I knew I read that netdom was now redundant and thats what threw me, I installed an old version of fog client off a memory stick instead of off /fog/client so my bad. I';ve installed the latest version and did all the above. I also read some where that disabling most of the options except for hostname changer when installing the client might help. After doing that I now get this in the log file:

I've read about this issue before and I think the answer to it was to recompile the hostnamechanger.dll. Gonna do some reading but hopefully this sorts it. Thanks Morganw
