OcsInventory-ng Windows Agent[edit]

Silent install for OcsInventory-ng Agent for Windows.

 OcsInventory is an application that automatically inventories computer systems, 
 reporting back to a central web-based interface. Agents are available for 
 Microsoft Windows 95/98/Me/NT4/2000/XP/2003, Linux, *BSD, Mac OS X, Sun Solaris 
 and IBM AIX.

[2.x series] Using the standard installer[edit]

Note that this package requires wpkg version >= 1.2. Also, OCS-NG changed its version numbering from 1.x to 2.x, so this actually has a lower version number than the last 1.x series - so this script will not update a 1.x installation as is.

In addition to the basic installation, this package also copies a file "cacert.pem" to the program's data directory - this should contain the server's SSL cert, along with the root CA's SSL cert and any intermediate SSL certs (if applicable). This script detects the Windows version and places the file in the appropriate directory, but only Windows XP (32-bit) and Windows 7 are supported. To add more OSes, see Extended_host_attribute_matching.

Also note that this specifies HTTPS, not HTTP for the server's URL.

Be sure to adjust the check version depending on the version you install, and substitute your OCS server for your.server.here.
