hello, thanks, when creating a host/agent via msi Configurator, how can i hardcode the internet id? having to rely on smtp email, kinda of flaky concept, subject to firewall lockdown. given that the msi Configurator already contacts your server for digital signing, should be easy to set the internet id. thanks, david
Unfortunately, you can’t hardcode an Internet-ID code into a custom installation package. This is due to the fact that a 12-digit Internet-ID code is randomly generated for each Host in order to avoid duplication. As an alternative to the SMTP server, you can also set up an Auto-import feature for your Hosts to be added automatically. However, please note that this feature requires self-hosted RU Server to be set up as both your routing server and sync server for the address book sync.
fwiw, i see no practical difference between generating the id at when creating the .msi versus generating it at run time? in each case, just update your database of ID. really, no chance of running out of IDs with a 12-digit code.
Unfortunately, as of now, there's no feature to generate an Internet-ID code manually. I will, however, forward your suggestion to our developers for a review.
if the install of the host could re-use the id of the agent, then what would solve my issue.
While this is not possible for now, we already have a similar feature in our wishlist that would allow a user to convert their existing Agent into a Host installation - so that should preserve the same Internet-ID code and other settings as well. We plan to add it in one of our future updates, but there's no specific ETA that we can provide on it right now.
