I wanted to come up with a couple of videos to demonstrate Fog in action at home – with the first video recorded I didn’t want to spend too much time editing and get distracted from experimenting with Fog itself. The videos are only a demo and not intended as a tutorial – in fact they’re more for my own reference.
This video demonstrates the steps needed to register a client and Uploading an image, which I’ve broken down into four steps:
1) Registering a client with Fog
2) Creating an image object and associating it with the client
3) Creating an Upload task for the client in Fog
4) PXE-booting the client to capture the image and upload it to the Fog server
For my own HP I have two Windows 7 images uploaded onto the Fog Server – a Windows 7 image with all plugins and applications, and the other without any applications to deploy software such as Office 2007 as snap-ins.
I’ll be back soon with the second video demonstrating deploying an image to a client (still under production).
