I had an interesting experience trying to get virtual machines in VMWare Player to work with FOG – there was a trial and error process trying to get the VMs to PXE-boot into FOG and image the hard disk, etc.
This is a quick post just to note down some pointers to bear in mind when attempting the above:
- Use ‘bridged’ network type
- Use a static MAC address
- Change the disk type to IDE
- Allocate all disk space to begin with
- Update the fog kernel image (I used 2.2.4)
I’m coming up with a companion video to demonstrate the above on YouTube soon – It’s about time I dug out my screen capture software, Snagit, somewhere from my backups.
UPDATE: The video is now up on YouTube
