Is there any documentation the API? Plus, is there ever only one API key? I would like to experiment with pulling PC information into my own internal software.

RE: What does your server configuration look like?
We've been using TheOpenEM since the beginning of June. It has completely replaced System Center for us, as it does all of the things we actually used System Center for.
My TOEMS server runs on a VMWare VM. The host it's on has Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2620 v4 @ 2.10GHz with 32 logical processors.
The VM itself has 8 CPUs and 8GB of ram assigned for it. I run two hard drives, a 40 GB virtual that's on my SAN, and a 1TB volume that I am using TrueNAS to provide. This is the storage I use for all images, drivers, software, etc.
Until this past week, I had one COM server,and it was the same virtual machine. I have since added a second comm server at one of our other buildings, to test out Multicast.
Our Windows fleet is around 500 PCs, between teachers, staff, and labs.
Another Weird One - Printer Installation
Once again, using the universal image. The device is an HP All in One. When I try to install a Lexmark M3200 printer, it says that a core driver is missing, and it can't install. I can install the printer on the image before sysprep, but the imaged machine can not install the printer. Any idea if I'm missing some drivers that should have been dumped when I made the profile? I've even tried the profile of a similar model, thinking that I might have grabbed the drivers from the first model improperly, as it was the first one I did several weeks ago.
So, short question: Do you think something is getting removed during sysprep that would make it difficult to install the printer? I know that's not specifically a TOEMS problem, but I'm working my way backward through the chain.
Process for scheduling an image deployment
If I tell a device what its image is, and I tell it to deploy the image, when I reboot, the only prompt I should get is selecting "Boot to Local" or "TheOpenEM", correct? For some reason, I still get the login prompt, and then the menu of Deply, Upload, Multicast, etc. And it doesn't try to automatically reimage the device.
Am I missing a configuration option, or am I misunderstanding how it works/how to use it?
RE: COM Server Storage
In my situation every client has access to the SMB share, or at least in theory. I tried this: I used an UNC path for the local storage on the com server, and I am currently multicasting to two devices. I'm going to see how it goes.
Worst that will happen is it won't work, so hey...
COM Server Storage
I'm trying to set up a second com server. Does the COM server have to use local storage? What happens if I don't replicate storage, as appears to be an option for the com server replication settings.
Is it possible to have image information stored on a remote drive, and have the com server serve it directly from there?
My storage is currently a freenas ISCSi target that the TOEMS server is pointed at. My second com server is in another building, so I'm not sure if ISCSI is a safe way to go.
More descritpive name of service.log
Would it be possible to include the device name and a timestamp in the name of the downloaded service.log file? I keep ending up with a downloads folder full of service (1).log, service (20).log, etc. It would be handy to be able to refer back to them more easily.
RE: Category as dynamic criteria and custom inventory as report fields
@theopenem_admin Ok, I follow. Every field you include has to be in the query itself. Got it, I know what you mean now. Thanks.
RE: Remotely issues
@theopenem_admin I have not physically been to the devices to check. I'll see if I can get to the file system from remote and check. Any idea what would cause that to disappear? I do see it trying to reinstall Remotely a lot. Perhaps a policy that's trying to reinstall remotely too often?
