At first, prefer use DNS instead of IP address : that's better :)

You look like to have not configure the agent : if you put the server's address in the configuration file, there is no need to force the inventory by command line. You just need to call ocsinventory-agent and nothing more.

Attention, in the crontab, you have no path : use the full path to call ocsinventory-agent (command whereis to get it).

thanks for your reply.

In crontab i have use full path to call ocs agent and the dns but don't work.

My code for cron:

00 * * * * /usr/local/bin/ocsinventory-agent -s ocs.server.lan

With this code the hosts is register in ocs server but the ip and the ram not displayed.

If i launch the command by console the ip and the ram are displayed.

Help me please.

Post ocsinventory-agent.log file content. I want to be sure that all prerequisites modules are installed.
