OCS and Remote DB; issue with the Agent

Good morning everybody,

I have been trying to set up an OCS administrative server based on Linux that share a MySql instance on another machine. I have modyfied the conf file (ocsinventory.conf.local) to let it see a DB on the remote Database Server, but it is stille pointing on the local database.

Perhaps there is something that I am missing or probably is not possible to use a remote database. Did someone test the application with a remote database?

In each case, I've used a local database and now I am experiencing issue with the Agent... is not communicating with the management server. I have fixed some error message but I am still retrieving this kind of erroron the PC:

I thought that installation was not good and for testing purposes I have also tried the vappliance, but I am retrieving the same error.

The agent version is 2.1.1, the management serve installed has the same versioning and the vappliance, instead, is 2.05. Do you have any suggestion?

Thank you in advance for your help.

How have you generated your certificate?

thank you. At the moment I have uninstalled the machine and I am testing with the virtual appliance. I have installed the certificate as described here (http://wiki.ocsinventory-ng.org/index.php/Howtos:VMOcsinventory-ng):

Générating SSL certificate

By default, the cacert.pem SSL certificate included in the virtual machine has expired. You must generate a new one.

To do this, in a terminal, type :

cd /ocs

Answer the questions asked while retaining ocsinventory-ng Common Name.

Once back at the prompt, restart Apache:

service apache2 restart

The certificate is automatically used by Apache and is available from a client under the address : \\ocsinventory-ng\ocs$.

During the testing phase I had no issues... At the moment I am trying to install it again with a CentOs 7.0. To verify if something went wrong during the packages installation.
