Version 3

    QUESTION:

     

    How to include setting, file with all agents

     

     

    ANSWER:

     

    The NTSTACFG.IN# can be used for this purpose.

    The NTSTACFG.INI corresponds to the default agent configuration.

     

     

    STEPS to implement this changes:

    #1

    From the core server Browse to LDLogon in the path:

    C:\Program Files\LANDesk\ManagementSuite\ldlogon

     

    #2

    Locate the file NTSTACFG.IN#

    And modify the following file which affects all agents:

    C:\Program Files\LANDesk\ManagementSuite\ldlogon\ntstacfg.in#

     

    #3

    On the core server run the stamper.exe to apply the changes from NTSTACFG.IN# to NTSTACFG.INI

    C:\Program Files\LANDesk\ManagementSuite\stamper.exe

    OR

    Restart the Inventory Server service (it will initiate the stamper.exe at restart)

     

    #4

    Check that your changes have been apply by navigating to:

    C:\Program Files\LANDesk\ManagementSuite\ldlogon

     

    #5

    Open the NTSTACFG.ini that should reflect those changes.

     

    #6

    From now all new Agent Configuration will contain these changes.

     

    In order to apply this changes to all existing Agent configuration.

    Then open the console and go to Tools - Configuration -Agent Configuration

    And click on the Rebuild All in that section (that will update all existing agent configuration)

     

    #7

    Note that the file NTSTACFG.IN# contains 3 main sections that need to be updated:

                    [Products] -> refer to our new section (yes= enable / NO= Disable)

                    [Component Order] -> order to follow

                    [new section to create] -> to include new file to add with agent install for example
