    Clonezilla

    Hi all.

    I have 35 new laptops. I have installed extra programs and made one a "master"

    I need to clone the other laptops. I can use a "Clonezilla" disk to do them one at a time........takes ages



    What about running "Clonezilla" from a 2008r2 server would that be difficult to set up.

    I did try to install UBUNTU on the server but the server was not too happy about that and said there was a permission problem.

    Any tips Ta

    Dead easy mate an because its linux you could use an old machine to test until your happy with it fog. If you google fog setup there is a very useful guide someone has done on spiceworks ive been using it for two years now very inpresed with it

    Unhappy Ubuntu and Fog.................ARRRRGGGHHH

    Been trying to install UBUNTU and then FOG. What a laugh it has been...On and off 4 days.


    Tried a few different tutorials but there is always problem. I am not LINUX literate but I am learning fast.

    I was going to give up but I am going to have another go tomorrow.

    If anyone has the time to help I would be very very grateful

    I am going to use the guide from


    https://dl.dropbox.com/u/9458832/Ubu...ll%20guide.pdf if anyone want to follow me along.

    I have lots of stupid questions to ask about linux repositories, keys, sudo, bash etc

    Ta

    Frustrated but not beaten yet!

    Fog setup complete

    It tells me to open http://10.6.185.6/fog/management but I get a error ACCESS DENIED


    Do I need to change some settings on the proxy server

    It shouldn't involve the proxy server. You should have an exception for internal IPs/Hosts?

    Sorted
    I typed in http://localsource/fog/management and it came up with a message that fog needed updating

    I pressed update and voila

    So what is the difference between http://10.6.185.6/fog/management and http://localsource/fog/management

    Moving onto playing with fog This should be another laugh

    Ta again
