually add them later to the AD.

    Does anyone know how to do it ?

    ONLY CHANGING THE HOSTNAME ON THE CLIENT SIDE

    Thank you very much

    Regards



  • once your hosts are in your Fog inventory, you can simply click edit for the host you want to change, then change the hostname right there in your FOG web-admin page.

    Simplified:
    Log in to Fog -server with your web browser…
    Click on Host Management
    Click Edit for the host you wish to change
    Change Hostname.

    Now, this will automatically rename and reboot the system (if the fog client has hostname changer enabled.-- see screenshot)

  • Hi jdd49,
    Thank you for replying

    I haven’t used sysprep yet, computers are majority XP and some of them are Windows 7 Pro 32 bits

    It’s for all computers, what I’d like to do is to clone the image to all computers and setup the FOG server to change only the computer hostname and I will later add them manually to our domain

    Thank you very much

    Regards



  • Is this for all computers or just some. If it’s all just remove the [FONT=Ubuntu][COLOR=#333333]FOG_AD_DEFAULT_DOMAINNAME value. Are you using sysprep?[/COLOR][/FONT]
