Yes your understanding is correct. I did it just same way as you wrote here: created image template, register the host and tied with the image, when I’m registering a host it’s asking for host name: Do I need to put a real PC name? or I can leave like “PC” or “test” ?
Once I registered host manually and tied with the image I created upload task on this host. Started machine and was able to see fog menu and time just passed through and it booted to operating system.
I also tested another model: HP Compaq DC5750 - without manual registration. I tried to register it through the fog menu: quick and full registration. 100% the same thing: “atempting to send inventory…” THIS message disappeared and only black screen.
SO: I am unable to register the host through fog menu on quick and full registration and also unable to register the host manually by typing mac address in web interface.
Question: is firmware upgrade on this stage can be helpful? Any thoughts guys? Any other options how I can test what exactly is wrong? PXE and dhcp is working fine, when checking host compatibility everything is fine.
Thank you for your help.
