UNSOLVED Host not registered. But it is in FOG??
- FOG Version: 1.3
- OS: Ubuntu 16.04
- Service Version:
I follow the instructions on how to kick off an upload of an image. This is how i understand it.
- In FOG, Create and image
2.Boot client machine onto the network and do a full inventory
Once the machine has registered you go to HOST Management and click capture. which then brings up an advanced settings box. click the button. If WOL is ticked the machine boots…
So my question is when the client machine boots is there any user intervention required. Because i still have to press F12 to tell the system that it needs to boot off the LAN. This sounds wrong to me.
If I press F12, the FOG menu states client not registed, but when i tell it to register (again) it comes back as the client is already registered. It seems like an inifinte loop. So im not sure what is going wrong.
There are two settings in the Host Management screen. Host Bios Exit Type and Host EFI Exit Type. Do I need to set something on these.
@pencils try stopping isc dhcp server then restarting dnsmasq
@ch3i Will i need to re-install dnsmasq again. the service isnt starting and im not sure why. I have updated to RC14.

You can of course use svn or git. https://wiki.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php?title=Upgrade_to_trunk
@pencils Hi, update to latest SVN version : https://wiki.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php?title=Installation#SVN
@Wayne-Workman any instructions on updating to RC14?

@pencils Please update to RC-14 and this issue will likely be resolved.
@adukes40 Ive done all of that…and then some! nothing seems to work? I tried it on a VM and that failed too. Not sure what im doing wrong.
Thats the versions
As there is no such thing, yet, as 1.3, what is the exact version you’ve installed?

@pencils As far as the exit types go, I don’t think you need to worry about those (I don’t)
As far as the capture goes. Basically, you find the host in fog gui, make sure the image is set (which it looks like you have), go to basic tasks, Capture, create task.
Next time that machine is PXE booted, it will see there is a task and execute. If you are having to hit F12 each time, change the boot order in the BIOS to network boot first.
Make sure your MAC address in the host info matches what your machine MAC is.
