FOG Client Deployment / Host IP in Client



  • Server
    • FOG Version: Running Version 1.3.4
    • OS: Ubuntu 14.04
    Client
    • Service Version: 0.11.9
    • OS: Windows 7
    Description

    Is their any way I can remotely install the FOG client to multiple machines without having to touch each machine?

    Also, is their a way I can set an IP address within the installer instead of using fogserver as the hostname within the installer? I just changed my hostname on my server to reflect the “fogserver” name but my DNS is taking forever to update on my AD server…

    Thanks all!

    Cheers,

    Joe Gill



  • Hi,

    i hardly recommend PDQ Deploy for easy deployments if you hate GPO’s ;)
    Also the way with ORCA is possible but for what you have a switches for cli.

    I have it licensed to pro mode but simple deployments can also be done in free mode.
    PDQ Deploy is very powerful, take a look :)

    PDQ has AD integration and can also suck hosts from Spiceworks.

  • An update to this… I was able to use Orca and change the IP address in the MSI file to reflect our static IP of our server.

    Admin, this topic can be closed. Thanks!

    Awesome! Thanks!! The wiki solved my problem!

    I’ll look into those tools to deploy the MSI.

    Cheers!

    @Joe-Gill https://wiki.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php?title=FOG_Client#MSI_Switches , and you can use whatever you prefer to deploy the MSI (GPO, PDQ, remote powershell, …)
