I’ve been trying/researching several client/server imaging software including Fog and Norton Ghost.
It would appear that Fog is more successful than Ghost. I can actually pull an image via Fog. With that said, I cannot deploy the image without it freezing (or making no apparent progress, simply staying at 0% even after 10 minutes)
I am trying to pull an image from an Acer Veritron N282G and deploy that image to other Acer Veritron N282G. Any help would be great, as I’m trying to get these done, and it’s going on my second week of trial-and-error.
yes you can have multiple kernels, if that field is blank the host will default to the kernel you have set as bzImage
here is a quote from another thread [url]http://fogproject.org/forum/threads/fog_0-32-on-ubuntu-12-04.831/#post-3877[/url]
[quote=“falko, post: 3837, member: 48”]nope, you need to add it like this… Host Kernel: fog/kernel/<name_of_kernel>
all those with blank fields will default to the kernel you have set as bzImage
Note: In the screenshot below the kernel is called acer-aspire
Sorry to revive this thread. Is it possible to have multiple kernels? As I said, updating the kernel to 3.3.3 (appears) to have worked for the Acer computers I was working with, however. I just found a few HP DC5000 computers. I’ve tried to get a hardware inventory (not ready to image them yet) and yet the boot seems to stall right after the initial PXE screen.
One thing I’ve noticed in the “Host” screens is a spot for Kernel. Is this referring to a kernel on the client itself, or what kernel fog uses to interact with that particular client.
I think by updating the kernel, this solved the problem. Thanks!
have you updated to a different kernel and tried using that?
check the two posts below:
After installing FOG I Installed [URL=‘http://webmin.com/’]Webadmin[/URL], I logged into the mysql section created a new user (fogadmin) and password, giving this account full permission. I then edited the MYSQL info in /var/www/fog/commons/config.php + /opt/fog/service/etc/config.php. to match.
