Using FOG server as an imaging solution.


I'd like to know what people think of FOG as an imaging solution. What issues have you seen that are a problem?

I only set it up a long time ago for a test and was impressed.

The project has been around for quite a while. It has been mentioned on LQ by many people. Looks like it has stepped up it's presentation on the web site too.

The only problem I knew of was learning it. There will be a learning curve as with any new system. It is a system where all parts need to be known and understood. Some issues with pxe may have to be overcome depending on your hardware.

Any backup is better than none! With ransomware gaining you have to have a system where you have a golden image ready and offline so that may be it's only drawback in my opinion. I'd use it on a physical lan outside of any wan connection.

Others may have some input on this project.
