    IP Configuration and second hard drive

    Just set up a FOG server

    Ubuntu 9.10

    Is this IP config right? So it broadcasts to the entire network

    Code:
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback
    auto eth0
    iface eth0 inet static
    	address 10.201.98.90
    	netmask 255.255.0.0
    	network 10.201.0.0
    	broadcast 10.201.0.255
    	gateway 10.201.98.254
    (Our network uses the 10.201.x.x range, servers in 10.201.98.x range)

    Also there is a second 320gb hard drive installed in the machine which is totally blank and not partitioned or anything, how could this be configured so FOG will use it to store images etc? (FOG is not installed yet)

    Cheers!

    Looking at those ranges it does appear to be correct. But I can't say for certain unless I had more information on your network =)

    As far as adding a second hdd for fog it is very easy to do!

    FOGUserGuide - FOGProject Wiki

    That should point you in the right direction. =) Let me know if you need more help

    Got the extra storage up and running by mounting it as the Images directory!

    Is it normal for a machine to take around 30 minutes to upload a 5.5gb image yet only take 5 minutes to download it back on to the same machine?!

    yes this is entirely normal. Fog uses compression, so in the upload process it is shrinking the image and uploading it as it goes. The reverse takes less time to process. Glad to see you got it working properly.
