@Arjenbulkens I would still try the method @george1421 mentioned just in case (run the script manually and see if any prompts show up). I use snapins quite frequently and have to test using this almost every time. Something is hanging it up and the most common issue for me is whatever I’m trying to run prompting for user input. The snapin method already hides stuff, but it may still be “trying” to prompt the user invisibly.

RE: FOG 1.5.6 pushbullet Plugin not functioning
@Hanz I had re-categorized “api.pushbullet.com” from a blocked category to an allowed one. It all really depends on which filter you use. I’d try whitelisting whatever permutation of all of the subdomains of pushbullet.com your filter uses. It may involve something like:
or if your filter is like mine, there is a checkbox for all subdomains.
If you still are having trouble, let us know what kind of filter you have.
RE: Hostnamechanger fail while renaming client inside the domain
are there any suggestions meanwhile?
I myself do not have any suggestions, but we appreciate your patience through @Sebastian-Roth looking through the client stuff this weekend. I feel that you already know this, but as a volunteer developed platform, sometimes we have to wait a bit for the developers to find free time to look into issues. I’ve been in that boat myself before. If anyone does have anything to add, I’m sure they will chime in.
RE: Windows 10 Image constantly trying to join domain after join.
@SKasai From the fog.log excerpt you posted, this appears to be regular behavior. I checked a log on one of my clients, it matches exactly. Correct me if I am wrong everyone, but I think the client checks to see if it is joined regardless of if it is already joined. This is only speaking to the fog.log message. It appears to me that the FOG client is successfully “talking” to AD as well judging by the “already joined” message.
May I ask what other behavior this is exhibiting? Is it trying to reboot to change the hostname endlessly? If not, and the only symptom is the log message, I myself would not worry too much about it as my clients also do the same. Others, please correct me if I am wrong!
RE: Authentication ERROR: Could not authenticate
@mkeane There is an article on the Wiki where you must perform some steps to maintain control of your FOG client hosts when migrating servers located here: https://wiki.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php/FOG_Client#Maintain_Control_Of_Hosts_When_Building_New_Server
Please let us know if you have access to your old setup still and we can most likely help you.
If you do not, I will defer to the other experts here to see if it is possible to make this work.
RE: I got 2 vmware esxi 5.5 servers now....
@bogle Forgive me if I am wrong, but in a VMware setup, are you not able to use the built in clone/export feature to make an exact copy of that VM? I believe if that is true, that would be the easier method. You can then customize things like the IP and hostname on the copy after it is imported to the other host.I am thinking FOG may not even be necessary in this case for this exact use. I mainly use FOG for “base” images (base install of an OS tailored a little bit to the model or use-case) and customize afterward.
If I am indeed wrong, which i may very well be, it would help the other folks to help you if you provided more info. For instance, may I ask the FOG version you are on?
RE: [Seeking Volunteers] Bench Testing! Our trip to the best results!
@Mokerhamer I wanted to clear up my first reply. I’m sorry, I didn’t want to seem so negative and I didn’t fully understand what this encompassed. I apologize if I came off as a meanie. I now see you have really good ideas/plans (and the equipment to back it up). Thank you for supporting the community through awareness and testing. I wish you the best for your trials and await the results!
