Adding hosts to a group



  • Running rev 3377 on CentOs I cannot find where to add hosts to a group. Have I forgotten something? I thought it should be possible to put selected hosts into existing or new group from Host Management. There is no option to do this below the list of hosts.

    Then I tried to do this from membership under Groups. All hosts are shown and I can choose which ones to include into the group. This is not a good solution if there are hundreds of hosts. A search/filter function would be nice.

    Have a overlooked something?

    @pmonstad,

    Can you please try upgrading your svn and try again? This was/is known about and has been fixed. So to keep saying this or that about it on a revision that was known to have this issue, seems rather pointless to me.

    I just confirmed the bug was still present on the LIST view. I have now corrected it.

    SVN 3428 should fix this issue for you.

    Word of caution if you do update to this and you’re using the New Client, it may break hostname.php if you don’t have FOG_AES_ENCRYPT enabled. If you do have new client AND FOG_AES_ENCRYPT enabled, it may basically break everything. Legacy clients should work without issue.

    @ch3i I think I have discovered the issue. The add to group is missing from Host Management when FOG settings are set to LIST as default. My not-working setting is LIST 12 and then the group options are missing. When I changed setting to SEARCH the options appeared.

    Hi,

    I never used the list because the amount of computer :p

    Hi,

    My FOG is in 3412 and I have the option when I use “Search”.

  • @Wayne-Workman The problem is there is no such option when searching for hosts, only when listing all hosts.

    use the search in “Hosts”. Then at the very bottom, add to a group, or add to new group.

  • Tom: Yes, but where? There is no such options in bottom of the search list in Host management. If my memory is correct this function used to be there? In rev 3377 it has disappeared, even after an empty cache in browser.

    Or you can add hosts in the meantime from the search or list page of host management.



  • [quote=“Tom Elliott, post: 47256, member: 7271”]It should be there. I had a power outage last night so I can’t confirm. Basically the selection isn’t done from a aelect tag any more but the basic idea should work similarly. Host management -> group membership -> checkbox for hosts not in this group -> check the boxes for that area of which hosts you want to be in that group and click add hosts.[/quote]

    Hm, it is not found in Host Management. No such options as I think was there in earlier versions. You mean the only option is to put hosts into groups from Membership menu in Groups? This is very little user friendly as I have to find each single host in the list in stead of having the possibility to search for patterns as possible in Host Management. Very time consuming when searhing for a couple of hosts among several hundreds.
