• I am trying to install this on a vim and was wondering if it’s stable?

  • Hi, I did the folowing:
    Using VMware with appliance: [url]http://www.vmware.com/appliances/directory/246903[/url] and updated it to Version 0.32, it was an process of ~30min, without problems and working for me.

    This steps worked for me under Ubuntu:
    [INDENT=1][FONT=courier new]cd /opt[/FONT][/INDENT]
    [INDENT=1][FONT=courier new]sudo wget [url]http://downloads.sourceforge.net/freeghost/fog_0.32.tar.gz[/url][/FONT][/INDENT]
    [INDENT=1][FONT=courier new]sudo tar -xvzf fog_0.32.tar.gz[/FONT][/INDENT]
    [INDENT=1][FONT=courier new]cd fog_0.32/[/FONT][/INDENT]
    [INDENT=1][FONT=courier new]cd bin[/FONT][/INDENT]
    [INDENT=1][FONT=courier new]sudo ./installfog.sh[/FONT][/INDENT]

  • If this is in a production environment, did you change your Windows/Linux DHCP servers to point to the corrected IP address as well? I seem to remember running into this as well when I was testing, let me go back through some of me notes and see if you can check a couple other files.

  • Currently running as a vm off a vm server install. It is in a production network. I set up fog as .30 upgraded to .32. got pxe boot to work in both versions. Have not chagned mysql password. The one opps I have made is I needed to change the static address from the Install address from .11 to .10. I have changed the ip in the information tab in fog and edited the config files.

    sudo gedit /opt/fog/service/etc/config.php
    sudo gedit /var/www/fog/commons/config.php

    The problem now is my clients cannot connect to the tftp server. When I try and register the hosts it gets stuck on attempting to register fog. When I try and update the Kernel it gives me a tftp error message. 😞

  • How do you have FOG setup currently? Is it in a VM or on a physical box. Are you testing this at home or at work in a production environment? How did you setup FOG? Did you change the MySQL passwords during the install? Any additional info you can give will help with this problem. Personally, i’ve setup FOG more times than I can count for testing purposes, and currently administer multiple FOG servers at my job. Once it’s setup, it’s rock solid.

  • Thanks I’ll try and get it up and running. Atm I’m having trouble getting the workstation to pxe boot… have read I may need a boot disk.

    Sure is. Your performance may vary depending on host hardware, load, etc
