[I]When we go to change the computer name on a machine will be changed, however it will not rejoin the domain.[/I]
Fog Server: Ubuntu 10.04 LTS fully updated as of today 02/07/2012
Machines to be imaged:
Windows 7 32-bit pro
I will note Fog works perfectly otherwise, it’s a dream come true. We just have one annoyance;
We have lab machines that either go bad or need to be moved to other parts of our building. When we use the FOG management console to rename these machines FOG goes through the process of naming them and restarting them, however it disconnects these machines from the domain. Thus when we rename the machines in FOG, the service will recognize the names are not the same for the same MAC address and thus causes the name listed in the FOG console to be applied to the machine in question. The machine will then restart and the name will be applied, however when we log into the machine after this has happened the error message saying that the machine is not trusted by the domain (because it is no longer part of the domain.) To fix this we are having to go in as the local administrator and re-join the domain manually. Is there some setting I’ve missed or something I need to add/configure to make FOG join the domain (again) when it re-names a computer?
FOG already adds computers to the domain properly when imaging them, just not renaming them.
