If your on a tight budget GLPI and Fusion/OCS agents get the job done.
GLPI Server Install
My installation is done on CentOS 7 and PHP 5.6.X with MySQL 10.X . The installer is very good about telling you what you need in order to get it up and running.
Enabling GLPI cron is a good step as well, in CentOS7 you will want to add the following cron entry
* * * * * /usr/bin/php /var/www/html/glpi/front/cron.php &>/dev/null
GLPI Server Config
Fusion Inventory Agent Config
A great resource is the fusion forum. Especially when you go over the other threads and figure out your issues while typing up a post.
For testing I did a graphical install using the following settings
- Server : https:glpi.domain.com/plugins/fusioninventory/front/communications.php
NOTE : You can use https:glpi.domain.com/plugins/fusioninventory/
- I then disabled SSL checking for the testing phase, though I have PKI in place and the endpoints obtain a CA trust.
NOTE : You can change these settings in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\FusionInventory-Agent
- I also did not run the quick installer. There are a few options that you may want to select.
