I have a client with (2) seperate fully disassociated KACE K1000 appliances.  One is on a "protected" network that has no path to the internet.  Is it possible (if I made the necessary LAN changes) to tell one K1000 that the other K1000 is it's master for knowing about patches and using it for it's download source?  This was simple in WSUS world where you'd "link" the servers and point your clients to the proper system.  The intent is to have the isolated K1000 (which again has no relationship with the other) never need to talk to the internet for patch database or content.

Yes, you define the one system as online KACE and download there all patches.
Then you import the patches on the other KACE which is defined as offline KACE.

  • Go to SETTINGS->Patch Settings (scroll down)
  • I am not in front of it now but you can do this with KACE appliances that are not under the same KACE account/organization?
    • Yes, it should be possible assuming the one you choose as online downloads the patches necessary for the offline K1000: http://blog.kace.com/2012/04/06/how-to-offline-patching/
