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][SIZE=12px]tasks.advanced.include.php [/SIZE][/I][SIZE=12px]file through, so i just posted it in the Host part of the file, instead of the “else” part, so i[/SIZE]t 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?



  • [quote=“timcough, post: 11711, member: 40”]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![/quote]
    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.
