Would it be possible to schedule updates in the K1000 to run every 1st Monday of the month? I have tried the following Crontab but failed to get it to work. Please Help. 0 3 * * 1 [ `date +\%d` -le 7 ]

I don't believe that there is an easy way to accomplish this. This is the first time that I've seen a function used in a crontab statement, so I have no idea whether that would work on KACE. Does it work someplace else?

There was a post on the old AppDeploy message boards that proposed a way to do this. It was a complicated setup that ran patching every Monday, but it was based on a smart label that would only get applied to machines on the first Monday of the month (although it was based on a different Monday, not the first).

  • Yea, I saw that post, but was hoping to be able to do it this way. The schedule we were trying to achieve would be easier achieved with Crontab but we will have to do it with smart labels. Thank You!
