UNSOLVED New Server IP, Fog Client Question...

  • FOG 1.2.0 on Ubuntu 14.04

    Hello! We are doing some network changes in the coming weeks and are changing our IP scheme, which means that our FOG server will need to change as well. We are wondering if there is a way to change what IP our computers with the FogClient are pointing to, without having to re-image all of them.


  • I will do my best to figure this out! Thanks for the start.


  • @MalcolmHimself There is an MSI for installing the legacy client.

    You can use msiexec to uninstall software with a specific signature (and all legacy clients will have the same signature).

    Then, you could reinstall it using msiexec and you’d just need to figure out how to specify the IP and options.

    Do some testing, if you figure it out, share what you learned and how you did it. 🙂

    Here’s how you get a list of software signatures:

    wmic product get > c:\InstalledPrograms.txt

    Here’s an example of uninstalling using the signature (change the signature):

    start /w msiexec.exe /qn /x {C8656BFF-CF63-4191-A9CD-C2316B9DA646} /norestart

  • Lame bananas! But thanks for the quick reply!

  • Without imaging them? Uninstall the client and reinstall it, and entering the correct IP… 😕
