Synchronization between servers

I want to synchronize two servers, but I dont know how to generate ocs file, needed for doing that.

I do all like in manual, http://wiki.ocsinventory-ng.org/index.php?title=Documentation:Synchoserv.

If I switch Generate_OCS_FILE to On, should it genearate automatically or  I need manually generate it with some script.

I use the latest version of server 2.2.1 for Unix.

Thanks in advance!

You have to generate manually or via crontab the inventory of the slave and then inject it in the master.

Thanks Frank,

Could you tell me more how to generate inventory ocs file on the slave?

With which script I can do this?

With ocsinventory-injector.pl I can inject ocs to master, I understand that.

  • windows slave => use /local option to set the directory where you want store the .ocs file. The command will be this : ocsinventory-agent.exe /local c:\temp 
  • unix like slave => use --local option. The command will be this : ocsinventory-agent --local /tmp
