Plugin Deployment

Recommended Posts

Is there a graceful method that Pulseway has to deploy plugins to endpoints? There are a couple of plugins I would like to use for all of our monitored Windows machines, but manually downloading the plugin, installing it, and configuring it on each individual machine won't be worth the time.

We have a Pulseway Enterprise Server; is there a way we can load the plugins into that, so we can deploy them to monitored endpoints?

we use three plug ins, open / shutdown plugin allows remote reset / shutdown and pc monitor config which allows denial of all sorts of things from the mobile app.

there are two different shutdown plugins we use, hence three of them.

 

MobilePCMonitorConfigurator.dll

PaulCsiki.ShutdownPlugin.dll

ShutdownScheduler.dll

 

I too would like the ability of installing these automatically rather than manually.

Actually I was thinking about the exact same thing too. I wrote my shutdown plugin because the other one didn't work when I tried it. Does it work for you?

Hi Juhan,

You can place the plugin into the shared folder and then configure it on one of your monitored systems. After you have configured it, then try to create the powershell script which will recreate this registry key on other machines:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MMSOFT Design\PC Monitor\Plugins

But note, if you have deployed more than one plugin, then this could become complicated.

Thanks for your reply!

Just tested it on one computer and it works. Thanks!

      I changed phones recently and the new app says:
      'This device is pending approval. Login to the WebApp and approve it from the account devices page.'
      If I got to https://my.pulseway.com/main/account/devices there is no device to approve.
      Am I doing something wrong?

      Here is a Batch script to empty the SoftwareDistribution Folder.  It stops any installer processes in the background, temporarily disables the Windows Update Service, deletes everything in the Software Distribution folder then sets the Windows update service back to automatic and starts the service.
      @echo off
      CD C:\
      taskkill /F /im setup.exe
      taskkill /F /im ose00000.exe
      taskkill /F /im msiexec.exe
      sc config wuauserv start= disabled
      net stop wuauserv
      PowerShell.exe Remove-Item C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\* -Force -Recurse
      sc config wuauserv start= demand
      net start wuauserv

      Hi
      Could someone assist in helping me to set up an alert when a network connection is dropped.
      This is happening at one of my client sites after changing to a new ISP. The ISP says the router/switch is fine but connections are dropping.
      I would like to be able to log when a connection drops (ideally knowing if the internet connection has dropped or just the internal network connection)
      I'm not sure a simple ping notification is good enouh in Pulseway to do this as I need to know if the connection has dropped for a few mseconds as well as larger outages.
      I guess the Event Viewer holds the answers but would appreciate it if anyone has done this before if they could share their thoughts.
      Thank you, Andy

      Hi,
      Has anyone got some advice on monitoring McAfee please? We need a way to monitor to the AutoUpdate so it alerts us if this has not run.
      Previously we have a script that checks the registry of each server then sends an email with the information, however we would like to replace this with a Pulseway alert if out of date.
      I have searched the forum but the last post is from 2012 so i was hoping there is a solution to this. Also looked from registry/WMI queries but that seems to be for reporting rather than monitoring.
      Thanks.
