    Hi Rob Thank You for this wonderful post.
    I have successfully install GLPI on Centos 6.7 and add windows and linux system with fusion-inventory.
    But How to deploy fusion-inventory remotely from GLPI server because it is not possible to install fusion-inventory one by one in client system.

    Regards,
    Raghu

    Greetings,

    I have managed to install GLPI v0.9 on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS with plugin for FusionInventory. The FusionInventory agent on my Ubuntu 16.04 client was also registered in the GLPI database. However, the FusionInventory agent (fusioninventory-agent_windows-x64_2.3.17.exe) on my MS WIndows 7 client was not.

    The agent appears to install without error. The host page also loads indicating the version running and an option to manually inventory. I have observed a reference to Strawberry Perl which I was unclear if was required.

    Grateful for your support and assistance in resolving this matter.

    I’m having problems with Fusion inventory also.
    I cannot start the agent, it shows 404 error.
    I think that the error is because I used a Rosehosting tutorial first and then stumbled upon yours article after which i continued from where I left off and installed Fusion inventory.
    I think I have to start a new installation.

      Ryan,

      404 just means that it couldn’t find the resource on the web server. This is still potentially correctable! First thing I would do is make sure that you have the file “/plugins/fusioninventory/front/plugin_fusioninventory.communication.php” where web root is the location of the files for GLPI. If this file exists, check the permissions on all the folders leading up to the file. They must be readable and executable by the user running the webserver (should be apache2 from this guide).

      The next thing I would check is on the GLPI client. Make sure that it can ping the webserver that is hosting the GLPI files. Then in the file “/etc/fusioninventory/agent.cfg” be sure that the “server=” line maps correctly to the file above for example: server=http://192.168.1.10//plugins/fusioninventory/front/plugin_fusioninventory.communication.php

      Let me know what happens!

    Hi Rob i have a problem with LinuMint, when i started the agent i see this :

    testmint minttest # fusioninventory-agent start
    [error][http client] communication error : 404 not found
    [fault] No answer from the Server at /usr/share/fusioninventory/Lib/FusionInventory/Agent.pm line 261.

    How can I fix this ? Thanks !

      Sam,

      This likely means that the url placed in the configuration file is not resolving. Open the agent file located at “/etc/fusioninventory/agent.cfg”. Inside this file there is a line that will start with “server = ” be sure that after the equal sign you place the url for the GLPI system. For example: “server = http://tecmint.tecmint.local/plugins/fusioninventory/front/plugin_fusioninventory.communication.php“. Be sure to change “tecmint.tecmint.local” to your systems hostname. Also make sure that the mint machine you are trying to configure can ping that hostname as well.
