I really need help with an OCS Inventory install on a Server 2003 machine

Like the subject says, I have no idea what I am doing. The OCS Website cannot write to the cache and template_c folder. I have them shared for everyone. Also, I have installed the client on two machines but I can see niether of them on the server interface. Please help!

    If it helps, it is an Open Source Software, written for Linux but I have the Windows Version.

  • justcrash Oct 20, 2008

    All drivers and updates are current. It was installed as administrator. It is on Windows Server 2003 SP 2.

  • justcrash Oct 20, 2008

    Yes, all drivers are current, all software is patched. It was installed as administrator. It is on a Windows Server 2003 SP2 box.

  • justcrash Oct 20, 2008

    I've been through the wiki page with a fine tooth comb. I know I am missing something obvious but never the less, it isn't working at all. There is a Windows Version and a Linux version. I am using the Windows version.

  • justcrash Oct 20, 2008

    Ok, well I've been on that for 2 weeks and hitting their forums for just as long (if not longer) but it seems the people who got it running don't visit their forum. I am literally at the end of my rope. :(

  • justcrash Oct 20, 2008

    Ok, where is the services link? How do I get my $9.99 back? And thank you for trying anyway! :)

  • justcrash Oct 20, 2008

    Ok, still need help here. :)

  • justcrash Oct 20, 2008

    Yes, it was installed with a GPO at start up on the client machines.

  • justcrash Oct 20, 2008

    Still an issue.

  • justcrash Oct 20, 2008

    Scott:



    "The Requested Web Page is Not Available"



    Have another link, sir? :)

  • justcrash Oct 21, 2008

    Which components? I've installed apache2, mysql

  • justcrash Oct 21, 2008

    Which components? I've installed apache2, mysql and the FTP Program. I've been over the manual but it doesn't seem to cover how to configure them, outside of installing the services.

  • justcrash Oct 21, 2008

    Still an issue.

  • justcrash Oct 21, 2008

    I'm not sure I understand your issue. You seem to be angry because the manual didn't help. I apologize if I offended you.

There is a downloadable manual. You need to install other components for it to work.

    Sorry that link was broken:


    Please try and read this document: Micrsoft V++

    Just download the NMake15.exe and the 119591 file from More Information , run them and reboot PC.


    Let me know after this.

  • Puneet Jain
    Puneet Jain Oct 21, 2008

    If you have the manual: OCS Inventory from this link.


    And if you had done upto step 6, let me know if any error occured at this stage?


    For configuration, if you have rebooted the PC and Start the FTP and if asked for file then Apache service restart.


    After this, you need to do:



    Test OCS Inventory NG Server
    In folder <>/<>, run ocsAgent.exe.
    This command creates a folder C:\ocs-ng where OCS Inventory NG agent is installed.
    Open a command prompt in this folder and run command :


    ocsinventory /server:127.0.0.1 /pnum:<> /debug


    Check in Administration console that your computer has been added in inventory.
    Setup is now finished and OCS Inventory NG Server may work without any problem.

Ensure that you do not need to download any patch for the software, ensure that you are installing the software as administrator.

Please provide more sppecific information on the software and system used.

Thanks.

  • A Womans Computer Man
    A Womans Computer Man Oct 20, 2008

    the only real option here is to tap into that resource is listed, which is on the OCS site. This is a much higher end application than usually shows up at fixya to tell you the truth.

  • A Womans Computer Man
    A Womans Computer Man Oct 20, 2008

    well..sometimes the truth is painful. this sort of open source implementation, in my experience, can be troublesome on a good day with all the information. i recommend you acquire the services of an IT expert through the services link on fixya..

  • A Womans Computer Man
    A Womans Computer Man Oct 20, 2008

    well..frankly, that link is on the front page, on the middle right.

    and since i just saved you a ton of problems that would be self induced, there is value in knowing what NOT to do, sometimes.

    thank you for using fixya to rate my support today..

Cant play games need direct3d device 8


Actually you probably need DirectX 8.1 runtime. Is it an XP machine. Look for the June 2010 version, as I recall. It will work on Server 2003 as well. Win 7/8 should have it installed by default.

I cant seem to install this dvd x copy xpress program, says server sent an invalid response when i type in license number and password after i select internet and hit continue.


321 Studios first released DVD X Copy in 2003 and the company was taken to court by several major studios and in February was ruled illegal by a judge. Subsequently, 321 Studios closed down and all their DVD copying software was taken off the shelves (although some retailers continued selling the remaing inventory) leaving people (who has license copy of the software) in frustrations because they can not activate and use the software. There is no way you can activate the software now because their website no longer exist.

You may try phone activation and use the following codes:

I recently upgraded a server from server 2000 to server 2003.


I presume you did not do a full system backup of your Server 2000 system/boot drive before upgrading to Server 2003? If you did, just restore your Server 2000 backup. If not, then backup all your application data files and re-install Sever 2000 as if it was a new install. Then re-install your application and restore the data files.

Another possibility is to check with your application vendor and see if they have a version that works with Server 2003.

Want to program symbols p470 scanner to work with my existing program


I have a small inventory company. We do inventory in corner stores such as 7-11s. I decided that we would like to try scanning products. At present we use calculators. I have a program that my son-in-law made me. We use it in windows 2000. The company we work for really likes the way our program prints out there information, so I would like to program the scanner to print out information the same as our program. Do you think this is possible?

My son-in -law doesn't like me enough to help me out. I can't pay him like the government does for his job.

I know how to program applications for Symbol Scanners but... in your message above..
this is what you wanted??

I would like to program the scanner to print out information the same as our program

Can you post a screenshot of the PRINTOUT you wanted?

What?
I am not sure just what it is that you want.
If you really want help, it might behoove you to further explain what it is that you are interested in.
Do you expect us to spend our valuable time (for free I might add, we do not get paid for this type of service) writing an entire dissertation on a subject, and have no idea if we are even CLOSE to what you are wanting?
