No package download [closed]


I created a package and activated it. I try to deploy it to a single machine to test the package. But the machine doesn't donwlod the package for more then 24 hours now.

I raised the debug to "2", but nothing obvious in the logs:

Accoring to the GUI the client is notified, but no progress since then.

Deployed a package to another machine...same problem. Machine gets notified (according to the server) but there is no download, but also no error in the logs.

When I call the URL in the browser, the "info" is readable....

Ok, strange....

On the client I created a folder with the timestamp as name, downloaded the "info" file.

Now, the client tries to download the packages, but there is no host defined.

Log says:

COM SERVER => Sending fileGet request to URL <HTTP:///1650357266/1650357266-1>
    WARNING *** COM SERVER => Failed to send HTTP Get request <Couldn't resolve host name>
    COM SERVER => Cleaning cURL library
    WARNING *** DOWNLOAD =>  Max error count (5) reached while downloading package fragment <1650357266-1> (Couldn't resolve host name)

Where does the download agent get the hostname from? "info" looks normal, Inventory is transfered, so I think the ocsinventory.ini is ok.

DOWNLOAD_URI_FLAG and DOWNLOAD_URI_INFO are defined on the server.
