Fog image to VirtualBox
Has anyone tried to image a Fog image to a VirtualBox virtual PC? Got the VirtualBox PC to PXE boot from the Fog server and to inventory itself and add itself to Fog as a host but when I come to Quick Image it, it gets to the point of imageing and says "Invalid Host Information" and reboots.
Is it because I have a differnt sized disk set up in VirtualBox somesomething more obvious?
I have managed to do this with VMWare Workstation, I was testing the deployment of a image and created a blank 'Test Image' VM, deployed fine. But that was from one VM to another (Slight different config and HDD size)
Thanks I'll have to try BM and see how it goes
I have had this working successfully, as long as the image isn't too hardware dependant. We imaged a Dell Optiplex 620 which had a 80Gb hard drive - imaged with Multiple Partitions, Fixed Disc Size option and the OS was Windows 7. Created a virtual machine with a fixed 80Gb Virtual Hard Drive and it happily went away and installed it, no issue at all.
The time it fails is if the base hardware the image is coming from is too different or if you are using the "Resize partition" option - sometimes this works and sometimes it doesn't.
