I’m thinking I’m missing something.
We’ve recently had to redo our network at the school, and I’m getting around to setting up my fog server again.
And I have it all set up I think, its up and running I can access it on the network. Ping it all the good stuff.
My issue comes when I try to PXE boot and try access the fog server from a potential hosts. they don’t see the fog server.
So I’m wondering if I need a few more ports open? or what I am doing wrong. did I miss something. because that is very possible.
if we need more info to troubleshoot I’m more than happy to grab it.
I have currently open ports to start with:
*Starting Nmap 7.80 ( https://nmap.org ) at 2021-03-30 10:16 CDT

Basic Task: Capture Image - loop
I have an HP8300 Desktop PC.
Fresh Install of Windows 7.
All updates Applied.
Using Fog 1.5.2 on Ubuntu 16.04.4 LTS (freshly rebuilt)
Trying to capture my first image since Fog 1.2.0…
According to the Wiki I no longer need to run FogPrep.
and I don’t really need the functionality of FogClient (so I didn’t install).
really don’t need to sysprep do I?
I was under the impression that the backbone of Fog was Clonezilla, so can I not just capture a prebuilt image and have it ready for instant deployment or do I need to go though all the work of setting up and syspreping my machine? ('cuz I tried that too and it failed. gave up and reimaged. and am still having the same issue. infinite loop of fog trying to capture and recapture and recapture the image…)
My walkthrough is several revisions old and all the wiki says is:
Create Image object (which I have done).
Assign Image object to registered host (done).
Create a basic capture task. (also done)
Capture completes?? machine goes to reboot. reboots and proceeds to recapture the image. it does this until I intervene…
What am I missing?
Any Info you can provide will be greatly appreciated, Please and thank you.
If you need more info for a better diagnostic, I’ll happily provide all I can.
If this has happened before…? I couldn’t find anything similar.
Point me in the right direction.
