    in regard to: http://www.freewysemonkeys.com/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=21

    It says, “it is possible to use the Default Device Configuration (DDC) features of Rapport Enterprise to hand out individual WNOS directories. This is done based on device views created in the Rapport console. To accomplish this Rapport needs an “image”, in the case of WTOS we use a Rapport script to import the entire contents of the WNOS folder into Rapport and register it as a non PXE image.”

    does someone have an example of a rapport script that does this? I went through the Creating Rapport Packages PDF, but none of the commands looked obvious for this.

    And do I have this logic right: The wnos.ini will have the RootPath defined and put into a package. When the package is applied to a group defined in Device Manager view, it will change the rootpath on all those devices. Then they will use the wnos.ini in that ftp location.

    Cool. I looked at that document before, but discarded it after the first few steps because it was setting up the DDC, something I wasn’t intersted in. However, after the above post I looked deeper and saw that step 5, appendix 2, and step 6 contained most of the information I’ve been looking for. So, thank you.

    Of course, it didn’t go smoothly after that. I created script.rsp and set it in the ftp root next to a folder called script with a wnos subfolder and all the config info. That might be the problem to begin with, since I’m not really sure where to run this stuff.

    Anyway, in WDM I right clicked Package Manager>New>Package… I left the radio button on Register a Package from a script file, next. Browsed to the script file, next. Next and then Next one more time. At that point it starts to register the package. I get an Error: Unable to connect to FTP repository. When I click OK on that I get a second message: Please enable a transfer ptorocol [sic] – no protocols are currently available.

    So I’ve verified the Software Repository works correctly and I can connect to ftp no problem from any machine I try. And I tried moving the script and folder around to different places in the ftp structure, none of which made any difference. Anybody have any ideas where this error might be coming from or what troubleshooting steps I might try next? Hopefully I’m just making a rookie mistake which is easily taken care of.

    Thanks!

    oh, here is the content of my script:

    [Version]
    Number=script
    Description=WTOS configuration test
    OS=BL
    Category=Images
    USE_PXE=NO
    ImageSize=128

    [Script]

    Can you connect to the FTP server using the account “rapport” with password “r@p8p0r+”?
    Can you create a folder on the FTP server while logged in with that user?
    Check if the password of that user is expired.
