Change OS name and version

Is it possible to change the name and version of the operating system in the agent?

I use the Porteus Kiosk distribution and in the system information I have:
OS Name: Linux
OS Version: 6.1.20-kiosk

And I would like the correct system version to appear in the inventory:
OS Name: Porteus Kiosk
OS Version: 5.5.0

How is this information extracted from the system? Maybe it would be possible to change it with a command alias, script, etc.?

We have the old 2.3 agent due to dependencies in new versions and problems with creating xzm packages. Maybe someone has created such a package (with dependent packages) in a newer version?

You could run a crontab task like this:

mysql -D ocsweb -s -e "UPDATE hardware h SET h.osname = 'Porteus Kiosk', h.osversion = '5.5.0' WHERE h.osname = 'Linux' AND h.OSVERSION = '6.1.20-kiosk'"


[root@localhost ~]# more .my.cnf
user = root
password = xxxxxxxx
host = localhost
