  • [quote=“Wayne Workman, post: 45718, member: 28155”]If you’re running FOG on a Linux server build, it’s likely that the external drive is not automatically mounted.

    Is the Ubuntu 14 a workstation/client install or the server install?

    Can you access the external drive at all? If not, you’ll have to mount it…[/quote]

    It is a workstation/client install and yes i can access the external drive.


  • Senior Developer

    You have to mount your external drive first. You mount to a specified directory. Something like /mybackupdrive

    [code]sudo mkdir /mybackupdrive
    mount [device/path/to/externaldrive] /mybackupdrive
    ./FOGBackup.sh /mybackupdrive[/code]

    I"m trying to run this command "./FOGBackup.sh [directory]
    Where it says directory how do I get that to go to my external drive for doing backups?



  • I see that there is a backup util for the fog server, is there a way to run that and have it point to a external hd that I have?

    [B][FONT=Tahoma]INSTALLING FOG SOFTWARE:[/FONT][/B][FONT=Tahoma]

    The installation of FOG is fairly straightforward, once installed the bulk of configuration is handled from the Web GUI through your browser. There are a couple of further tweaks that can be done from the system side but they are optional depending on your environment.

    1. Enter the following at your Ubuntu command line.
      • cd /opt
      • sudo wget [/FONT][URL=‘https://sourceforge.net/projects/freeghost/files/latest/download?source=’][FONT=Tahoma]https://sourceforge.net/projects/freeghost/files/latest/download?source=[/FONT][/URL][FONT=Tahoma]
      • sudo tar –xvzf fog_1.20.tar.gz
      • cd fog_1.2.0/
      • cd bin
      • sudo ./installfog.sh
    2. Follow the steps in the FOG installer wizard
      • Choose Option 2 (Ubuntu)
      • Choose N (normal)
      • Press enter to leave IP address default
      • Press enter to leave gateway default
      • Press enter to leave DNS default
      • Choose NO when asked to change default NIC
      • If you already have DHCP configured, press NO to disable FOG DHCP
      • Press Enter to acknowledge MySQL warning
      • Set a password for MySQL when requested if you want (I left mine blank)
      • Be awesome and send a notification to the FOG community!
    3. FOG is now installed, we just want to check some of the MySQL settings real quick. wizard (skip this step if you left the password blank)
      • sudo vi /var/www/fog/lib/fog/Config.class.php
      • Set MYSQL_PASSWORD to the password you configured in the FOG
      • Confirm MYSQL_USERNAME is set to root account
      • sudo vi /var/www/fog/lib/fog/Config.class.php
      • Set MYSQL_PASSWORD to the password configured in the FOG wizard
    4. Congrats! FOG is fully installed!! [/FONT]

    The wiki shows one example here [url]http://www.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php/FOG_on_an_Isolated_Network[/url] .
    Here is how I setup a standalone fog test server I can’t find the original link I got this from if anyone knows post the link so I can credit them. The key is a second NIC so it has internet access but all the fog traffic stays off the main network then just hook a switch up to the other NIC for your hosts. This also includes webmin for headless admin and SVN instructions also culled from the wiki.

  • ok, I’m using Ubuntu 14.04.



  • [quote=“fredlwal, post: 45573, member: 26766”]So start with that walk through ?[/quote]

    Well, there are several, for whatever version of Linux you choose.

    The most common installation is on Ubuntu, but the choice is up to you.

    Yes, start with a walk through.



  • So start with that walk through ?



  • Ok. That will be fine.

    You will need to connect the FOG machine to the internet temporarily, still.

    And I would recommend a fresh install of revision 3255 on either Ubuntu server or Fedora server. You may, instead of using a revision, choose to install 1.2.0. Many people use it, but it is becoming quite outdated as our Senior Developer, Tom, keeps pushing forward at the pace he’s holding… (for more info on revisions, see: [url]http://fogproject.org/wiki/index.php/SVN[/url] )

    Additionally, I can’t help most people with 1.2.0 because I have never even used 1.2.0 in production.

    You’ll need to keep the FOG machine on the internet until at least you’ve downloaded every utility / tool / updates that you need.

    If you hit any snags, just ask. We’re here to help.

    Thank You[/quote]

    Are you concerned about DHCP being on your production network?
    You are not required to run DHCP on FOG. You may use your existing DHCP server.

    Have you taken a look at our numerous walk-throughs for installing? [url]http://fogproject.org/wiki/index.php/FOGUserGuide#Installing_FOG[/url]
