Multi-PC single snapin deploy



  • You can deploy a snapin to a single machine, or you can deploy all snapins to a bunch of machines… but what I cant seem to do is deploy a new snapin I create to a whole room of PCs at once without either manually setting them one machine at a time, or deploying all snapins, then going into the active snapins and cancelling all the ones I dont want.

    Would be nice to select a group and single snapin deploy to the group in one hit.

    Thanks



  • Sorry! I forgot to mention that it belongs in the groups section of the file. Glad to see y’all got it working in the end.



  • ok, finally got around to doing this… Brilliant… thanks a lot… works a treat.



  • I’m going to try this out tomorrow, its a bit late in the day now to start getting into it so I’ll let you know how I get on. Thanks.



  • Seems it was totally my own fault.

    I did not read the entire [I]tasks.advanced.include.php [/I]file through, so i just posted it in the Host part of the file, instead of the “else” part, so it ended up being on the Host page.

    After just moving it down in the file to the next part, it made a lot more sense :)

    Thanks a lot for the help!

    I’m not sure what you mean Jon. I have added this code to my system, and if I pick a group, go to advanced tasks, and select “Deploy a Single Snap-in” the task confirmation screen shows all the hosts in the list at the bottom. Is this not what you are needing?

    Add the following lines to tasks.advanced.include.php:

    [PHP]<tr>
    <td class=“c”><a href="?node=tasks&type=group&direction=onesnap&noconfirm=<?php print $groupid; ?>"><img src="./images/snap.png" /><p><?php print _(‘Deploy Single Snapin’); ?></p></a></td>
    <td><p><?php print _(‘This option allows you to send one of the snapins to the group without imaging the computers. (Requires FOG Service to be installed on client)’); ?></p></td>
    </tr>[/PHP]

    Hope this helps!
    That seem to work!
    Wonderfull :)

    It does however only add the button if you look up a single computer, and not the group itself.
    I am unable to find a group.advanced.include.php, could you point me in the right direction?

    And thanks a bunch Timcough, thats gonne save me a lot of time :)

  • I have this exact same problem.

    I have almost a hundred computers of different kinds on my network.
    I also push a lot of different snapins.
    Its fine for stuff like giving a computer Adobe Photoshop.
    But if i want to update java on all computers, i really need a push single snapin to groups.
    Doing it manually is almost more painfull that doing it by hand :)

    Otherwise, great work.
    Apart from maybe a dependability function, and push - the system works great.
