Open Source Mobile Device Management?

I would like to ask if someone of you know an open source MDM and if we could use it under NS ?


Now that would be an interesting functionality. I know Meraki but it is a commercial, cloud based system by cisco. maybe there is something similar available as open source solution…


Furthermore this one looks interesting:


Rob this looks very nice, thank you for the infos. :grinning: - FLYVE MDM - How it works

Looking forward to your howto on installing it on NS with the GLPI module… :smiley:
Only thing that concerns me a bit is the need of an agent running on the mobile device. For corporate mobile devices this isn’t a problem but I see great opportunities in BYOD (bring your own device) environments. But in BYOD scenario’s, an agent running on a personal phone or tablet might be a problem.

This would be the main target for me but lets see how it works…

Is it possible to update GLPI to ver 9.2.1 ?

@stephdl, is it possible to give your GLPI module an update?

I’m based on epel, where I could find the version 9.2.1 @fausp

I found 9.2 in remi repo:

yum --enablerepo=remi,remi-test install glpi

my concern is the remi-test

You need to install php56 , definitively no way

First, you need to install a version of PHP ≥ 5.6, following the Wizard explanation (installation as Single version), then

So is this the end for the Flyve MDM Plugin for GLPI on NethServer ?

My Version:
    [root@infra02 ~]# php -r \@phpinfo\(\)\; | grep 'PHP Version' -m 1
    PHP Version => 5.4.16

You could look after php ugrade and find if the way is conform to your needs

Normally we use php software collection, but here the rpm calls the php56 as dependencies, therefore no chance to get it easily

Nextcloud shows me:


7.1.8 ?

Nextcloud 13 uses PHP 7.1 via FPM with the package nethserver-rh-php71-php-fpm.

You may try to install nethserver-rh-php56-php-fpm and change the glpi httpd conf to use it but I don’t know if it works, never tried:

<FilesMatch \.php$>
            SetHandler "proxy:fcgi://"

Or use php-scl, then you have to set the port to 9056.


I just tried it and it seems to work.

Install everything needed:

yum --enablerepo=remi,remi-test install glpi nethserver-mysql rh-php56-php-mysql rh-php56-php-mbstring rh-php56-php-gd

In the /etc/httpd/conf.d/glpi.conf add the above snippet to the two <directory> directives and allow your clients ip to install:

<Directory /usr/share/glpi>
    Options None
    AllowOverride Limit Options FileInfo

    <IfModule mod_authz_core.c>
        Require all granted
    <IfModule !mod_authz_core.c>
        Order deny,allow
        Allow from all

    <FilesMatch \.php$>
            SetHandler "proxy:fcgi://"


<Directory /usr/share/glpi/install>
    # Install is only allowed via local access (from the GLPI server).
    # Add your IP address if you need it for remote installation,
    # but remember to remove it after installation for security.

    <IfModule mod_authz_core.c>
        # Apache 2.4
        Require local
    <IfModule !mod_authz_core.c>
        # Apache 2.2
        Order Deny,Allow
        Deny from All
        Allow from
        Allow from ::1

    ErrorDocument 403 "<p><b>Restricted area.</b><br />Only local access allowed.<br />Check your configuration or contact your administrator.</p>"

    <IfModule mod_php5.c>
        # migration could be very long
        php_value max_execution_time 0
        php_value memory_limit -1

    <FilesMatch \.php$>
            SetHandler "proxy:fcgi://"


Then restart the services:

systemctl restart httpd
systemctl restart rh-php56-php-fpm

Then browse to https://YOURNETHSERVER/glpi and install…


Awesome, you are working like a machine… :sweat_smile:

I wil try that out, maybe tomorrow… Thank you very much…

sure that your VM is not upgraded to php56, I got this following your commands

You are right, I missed the remi repo install and so the epel version was taken. My fault. Sorry @fausp, this does not help you. Nethserver requires php54 and gpli wants php56 so I have no solution at the moment.

I know remi (thank to the fosdem) if he uses the php56 and not the software collection (He is one of the best contributors), he surely gets a good reason
