Newbie: How to provision Centos& using FOG



  • Hi,

    I am new to FOG, my background is in AWS/VMware and some kickstart/pxe. I am used to provisioning servers and workstations via a VMware template or an AWS AMI.

    I’d like a pointer to a document which has a start to finish steps for provisioning CentOS systems via FOG.

    I did google around but could not come up with anything suitable.

    Please help. All patronage will be appreciated. Regards,

    Dariusz

    There are several documents that will get you started.
    https://wiki.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php?title=CentOS_7

    It is now recommended that you change selinux setting to permissive and not disabled as it appears in some documentation. Also if you need to leave the firewall enabled you can do that. The developers has provided some guidance on what firewalld rules need to be configured. Or you can just disable the firewalld service as outlined in the docs. Its also best practices to create a new vmdk (virtual disk) for your images and then mount the new vmdk onto the root partition over the /images directory. I have a document on doing that if you need.

    At its most basic step its just installing centos 7 selecting bare minimum configuration, then installing wget, git, and then downloading the fog installers.

    This one is a bit dated and created by some third party, but the steps are almost the same today: http://blog.ibuddy.info/index.php/2015/06/fog-v-1-3-on-centos-7-full-install-guide/
