Redistribution Groups

Hi,
our infrastructure is OS Windows: we have installed on the same server Windows Server 2008 R2 all roles: OCS Inventory NG 2.1.1 ( Admin Console, Inventory, Communication and Deployment ) + Database MySql.
Now We would try to use 2 Servers (Win2008 R2) with the role "Distribution Point" -> for OCS "Redistribution Group".. we read the various explanations and post on the OCS Community, but we did not understand what we're doing wrong (the distribution from the "Main" Server OCS is OK).  

!! PROBLEM !! ON THE CLIENT WE DON'T SEE ANYTHING IN THE LOGS FILES, THERE IS NO TRACE OF ANY DOWNLOAD OF PACKAGE.. NO ERROR.. IT SEEMS THAT NOT RECOGNIZE THAT HAS BEEN ASSIGNED A PACKAGE.

Following the steps that we performed:
- Installed on the Servers  "Redistribution Group" xampp-win32-1-8-3-4-VC11 (the rel. 1.7.7 not working) and      created the folders "download" and "server" in the directory C:/Xampp/htdocs/... Apache Service is running.
- Installed OCS Agent on the Servers with the cacert.pem of the OCS Server.
- Created a script with Robocopy to copy the Packages from the OCS Server to Reditribution Servers
- Created a  "Redistribution Group" by Console -> My Group is 'RG_SRVDISTR'
- Created a "Rules of affectation":         1  IPSUBNET  =  @IP
- The settings options on the Console in the tab "CONFIG" are: 
    --------------------------------- 
    CONFIG - DEPLOYMENT
    ---------------------------------
    DOWNLOAD            ON
 
    DOWNLOAD_CYCLE_LATENCY        60 seconds

    DOWNLOAD_FRAG_LATENCY        10 seconds

    DOWNLOAD_GROUPS_TRACE_EVENTS    ON
 
    DOWNLOAD_PERIOD_LATENCY        1 seconds

    DOWNLOAD_TIMEOUT        30 days

    DOWNLOAD_PERIOD_LENGTH        10

    DEPLOY                ON
 
    DOWNLOAD_URI_FRAG        Customize:  HTTP//:161.27.53.231/download  (Ip Address of OCS Server)

    DOWNLOAD_URI_INFO        Customize:  HTTP//:161.27.53.231/download  (Ip Address of OCS Server)
 
    TELEDIFF_WK            OFF

    --------------------------------------------------    
     CONFIG - REDISTRIBUTION SERVERS
    --------------------------------------------------
    DOWNLOAD_REDISTRIB        ON
 
    DOWNLOAD_SERVER_URI         HTTP:// $IP$/download

    DOWNLOAD_SERVER_DOCROOT    d:\tele_ocs

    DOWNLOAD_REP_CREAT        default:  (C:/Xampp/htdocs/download/server)

- Activated a package -> "Mode Automatically" -> the package is available on Redistribution Servers

Hi,

I think that this functionallity is not supported anymore. Team will say you to use Proxy, it's easier, better, faster, stronger (god Thanks Daft Punk ! )

Perhaps you should have a look here

Have a nice day :)
