The TAG update how does it work?


The TAG update how does it work?

I set this on the server: OCS_OPT_ACCEPT_TAG_UPDATE_FROM_CLIENT = 1

I have a workstation. I install an agent with TAG: OLD. The 'OLD' TAG is displayed on the web interface.

I am uninstalling the existing agent. I am installing another one. Its  TAG: NEW. The TAG is not updated on the web interface. I tried to force. I deleted the machine from the database. Unfortunately, the old tag reappeared.

I also experienced this on server v2.7. Step by step:

- install new machine, for example TAG: cat

- I will reboot after installation

- OCS Inventory web dashboard displays TAG: cat

- I am uninstall OCS agent and I am install new OCS agent with new TAG: dog

- admininfo.conf contains the TAG well (dog).

- reboot machine

- The old TAG is still visible on the console. The admininfo.conf has been rewritten to the old TAG (cat). Why???

- If I rewrite it after that, it will be rewritten everywhere.

Please help me!

J'ai le même problème :

- Suppression de l'ordinateur "A" comportant le TAG "X" de l'inventaire OCS
- Désinstallation du Client OCS (+ purge des dossier dans Program Files et Progam Data)
- Réinstallation du client OCS sur l'ordinateur "A" en avec le TAG "Y"
- L'ordinateur "A" remonte dans l'inventaire avec le TAG "X" (ancien tag)

Savez-vous où est stocké le TAG sur les ordinateurs clients ?

Client OCS Inventory 2.4

Le fichier z-ocsinventory-server.conf est configuré avec les valeurs ci-dessous  :

Is this issue resolved or is there any solution? I have the same issue. The tag is apparently being saved in ocsinv.adm file. But if I install agent again the ocsinv.adm file automatically gets populated, why is that and how can we stop that? The OCS_OPT_ACCEPT_TAG_UPDATE_FROM_CLIENT flag is set to 1. The tag in configuration file is ignored by the agent if the device already exists on ocsinventory server.

Facing the same issue. Tag is not updating even after the re-installation. Is there any workaround?
