Central Administration via Group Policy

Postby serg108 » 03 May 2019, 01:41

Hiya!

Can you kindly comment on my questions, thank you in advance!

My Environment:
- LM Server Version 4.8 (4864)
- 100 + servers


1. Is it possible to control LM settings Centrally via GPO/GPP (Group Policy Objects/Preferences)?

From what I'm reading all LM settings are stored in Registry under:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\LiteManager\v3.4\Server\Parameters
and
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\LiteManager NoIpServer\Parameters

If I capture these Registry settings, with the exception of "ID (read only)" - can these settings be pushed to a number of computers via GPO/GPP?
So far I was not able to do that. Not sure what I'm doing wrong, settings do not take effect. I just want to confirm it is not bugged and it is possible to do it.

The only way I have found to do it - is to manually "Export settings XML" and Import them back. The perspective of doing this manually across 100+ servers is not pleasant.

2. Same question about the settings: Connect by ID > Options > Main> "Use public LiteManager NoIP Server" setting. Is this setting getting saved to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\LiteManager NoIpServer\Parameters
or in:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\LiteManager\v3.4\Server\Parameters

3. Are there LM settings which are not stored in Registry and have to be input manually?

Hello!

1.
Settings of the LM Server stored in
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\LiteManager\v3.4\Server\Parameters
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\LiteManager\v3.4\Server\Parameters (backup copy)

Yes, it is possible. Should works.

Possible changing LM Server settings remotely

2.
Same question about the settings: Connect by ID > Options > Main> "Use public LiteManager NoIP Server" setting. Is this setting getting saved to:

This settings saved to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\LiteManager\v3.4\Server\Parameters in NoIPSettings parameters

3.
Yes, it is possible look at Compact version with the file Config.xml

Export settings in Config.xml, or create it as clear text file beside to ROMServer.exe. After copy this file to all of your LM Servers.

Clcik on Compact version, the file Config.xml will be created automatically. (after copy it to all other PCs)

Thank you for the answers.

3. It appears that config.xml does not store information for Connect by ID (Options)

Can you please advise, how it can be changed via registry or some other config (other than manually changing this setting on local server)

The testing I have done is:

1. Configure Server#1
2. Enable Compact mode on Server#1
3. Copy config.xml from Server#1 to Server #2

After opening settings on Server #2 I can see most of my settings are identical to Server#1 but some are not.
"Connect by ID Options" settings are not getting cloned...

p.s.

To be exact, I want to remove/untick from all my servers "User public LiteManager NoIP Server"

All are right, just restart LM Server (or copy xml to Server #2 when it is stopped)
4. Restart LM Server
