@george1421 I was able to rebuild iPXE with the latest version and re-run the Fog installer. Worked like a charm! The new laptops now get to the Fog menu. Your help was fantastic! Couldn’t have done it without you! Thanks a ton!
@sebastian-roth Well I ran into a snag by not being able to multicast to deploy images. So for now I have left the Fog server as the master node. If I run into a space issue further down the road I can always move images over to the NAS and vice-versa. Space was really the only reason for using the NAS.
UPDATE: After doing some investigation of the network device(s) configuration; I discovered the multicast looks to be configured properly on the router and switch stack.
For curiosity sake, I have attempted a multicast session for 4 laptops - my transfer rate is approximately 1.85GB/per min. This is exciting. I am going to gradually increase the load from there. If I can get away with 8 devices at a time that would be ideal.
Its strange because I know for a fact upon my first attempt a month ago, multicasting was terrible; it was virtually stationary.
@mesaman0182 You can find the login credentials for the database in /var/www/html/fog/lib/fog/config.class.php. Use those and run mysql -u username -p to open a connection to the local database. Instead of username put in what you find in the config file. It’s usually fogmaster for FOG 1.5.8/newer and root for older installs.
@mesaman0182 From the picture we see that you are using a very old version of FOG. Is this a fresh install? Why did you choose to use that?
Now to answer your question: The one important field you need to set is Host Image. But as we see in the picture you don’t have an image defined yet. So go to the images in the FOG web UI and create one. All the other fields in the host settings can be left as default or empty for now.
