Hello again! I am sorry for multiple post with similar issues. I receive a lot of different errors when attempting different installation configurations. I’ll try to organize what I am attempting to do below and the issues I am having.
Attempt to install FOG remotely, pre-configured, using HTTPS and without having a technician watch it. This needs to be done on a decently large scale. In other words, I want to send an installation package to run on a remote machine, and not have to touch it. I will be remotely deploying images to the machine as well.
What I have:
I have setup my .fogsettings with the correct options, but I get stuck either during installation, or when attempting to PXE boot computers.
I have installed FOG using the following lines to test what would help the most.
sudo ./installfog -S -y
sudo ./installfog -S -C -y
sudo ./installfog -S -K -y
sudo ./installfog -S -C -K -y
I understand you get the "Please connect to http://x.x.x.x/fog/management and update the database then press enter to continue during the setup, but this does not happen with the -y option. It can be done manually later. (If you have a way to do it automatically, please let me know )
Since the -S options forces HTTPS, I have gotten it to work after setting the .fogsettings line to the following. (It won’t install if left null)
But, the most common issue I am having involves the following error associated with the -S option.
Compiling iPXE binaries that trust our SSL certificate......Failed!
the -C and -K options fixed this error, but when Capturing/deploying an image, I get a long range of TFTP errors, resulting in no PXE boot.
My overall goal is to further secure a FOG server installed from scratch and get it to automatically do so.
Any and all help is much appreciated! I am familiarizing myself with the install scripts this week. So Ill be reading! Hopefully I can respond fast to any questions!
(I will update this post once I get back to my documentation on the issues I have faced to see If I missed anything.)
