In the past few weeks, I started working with NMIS. The application does a great job monitoring all sorts of devices. I decided to use the free version, so support is mainly based on whatever is found on the web or from NMIS’ email group.
- A working NMIS environment
- I downloaded the NMIS appliance and got the application to work in an hour.
- A working installation of a mail daemon in the linux box where NMIS is running
- For my environment I used sendmail, so most of these steps are related to sendmail.
- A working installation of Exchange server
- Logon to the linux server where NMIS is running from
- Go to /etc/mail directory
- run vi sendmail.cf
- You can use any file editor, I just prefer vi
- If using vi type: /DSsmtp
- / does a search for string DSsmtp
- Once that line is found, then you’ll want to change it to: DSsmtp.YourDomain.com
- Save the file and reload sendmail services
In this post, I’m going to go over the deployment of AutoDesk Building Design Suite Premium 2015 using SCCM 2012.
- You’re going to use AutoDesk BDSP setup wizard to create the ‘image’ folder using AutoCAD’s own image building process. This process will allow you to perform a standard, or custom, installation of AutoDesk’s applications and features, so I’m not going into details about this. At the end of this process, AutoDesk’s wizard will create a SMS_SCCM scripts folder which contains text files that will allow you to install and un-install BDSP; we’re going to use these text files for the deployment.
- The SCCM client imposes a folder size on C:\Windows\ccmcache folder, so we’re going to have to use another script to call the installation process scripts created in step 1.
Here’s what I use for a Detection Method, basically I’m looking for BDSP executable files on the target computer.
This process works well for my environment.
Make a note that this installation may take hours (2-4)…
