Inventory of computers on the network without getting up from the chair or OCS Inventory + GLPI

Good day to all!

As can be seen from the title, two programs will be discussed:
1. Open Computers and Software Inventory
OCS-Inventory is based on distributed modules installed on inventory machines that send detailed system information, connected devices and installed software to a dedicated database.
The following OS are supported: Microsoft Windows, Linux, * BSD, Sun Solaris, IBM AIX, HP-UX, MacOS X

2. GPLI - Guestion Libre de Parc Informatique
The project is designed to work with the IT database and telecommunications equipment installed in the enterprise. It is also possible to keep records of consumables and organize technical support services on a schedule and at the request of users.

On the Internet, there is a lot of information about how to configure this bundle, but I have not met a single detailed how to, where all the issues with localization would be resolved. Therefore, I will present a compilation of the solutions found and my own modifications.

So, let's begin!

Installing OCS Inventory.
OCS Version: Ver. 1.3.2
As a server OS for data collection, I will be running FreeBSD OS. I will not describe the installation and configuration of LAMP (in this case FAMP =)). We will proceed from the fact that you have already set it up.
Before you start installing and configuring OCS Inventory, check whether the following ports are installed

The apache config should have the string
LoadModule perl_module libexec/apache22/mod_perl.so
Check if the following perl modules are installed
Apache::DBI -- 1.08
BSD::Resource -- 1.2904
Bundle::NetSNMP -- ???
Class::Inspector -- 1.24
Compress::Raw::Bzip2 -- 2.030
Compress::Raw::Zlib -- 2.030
DBD::mysql -- 4.017
DBI -- 1.613
Digest::SHA1 -- 2.13
ExtUtils::MakeMaker -- undef
HTML::Parser -- 3.68
HTML::Tagset -- 3.20
IO::Compress -- ???
LWP -- 5.836
Locale::gettext -- 1.05
Net::IP -- 1.25
Perl -- 5.8.9
SOAP::Lite -- 0.712
Storable -- 2.21
Task::Weaken -- 1.03
URI -- 1.55
XML::Entities -- 1.0000
XML::Parser -- 2.36
XML::Simple -- 2.18
mod_perl2 -- 2.000004

to do this, just run this script
use ExtUtils::Installed;
my $instmod = ExtUtils::Installed->new();
foreach my $module ($instmod->modules()) {
my $version = $instmod->version($module) || "???";
print "$module -- $version\n";

If you have something from the above list, then install the command
#cpan -e ModulName

1. Download the patched server

OCSNG to UTF8 . Thanks to a certain linvinus!
The author of the patch did everything for us, we just need to fix a small defect. Open the archive, find the file /ocsinventory-server-1.3.2/ocsreports/languages/russian.txt, change windows-1251 to utf8 in the first line and save it in UTF8 encoding. Tarbol with the corrected russian.txt can be taken here.
2. Unpacking the archive to a folder on the server (I have this / usr / local / www / ocs /).

#tar -xf OCSNG_UNIX_SERVER-1.3.2-linvinus-with-utf8_patch.tar.gz

3. Create a directory for logrotate

#mkdir /etc/logrotate.d

4. Change the owner of the folder

# chown -R www:www /usr/local/www/ocs/

5. Next, go to the folder and run setup.sh

#sh setup.sh

Enjoy OCS Inventory NG ;-)

6. Create a virtualhost file

#ee /usr/local/etc/apache22/Includes/ocs.conf
<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerAdmin webmaster@domen.ru
DocumentRoot /usr/local/www/ocs/ocsreports
ServerName ocs.domen.ru
ServerAlias www.ocs.domen.ru
ErrorLog "|/usr/local/sbin/rotatelogs /var/log/httpd/http.ocs.domen.ru-error_log.%Y-%m-%d-%H_%M_%S 86400"
CustomLog "|/usr/local/sbin/rotatelogs /var/log/httpd/http.ocs.domen.ru-access_log.%Y-%m-%d-%H_%M_%S 86400" common

<Directory />
Order deny,allow
Allow from
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
DirectoryIndex index.php
AllowOverride Options
php_flag file_uploads on

7. Connect to mysql and create a user with the necessary permissions.

# mysql -u root -p
Enter password:
Welcome to the MySQL monitor. Commands end with ; or \g.
Your MySQL connection id is 3495
Server version: 5.1.41 FreeBSD port: mysql-server-5.1.41

Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the current input statement.

mysql> GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON ocsweb.* TO 'ocs'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'ocs';

