Snapins do not show whether they were installed or not, because snapins aren’t tracking software and their status. Snapins are a simple means of running scripts on the client machine. We don’t track them. We track the return codes of snapins. Not whether or not that snapin has been installed, if that install succeeded or failed, or any thing else you might think snapins do. They were not designed to do such a thing as it is something relatively complex to work out.

RE: A few questions about the API?
Well, The cron syntax wouldn’t “disappear” unless your web front end translates the date/schedule to a Cron style system automatically.
Yes the idea should be possible, though I don’t know how best to help except to help provide basic syntax of the API so you can process and parse the data that’s returned.
I guess, though, I don’t fully understand the why. Everything (with exception of the scheduled cron tasks) is already available via the GUI we provide as a part of our software. “viewing said Scheduled tasks, view active tasks, and when a system is added to the host list that host will be added to the web page” are already done with the provided interface. Why create a new hen-house when the one you got with the land is also a hen house that does everything you need it to do.
RE: Not really and Problem and not really a Feature request....
The radio buttons are accurate. If you choose Reboot when Shutdown was chosen, it unselects Shutdown. If you Select Shutdown when Reboot was selected, Shutdown gets unselected.
The reason you can unselect them at all basically means that you don’t require it to restart or shutdown.
RE: encoding problem snapin import
@Sebastian-Roth If my memory serves me correctly we did encode all of this for a little while, but too my knowledge we’ve moved away from encoding special characters in preference of using proper sanitization of inputs into the database. That’s not to say everything was fixed, but I’m pretty sure we moved away from this particularly because the & would get encoded as &, then the & in the & would get encoded, and so on and so forth.
RE: Forensic Image Analysis with FOG
@icescout27 you can disable the compression in 1.5.7.
That said it isn’t quite a dd raw image per say as it’s not using dd in its native form. It’s using partclones imager format which is still a raw copy, just not from dd. The reasoning for this is then our scripts would simply call partclone.restore to place that image on disk regardless of type (raw, btrfs, ntfs, ext, etc…)
If you really need a true sector by sector you can manually run a dd instance if you know how.
Typically, though, fog isn’t really intended for forensic usage.as we typically are capturing images to be used for mass on other systems. This of course is not to say fog couldn’t be used for this, just it’s not something we are familiar with as part of our product.
If you need any help I’m sure we can provide some assistance.
RE: Running Fog and other machines in virtualized environment, but cannot make capture work
On this host item, remove the C:\ from the host device line and restart the machine.
From the GUI -> Host List -> Win10-Gold -> Host Device, delete c:\ and save. You may need to cancel and recreate the task.

I haven’t removed them from the page for now.
