What Kind Of Image Can Fog Take



  • Hi there I am wondering what kind of image software I can use to image my computer that fog will take. Right now I am up in the air on what to use so I need to know what kind of . extensions I can use?

    Thank You,

    I tried to open the xx.img.000 Files with Ubuntu’s default file extractor (file roller). Within it I see ‘xx.img’. From there it “An error occurred while extracting files” whenever I try to open, manipulate, etc…

    Any help or ideas would be appreciated thanks guys!



  • [quote=“Lee Smith, post: 5518, member: 384”]if you open the img like i tried doing in linux, it uses some kind of extractor, I know you can extract something out of there but I havn’t gone as far as looking into it, it can be extracted with linux though

    hope this helps

    Hey thanks Lee! Sounds silly but I’ve never used FOG in a GUI environment (with the exception of the web dash, of course.)
    Anyone know if it’s possible to do all this from the command line possibly a Tarball extract?

  • Is there away to view data within the .img file or pull out data?

    Fog creates its own image files from the clients that you upload. It doesn’t really accept pre-made image files from other software unless it’s the same software that Fog is using (partimage.)



  • Hi,

    When you have uploaded your image using FOG, it uploads usually into the same place as your images which is images/dev/

    The name of the file will be called the mac address of the machine you have uploaded so you will need to rename it to nameofpc.img

    thanks

  • If you do not mind me asking Lee what software do you use to create your .img for your images? Oh and thank you for information.



  • I use extension .img I rename the image once ive uploaded it to the server

    don’t know any others but im sure someone will post others

    thanks

    Lee
