I initially found FOG very good. Boot gave up.
We currently have 1 sysprep image that can be sent via ghost to over 20 different types of hardware :)
Trying to replicate this on FOG was a non starter. And I do have a fair amount of Unix/Linix experience.
I found it very unreliable on working between different hardware types in relation to the MBR as well.
Also was fussy over what hardware the server ran from in that it would often lock up when uploading images to the server.
Have since abanonded using FOG as well. Curious to see why so many posts on here about it, as I know of other people that had the same issues as me as well!
I leave the OU box in fog blank and it seems to work fine.
I re-imaged the PC next to me several time recently and FOG popped it back onto the domain each time with no complaint :)
Supermicro box with P4 processor and adaptec RAID 10 SATA disks.
Have imaged the following with no problems:
an old whitebox P4, HP DC5800, HP DC7900, Toshiba SAT Pro A300
Seems to work very well, I'm wondering if they are going to expand the concept of 'snap-ins'?
Can't say I have had any issues above working out the correct kernel arguments for each model of machine. Much less hassle then using WDS.
Wow, makes our server sound amazing... 2.8 gig P4, 1Gb RAM... Gigabit network :D
We have fog spread across two machines. Web GUI/TFTP is on one machine. A P4 2Ghz w/512mb ram and 32Gb SCSI Raid5 array and 100mbit networking.
Storage is on another box, an AMD Sempron 2400+ w/1Gb ram and 250GB SATA, I also spoiled it with an Intel Etherexpress 1000/GT Pro nic.
Yeah... although I've not gotten around to it yet so don't hold your breath :eek:
Just finished cloning my first successful machine with FOG. It is truely awesome!!!
Machine got renamed and joined the domain (I have a special user with delegated rights for machine joining - no logon rights) as if by magic.
The mobile interface works nicely on my HTC Touch Pro2 as well :D
My only criticism is that they don't make it easy to install on Debian - so I used CentOS (Ubuntu isn't an officially supported XenServer OS). Once I'd finally got rid of SELINUX all went well :)
EDIT - btw... I don't why you are having problems adding disk space. I just added another disk and mounted it as /images and then changed the path for the default storage in the web interface.
^^I found it very easy to install it on Debian, using apt-get (and I'm as green with Linux as they get). What problems did you have?
It's exactly the same to install on Debian as Ubuntu... all the packages you need have the same name, all the commands are the same (you might need to set up sudo, but that's about it)...
What exactly didn't work for you?
