mysqlcheck -r fog
Restart service is for that question you do on the last post, maybe i missunderstood the question…
Is there any posibility to force the snapins with command line from the client (Windows)?
About the question:
I use persistent groups & location too but not Active Directory… and I haven’t that problem…
so… What about a database repair procedure?
Fog service is an iteration of services, you can restart it and force to be executed with only stop/start the service. Take care, the services has an execution order, example if you put a task and a snapin, always be executed the task first. The order is by service list, not by launching time.
You can do it from the powershell console, locally or remotelly if you have remote powershell configured.
If you restart the fogservice you lost the useragent until you execute it again or restart the computer.
This is not a solution, but maybe can help you.
All our images on the Images store are manually shrinked, we adjust the final size of the partitions from the postdownload script with our own criteria.
We are doing this from fog1.3.2, we are currently on FOG1.5.6.
We work a lot with scripts, we don’t use msi and exe, all our snapins are developed as scripts, usually powershell for windows and bash scripting for linux, we use sometimes php, python, perl… called from bash a so on.
Check the potential of the scripting for the 2 first points.
And as alternative to deploy software you can work with snapins+chocolatey
On the third point, we use fog snapins to start/stop services, deploy clients etc…
Currently we are using a reversed vnc server deployed/configured/started/stopped/removed as an unattended snapin, where we have firewalls, As GUI we use a Guacamole Gateway with a vnc-proxy, on the other side where we have not firewalls we are using Dameware and RDP to remote control. The services can be controlled with scripted snapins but the clients/servers/proxyes… must be provided as external services.
I only want to add, that with a deep knowledge of the targets, and with a good knowledge about scripting, and if you add a custom/complete toolset around FOG, you can get a pretty and usefull system admin/management environment.
Adding a comment:
Currently we are using false nodes to change the multicast tasks. I mean
To make multicast tasks on desired vlan we are creating a second master node to the location’s storage group, with nic an ip assigned on the vlan that we want to do the task and with false user/password to avoid a redundant synchronization.
By the moment, this solution is working with version 1.5.6 of Master and Nodes.
The node must be precedent on alphabetic order to the real node.
@Tom-Elliott Ok, I understand. That’s a problem to me because all the server’s ip on the service vlan’s are protected. Then i must have the StorageNode on the Management VLAN.
By the moment i’ve solved the problem like i said on the last post. It’s a valid solution for me. But when i have time i try to implement a plugin to handle this dinamically from the interface.
Yes, I see that, by the moment I solve that with a few of dirty code modifying the multicasttask.class.php file to write multicast into the desired interface.
I’ll be pleased to work in a plugin that can do it dinamically.
But I need information about the hooks at least.
