@ch3i thank you.
There is nothing in the log pertaining to the situation. Only a favixon not existing
I have just installed a fresh Debian 7.5 OS (client) within a VM alongside my Debian 7.5 with FOG server (host). The client can ping the host but cannot access the page to download the client installer (<FOGSERVER>/fog/client) via Iceweasel. I receive the error that Iceweasel cannot establish a connection to the server. Do you know why this might be?
@george1421, thanks for your response. Would doing this not require the update of the configuration file every time a computer (i.e. MAC address) needs to be added or removed from the server? Would this require any restarting of the PXE boot service? I am not too familiar with networking as I studied OOP at university and just got plonked in to do this as an intern. It does look promising although getting my hands on the 150 computers separate MAC addresses doesn’t sound like a fun day.
We are currently assessing the feasibility of running a FOG server to meet our imaging needs. I’ll briefly explain the situation and our needs as well as the stumbling block we have run into.
The issue we have is that the company also utilises 2 other PXE boot options which are tied together in a company PXE boot menu. This means that on boot we would first access the companies PXE boot menu, manually select the FOG server, and then let it carry on as normal. As I said before, we want this to be zero touch, so is there a method of getting around this that you know of? Perhaps there is an alternative booting environment?
Thanks for the response @Tom-Elliott. I am curious about not being able to specify user accounts in conjunction with a Zero Touch mentality. When installing an iso of, for instance, Debian, specifying the admin name and password is part of the installation process. How does FOG get around this?
I’m looking around at various imaging solutions and I was wondering if anyone could answer some questions I have. I’ve tried contacting the team directly via their web form but it’s been about a week without a response so I thought I’d ask here.
Thanks in advance for your help.
Excellent. Thanks for the replies @george1421 and @x23piracy. You are correct in that I am wanting the system to run the updates after the image is loaded to make sure that it is up to date rather than relying on my images being up to date.
I’m new to FOG and imaging in general so be easy on this newb. Is there a way to specify that certain scripts should run post-image? I.e. Windows Update, installation .exe’s, packages etc.
On a side note, can we specify user account information (name/password) and complete the entire process in a zero-touch way?
