Available for NS7 in my repository, for NS6 please use the software center

Open Computer and Software Inventory Next Generation (OCS inventory NG) is free software that enables users to inventory IT assets. OCS-NG collects information about the hardware and software of networked machines running the OCS client program (“OCS Inventory Agent”). OCS can visualize the inventory through a web interface. Furthermore, OCS includes the capability of deploying applications on computers according to search criteria. Agent-side IpDiscover makes it possible to discover the entirety of networked computers and devices.

ocsinventory needs php71, so it is not more compatible for ns7, for testing purpose you can upgrade php to 7.3 at your own risks, nethgui is not fully compatible with php > 5.6

yum install http://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/remi-release-7.rpm
yum install nethserver-ocsinventory --enablerepo=ocsinventory,stephdl,remi-php73,remi

Please note this as experimental!!

OCS version 2.7 is no more working on NS7 with remi php7.3, so you have to install the last working version 2.6 (added by flatspin 25.06.2020)

yum install http://mirror.de-labrusse.fr/NethServer/7/x86_64/nethserver-stephdl-1.1.0-1.ns7.sdl.noarch.rpm
yum install https://rpms.remirepo.net/enterprise/remi-release-7.rpm
yum install https://rpm.ocsinventory-ng.org/ocsinventory-release-latest.el7.ocs.noarch.rpm
