I have differed update from version 1.3.3 to version 2.0 or 2.0.1 because of bundled libraries and license incompatibility which are now fixed.

Official Web Site : http://www.ocsinventory-ng.org/.

Of course, install could be done using YUM :

yum --enablerepo=remi,remi-test install ocsinventory

The ocsinventory package is a meta-package which allow to install in a single command:

  • ocsinventory-server : the Communication server
  • ocsinventory-reports : the Administration console
  • mysql-server : the Database server
Of course, it's possible to install each sub-package separately on different computers.

If you still prefer the download : the repository (available for Fedora ≥ 10 and RHEL / CentOS ≥ 4)

After installation of the packages, connect on http://localhost/ocsreports/ to create the database and configure the application (or migrate to the new DB schema).

You should read : OCS and GLPI installation guide which could simplify the installation process (this article probably need to be updated)

Of course, I'm wating for your tests and feedback on this application, a "must be used" with GLPI (even with fusioninventory extension which is, now, a working alternative). If feedbacks are good, I will move it to remi repository and fedora / EPEL officials ones.

SNMP discovery will not work until you enable /snmp alias in /etc/httpd/conf.d/ocsinventory-server.conf (after you have read the warning about security).

For the inventory of linux computer, two agents are available:
