@Benjamin_D what was the reason for doing this in phases anyway?
Hello people - let me entertain you with a TV Pilot that I made called Hitchhikers:

RE: Deploy imaging tasks but only run them manually?
@alh the way to do this is how Sebastian said. Set your settings on the host prior, then walk to the box to initiate.
If you ( the administrator ) tell fog to image via the Web gui, fog of course will obey - and take all the necessary steps to do exactly what you asked.
RE: Fog Client 11.12 not renaming computer/joining domain (Could not authenticate)
To upgrade we installed fog 1.4.0 on a fresh Ubuntu server and then imported the database and upgraded the schema.
If the db came from 1.3 or higher, you must also copy the certs. Info on how to do all of this correctly is here: https://wiki.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php?title=Migrate_FOG
RE: Please enter the TFTP issues with Cisco WS-C2960X-48TS-L
Can I send, changing the iPXE menu or using other alternative, the TFTP server?
Your not even getting that far, so this won’t work. Dhcp needs adjusted, this is the most simple, easy, and supportable solution.
You’re NOC should realize you are one of their customers, and should realize you are all on the same team and all have good intentions.
RE: Install problem ubuntu 15.10
Is it possible to import fog1.2 database to a fog 1.4.x ?
It is, fog will update the db to current. you will need to adjust some settings afterwards. Such as ip, and passwords. Details on these are at the bottom of this article: https://wiki.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php?title=Migrate_FOG
RE: Adding FOG database to another FOG database.
will this overwrite the existing database, or will it add my imported database to the existing database?
If it does overwrite the existing database, how do I add my backup to the currently existing database?
It will overwrite it, but that’s fine. You would import anyway, but afterwards you’d tweak just a few IP & password related settings, those are described at the bottom of this article: https://wiki.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php?title=Migrate_FOG
RE: Multiple Fog-server instances on the same server
@jlouie.smart that’s too difficult and not supported and I will not help you with it. Just migrate the data and images to a new box, leaving the old box untouched. When done, shutdown the old box. https://wiki.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php?title=Migrate_FOG
RE: FOG Client can't connect to Fog server or Active Directory after deployment
Are you sysprepping? Was the reference machine previously joined to the domain?
For your images, you should keep them pure - never capture a dirty image because it only causes problems. Pure means NEVER having been on the domain before, and as lean & clean as possible meaning not using old images to make new ones - keep your old images as backups, but build from scratch (installation media) every time - always delete old partitions and remake them, and capture new images.
At my old job, I would include month and year (not day) in my image names.
