Bit of a weird one, we actually use fog to manage a fleet of devices that are constantly being turned around and re-imaged as we’re an events company so devices never remain on fog for a long period of time to set up services etc.
The problem I’m having is I have an image of 4 partitions (including system reserved) that images fine and works however as part of a procedure we have in place, ( I have built a custom recovery partition into the HDD on the image so on-site, someone can recover the device back to our “base image”) I have made a different partition (E) the active partition rather than the C drive. This is leading to all the computers coming out post fog image with the same computer name rather than the one registered against the mac address on the fog database which is causing network collisions and all sorts of people moaning about it.
Is the answer set up active directory or is there something someone can think of to aid this problem. I know fog has the hostname changer which I presume was working fine when the C drive was primary as each mahcine would image and come out unique.
Ubuntu desktop 12.04
Imaging various dell laptops and desktops all running windows 7
HDD content: system reserved, C drive (windows os), D (computer back up image), E (recovery partition, essentially a copy of a windows 7 disc containing the “system image recovery” algorithm under the repair this computer section")
Thanks in advance.
