Is there a way that KACE can auto-detect when a new device has been plugged into my network and automatically attempt to deploy an agent to said device (or notify me that a new device has magically appeared) aside from waiting until the next time a provisioning config set for that subnet runs? Also, instead of running one provisioning config for "10.0.1-255.1-255" which brings up over 65,000 possible ips, i have my provisioning configs set up by subnet (about 19 of them). Is there a better way for KACE to monitor my domain for new devices or a more efficient way of building an advanced provisioning config?

A provisioning config is how you could do this with KBOX. There is also an IP scan which is leaner. You could therefore run it more often. An example, might be an IP that responds to a port scan of 139 but not 52230. Of course this depends upon the client's firewall settings.

Alternatively, if you used Active Directory then you could accomplish this with a group policy that deploys the agent msi.

If you're looking to quickly hit new machines and not use a scheduled providioning job a login script or Group policy are your most likely suspects. Both are documented on Kace.com
