    Deploying OCS NG Service?

    I'm currently deploying OCS NG in order to inventory our machines and I can't seem to get it to deploy as a service via GPO.

    Has anyone else had success with this? If so, can you provide some insight into what I should be doing?

    Cheers

    Re: Deploying OCS NG Service?

    Right, it now deploys properly - after creating a package with the correct cacert.pem file. The problem I have now is that the service doesn't seem to be doing anything. My 'service.ini' file has the following:

    Miscellaneous= /server:xxx.xxxxxx.xxx.xxxx.xxx.xx /S /NP /DEBUG
    PROLOG_FREQ=24
    OLD_PROLOG_FREQ=24
    TTO_WAIT=7440

    Yet it doesn't seem to be doing anything.

    I just run it as a logon script from a gpo using

    \\unc_to_exe\OcsAgentSetup.exe

    and:

    /servercs_server_ip /S in the parameters section.

    But doing it that way means you can't use it to deploy anything via the OCSreports interface due to there not being the cacert file included, doesn't it? The packaging method does allow this.

    Update, it does now seem to be working. I was just being impatient.

    It doesn't inventory immediately as you've just found either.

    I had the same issue when I tried various ways of pushing it out.

    To be honest I doubt I'd ever use it to deploy anything.

    Ah, it is nice when you have a nice fully working system. GLPI and OCS NG working together in harmony.

    There are a few things the dev's of both projects could improve though. GLPI needs a feature which allows you to group software together, so instead of each component of Office 2007 being listed, they can be combined as a package within GLPI. As it stands, managing licenses through it wouldn't be a simple case of looking at the lists.

    Yup it is nice.

    I'm using the 2 as well.

    Nice to use glpi to track cartridge installs in my printers.

    You running them on doze or nix?

    They're running in Ubuntu - the Uber distro :P

    And they're in a vm to allow me to shift em around whenever I need to.
