this is my first attempt with FOG. I’d heard about it in the past, but until this tutorial came along, I wasn’t sure if creating a hardware-independent image was possible. We currently use Altiris, which allows us to have a hardware-independent image. However, we are not interested in upgrading to the latest version of Altiris so we are exploring some options. Basically, I set up fog in about 30 minutes, and I spent the better part of this afternoon creating a “master” vm machine to take the image from. Not being familiar with this process, when I reached step 9 and got to this point
“And install the FOG client service. [BE SURE TO REPLACE YOUR “Hostnamechanger.dll” or your machine won’t rename and add to domain after imaging”. Replace this after FOG client is installed."
I wasn’t sure how to proceed. I installed the client service but did not reboot. I then went and found hostnamechange.dll and deleted it. I don’t think that was the proper procedure, but I’m unclear.
Any advice appreciated.
