How to install OCSNG 1.0.1 on OpenSuse 10.2

Reading time ~9 minutes

下面我将描述如何安装OCSNG服务器和客户端.服务器的安装在openSuse Linux中,文中将提到Linux和Windows代理的安装方法.最终能在界面中看到两个节点的清单信息,不过只有Linux的哪个会每天更新.

This article is talking about how to install OCSNG 1.0.1 on a openSuSE 10.2 system.


  • Requirements:

    You have to meet the following requirements.
     Apache version 1.3.33 or higher / Apache version 2.0.46 or higher.
     Mod_perl version 1.29 or higher.
     Mod_php version 4.3.2 or higher.
     PHP 4.3.2 or higher, with ZIP and GD support enabled.
     PERL 5.6 or higher.
     Perl module XML::Simple version 2.12 or higher.
     Perl module Compress::Zlib version 1.33 or higher.
     Perl module DBI version 1.40 or higher.
     Perl module DBD::Mysql version 2.9004 or higher.
     Perl module Apache::DBI version 0.93 or higher.
     Perl module Net::IP version 1.21 or higher.
     Perl module SOAP::Lite version 0.66 or higher (not mandatory)
     MySQL version 4.1.0 or higher with InnoDB engine active.
     Make utility like GNU make.

    If you can use yast for managing package, I believe you could install all of them within 20 minutes. I won’t say more about this.

  • Installing Management/communication Server and Web Console

    You must have root privileges to setup management server. Login OS as root, then do the following:
    1)Download install package from http://nchc.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/ocsinventory/OCSNG_LINUX_SERVER_1.01.tar.gz

    2)unpack it
    Suse:/mnt/hgfs/win/OCSNG # cp OCSNG_LINUX_SERVER_1.01.tar.gz /root
    Suse:/mnt/hgfs/win/OCSNG # cd
    Suse:~ # tar zxf OCSNG_LINUX_SERVER_1.01.tar.gz
    Suse:~ # cd OCSNG_LINUX_SERVER_1.01/
    Suse:~/OCSNG_LINUX_SERVER_1.01 #

    3)run installer
    Suse:~/OCSNG_LINUX_SERVER_1.01 # sh setup.sh

  • Configuring Management Server

    The following is a post-install setup for management server. Y will go through it from a web browser. Open FireFox it is my current favorite browser and point it on URL http://Ip_address/ocsreports

    The first warning message should be this.

    WARNING: You will not be able to build any auto deployment package with size greater than 2M.
    You must raise both post_max_size and upload_max_filesize in your php.ini to correct this.

    Do the following to fix it:
    # vi php.ini
    The default post_max_size is 8M, we are going to increase upload_max_filesize to 12M
    ; Maximum allowed size for uploaded files.
    upload_max_filesize = 12MWe should restart apache to take it effect
    Run this command:
    /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

    Press F5 to refresh the first web page, this warning is still there. Let’s just go ahead to input the mysql >
    <table width="100%" >
    <tr >
MySql login :



</tr>
<tr >

MySql password :



</tr>
<tr >

MySql HostName :



</tr>
<tr >


</tr>
<tr >


</tr>
</table>
root
xxxx
localhost

Click Send button.

There is a text box as the following:

Please enter the label of the windows client tag input box:
(Leave empty if you don’t want a popup to be shown on each agent launch).


I’d like to use “Asset ID” for this field. Click ‘Submit Query’ button to finish it.

Now, you are able to log into web console from http://Ip_address/ocsreports/
Before you input admin/admin , you could use different languages. OCSNG 1.01 support 11 languages.


  • Setting up Agents on openSuse and a Windows Xp client.

    Download agent packages from internet.

    must then be imported manually into the server through
    Administration Console.
    - http: Agent can connect to Communication Server and will interact
    with it to know what is has to do (inventory, ipdiscover,
    deployment…)
    Which method will you use to generate the inventory ([http]/local) ?
    OK, OCS Inventory NG agent will be running in mode ;-)

    Suse:~/OCSNG_LINUX_AGENT_1.01 #

    The installer will install agent and a cron job on target Linux system. The job will launch OCS Inventory NG Agent once a day under root account, that means a update will get into database every day. Now you will see one single node in the web console.

    ->Installing a Windows Agent
    OCSNG 1.01 does not support Vista yet, so I tested it on Windows Xp/2K/2K3 and it works very well.
    You will donwload OCSNG_WIN32AGENT_1.01_repack.zip
    Unzip it and run ocsagent.exe. I’d like to test a standalone version agent, it is not a service version agent.
    Double click ocsagent.exe, then you will get a new folder C:\ocs-ng
    Create a batch file in this folder.
    My scan.bat file as below:
    ______________
    OCSInventory.exe /server:Ip_Address_of_server /np /tag:”LiuZheng” /hkcu /force

    _______________
    In order to get inventory scan into database, you will double click scan.bat file. Now, you will get one more node in web console. It is a good idea to copy c:\ocs-ng folder on a USB key. Then you are able to run inventory scan on other Windows machines. If you are going to get update inventory from Windows machines, you have to install OcsAgentSetup.exe agent on them.

    If you have any issue please add a comment blow or send me a email. I could help you later if I might have any idea.

    OCSNG现在还没有中文的界面,它的代理和服务器端是支持中文的.如果你在一些中文的操作系统上做了清单扫描,扫描的某些信息在Webconsole中查看的结果可能是乱码.这时候,你可以进入浏览器的内码设置,设置成中文后,你会看到正常的中文显示.这说明它是可以支持多语言的.

    为了在做资产管理的时候对于用户比较方便,我们可以是用gpli项目. GPLI有中文界面,而且能提供流程支持.GPLI的安装和配置手册待续.

    这个安装手册用英文写,如果给您带了了不便请谅解,您有什么问题的话欢迎给我留言,谢谢观看!
