This forum is used to centralized feature requests and ideas for Fusioninventory, an opensource inventory and software deployment tool.
SSD provide a way to collect a evaluation of wear. Collecting this data might be useful to monitor SSD in servers and handle their replacement in time.
See this post talking about it
Is there any possibility for snmp inventory on custom ports (and of these cloud solutions like meraki?).
Example Data: Host: snmp.meraki.com, Port: 16100,
Can be tested free.
Thanks a lot,
It would be very useful when agent could take OS kind and IP of a VM.
Based on information from an agent plugin should add visibly relation between VM and a Host - now there's possible to see only VMs runing on specific host, not particular Host name in properties of VM created in GLPI as a Computer.
I have built out of GLPI, FusionInventory, CustomFields, Microsoft MDT (Deployment tool) and a home made database synchronisation tool something that is close to SCCM at very low cost.
I plan to release it as soon as it is clean enough to be shared.
Basically, I use the data from GLPI to feed the MDT database. This enable automatic OS deployment just pressing "F12" at boot (PXE boot to MDT). Our technicians just choose the OS version, the machine name, the additional applications (MS office, OpenOffice....) in GLPI and that's it.
In order to manager hardware specificities, I rely
on the computer model to set some defaults, model based values.
This used to work fine until the latest update 2.3.21 which introducd commercial names instead of technical codes. A lot of machines where identified with a technical code for the model rather than a commercial name. This code is what MDT relies on to identify a model (plus, several models with slightly different hardware may often the same commercial name). The output on screen is much nicer (20C600JJFR is now ThinkPad Edge E540) but MDT is broken.
Therefore my suggestion is:
- Have GLPI manage both the commercial name and the technical code for computer models.
- Add one column to the glpi_computermodels table for code. Make this column indexed unique while names can be non unique. I hear there is a "product number field" in preparation in GLPI 9.2, maybe this is the right place.
- Show both code and name on computer description page.
- Adapt Fusion Inventory import code to store both informations.
Indeed, there will be an issue when two different versions of FI will report a different name for the same code. I guess the rule should be:
- If code and name reported are the same and conflict with an existing model where they differ, keep the one that differs as this is probably more up to date.
- If code and name reported are different, then update table. Last to talk wins!
In the mean time I would love to get an additional setting in the plugin which would let me choose wich code (MMODEL or SMODEL) I want to store in GLPI. Indeed this is open source software so I will probably do a dirty patch on the code to fix my problem, but I'd rather have a proper and maintained solution.
Thanks in advance.
It would be very usefull to retrieve also MS Office (or other installed software) licence information (key) during the inventory. These data will be helpfull in the GLPI Licence management module.
Retrieve the status of a firewall on a computer
Hello, it would be great if we can select the softwares we want to import and control, just to make easy to see then in glpi. I don't want to know that my employee have visual studio in his machine, but it would be great to know if he have PDMS or an Autodesk Software. Yes, i know i can just filter then every time, but if i can just import the softwares that match a criteria, i would love it.
Hi, I have created a shell script in order to facilitate the installation of FusionInventory agent in Debian based Linux distributions. I hope it can be useful for someone.
Add support for ONVIF protocol to discover and inventory network cameras, DVR, and other ONVIF device complaint.
Using ONVIF scan via discovery or ip scan, you can have all camera data formatted in a standard protocol (Make and model, mac address, streaming data, etc).
Any MSI package available for Fusioninventory?
Hi Martin L.,
I started to work on this some time ago, but we need some sponsoring here to really focus ;-)
I need my fusion inventory script to add computers automatically to Locations I created in glpi web portal. Where do i start the code.
I would add the possibility of generating tickets automatically when detecting changes in the HW or for example a hard disk over 90%.
That would be great.
is it possible to use Fusiononventory 2.5 with older GLPI? For example Version 9.2.4?
Fusioninventory agent just needs a working FusionInventory plugin for GLPI. So you just have to check the plugin compatibility, not the agent one.
