I don't know how CC4 works - I've not seen it in action, and nor do I intend to. Does the PXE builds on CC4 allow for adding custom images? If so, then great, but if not then the reason the shared tech might want FOG to run alongside it is so he can build his laptops from his custom image (to leave as standalone).

If you wanted FOG to run along side it, you could keep it seperate and set up FOG to be DHCP and DNS and connect it to a single switch with the target macihnes. In effect a small network used solely for imaging.
This can then travel around from school to school without altering scope settings on each DHCP server and messing around with IP settings on the FOG server (assuming the FOG server will be portable, rather that one at each school).

I see two ways of having multiple PXE options on the same network.
Either A) switch the PXE boot image option (at the DHCP server) between CC4 and FOG as and when required. Might be scriptable?
Or B) Find a PXE menu capable of running on the existing setup, which will allow you to choose what to run at PXE boot. Most online material for PXE menus seem to be focused on Linux, but you may be lucky - I don't know if that makes a difference.
See here: http://www.fogproject.org/wiki/index...pplications%3F. May be possible to add CC4's build boot image in there.

you have GOT to be kidding me, you've clearly never seen RedHat (or centos) Enterprise.

Yeah, this is what the shared tech has planned I think. Little 24 port switch and a VM of FOG on his laptop - probably the best way anyways if he's round and about at different schools.

It's not really DHCP's job to do that

Well that's where you define the PXE server, so surely it would be there that you define two PXE servers if DHCP could allow it.

Seems to be great and everyone loves it. Even with that guide, as a Linux n00b I totally failed at trying to get one working. Something to do with having two default gateways back in the day; couldn't download all the bits for FOG and then switch everything back in Linux for the install process. Didn't know enough, and to be honest still don't.
Still, no longer NM here and the new Academy and NM have managed to get one going. Been great apparently though not touched it. Looking forward to having another stab at it someday.
