Linux agent issue

I'm having a weird issue with my linux agents. I upgraded from 2.1.14 to 2.3.0 and now they are not linking to the computers in GLPI. They show up in the Fusion Inventory plugin but oddly in the search list, they just show a * and version is blank... Strangely, they also are not triggering a new computer object in GLPI. I’m using FusionInventory for GLPI 0.84+2.1 and GLPI 0.84.5

 

Any ideas what’s going on?

how to net discovery, net inventory

Hi,

I've spent the day on this and am getting nowhere. I've read the forum,
the docs, watched some youtube videos (though not of sufficient quality
for me to follow what was being shown) and am stuck. I feel like I am
missing something really basic since I am having such difficulty.

I am using GLPI 0.84.5 and fusioninventory-for-glpi_0.84+2.2.tar.gz in a
debian wheezy environment. 

My questions,

1) Are their simple, clear instructions for network discovery and
network inventory?
2) Where are the logs? Administration->logs only shows that nothing is
running. What if something runs? Where are those logs?

Looks like a great tool. I hope I can use it.

Cheers,
V

S/N mismatch: HP laserjet printers...


I think i've hit another S/N (mis)interpretation/mismatch in FI, but
this time hit USB printers and not monitors.

I'm using the last version, on windows, and i got, for example:

 Printer: HP LaserJet Professional P1102
 S/N printed on printer label: VNC4N51108
 S/N catched by FI: 000000000Q80HNBLPR1a

 Printer: HP LaserJet Professional P1102w
 S/N printed on printer label: VNC4J71069
 S/N catched by FI: 000000000Q91MZPPPR1a

Say me if more data are needed. Thanks.

Hi, Kevin
 
Let me see if I understood it correctly...
 
This line: Win32::OLE->Initialize()  should be added before Users.pm (line 68), right?
 
Well, we have to solve this error before understanding what's really happening with the software list.

With a little google search, i found a KB from microsoft
(http://support.microsoft.com/KB/171724) which states that OLE must be
initialized before getting an object and the Win32::OLE->Initialize()
must be used.

From a quick look at Win32/Users.pm, this initialization doesn't seem
to be performed therefore this should most probably explain your
issue.

Users.pm is in no way related to your software shortlist issue.

> Have you ever seen this?

I've never seen those errors but it is usually related to some Active
Directory setup if any.
Maybe your Active Directory is too old (or too recent ... i really
don't know ;-) )

You can file an issue in the fusioninventory-agent project at
http://forge.fusioninventory.org/projects/fusioninventory-agent.

Unexpected error in FusionInventory::Agent::Task::Inventory::Win32::Users: WMI connection failed

Hi, Fusion friends!
 
Now facing a new error in inventory (Windows 7 - 64 bits - agent 2.3.5):
[debug] unexpected error in FusionInventory::Agent::Task::Inventory::Win32::Users: WMI connection failed: Win32::OLE(0.1709) error 0x800401e4: "Invalid Syntax" after character 0 in "winmgmts:\\.\root\CIMV2" at ../agent/FusionInventory/Agent/Task/Inventory/Win32/Users.pm line 68.
 
In these cases, only a fraction of software installed is shown in GLPI gui.
But it seems to occur only in a few machines...
 
This is Users.pm, line 68:
my $WMIService = Win32::OLE->GetObject("winmgmts:\\\\.\\root\\CIMV2")
 
Have you ever seen this?
Any suggestion?
 
Thanks a lot!

Multiple instance fusioninventory agent with differents confs.

Hello FusionInventory users,

Is it possible on the same machine (Linux) to run multiple v2.3.x agent in daemon mode with different conf?

I tried to start it with 2 differents conf files (use of option --conf-file and edit parameters httpd-port
and logfile): the first is executed correctly but the latter refused to start with the following message
in these logs "An agent is already runnnig, exiting ...", as if the execution daemon prevented by
launching the same executable repeatedly mode.

If this is not possible, the solution is to recompile it from source packages with parameters (from the
Makefile.PL) different?

Thank you in advance for your reply :-)

Thank you in advance for your response,

Network inventory improvement: no mandatory SNMP model anymore

The FusionInventory network inventory task, which should be more 
precisely described as remote inventory through SNMP, has always been 
plagued by a critical limitation: SNMP models. Such a model enumerates 
mappings between SNMP OIDs and inventory variables, such as 'the 
location is available at OID .1.3.6.1.2.1.1.1.6.0', and was mandatory 
because there was no intelligence in the agent itself, making it unable 
to perform anything without this information. In order to inventory any 
kind of device, the relevant model had to be defined first and assigned 
to this device second, which was a problem in itself, as device 
identification was based on exact matching of SNMP SysDescr string 
only... (See [[Network discovery 
improvements]/news/2013/11/08/network_discovery_improvements]] for details).

Since the agent 2.3.4 release, we introduced simple but radical changes, 
using default hardcoded OIDs for most variables, and minimum 
intelligence for determining what to extract from the context. The agent 
is now able to retrieve almost every interesting information from any 
device out of the box, which is a huge improvement of the situation. 
Some specific pieces of information are still problematic:
-firmware version numbers seems way too much versatile to be 
automatically retrieved
- printers print counters seems also lack any kinf of standardisation
- printers consumable levels are easily extracted, but identifying them 
precisely is quite difficult

Network inventory without model was sofar only possible from 
command-line, through fusioninventory-netinventory executable, as the 
GLPI FusionInventory plugin didn't allowed to run an inventory task for 
devices without model. This constraint has been relaxed with 0.84+2.1 
release, and is now only enforced for agent whose version is less than 2.3.4

FusionInventory Agent 2.3.6 released!

Hello FusionInventory users,

The FusionInventory Agent maintainers are glad to announce the 2.3.6 
release.

You can download it from the usual places:
- the forge or CPAN for the source distribution
- the forge for the windows distribution
- etc...

See download instructions for details.

This release fixes multiple minor issues with network discovery and 
inventory, especially for SNNMPv3 users. It also introduces a more 
explicit error message when the agent is run without any task installed, 
as it often occurs when using packages with each task distributed 
separatly. See the Changes file for details.

We did our best to provide a solid release, please contact us if you 
believe you find something unexpected.

New SNMP Models

Hi there,

First of all, hi everybody, I am newby to fusioninventory.
I have already installed fusion plugin with glpi. Everything is working fine, and I have managed to snmp inventory some devices in my networks.

Problem is some SNMP capable devices which are not recognize (ie 3Com 4200 Switch), so I would need new SNMP model.

As I see in this doc:

http://forge.fusioninventory.org/projects/fusioninventory-for-glpi/wiki/En_VII_menus_a_SNMP_models_22x)

I should send snmpwalk to fusioninventory project for creating new model.

I have already done snmpwalk, but I would like to know, where should I send output file.

thanks in advance.

BR

Jorge
