Workstation rebuild

When Machine is built it gets the old hostname rather than new. Old hostname has been removed from SQL, HPCA and AD. Upload logs indicate the machine is built but it has been assigned the old hostname.

Extended Notify Security to remote notify for patches


I would like to execute remote command to download patches but I have applied "Extended Notify Security to validate remote notify" https://radiasupport.accelerite.com/hc/en-us/articles/203659824 and when I type Radntfyc.exe localhost -l Token -p PASSWORD -e ENCRYPT Token it use command from the ZNFYCMDL Radntfyc localhost radskman ip=<core-ip>,dname=software,uid=$machine,cop=y,log=connect.log.

There is other way to run command remotely to agent to download patches (not software)?

Should I use some special switches for Radntfyc.exe or add special values for class Extended Security Notify in CSDB?

Making a ,cmd/batch file process viewable on user's pc during a self service install
When running self service manager, Is there a way to make the install screen, either by an .msi/batch/cmd/setup.exe viewable so the user can choose a few options while the install is running. I have a few driver installs where they are not signed drivers but are allowed to install the driver regardless. I can not get the install to run silent because of this pop up. I would like to deliver it via self service manager but need to have the install screen appear. Is there a way to accomplish this? What setting in the DB editor need to be set in order for the install to be viewable. Any info would be great. Thanks!

Operating system deployment
We are facing deployment with OS deployment in our organisation. My Wim file size is 9 GB (Appox.) and we have split it into 255 MB SWM files. While installing windows using ImageX it throws the error " Image install or set up error" Is this something related to size of image or there is some other issue where you can help me with troubleshooting?

RADIA - Package Reboots and File Base Write Filter

We are running HP Thin Clients in our environment, utilizing the file based write filter. There is a package which we need to install on these thin clients, this requires a reboot post installation to complete.

We currently have the reboot flag on the package set to AI=SA,AD=SA

The ZCREATE does not force a reboot.

We need to ensure the following:

  • Software connect is issued, write filter is turned off and device rebooted
  • Package installs, and causes the Thin Client to reboot (with write filter off so that the installation can complete)
  • Software connect continues when devices is back up
  • Once connect has fully completed, write filter is turned back on and device rebooted

We have tried changing the ZCREATE method so that it causes a device reboot, but the agent doesn’t take too kindly to this. The software connect does not complete after the device comes back online, and the write filter remains disabled.

How can we instruct the agent to reboot the device after installing the package, to complete the installation, whilst maintaining the FBWF?

Note: We are running 8.1

Powershell Modules

Is there currently or plans to support powershell in future releases for Radia. As many modern technologies have taken this root we have been able to automate many tasks, saving time and reducing human error.

If this is not currently the case I would interested in building my own modules is there any API documentation that can be released?

LDAP authentication at Satellite
Hello all, do someone have any experience and/or tips and tricks for setting MS AD (LDAP) authentication for Satellite (especially in Radia 9.1)? Even though the configurations is really simple I've got two different behavior at two different systems. At one systems I can configure LDAP Auth, it configures Apache and simple doesn't work - I can't get to Sat web UI by domain login neither by admin login. At second system I'm unable to configure LDAP Auth at all, it just tell me that it can't connect LDAP, but from server I can ping and telnet domain controllers.

The AUDIT.FILE.ACTION FLAGS includes 3 flags at the end.  the first is to detect the file and send it, the second to delete the file and the third is for a CUSTOM action.  The only explanation provided is "Execute the method indicated in the CUSTOM attribute"


I'd like to take advantage of this to include a rename of the file instead of simply report and/or delete.  Has anyone used it?

"Prohibited software" feature mentioned in official Radia presentation PPT - really? how, where?


As an Accelerite partner, i came accross a PPT presentation on the Accelerite Support site, titled "Technical-Overview-Radia2014". I see that this a rather old PPT but it is still available on the support site so i take it to be valid.

Slide 37 in that presentation is titled "Prohibited Software" and it talks about the feature to "Identify and block unapproved or prohibited software" using "prohibition rules". It also mentions that Radia management agent can "Identify prohibited software from Blacklist" and "Stops prohibited software form running each time user attempts to launch".

Since the concept of strict control over software installation is something many customers are interested in, this caught my attention as i have been working with older Radia on several projects and i have never seen such a feature in the product, or at least i don't remember.

So, is this really possible to Radia to handle "prohibited software" and if yes, what RCA module, feature, objects or mechanisms are used to support this? Is this a part of Usage Management?

Please point me in the right direction, how and where in the RCA system to configure the control over "prohibited software"?

Is this and explicit RCA feature or just an implicit cool thing you could indirectly construct out of standard RCA objects and features?

