C drive capture to D drive

I am attempting to create a solution in which I remotely tell a system to capture an image of the C drive and store it to D partition. Then if the C becomes corrupt I can have someone manually load the image from D back over C using a imagex disk. Has anyone else been able to accomplish this or something similar? Personality Backup and Restore, along with capturing the image and pulling it back to the server will not suffice as we have technicians out in the field who will need to access the image(backup) on demand.

Patch deployment best practice

Hello, we are starting use Radia to deploy Microsoft patches, we have a highly remote environment and always connected through WWAN. My question is what is best practices for patching highly mobile devices, and if you use a VPN application how do you split the connection so it automatically downloads patches using WIFI once the computer connects once in house.

Radia 7.8 to 9.2 CSDB Migration

 

I’m migrating a CSDB to 9.2 and in the migration guides best practices, for the audit domain, it states to migrate the individual services. Based on this, I’m assuming it’s an export for each zservice in the audit domain to produce the instance, class and resource file.   In another part of the migrate guide, it states to export all resources for the CSDB, again I’m assuming a single resource file for all resources in the CSDB. The question is, if the audit domain is by service which produces a xpi, xpr, xpc won’t this over write the schema changes when I import it.

panelpgm & radconsw
through radia 7.9 I used a batch file that called radconsw with an .ext file to select which radia manager I would connect to with radxplor. The ext file had been created in2001 with a radia paint program that now appears to be replaced by panelpgm. the combination of radconsw and the ext file made a change to the zmaster.zipaddr value on the machine it was run on, then launched radxplore to initiate the connecteion the the csdb editor. this is no longer functioning with the client upgraded to 9.2. are there new tools that replace what was working? is there a better method for selecting among several managers when launching the scdb editor?

Computer Object Error
I first created a computer object in my "Computers" OU. Ran a few patch notifies to the machine in the RCA Console and it succeeded. Next day I created a "Technology" sub OU under my "Domain" OU to keep things in order and did the same notifies, but the notifies failed. Just for the heck of it I moved the object back into the original OU since there it was succeeding, and the notifies didnt fail. Can anyone give some insight as to why this would be happening? I wouldnt think it would matter which container you have the computer object in. Thanks in advance.

Method error when I try to deploy a package.
The package is a .exe, and I try to deploy this .exe with scripts .cmd and vbs. Inside de cmd I have the command line in order to install the setup.exe. The command line works perfectly alone, but when I try to deploy the package with the agent, it gives me an error: Method error. I don't know what is the problem. Could you help me please?

Looking for best practices of un-installing a Radia Agent
Folks, I’m looking for the best practices for un-installing a Radia agent. On these specific machines, they will not be upgraded a newer version of Radia, but will be imported into a homegrown patch distribution tool only. These devices are used in a Dyno cell environment and are isolated from the corporate network but have their own private non-routable network. Anyway, I need to see if there are best practices related to un-installing the radia agent.

EDM attribute (edmusers)
I'm planning an upgrade from 7.8 to 9.2 and I noticed that a new edm attribute is in the ldif file labeled as edmUsers. Our schema was extended in version 4.2 in which it wasn't there. So the question I have is it required? We don't deploy services based on users. I think the answer is no, but I'm looking to confirm.

9.2 SQL Database
I noticed in 9.2 when you install a core server, the default configuration of the dda file is for core.dda.cfg and patch.dda.cfg to use the same DSN. Is this normal? I though in previous version that it was recommended to keep Inventory and patch separate? I'm planning an upgrade so I need to understand what the recommendations for patch and RIM. Any thoughts?

Tomcat.exe and mysqld-nt.exe on FSS
Can someone explain why/how the MySQL and Tomcat process are used on a Full Service Satellite. I had always understood these where part of the Core.

CSDB Soft Lock on Single Domain DCS Sync
Does anybody know off the top of their head if when you do a single domain DCS sync if it soft locks the entire DB? I am kicking around an idea where we could/would sync one domain more than our normal once a day full DCS sync (maybe hourly). However, I don't want it to soft lock the SOFTWARE domain as we could be doing imports.

Radia OS Manager 9.1 winpe.wim support for HP 600 G2 models
We are using OS Manager 9.1 to deploy our Windows 7 images. With the version 7 winpe.wim supplied with the 9.1 product we can build the HP 600 G1 model PC just fine. The G2 models lose network connectivity as soon as WinPE is loaded. We have tried injecting the latest network drivers into the current winpe.wim but it doesn't seem to help. Testing done by our workstation team seems to indicate the drivers for the G2 may be supported in WinPE 10 but not 7. Is anyone else having issues building new models with OS Manager?

reset software connect daily time

When I look in the radstate.log file (ZTIMEQ OBJECT) on a couple of computers the software connect daily is set to the following ZSCHDEF = [DAILY(19991010,00:00:00)] so the client doesn’t connect unless I force a software connection. Is there a way to reset the daily software connect time without having to reinstall the Radia 9.1 client?

Batch Publisher - 255 character path limit?

Can anyone confirm or deny that there is/was a 255 path limit in the Batch Publisher? I think I remember this from long ago. It used to be a Windows problem. Now Windows addressed it, however, I think utilities still needed to be updated to work with the newer APIs. We are probably using an older version of it, so maybe it was addressed in a new release. We can likely work around it, or call it into support. Just looking to see if anyone else knows the answer off the top of their head.

Details from the error I am pretty sure because the path is over 255 for this file.

Disconnect from RCS on Discover_Patch with Metadata only options

Kudos goes out to the Accelerite team for quickly addressing an issue we reported. I have been a proponent for creating a less RCS intensive Patch Manager product for quite a while. When the "Patch with Metadata Only" option came out I believed this was the answer. It was actually called "Offline Scanning" or "OPUS" (no idea what that stood for) at certain points. That model downloads all the patch data needed to do discover_patch to the device so it does not have to talk to the RCS during the scanning. I had assumed that meant it would disconnect from the RCS and not be using an Active Task. We had designed our capacity around this fact. However, after troubeshooting our infrastructure issues during our production patch rollouts the last couple of months  I discovered it was not working that way. It was not actually talking to the RCS, but it was still holding an Active Task and connection to the RCS during the 3~5 minutes or so it took to do discover_patch (all locally). I am referring to the Microsoft patches BTW.

Accelerite understood the issue, addressed it, and now it is already fix for the next time you do a patch acquire. I was impressed.

Long time customers may remember that a big selling point of Radia over EDM when it was first released was that EDM held the connection to the RCS (manager) during the entire connect. With Radia is was broken up so the client would connect and disconnect multiple times as to not waste resources on the server side while the client was busy doing stuff locally. We need to make sure we maintain that model. It helps us customers keep our cost down in infrastructure. I actually have an enhancement request for disconnecting during the BDELETE for similar reasons.

I have not implemented in Prod yet (it will not be until Jan patches are released), but I will repost any interesting results in reduce capacity needs after I analyze them.
