Upgrading from PrettyGoodFrontend

Oct 27, 2011 at 9:17 PM

Hello,

We have used Johan's PrettyGoodFrontend for a while now on my central site, to serve OSD on a couple of secondary sites, and i'm looking into converting to PrettyGoodFrontendClone with Maik's webservices as i have not managed to get the OSD working on my primary sites.

I don't really have any knowledge about how to configure the customsettings.ini. The guy who set this up for me have left the company. I've tried to understand how the customsettings.ini from the MDT documentation but it's still abit of a blur to me. I tried with 1:1 conversion by just changing the asmx filenames and tried to figure out the webservice properties/stored procedures but i didn't manage very well...

This is how the customsettings.ini looks like today (censured some stuff):

[Settings]
Priority=Default

UserID=SCCMWebService
UserPassword=<password>
UserDomain=<domain>

[GetTaskSequenceList]

[GetAssignedSite]
WebService=http://<myserver>/wsfrontend/UnknownComputer.asmx/GetAssignedSite

Basicly i'm using locations for location specific settings (ui language and keyboard locale etc) and to determine which parent OU the frontend should start from. The location name is the same as the OU name.

Is it possible to convert this to Maik's webservices and PrettyGoodFrontendClone? How do i do?

Help is very appreciated!
