Opsi Newbie Stuck

Beitragvon spar1grep » 23 Mär 2018, 16:35

I am new to Opsi having used Altiris for many years, I have managed to build the server, setup the environment and I am now looking into creating a Windows 10 build, following the instructions in the user guide I am stuck on performing a hardware inventory. I have added the new client to Opsi and booted using the PXE boot image and got to the stage where I now select hwinvent (which is pre-selected I guess because of the requested action within the client Netboot product configuration). However every time I try this I get the error /mnt/opsi/hwinvent/hwinvent.py'. I have performed a search within the OS console and the hwinvent.py file exists at /var/lib/opsi/depot/hwinvent/hwinvent.py. I am guessing it is to do with Samba somehow, but I cannot see anything on the client that will allow me to identify the reason why the client is not finding the file (nb I have also ran opsi-product-update -i --vv and also opsi-setup --set-rights but with no success).

Pls, post a screenshot of this stage. (Sounds strange....)

When it fails, you are presented with a login prompt. Login with root/linux123. And check /tmp/log (log is a file, not a directory)
Post the log here.

can you give us some more information about your server, please?
What distro are you using? Could selinux be the source of this problem?

Kind regards
