Fresh install of Fog 1.1.2 on Ubuntu 14.04.
I can upload and download images fine. I can run snapins.
However, I cannot join a domain. I can ping the domain from the newly imaged machine, I can do DNS lookups for the domain services, and I can join the domain manually. But joining automatically doesn’t work. I have the “Join domain after image task” box checked. I put credentials in the host configuration, and it won’t join. I put the credentials in the Fog AD Defaults and it won’t join. I put the credentials in both the host config and defaults section and no luck. The domain is correct, the username is “Administrator”, the password is encrypted, and the OU is set to the blank for default. Any thoughts?

Can't join domain in 1.1.2
Fresh install of Fog 1.1.2 on Ubuntu 14.04.
Can't add AD OU in 1.1.2
Fresh install of Fog v 1.1.2. After I create a host, I go into the Active Directory section to define how it should join the domain. “Organizational Unit” now appears to be a drop-down menu instead of an editable text field. Putting in the domain admin credentials doesn’t populate the drop-down, and I can’t enter anything in it. Is there somewhere else I should be entering the OU info?[ATTACH=full]1086[/ATTACH]

Cannot run snapins
I can create and upload snapins with no problem. I can even add them to individual hosts. However, when I try to Task Management to actually run the snapin, I get an error that reads, “Failed to create deploy task. Snapins are already deployed to this host.” (Even though there are no snapins running.) When I go to Active Snapin Tasks, it says “No Results Found.” I am not trying to join a domain. I just can’t run a snapin. I had this problem on 1.0.1, so I deleted the whole Fog installation and database, downloaded and installed 1.1.2, and created new hosts, images, and snapins. Same problem. Any thoughts?
How to reboot clients?
Maybe my searching abilities are failing me, but I cannot figure out how to reboot a client from the server.
I am trying to automate a large deployment which includes installing drivers and joining computers to a domain. The image pushes fine and everything works, but there is one point when the newly imaged client requests a reboot and requires a user to click the button. I would like to avoid pushing “reboot now” on all of my machines. Ideally, I would run a reboot task, but I can’t find one. I have tried creating a reboot batch file and pushing it as a snap-in, but I get an error that reads, “Failed to create deploy task. Snapins Are already deployed to this host.”
So how do I force a bunch of clients to reboot when I want them to? The documentation for “Task Reboot” makes it sound like this will only work when an image is set to be deployed to a machine, so the functionality is built in to the client service, but isn’t really helpful for my situation.
Deploy stops after restoring MBR
I’m running Fog v1.0.1 on Fedora 20 on a physical Dell laptop. I have imaged a Windows 7 physical computer and have it saved with no problems. Multiple Partition Image, Single Disk. When I try to download/push/deploy this image, to the same computer or to a different system, the same thing happens: It goes through the initial steps and gets to “Restoring MBR,” and then reboots. It never switches to the blue status bar screen, it never actually pushes the image. After the reboot the task is no longer active in Fog, and the PC boots to “No operating system found.” Any thoughts on what I might be doing wrong?
RE: Can't join domain in 1.1.2
Axel12, thanks for pointing out the obvious to me. :) I looked through the log and it turns out I had disabled the Auto Log Out module for the client service. (Evidently, that’s important…) I enabled all modules and, voila! Joined the domain. Thanks for the help.
RE: Cannot run snapins
That appears to have done it. Thank you!
What does that command do? Is it something I will have to run on future installations?
Also, is there a good documentation page or tutorial on Snapins? I still don’t understand the difference adding a snapin through the host as opposed to through Task Management. Deleting snapins I’ve added doesn’t seem to unschedule them. I can’t choose which snapin to run when I click Single Snapin in Task Scheduler… I’m sure I’m doing this wrong or don’t quite understand it, but I haven’t been able to find a good page that explains the details of how Snapins work. Thanks again, Tom!
