Re: Habitat 3rd Party Application Management

I really am not trying to be negative but it concerns me a bit when QC issues have happened multiple times in this module and it automatically rolls out to a large number of our clients. Could you share your practice about how you are testing these updates so that issues like the ones that have been...

Re: 3rd party app - chocolatey install

Thanks I updated the script manually as JvdMaat suggested and mine is working properly now to install Chocolatey if missing. Once the location EDF is there I can start pushing to more clients. Thanks for updating this!

Re: 3rd party app - chocolatey install

Getting this when the script prepares to update: 'CHOCOEXE@' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. Correlates to just after this command is run: 0|C:\ProgramData\chocolatey\bin\choco.exe-File or Directory Does Not Exist and then commands to upgrade the...

Re: 3rd party app - chocolatey install

Thanks. So I turned on Enable Workstations at a client site and it scans the machines fine. When I try to push an app update like Google Chrome I get the following if Chocolatey is not installed: App Manager Running Agent Update Checks for [Google Chrome]... The system cannot find the path specified...

Re: 3rd party app - chocolatey install

Not sure if your 3rd party app script is installing Chocolatey. In my tests, the updating does not work until I push Chocolatey install through another script we have and then it works fine. Can you confirm the 3rd party app updater is pushing Chocolatey properly if it does not find it installed?

Re: Habitat 3rd Party Application Management

Yeah I was thinking about this more and I think doing an EDF like you have for the POSH stuff at the location level as well would really help as if someone deploys an agent that we don't want to 3rd party patch it would be a manual change to block it at the computer level but if the location already...

Re: Habitat Local Administrators group Monitor (LAGM)

I confirmed my version is now 1.0.0.37 and the script is now showing up. I ran a Rescan Agent on a few machines and it is now showing the Admin User and Last Scan column information. I will check after 13:00 to see if another client I have it turned on for automatically shows up without me manually ...

Re: 3rd party app - chocolatey install

I think I may have answered my own question. If I push Chocolatey via script it seems to then allows the 3rd party app plug in to do its stuff. The one where it would not push via our script I used the Powershell plug-in to run the command on the machine and it then installed Chocolatey and seems to...

Re: Habitat 3rd Party Application Management

Yeah that would be great. We still want to know about out of date versions but sometimes have to manually update or just report so that seems like it would work well. Thanks!

3rd party app - chocolatey install

Does 3rd party app updater require Chocolatey to already be installed? I have at least one machine that it seems like Chocolatey will not install via a script we have and when I run an upgrade on an app like Google I get the message "The system cannot find the path specified" Will the 3rd party app ...
