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 https://github.com/FOGProject/fogproject.git /root/fogproject”

“cd /root/fogproject/bin”

“./installfog.sh”

 

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]

Fog_Install-01

 

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

Fog_Install-02

 

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

Fog_Install-03

 

The installation now starts and installs packages as needed

Fog_Install-04

 

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

Fog_Install-05

 

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.

Fog_Install-08

 

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
