FOG Client Laptops



  • Are their any known issues with the FOG client on laptops? I have imaged several laptops using the ethernet card but the majority of our users use them on our wireless network. Both the wired and wireless networks in the school are both on the same domain. So I’m assuming that the FOG client should react in the same manor. I would like to utilize the printer manager on these devices and I’m hoping I can do so still.

    Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks!

    Cheers!,

    Joe



  • @Wayne-Workman Thanks! That worked!

    @Joe-Gill It’s encryption is broke. Reset it in the web gui.



  • @Wayne-Workman Hmmmm. I don’t see pending MAC addresses anyplace on this host.

    I see this in the FOG log file on the host.

    There’s no need to make any modification. The fog client works fine on laptops.

    If a host has a MAC address that the server doesn’t know about - the client will report in on this. It’ll show up in the pending MACs list on the dashboard, and you just approve the MACs. That’s it.



  • I’m assuming you just set host to ignore mac address for the fog client.

    Cheers!
