Problem related to multiple MACs

  • Hi,
    we are having problems in joining a host to a domain and it seems related to multiple MACs. (build 2412)
    Fog agent log gets this:

    [FONT=Calibri]20/10/2014 11:36 FOG::MODDebug MAC ID 0 0018F309697F
    20/10/2014 11:36 FOG::MODDebug MAC ID 1
    20/10/2014 11:36 FOG::MODDebug MAC ID 2 00000000000000E0
    20/10/2014 11:36 FOG::MODDebug MAC ID 3 00000000000000E0
    20/10/2014 11:36 FOG::MODDebug MAC POST String: 0018F309697F||00000000000000E0|00000000000000E0[/FONT]

    There’s a spanish message saying system can not find message text for message number 0x%1 in messages file for %2
    Is Perhaps something related to a mess of MACs?

    Thanks and regards.


  • Thanks Jbob, here we go.

    Sure, the easiest way would be to just download the file from here:

    (Either Right Click -> Save As, or use wget/curl)

    Just replace that downloaded file with your local copy and recompile just the HostnameChanger module

  • Hi Jbon,
    I’m not used to using svn. Can you show me the right command to get the patched file please?


  • Thanks Jbob, I am going to try it.

    This problem has come up multiple times on the forums. The issue isn’t the multiple macs but rather a compatibility issue with the client/server.

    See the following thread for the explanation as to what is happening (the answer is my last post on the thread):

    The URL linked in that thread is no longer active. You can get the patched HostnameChanger from the svn repository. Please note that you will need to compile the patched source code. If you need me to compile it please let me know.

    it looks to me like it might be because the client is reporting a blank MAC field
