AMS Scans

  • Computers at DESY are scanned monthly to collect information about technical configuration and installed software. Have a look at the attached document 'Software-Lizenzen't.
  • Windows-Computer:
  •        within domaine:   A pcx-number has to be assigned to computers with help of MS managment-console. Then scanning proceeds autmatically.
  •       with domaine, but auto scans disabled:   After significant changes computes have to be scanned manually. This can be initiated from MS managment-console, or the scanner program can be started manually.
  •      outside of domaine:   Computers have to be scanned manually. To do this the follwing registry-key has to be set to the pcx-number: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow632Node\DESY-AMS\Version  (e..g..: Version=pcx12345). Then open a CMD-window as administrator and start the downloaded scanner program. If the compuetr has no connection to the DESY-network start scanner with this syntax: AMSW32win32-x86.exe -p:C:\Temp\. When the scanner stops without error it will create a Scan(.xsf)- and a Log(.log)-File in C:\Temp. Copy these soon to  S:\services\AMS\incoming_manuell, or send them to
  • Macintosh-Computer:   A scanner program for Intel-based Macs is available for download. Before starting it in a terminal-window it has to be assigned execute-rights (chmod +x ...) and two environement variables have to be set : computername and geraeteid. For geraeteid use the pcx-Nummer, e.g.: 'export computername="zitmeinPC"' and 'export geraeteid="pcx12345"'. Thenyou an start the scanner programe e.g.: ./AMSW32macosx-x86. Both scanfiles computername.xsf and computername.log are copied automatically with FTP .
