HOSTNAME CHANGER WITH FOG SERVER
Does anyone know how to ONLY CHANGE THE COMPUTER CLIENT HOSTNAME ? Or the value to change in the fog settings
- fog service downloaded and installed to the client computer
- fog service activated in Windows services
- netdom installed
But I don’t want to join the computers to the domain , will do it later manually
[B] A few things:[/B]
Why can’t you just leave domain info blank in fog settings?
Another option, don’t use the fog service, just use hostname change early setting and computer name will get renamed while still in linux before it ever boots into Windows. Since fog service isn’t installed you won’t join domain.
netdom is not required
Finally if your set on doing the way you are now, then download the Fog service source, download a C# compiler and remove the code that joins to the domain. It is pretty straitforward. The joys of open source.
