Host registration failure with HP EliteDesk 800 G2 Desktop Mini



  • Hi
    Whenever I try a quick or full host registration with a HP EliteDesk 800 G2 Desktop Mini, it fails with the following error:

    Attempting to register host…Failed
    An error has been detected!
    Cannot register host. (/bin/fog.auto.reg)
    Args Passed:
    Computer will reboot in 1 minute.

    I’m getting this on both Fog 1.2 and Trunk 6365.
    Other computers are working fine, it seems to be a problem specific to this model (product number: P1G15ET#ABU). Has anyone encountered the same issue or managed to get this model to work with Fog?
    I did try and change various BIOS settings to see if that makes a difference but nothing seems to work.

    Thanks!

    Thank you both for your answers, appreciate it. I started with the easy solution suggested by Quazz, and it fixed it!
    Now running trunk 6677 and the registration just works fine!
    Thanks a lot.
    Next time I have a problem, I’ll update first, then post on the forum :)

    I believe they fixed certain registration issues on trunk 6555+ or so, so it might be worth updating.

    Very true!! I only looked at the last group of numbers and assumed 65 was greater than 55, no problem here… :disappointed:

    ISO… 2nd cup of coffee now

    I was about to give out a collective groan :scream: because I thought this was another realtek issue. But in this case this workstation has an Intel I219-LM network adapter installed.

    If you select the compatibility test from the ipxe menu what does that produce?

    next step
    If you manually register this computer and then setup a debug deploy to this computer. Boot the computer into the ipxe menu the end results will be a command prompt on the target computer.

    Then issue the command ip addr show and post the results here.
