Been using fog for 2 academic cycles now and very happy with how it’s been working.
This year I’ve had a very specific issue I’ve had to solve though.
40 of our computers have had an upgrade, adding in a 240GB SSD as the boot drive with the original 1TB HDD becoming a workspace drive for users.
The OS aspect has been fine as these computers are in a gpo that pushes user profiles to the larger hard drive, but on the deployment side of things I had to do a number of things manually to get my main base image to install deploy correctly.
Firstly, I had to wipe the original HDD manually, install the SSD and disconnect the HDD, deploy the image, then reconnect the HDD and format it to NTFS.
I had a play around with setting the install to drive but to get that to work I’d have to have already wiped the HDD and figured out whether it is seeing the SSD as /Dev/SDA or /Dev/SDB (it wasn’t the same on every machine).
So, question is, is it possible for fog to figure out which is the SSD by itself?
If it could, then there could be the option to install to SSD in the host config rather than specify a device that might change, and could potentially then also have a config to format remaining drives in a specific way (i.e. NTFS for a secondary drive…)
