SCCM AssetSetup Questions


Recommended Posts

@Steve Giller @Giuseppe Iannacone @JBasey

Hello gentlemen.  My Company is working on setting up Asset Import/syncing from SCCM into Hornbill.  You have either developed this tool, or have implemented it in your instances.  I had a couple of questions for you.

1. It seems to me that the tool is written so that it must be loaded onto the SCCM server itself?  Is this correct?  If so, does it need to run on the drive that the SQL database is setup on, or is it fine on the boot drive of that server?  My SCCM Admin has concerns that the tool "might screw up his highly tuned SCCM server".

2. Do any ports need to be opened on the Firewall to allow the tool to connect with Hornbill?  If so, which ones?

 

Thank you in advance for generously sharing your wisdom with me!

Hi @Kevin Kennedy,

  1. The utility needs access to the SCCM database, it does NOT need to reside on the SCCM server itself.
  2. The utility "talks" to Hornbill over HTTPS (by default port 443). IF you are using proxy servers, then you would need to look into using the environment settings HTTP_PROXY & HTTPS_PROXY (details should be in the utilities' documentation on the wiki.

Thanks so much for the help thus far.  I have now gotten to the point where the users are being cached from Hornbill, but I am getting an error on the Site caching.  I know it is likely something simple that I have not done or incorrectly done causing this, but cannot figure out what.  Any ideas?

Here is the actual text from the log file

It is below, but the only lines I changed from the example are the first 3.  Thanks in advance for any advice anyone can offer.

Hi @Kevin Kennedy,

The error message suggests that the DB connection is not functioning (i.e. it is already beyond the "Sites" bit).

I would expect the "Database" section in the configuration file to have the "Authentication" set to "SQL" of "Windows". I'd also double-check the settings in KeySafe for the ID given.
