Framework not deploying with installs turned off.

Post by brainstomp »

Okay,

so I bought the licenses.
I started to test.
I thought I had it sorted, so I bought more licenses.
Now I ran into a problem.

If I don't exclude the client machines from installs they get every single piece of software in the chocolatey plugin setting. Even if auto-install is turned off.

If I exclude the client machines from installs then the Chocolatey framework is never installed.

Code: Select all

Now installing Chocolatey framework.
Chocolatey Licenses 75 , Licenses Used 38
System ID 816 is set to be excluded. remove this setting before trying install again.
Deployment scheduling of the Chocolatey Framework is now complete.

So how do I deploy the chocolatey framework without it also installing every single application on the plugin software list?

That was done intentionally during the design phase when MSPs we queried said that if an agent is excluded they do not want Chocolatey or any other app to be deployed. So from a easy of use perspective this might make more work to configure in that manor.

To do it you will need to disable all apps listed under the agents console for Chocolatey then enable the agent for installs.

Complete the following in this order:
Agent Level: Disable all listed Apps in console
Client level: Enable agent for installs (and updates)
Client Level: Push out framework or allow automated install.

This will allow chocolatey to be installed but the apps enabled to be disabled.

Maybe I'm not explaining this correctly.
So here is a screen shot of one of systems in question.
See where things like Atom, CDBurnerXP, Chromium are excluded from AutoInstall? Well what is happening is that if I enable Chocolatey the software that is listed as excluded is being installed anyway. So I can't enable Chocolatey installs at all or every single one of my managed computers gets every single one of these excluded applications.

Can you verify via agent script logs that the excluded applications are being passed to the agent for installs. There should be a record of each application that was pushed down.

This would help us isolate where this is happening for you.
