@techadmin said in PXE connection Using Windows 2008 as DHCP Server:
If I clone one box using this dongle and I go and use the same dongle to push images to other devices is this going to be a problem?
We’ve been working on identifying machines by SysUUID (see here) instead of the MAC address. Though this feature is still new and I am not exactly sure if it’ll work in all cases. Give it a go and see how it works.
Next I moved the Clonzilla image over to the FOG server now what do I need to do to compress it so that FOG can reuse t?
What George meant is that you better deploy the Clonezilla image(s) to a machine (using Clonezilla) and capture a new FOG image from that. It saves you a lot of work (converting and generating FOG metadata like partition tables and more) and you’ll have a nicely compressed image right away.
This looks really strange. There is the major part of the URL missing in the output. Should be “http://x.x.x.x/fog/index.php”. When creating the boot USB key make sure you have the
web=http://$myfogip/fog/ parameter set!!
All that said I’d also recommend what George already said. Find that onboard NIC chip and use this. USB NIC PXE boot might work but is quite often a lot of hassle to get to work. See that
has_usb_nic=1 kernel parameter is also just an ugly workaround but we still need this…
