Description Jens Thorp-Hansen univentionstaff 2017-03-20 12:03:59 CET
clean up scripts for the exam mode do not clean up the "exam mode group" both on the master and school slaves. The clients have to be removed manually.

The users are removed correctly from the exam group but the computer accounts are still left within the exam group.
Comment 2 Daniel Tröder univentionstaff 2017-09-13 18:30:38 CEST
Added --skip-exam-computer-removal to skip removal of all computer accounts from the exam groups of all schools. Otherwise it will be done by default.

Reopened to check, if finish() does or doesn't always remove computer accounts.

The UMC command unset_computerroom_exammode / finish_exam() does remove the computer objects from the exam group as long as it knows the room it was conducted in.

The information that an exam took place is stored in a file. If that file was somehow corrupted or deleted, the information would be lost.

Only in the case that this information was lost, would the the added cleanup function actually do something the unset_computerroom_exammode would not have already done.
So IMHO it does make sense to include it, because the whole point of this script is to handle "something that shouldn't be".

Comment 7 Florian Best univentionstaff 2017-10-09 12:34:07 CEST
OK: Looks good now. The hosts are removed from the exam group afterwards.
