Linux – FOG Server – Install

Welcome to my FOG Server series. In this session I will describe how I installed the actual FOG Server. I used the following commands to download and launch the installer-script:

“sudo -i”

“apt-get -y update”

“apt-get -y dist-upgrade”

“apt-get -y autoclean”

“apt-get -y autoremove”

“apt-get -y install git”

“git clone /root/fogproject”

“cd /root/fogproject/bin”



This will launch the installer, which first will prompt for Linux version. In my lab I have deployed Ubuntu Server 16.04, so I choose the second option [2]



Next, during the Debian based installation, a series of questions needs to be answered. I answer them as seen below.



As FOG now has every information it needs to install, I press Y to continue



The installation now starts and installs packages as needed



After the packages are installed, they are now confirmed by the installer



Finally the installer configures the necessary services.  At the end of this, I have to open the FOG Server’s web page and update the database schema before I hit ENTER to continue.



FOG now confirms that the setup is complete. I can now login to the FOG Server Management via the URL and proceed with initial configuration.



This concludes this session about installing FOG Server. I can now log in and do some initial configuration, for example AD-integration etc. This I have covered in the following session: Linux – FOG Server – Configure
