Im still pretty new to epolicy, so im looking for some help.
I manage 6 different networks (all with epolicy 4.6) and 3 are secured networks without internet. all 3 of them are interconnected, and the main hub provides "dat updates"
The file they provide is avvepo7xxxdat.zip, which contains 45~ files, .gem, avvdat-7xxx.zip, mcs files, etc. I can take this file, and manually click the check in pacakge button, no problems.
What i am looking for is a way to script the check in package function.
I currently have a script that downloads the .zip file thats provided fia FTP for me, so all i have to do i check it in, but i'de like to not have to do that step.
the 'Main' site i manage, i have a HTTP Distributed Repositorie that my other 2 sites pull from with no problem, but i would like my main site to be automated as well.
Any help with automating the check in package process would be a great help.
Why dont you do easy way imean builtin Master Repository Pull task, It fetches all updates and will roll out to your other distributed rep as well, you can also schedule it. Manue>Software>Master Repository> Pull or schedule Pull.
Or you only prefer scripting?
I wish i could do it that way. However since these networks do not have internet i can't use the default sites.
I've also looked into creating a new pull site, but unfortinutely the pull location is not a "site", and dosn't provide the site.z file.
Since i am limited to only being provided with that zip file i mentioned, i can only check it in manually, and would like to see if i could automate it with a script.
Can the secured networks see the unsecured networks? If so it's possible to configure the ePO servers in the secureed networks to use a repository in the unsecured networks as a source site to pull from...
my question is: assuming you have the automated check-in function, how would you make the file available for checking in to ePO on the "Main" site (in one of the secured networks) ?
the file is provided to us via HTTP or FTP, i created a script that uses ftp to automaticly download the file from the home base to my secure site.
i can;'t use the ftp site as a source site either, since it only contains the one zip file.
If it's provided by FTP, would it be possible to instead provide the entire contents via FTP - i.e. an FTP distributed repository - which you could then transfer across via script?