(of course, i wasn't able to find any clue in the official product manuals, no "prohibition rules" or anything like that is mentioned there)

Any guidance would be appreciated, thanks

This application failed to install correctly
Has anyone every seen where an application was published and the full service satellites have been synced yet the job will not come down unless the client is pointed to the core? We have a job that gives the "This application failed to install correctly. Please contact your system administrator for assistance." error every time unless it's pointed to the core. The exit code in the connect.log is always 709. I've deleted the zservice and appropriate lib folder but the error persists. Any ideas?

Radia 7.9


I would like to understand what is involved in upgrading from Radia 7.9 to Radia 10.x.

  1. What is the migration path
  2. Do I need new Infra?
  3. Do I need to do anything with existing packages or will they work with Radia 10.x
  4. Do I need to do anything from Radia perspective if I move from Win 7 to Win 10 as well?
  5. Also, Do I need to pay for any license fee?

You can call me to discuss the details.

Ms16-142 Deploying Bulletin Problem

Hi guys,

We have some problems installing ms16-142 from radia. The problem is that clients have a message ' PATCH RISK Bulletin MS16-142 - risks have been detected '
NOTE : When we manually installed ms16-142, there is not a problem.

Well, how can we resolve this problem ? Have you any idea ?

MS June 2020 patches

After the June 2020 patches were installed on our Radia 10 site server (Windows Server 2016), we cannot assign patchmgr or software zservices in the console.  Has anyone experienced any issues in the console assigning active directory policy after June 2020 updates installed on site server?

Applications in Self-Service Manager not showing as installed, even though they are

Has anyone ever seen the catalog not accurately showing applications as installed, even though they are?  We recently upgraded from 10.0 to 10.0 CP1, so there is a new RadUIShell.exe -- could this be the problem?  But not everyone is seeing the problem.  Any comments or experiences are appreciated. We looked at ZAVIS in ASERVICE.xml and it appears the values were reset to YXNX for the installed services.  Very strange.

Radia 8.1 FBWF Issue

We have a model of thin client where the FBWF is not being re-Enabled during the overnight connect. 

After the device is built the filter is on due to a package that enabled and sets the filters exclusions list by the morning the filter set back to off.

Is there any known issue with the 8.1 agent or configuration that could cause this?

How to acquire the MS Windows Patches for the month of April & May 2017

Microsoft's changed the way they number their bulletins. The previous model used security bulletin ID numbers; this method is being retired, and the new security bulletins will be identified by vulnerability ID numbers and KB Article ID numbers.

Kindly extend your support to acquire the new security bulletins,


Thanks & Regards,

Timeout for software connect on group Radia Client Automation

We have an issue when we enforce software connect on group of 300 computers. We see that some of computer from group never get software
connect, they just timeout. Software connect for individual computer works fine but when we enforce software connect on 300 computers
only 50-60% actually gets software connect.
Is there a way to define timeout interval for computer and number of retries if computer is offline?

Path and file buffer size


I have a service with deep path promoted successfully in Radia 9.2. It's published using Windows installer / basic mode. The problem is during deployment, client (Ver. 9.20) can not resolve the file name because of the buffer size limit of 260 as stated in the Connect log:

NVD005012E [get_resource_fi] 13:01:40 [RADCONCT / 000016bc] SYSTEM --! Path ["C:\PROGRA~1\Novadigm\Lib\SYSTEM\RADIA\software\ZSERVICE\MTO_ADK_ACAD2016_20X0_00\"\]
and file [AC32\acadMTO\Img\x86\Components\BIM360\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins\AutoCAD2016Addin.bundle\Contents\Win32\PFiles\CommFiles\Autodesk Shared\Uninstall Tool\R1\UninstallEngine.dll]
does not fit in buffer of [260] size
NVD006001E [load_delta_entr] 13:01:40 [RADCONCT / 000016bc] SYSTEM --! Error resolving resource name from server object [MSIBASIC]

I appreciate if anybody shares a solution or workaround for this.

9.2 Messaging server

It's been a few versions of radia sense I've looked at the Messaging server configuration files and I need some clarifications/definitions of how it works.

My goali is to enable a secondary server for forwarding messages to. 

I know in the rms.cfg file, I can add a PRI 20 in the  mgs::register Forward {}  section to have a secondary server for forwarding messagings to, but what I don't understand is other sections of the rms.cfg, like msg::register MDM, I also see forward statements of PRI 10. If I was using MDM, would I needd to add in a PRI 20 for a secondary server also?


Also, what defines in the RMS.cfg if the machine is a forwarder or poster (writes to ODBC).