8. We are almost there, open our favorite firefox browser and enter

http: // ip_address / ocsreports
In the line "Nombre del servidor" enter localhost

click "Send request"
Click on the link

We select the flag of our Motherland and enter admin / admin


9. We check the performance of our OCSNG server

In order for us to come to the server with reports on hardware stuffing of computers and installed software, it is necessary to install an agent on the computers of our network. To do this, go to ftp linvinus again and download the patched agent .
On the server we execute the command
tail -F /var/log/httpd/http.ocs.domen.ru-error_log.2010-09-14-00_00_00
and proceed to install the agent. During the installation process we will be asked to specify the server for data collection.
do not forget to put a tick in the screenshot, so that after installation the agent sends information to the server
If in the log we see a swearing like this
[Tue Sep 14 19:16:34 2010] [error] [client] Can't call method "rollback" on an undefined value at /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.9/Apache/Ocsinventory/Server/System.pm line 265.\n
it is necessary to check the correctness of the connection settings to mysql in the file
and in
If everything is in order, then a new entry will appear in the OCS web interface, something like the screenshot =)

10. The final touch is to deploy the agent in the network using Active Directory.

On the OCS wiki, there is a script that needs only a minor fix, in accordance with the realities of your network.
@echo off

REM *********** Declare variables *********************************************
REM *********** Adjust to your situation **************************************
SET Version=4061.1
SET Server=ocs.domen.ru
SET SetupPath=\\dc\shareUstPril

REM *********** Install if agent isn't found **********************************
IF EXIST "%PROGRAMFILES%\OCS Inventory agent\OCSInventory.exe" GOTO update
%SetupPath%\OcsAgentSetup.exe /S /SERVER:%Server% /NP /DEBUG
GOTO version

REM *********** Update agent if %Version%.txt isn't found *********************
IF EXIST "%PROGRAMFILES%\OCS Inventory agent\%Version%.txt" GOTO end
%SetupPath%\OcsAgentSetup.exe /S /SERVER:%Server% /NP /UPGRADE /DEBUG

cd /D "%PROGRAMFILES%\OCS Inventory agent\"
echo pwouet > %Version%.txt

REM *********** Cleanup variables *********************************************
SET Version=
SET Server=
SET SetupPath=

Save as install_ocs_agent.bat and configure the GPO accordingly.
On this with OCS finish. It is worth noting that the data from the agents come with a random delay, so after the end of the setup it will take quite a long time before you receive data from all computers.

Installing GLPI.
GLPI Version: glpi-0.72.4_1
1. Install GLPI from ports.

make -c /usr/ports/www/glpi install clean
After that we create an alias or virtualhost (as you like) in the Apache. I have this alias
Alias /glpi "/usr/local/www/glpi"
<Directory "/usr/local/www/glpi">
Options Indexes FollowSymlinks MultiViews
AllowOverride None
Order allow,deny
Allow from

* For some reason, the closing "/ Directory" was not displayed, so if copy-paste be careful =)

2. Create a user in mysql with the necessary rights

mysql> grant all privileges on glpi.* to 'glpi'@'localhost' identified by 'password_ololo';

3. Go to http: // domen.ru/glpi and follow the steps of the installation wizard


3. Let's a little fix GLPI sources

Rule file
Find a class
class DBocs extends DBmysql
and change the string

4. Install the plugin to import from OCS

OCS Import

The plugin needs to be unpacked into a folder.

Then go to the web interface GLPI
# Main panel>
# Settings>
# Additions
Click "Install", then "Enable"

Next, go to
# Main panel>
# Settings>
# Are common
# Limitations
“Activate OCSNG mode” - Yes

# Main panel>
# Settings>
# OCSNG mode
Set options

# Main panel>
# Toolkit>
# Importing new computers
We do import and voila =)

And finally, export to pdf in Russian

1. Replace all utf8_decode calls with utf8_decode_cyr
#sed -e 's/utf8_decode/utf8_decode_cyr/g' /usr/local/www/glpi/inc/export.function.php > /usr/local/www/glpi/inc/export.function.php.new
#mv /usr/local/www/glpi/inc/export.function.php.new /usr/local/www/glpi/inc/export.function.php

2. Add a function to /var/www/glpi/inc/export.function.php
function utf8_decode_cyr($value){
return iconv("UTF-8","Windows-1251",$value);

3. Downloading a set of fonts by reference

4. Add files from the archive to / usr / local / www / glpi / lib / ezpdf / fonts /
Now pdf is exported as it should.

Fuuuuhhhh ... done!
All, the OCS + GLPI bundle is installed and configured.
It only remains for me to thank for the help and support of Comrade Pascal from the forum of UNIX system administrators and to list the sources of information used =)

1. www.tux.in.ua/articles/1500
2. forums.ocsinventory-ng.org/viewtopic.php?id=4104

GLPI has a lot of interesting features, but they do not fall into the scope of this note.
If someone has troubles with the installation - I wait in the kamentah than I can, as they say.
