Import ESX host into OCS

I have successfully used the fusion-ESX to create the OCS file for an ESX server.

Using the injector tool to import into OCS, the status is successful, but no host is created in OCS.

Anyone have this issue?
by (260 points)
Yes. You are using fusioninventory like me. The Fusioninventory-Injector output lacks a checksum

which is required within ocs. To fix this the locate FusionInventory/Agent/Task/ESX.pm, open it search for

sub createInventory, go down like 12 lines and paste this:


Close and run. This should fix it.
Im having some issues was wondering where you put you entry?

sub createInventory {
    my ( $self, $id, $tag ) = @_;

    die unless $self->{vpbs};

    my $vpbs = $self->{vpbs};

    my $host;
    $host = $vpbs->getHostFullInfo($id);

    my $inventory = FusionInventory::Agent::Inventory->new(
        logger => $self->{logger},
        tag    => $tag
    $inventory->{deviceid} = $self->createFakeDeviceid($host);

    $inventory->{isInitialised} = 1;
    $inventory->{h}{CONTENT}{HARDWARE}{ARCHNAME} = ['remote'];
