it was set to dhcp, but i changed it by right clicking on the wired network connection by the clock, choosing edit connections > auto eth0 > edit > ipv4 > then manually setting it, applying then closing the window, however i have just gone to double check and its rest back to dhcp?
yep got that set
ok managed to get the ip manually set, (PITA!) but im still not able to get yum to authenticate ive tried editing the yum.conf and adding htt, username and password but to no avail, ive also tried adding the username with the domain\ prefix but that didnt work either
well ive managed to resolve it.... i plugged in a t-mobile webnwalk usb dongle and did it that way.....
Ive now got it installed and all up and running, i can log into the web console from my machine and set up sessions etc, however when trying out the test (memtest) the machine im trying it on will not pxe boot into memtest, instead it gets stuck trying to contact one of our dhcp servers???
You need to specifiy the TFTP server ip adress and boot file -
1. Open DHCP configuration Start > Administrative Tools > DHCP.
2. Then expand your server, expand the applicable scope (often only one is there)
3. right click on Scope Options
4. click Configure Options
5. tick 066 and enter the IP Address of the FOG server
6. tick 067 and enter pxelinux.0 (thats a zero).
7. Make sure that 060 is unticked.
^^ make sure youve done that
and make sure that on the fog machine the firewall (System -> Administration -> Firewall) is off and SELinux is off (System -> Administration -> SELinux Management).
also you will need to disable iptables and ip6tables in System -> Administration -> Services
yep all that was done, turns out that WDS was running (but not in use) and it was interfearing with the fog side of things.
all sorted now, just getting to grips with it cheers
Do you have to manually add all the devices by mac address or can you import them from a database? we run spice works here so we have them all in a database already, that possible?
sweet! where do you import it?
i have thus far been able to run mem test etc but i have just tried to upload an image and i get en error when it tries to mount the file system then reboots?
Im getting a connection refused error, i have pointed fog to our current image server ( lots of disk space..) that box is running xp, i have put that machines ip into the fog settings. i want it to store its images on this machines hard drives.
any idea why it wont connect?
