Thanks George and Sabastian for helping with the in detail plan for the rollout. Much Appreciated.
Plan for High and Medium site: 1: Deploying via local master FOG server will be ideal for the environment, My plan is to set up standalone FOG server on the high-end laptop in Phase 1 and ship to the larger sites for the rollout and use the same laptop for other medium user locations in phase 2.
Instead of using the storage for image changes, I am planning to copy the image via SFTP on the local FOG Server ( Chopping the image via 7Zip Archive and merging back at destination)
Question: Can we append all the FOG database on the master server once the migration is done on the site for the future reference or to push the application update?
Need your Suggestion for remote and low site users:
1: Can we build the live ubuntu fog server with image, which can USB boot on any other hardware for FOG imaging, with the only base image with Fog Service running.
2: Is there any way to make Clonezilla Zero-touch for the image deployment, as most of the remote users are not technical, with few clicks’ deployment will save Admin time and effort.
Does Domain Join work over the VPN via Fog considering all the necessary AD ports are opened, Plan is to deploy the image either step 1 or step 2, mostly step 2 and then domain join, and application push will be done over the VPN.
On the option to create the application group is fantastic this will help in avoiding multiple FOG images. I have never tried that, do we have any reference document on how to build the application and group.
Also, any thoughts on taking the user backup via Fog, Fog takes the image-level backup (Not recommended ,it will need lot of space), but can we do any customization which will help to take the folder level backup only and restore it back after imaging, I understand at this stage its too much for Fog, but just a thought on the backup
Please let know your inputs and suggestions, that will guide us to take the right decision. My Company leadership is proposing on SCCM with AzureIntune
