You dont need netdom anymore just have the newest fog client on the PC .32. You will need to update the hostnamechanger.dll. C# needs to be .net2 then you create it.

Thanks mate didn't know that. Been using netdom for no reason then. Is this the same with XP? Only I have had issues with XP and the latest version of FOG. Basically FOG hasn't been adding the machines to the domain and in some cases it doesn't even rename the machines. But the same machines join the domain if I use a windows 7 image.
You need netdom if you are using XP (i think). Could it be that the username format to join the domain is different? On the web console Win7 works like domain\username but xp was just username. Again i think this i correct as now it is set up i rarely have to change anything.
We are using mulitiple FOG clients for various bit of the setup. the FOG server is installed as .31; the init.gz is .29; the client on the PC is .32. FOG doesnt seem to care if all these are mismatched.
FOG server .31 was used because it was the newest one when we set it up
init.gz .29 was used because the uploads and deployments are quicker than any other version we have tried
Client .32 was used to get the PCs to join the domain even if there was a computer account in AD with the same name
You CAN use single resizable image. But you MUST sysprep the image with the shutdown switch and then upload the the image. works hunky dory then!

That looks a lot like documentation to me...
Let me preface by saying I am very new to network administration and don't have more experienced people with me to assist, so please forgive what probably seems like basic questions;
I am trying to image Windows 7 machines using a FOG server (.32). I already ran imaging on them, but thought that it would work the same as XP (i.e. didn't do anything with sysprep or FOGprep), and they are currently not working. I need to get them going in the next day or two for the teacher that will be using them. I'm trying to run FOGprep now on the one machine that I didn't image so I can upload an image correctly and redeploy it to the other 7 computers that are fouled up, but I am getting the message "Requested registry access is not allowed" (even when I tried to run it on the admin account). I doublechecked the registry access settings, and it wasn't set up to block anyone's access.
Does anyone have ideas on how to fix this issue, and is there anything else I need to do to have the computer ready to upload its image? I've read several blogs about it, and they all seem to be based on imaging computers that are just getting everything installed on it for the first time.
