Automated Agent Refresh

I had an issue in the past where many of my workstations were not checking in and updating their status for long periods of time.

Samanage gave me:

 

"c:\program files (x86)\samanage\ocsinventory" /force /debug /server=https://inventory.samanage.com/ocsinventory /tag=(Account name)

 

Which I could put into AD GP to create a login script that would automate the check in procedure.

 

Now that we are upgrading to the newest agent, I can see that this will need to change.

 

Samanage gave me:

 

  1. cd "c:\Program Files\Samanage Agent\agent"
  2. ruby\bin\ruby.exe src\mini_kernel\cmd.rb -f

 

which when ran, produces:

c:/Program Files (x86)/Samanage Agent/agent/src/packages/windows/data_collectors/video.rb:40: warning: already initialized constant Windows::DataCollectors::Video::MAX_SIGNED

c:/Program Files (x86)/Samanage Agent/agent/src/packages/windows/data_collectors/video.rb:40: warning: previous definition of MAX_SIGNED was here

c:/Program Files (x86)/Samanage Agent/agent/src/packages/windows/data_collectors/memory.rb:155: warning: already initialized constant Windows::DataCollectors::Memory::MAX_MEMORY_DEVICES

c:/Program Files (x86)/Samanage Agent/agent/src/packages/windows/data_collectors/memory.rb:155: warning: previous definition of MAX_MEMORY_DEVICES was here

 

My concern is I'm not sure if this actually updated the Test PC. When I ran it, the PC in question did not show an update in the help desk interface.

 

Just looking for a correct way to force an agent update and if this is correct.

 

Thanks!
