  2. Kavaa is right, this should be available as part of the standard report and maybe even something that can become actionable. It's too easy to see Windows 10 Pro and think everything is ok. Seeing Windows 10 Pro 1607 would be more important since it is no longer supported by MS.

    I've removed the link for your security. Basically iCloud and most other file sharing websites try to hide direct links to the files in order to prevent the spread of malware and to prevent abuse of their service. That being said, you do want to be able to download files without any user interaction on the site so you should host these files on a publicly accessible web server that you control, AWS S3 or a similar file hosting service which allows you to directly access the file and not a landing page which then links to the actual file. -Paul

    Custom Titles

    Hi there, I've checked your custom software titles and it seems that UC-ONE was successfully provisioned and Test has failed to provision because the iCloud link you've provided is not a direct link to the file so our provisioning system is receiving HTML text instead of the MSI file. -Paul
  8. I too have the same issue but i am using an MSI. have tried Sharepoint, icloud, drop box. etx
  9. Hi there! I often find myself running scripts on our machines in a way that demands follow up/verification, so I thought it would be a good thing to be able to add scripts to a queue in Pulseway to have them run at a later point in time when a system becomes available online. Currently I tend to keep a document with all the machines listed, so I can mark them one by one in order to know which ones are done, and which ones remain. This is kinda tedious because our machines (especially laptops) tend to be offline for longer periods of time, and I have to follow up on a daily basis until the script ran successfully on all of them. I know about automation tasks in Pulseway and the possibility to schedule scripts to run daily, weekly etc. But they will continue to run on all computers for as long as the task is enabled. I've tried to cope with this by building scripts that won't reapply the software and/or settings if existing data is found. It seems to work, although it's not an optimal solution since the scripts will run tens or hundreds of times on our systems when they only really need to be ran once. So, what am I suggesting? The possibility to run one or multiple scripts (either directly or via an automation task depending on what the Pulseway devs prefer) With an option to run once. With an option to include offline systems (the script/s will be queued for when they come back online) With an option to send success/failure-reports to the administrator With an option to retry once, twice or three times whenever a script is unsuccessful. (in my case this is useful because Powershell Impersonation doesn't work in home environments when VPN is disabled, so a second attempt may succeed.) A section in Pulseway WebGUI where an administrator can see the deployment progress and success/failure-ratio. One of many scenarios: I have a script that will install a scheduled task with some predefined values, and upgrade an MSI-installation to a newer version. I want to make sure that all our computers run the script with a successful output. Please let me know if you find this suggestion useful!
  10. Hi there, You may also need to setup port forwarding for wake on lan to work: https://www.howtogeek.com/192642/how-to-remotely-turn-on-your-pc-over-the-internet/. -Paul
  11. Hi Adrian, Make sure you tick the use dedicated server box and enter your Team instance name as well. If you don't do this then the client apps will default to the Pro plan. -Paul

  13. Hola. Pulseway funciona bien en red domestica pero en Wan con el celular en 4g no puedo despertar la pc, lo raro es que en wan 4g la puedo apagar pero no encender/despertar. Tengo el bios configurado para magic packet, tengo la targeta de red configurada para despertar con magic packet y habilitado. Y tengo deshabilitado el inicio rapido en windows 10.
  14. Beginner with Pulseway Maybe a silly question but how do we log in into either iPhone app or Dashboard? I tried Administrator and the password assigned to the account but just get an incorrect un and password. Appreciate the help. Adrian

    Custom Titles

    Hi there, For the Pulseway 3rd party patching system to work you need to provide it with an MSI file, not an executable bootstrapper. MSIs enforce a certain standard that allows us to identify if the application is already installed and perform the installation or removal without any user interaction. -Paul

    Custom Titles

    Hi Team, Has anyone tried the new feature custom titles? I have tried it with two applications and keep getting "Failed to read metadata". Can anyone help with this? Thank you, Sean Faria
  17. Hi there, Chances are that the agent was installed under a different user. You can reinstall it by deleting the service registration by running as an administrator: sc delete "PC Monitor" You don't really need to reinstall it, just open the Pulseway Manager app from C:\Program Files\Pulseway\PCMonitorManager.exe -Paul

    Older Versions

    Hi there, No, Pulseway's oldest supported Windows operating system is Windows XP and the server equivalent Windows Server 2003. -Paul

    Older Versions

    Is Pulseway compatible with older versions of Windows (going back to 95)?
  20. So, i downloaded the Pulseway_64 to windows, and installed and runned it, and was all ok. Then i turned of the pc and when i came back some time later, and the agent just vanished, was NOWHERE. Then i tried to reinstall it, but a messsage said "Error 1001. The specified service already exists". Then i tried to clean the pc from any pulseway file and reinstall, but ended in the same place. May someone help me?

  22. When you run scripts through Pulseway they run as the local SYSTEM user which is the computer name with a dollar sign at the end. You could use a WMI query to get the username instead like this: But make sure that you account for the case when there's no user logged into the system. -Paul
  23. When entering the following, script, I get an error. The error message indicates that the script is adding a "$" character to the device name, and I can't figure out why.

    APCUPSD Support?

    Hi @tolcheen, Pulseway can monitor network devices via SNMP from Windows system if this option is supported on the network device. For more details on how to configure SNMP monitoring please check out the following link.
  27. Hi @tolcheen, In order to monitor hardware on the same system via SNMP you will need to install SNMP service on your system and then configure Pulseway to monitor these SNMP variables via SNMP. For more details on how to configure this please checkout the following link. Also, we will check if OpenHardware monitor has an update in which support for these motherboards is added.
  28. Hi @tolcheen, In order to configure SNMP you will need to verify the following: 1. Does that device support SNMP monitoring. 2. Verify that SNMP is enabled on the interface to which you are connecting. 3. If are you using SNMP V3, then you need to verify that that user is created on network device and configured so you can access SNMP. 4. Make sure that port on which SNMP is available is open (usually port 161) 5. If you have made multiple unsuccessful connections, then it is possible that Pulseway has blocked this connection and in order to clear this blocking you will need to restart Pulseway service on the device from which are you trying to connect. Regarding SNMP service - for Windows servers, it is required if you try to config SNMP monitoring on the same device on which Pulseway agent is installed, however if it is remote device, then it is not required.
  29. Hi there, Yes, if you must use an executable installer then the automation scripts are there for you. Just upload the file on one of your web servers so your systems can reach it (dropbox works too but make sure you copy the direct link to the file) and then write a script that does the following: a) Check to see if the software is installed b) If the software is not installed, download and silently install it (make sure there's no user interaction required) c) Reboot if necessary -Paul
