Script Version Control Settings

Is there anyway to script the settings for the version control agent (the Computer Name setting and the Login account, screen shot attached, this is Windows)?

I looked around, but was not able to find anything, I am assuming that these are stored locally somewhere, but I don't see them in the registry or in Program files...

Re: Script Version Control Settings

You can use Replicate Agent Settings in HP SIM to take a reference unit configured the way you want it and blast that out to multiple systems.

Awesome, I didn't think of using SIM, thank you!

Re: Script Version Control Settings

I believe all the settings are stored in file C:\hp\hpsmh\data\cgi-bin\vcagent\vcagent.options

What you could do is configure a "gold" system and then copy the vcagent.options file from that serverto all your servers using a script. I think you would also need to restart the SMH and VCAgent services after the copy. You would proably have to do this for each of your various configuration types (for Windows 2003 would problably be different than Windows 2008, etc.)

Re: Script Version Control Settings

keep in mind that both "Replicate Agent Settings" and the file copy require that source and destination VCAgent versions are the same.

Also keep in mind that you can pre-configure packages in the VCRM settings. This will ensure that settings are the same on all installs.
