Solved Fog Legacy Client hostname changer not working 1.3.5 RC2
- FOG Version: 1.3.5 RC2
- OS: Centos 7
- Service Version: Legacy Client
- OS: Windows 7
Noticed that when pushing image the computer does not auto rename or join computer to domain. I notice that log file indicated that the hostnamechanger service has been disabled globally on the fog server. I checked and it is enabled.
according to the client log file it says " snapinclient module is disabled globally on the FOG Server, exiting."
I will create a new issue, and post the log file from one of the clients.
Also, please post this new issue on a new thread. As the contents of this thread were pretty specific.
I will try to replicate the problem myself, but it’s much easier if you can provide as much detail as possible.
What does it show for the snapins? When dealing with the client, the logs always go a lot longer way than just telling us a particular point doesn’t work.
Just installed Fog version 1.3.5 RC4 and it corrected the hostname changer problem under the legacy client. Unfortunately snapin deployment do not work.
So I found the issue and I’m sorry, I was wrong. While I did make improvements to ensure the legacy client worked I am just more coding for the “new client”. I forgot that the legacy client uses 2 checks to get their information. First check is a call to servicemodule-active and the second is to the enabled items. The problem was from the servicemodule-active check. For the new client we collect all the data at once and send it in a single request. To do this relatively easily there’s a variable that get’s set and is tested against. This variable was not getting set for the servicemodule-active checks.
My client tests were working properly only because I forgot to update the server they communicate with. (Yes I have multiple servers and it’s easy for me to mistake sometimes with this.)
For this reason, I’ve pushed up RC-4.
Please update and keep us informed?
@Kleber I need you to please re-pull and install. I assure you this is fixed in the latest.
You can validate this by going to a browser and going to the url:
You should see something similar to:
