    @Tom-Elliott This could be needed for security purposes. A wipe will make sure the entire disk is over written before putting down an image. With just re-writing the image you can’t ensure that forensic tools won’t be able to recover old files. I can see what he is asking for, maybe if there was a way to modify the download task to do a normal or full wipe then download to give assurance that all data has been over written at least once. This should be able to be accomplished a couple of ways, either one have the fog inits run a normal wipe then run the download, or possibly with the a hooks you could have it auto create a deploy after the wipe finishes so when the client reboots it will pull the image automatically.

    @Nika If you want to do that for each download you can modify the inits to add another wipe tool (dban binary for example) and modify the fog.download in the init/bin/ to execute dban before download the image. :D

    @Nika I don’t have predownload/preupload scripts built in, but I believe why @ch3i is confused is because you’re going to be overwriting the data after wiping the disk, which will do the same thing. Wiping the disk just adds extra time in the end that is more or less unneeded.



  • @ch3i
    So i want to wipe hard drive before fog deploys the image. but i want to do it with some bash or Python script.

    @ch3i I think he wants to wipe the disk directly before fog deploys the image, but within the deploy task itself.

    @Nika I don’t understand, what do you want to do ?

    If it’s to use the task included in FOG like Capture, Deploye, Wipe, … you don’t need extra scripts.



  • @ch3i
    Yes i need :D

    @Nika Hi, you don’t need no more scripts to do these tasks.
