Hi, We are just doing the inventory of all our machines right now. We begun last week and only 4000 machines have gone to the inventory as most people is on vacation, so we hope to finish it on September when the course begins. It uses perl, not only php. The agent is quite simple and easy to be hacked. Its installation is also quite simple. I attach you the script we are running in all our computers when they are started, so make it running out of the box should be really easy, except for the server. In that case it will be more complicated, but not too hard. For the script, forget the part that assigns a route, that's because many of our schools have decided to start the students PC's without a route to avoid students use Internet. Only the teacher can enable internet use in that case, but obviously it doesn't apply to debian-edu. On the other hand, ocsinventory is really powerful when used together with glpi (http://www.glpi-project.org/ ) as both projects are collaborating, you can pass all the ocs data to glpi and use it together with a more ambitious goals. We are using it for our schools call-center. Glpi doesn't seem to fit inside the school servers, but it would be really useful for companies supporting the schools. Regards. José L.
