Yep, this is true. I set all my passwords to be "i1ik3bak3db3an5", that's nice and secure.

OK, so I need to edit 2 files someplace to incorporate a password and then how do I change the password? and do I change the fog user and or sql? ;-\ i suc at linux, sorry
oh yeah, how do i spell i1ik3bak3db3an5 again? ;-)
if/when I get fog working what is a good number of clients per image at one time?
I have a 100mb lan (i know it's slow but it is a non profit biz) and I have 400 machines to image.
I'm sure trying to do all of them at once might cause the end of the world.
Please can someone help. I have install the latest fog server on ubuntu 9 and it appears to have installed correctly. I have changed the dhcp settings for 66 and 67 I think and the client will boot and give me the menu. I can get at the management window ok and set up a task to image the client ok.
The client boots and tries to imahe but I get an error saying that it cannot copy the image to /images/
Has anyone got any ideas.
Thanks for all your help.
Sounds like your configuration on the whole is fine but either your images directory doesn't exist or you need to change permissions to make it writeable... Do you know how to use chmod?
Do I have to do a cdmod 777 so that anyone can write to this directory/ It does exist.
777 is the quick and dirty way to do it
I would expect it to work with 770 or 775
put your fog lights on - it might make the problem transparent ( apparent )
For the proxy, what if you don't have to use a username and password to get through it? I haven't been prompted for a username and password is just comes up with *Checking package: apache2 ... failed!
Im new to this Forum and this is my first post.
Im trying to Install FOG and I am getting this error as well "Apache2 Failed"
Looking at the previouse threads it sounds like it maybe to do with proxy settings? My internet only works with a proxy settings, turning the proxy off will not work for me. Is there anyway round this. Im desperate to get this working....
Any help will be Appreciated.
I have managed to sort this out now. I took the server to another place of work which doesnt require Proxy settings and installed FOG there.
All works fine now.
You can set proxy settings in your /etc/environment file on your Linux server (on Ubuntu anyway), along the lines of:
Which works fine for most proxies. However, if your proxy uses NTLM authentication, rather than a username/password passed explicitly, then you'll need to use something like NTLMAPS to authenticate for you. You then set the host:port in the proxy settings to the IP:Port of the box running NTLMAPS (the port defaults to 5865)Code:http_proxy="http://username:password@host:port/" https_proxy="http://username:password@host:port/"
