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.

    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.

    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..

Go the website of HP, chose for the support and drivers - lookout for drivers and software - enter your product name i.e HP Proliant ML350 5G Server and click on search.
You will get the list, select your product. Select the operating system you are using on your server - then choose the driver type - click suitable, from the list of drivers and download it.

How do i install windows 2003 standard, to my new Acer AT110 F2? on Acer smart cd there's no option for 2003 server :(


I just checked the specs and it supports Windows Server 2003 so it must be possible. They probably did not make a setup wizard for it so you will have to do it the "old fashioned" way. Load the Windows Server 2003 disk in the CD/DVD drive and boot to it as you would any Windows install. If it reaches the screen where it displays the hard disk(s) you are good to go. While the installation is running go to Acer's website on another computer and download the 2003 drivers to a USB drive. When the installation completes, install the 2003 drivers and you are ready to customize it to your needs.
If it doesn't find the hard disks, you probably purchased the optional PCIe 4-port SAS RAID card and Windows 2003 doesn't have a built-in driver for it. You will need to press F6 after Windows install starts so it will prompt you later for a driver for your disk controller. This will allow you to manually install the driver which you should be able to find on Acer's website. (F6 Info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/F6_disk)
I hope this helps!

I am usind Branded Dell Precision 690 Desktop Machine, i have already windows xp installed in it, but i want to install windows 2003 Server in it, but its creating a lots of issues to me to install server...


Before installing a Windoze server (no matter what flavour) you always need to verify the compatibility (drivers) with the machine's hardware... A Windoze XP driver will rarely work for a server environment... Micro$oft built all servers version to run in server machine type... further more you also need to verify softwar compatibility as well... as not all workstation software is compatible with server environments... and your machine advertises that it is a WORKSTATION NOT A SERVER...

I purchased compaq cq40-108tu want to install windows 2003


I am not very sure, why you are assuming to install windows 2003 because windows 2003 is server and i really dont recomment to install it in Laptop.
and you have not mentioned what driver you want to install on it. usually, sound driver does not come along with this OS becasue it's for server purpose not for clint so.
and if you any want to install this driver you can download from your manufacturer website.
and if you have recovery disk you can install from there manually too.
thanks

Video driver for windows 2003 server


Hi,

i could only locate Vista and XP drivers but the dell website has a comprehensive list of all the drivers available , i'm thinking that the XP drivers should work

heres the link , so look there and download and install them one by one until it works, thats how i would go about it , pretty standard but unfortunately they don't make Server 2003 Specific Drivers , also try updating using Windows Update and see if that works.

Goodluck

New to exchange server 2003


Hello there!
First things First!
1) you always going to have problems with exchange servers, or migrations. ** systems are not perfects**
2) You can migrate the emails to the new server, but, if only are in the correct version of Exchange 2003.
3) if backup is damage or fail, you lost everything.
4) try to reinstall the Server, and all utilites, is better, I know takes more time, but is better because you created yourself.
I suggest you to install from scratch!
Good luck

Microsoft Exchange server


I think you mean email *facilities* although your version may be more accurate :-)))

You can't just download it - you have to buy it. If you want it for a relatively small organisation it is much cheaper to buy SBS 2003 which includes both Server 2003 and Exchange as well as other useful things. It's also relatively straightforward to install & get working although I highly recommend reading one of the many guide books that are available first.

If you really need to install them separately and have not set Exchange up before (or been on a course on how to do it) you are likely to have serious problems getting it working. It's complex, requires quite a bit of specialist knowledge and there are many pitfalls.

Sorry I can't be more helpful :{
