Is it possible to re-enable auto-registration in FOG 1.2?



  • I believe that once upon a time, back in the mid FOG .2x series, if you had the FOG client installed, it would auto register with the FOG server with MAC, current hostname.

    I just had a production server tank on me as I was trying to prepare for repairs and upgrades. Now I’ve got an entire building with a fresh install of FOG 1.2 but no registered hosts.

    It would be a blessing if there would be a way to have all the systems simply register themselves like they used to be able to. All our systems are set to boot to HD first, so I would have to physically touch every system to get them re-registered in FOG.

    Hope I’m using the correct terminology. Thanks for any suggestions.



  • I’m game to hear what you’ve implemented. Message sent…

    Not good news in our current situation, but at least in a future stable release, it has potential! We’ll hand touch all the student systems and manually inventory those so we can at the very least, do user login tracking. We’ll make it work one way or another.

    User login tracking super super simple to track if they are domain connected. It’s a matter of a shared folder and a login script. I created this solution on my own, you won’t find it on the net. Since it’s not FOG related, you can message me if you’re interested.

    This isn’t possible in 1.2. Simply put, the client that you install needs to be recoded to allow that as well as the service needing to see it.

    That said, this was readded to the new client and dev versions of fog.

Looks like your connection to FOG Project was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
