    FOG Help

    We may be being stupid but we cant seem to connect to hosts, or boot to pxe.

    we have installed ubuntu 10.04 lts server
    installed fog
    allocated static ip
    joined cc4 domain
    set 66, 67, and 60 correctly in dhcp
    made a dns record
    turned wds off on cc4

    created host on fog (new laptop, using correct mac, ip, and host)

    yet still not joy

    I'm running Fog on Ubuntu 10.04 (as a virtual machine) though on a vanilla network, works brill. I'll try to help but I need a little more info...

    in DHCP have you set server option 66 to an ip or fqdn? and is option 67 pxelinux.0?

    Also when your laptop pxeboots, what error messege are you getting from either the dhcp server or from the laptop itself?

    thanks camel,

    66 is set to the ip addy,
    67 is set to pxelinux.0

    when pxe boots the laptop searches for dhcp times out then carries on booting to win.

    i have been going through and checking logs,

    we are getting 'Failed to connect to database server, will try again in next iteration.' in log viewer

    also when i view hosts there is a red mark stating unable to resolve host name

    cheers in advance

    On the database connection, when you installed FOG did you enter a password for the MySQL database? All you need to do is go to /var/www/html/fog/commons/config.php and change the mysql password in that file you match whatever you set it as.

    Windows firewall will be stopping FOG from seeing if the stations are up and running, hence the red mark.

    still getting all the same errors. also found an old thread where @kmount suggested setting connect_timeout = 5000, tried that no luck also.

    still getting database errors in logs too

    I know this is a silly question but do you have the laptop connected to an ethernet port and not just wireless? And also can any other computers pxeboot ok?

    once the laptop is in windows or another os, you can ping both the fog server and the server running the dhcp service?
