That does fix my problems, sorry it took me so long to respond with positive results. I only use fog once a semester, so sorry for the delay.

RE: Notebooks doesn't connect to FOG Server
I could tell we had a language barrier.
From what you have stated the apache web server portion of your fog server is working fine.
I am going to share a document with you that I created doing Fog builds.

I am not sure with English not being your primary language if it will help at all.
Keep us posted and we will keep doing our best to help you get this project done.
RE: Notebooks doesn't connect to FOG Server
When you said this in your original post, “I can reach the management-page of the fog-server from every device.”
I took that as you could reach your fog management page from your laptops.
It is somewhat difficult to help you with the limited information we have to work with. So sorry if we are fishing for more information in order to help you.
[SIZE=3]If your fog server is up and running and setup properly[/SIZE][SIZE=2][SIZE=3], you should be able to boot the notebooks to the short 3 second menu. If you can not get this PXE boot screen, then we need more data from you about your network and your fog server. I am about to head into work so I will check back on this post when I get near my fog server. Can you post the IP address information from your fog server and the notebooks you are trying to PXE boot for me?[/SIZE][IMG]http://fogproject.org/forum/attachments/fog-main-menu-png.62/[/IMG][/SIZE]
RE: WOL only works immediately never as planned or cron task
X23 I am having the same problem with some newer hardware, Dell Optiplex 9010’s. I have my computer labs all torn apart over the summer, so I haven’t been able to try it on my older Dells. I will not be able to try anything until August sometime. I am using fog 0.32, running on a Ubuntu 12.04.2 machine.
The guy who did my job before I got here had issues with WOL so he stuck with version 0.29, and Ubuntu 10.04.
RE: Dell 390's will not boot to NIC...
can you catch the computer during boot up when the dell logo appears, and press F12 and get the computer to boot from the NIC card? if you don’t get the option to boot from the NIC card it isn’t enabled in the BIOS settings.
I just had this same problem with some brand new Dells. There is also a deep sleep mode in some Dell BIOS that needs to be turned off. Without this disabled, the NIC card isn’t even powered on to look for WOL packets.
RE: WOL not working on Dell OptiPlex 9010
I have discovered the problem. I had all the BIOS settings correct for wake on LAN to work, but there is a deep sleep setting in Power management in BIOS that needs to be disabled. With this feature enabled your NIC card is not active and will not see any WOL signals.
Although, when i go to the advanced menu and just issue the Wake command. The computer will wake up and go through the FOG PXE boot menu, but doesn’t boot from the SSD that these machines have. Could this be a kernel issue?
WOL not working on Dell OptiPlex 9010
We received 19 new Optiplex 9010’s last semester. I can’t seem to get Wake On LAN to work for these units. They are using the integrated Intel 82579LM Ethernet adapter. I ran into the same issues with some optiplex 960’s but making them boot from the NIC first seemed to get me through this issue.
If anyone has some insight on this or needs a little more info on this please let me know.
RE: Slow multicast?
I am running into this same issue with my fog server. It seems at right around 20% my multicast speed has declined from 500Mb/min to less than 100Mb/min. I am also running Ubuntu 12.04, and would like to see if I can make it work without rolling back to 10.04.
I am somewhat unfamiliar with this part of your post “Using Webadmin, I logged into the mysql section created a new user (fogadmin) and password, giving this account full permission. I then edited the MYSQL info in /var/www/fog/commons/config.php + /opt/fog/service/etc/config.php. to match.”
If you can spare the time, could you elaborate a bit more about this process?
Thanks, in advance
RE: Fog_0.32 on Ubuntu 12.04
[quote=“Darrell Lanson, post: 4322, member: 1392”]I know that because of FOG I am able to finally take a summer vacation for the first time in 8 years I can image all our computers in about a 2 week period or less if I want compared to taking almost the whole 2 months before.[/quote]
About how many computers are you imaging?
This would be great information to add to my presentation I will be giving, as long as you don’t mind me quoting this statement.
