    As posted on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/FOG...t/384574310009 We will be putting out a new release of FOG (.30) some time early next week. It will only be a minor update, with a completely rebuilt init.gz image, that is MUCH smaller. One of the biggest enhancements you will notice is much faster uploads on newer machines. Many thanks again Aaron

    EDIT: Windows 7 is currently supported in version 0.29?....

    erm...im not 100% sure on the 1st answer, we dont have any windows 7 machines at my school, but i know you have to run the FOG windows 7 setup before you upload your image, its available from FOGIP/client

    The 2nd option was changed in version 0.29 by design, you cant now register new hosts via the service, any other way but that!

    is there any way you would be able to test the first point above, we are short on storage space so ntfs resizable would be awesome on W7.

    Why was the service register removed. we used to deploy the client via gp and let them register instead of visiting each machine.

    thanks for your help
    fog is an excellent product

    Im sorry, we spoke about it on fogproject.org the once, you will have to do a search for the thread,

    I would simply install spiceworks get a list of MAC addresses for your machines and then .csv them into the FOG web interface! Sorry I cant be any more helpful!

    EDIT: Have you tried?...http://www.fogproject.org/wiki/index...g%3F#Windows_7

    I think the auto-registration was dropped as laptops connected via wireless would register the wireless MAC address as the primary MAC. When it came to PXE booting, the LAN MAC wouldn't be registered against the device so it would appear as an unknown client.

    The new version has the facility to capture additional MACs and store them against a single host, but requires that registration is done via PXE to ensure the LAN MAC is captured as the primary one.

    If you have OCS inventory I have written a FOG plug-in to import hosts from the OCS database, otherwise a simple script to capture the MAC address and hostname would be all you need to create a csv file to import.
