I really need some help deploying the dell CCTK configuration file to workstations using the k1000. Here's what I have:

  • The latest K1000 version and the latest agent version (as of 10/06/11)
  • I have already figured out how to deploy the Dell CCTK client to workstations using the Distribution>managed installation section of K1000
  • I have installed Dell CCTK version 2.0.1 on my PC and created a multi-platform bios file (enabling WOL)
  • I exported those settings as a .cctk
  • I deployed the CCTK client using the kbox to a machine
  • I can't figure how to deploy the configuration file
The user's guide for the Dell CCTK says to deploy the configuration file just type cctk -i <filename> so I tried using the "issue a DOS command" script in the Scripts section of the K1000 with the following settings:
  • Enabled = yes
  • Deploying to just the one PC that I know has the Dell CCTK client installed
  • Run as: domain administrator (credentials entered correctly)
  • Task1 = I tried this 2 different ways:
  • 1) Launch “SYS\cmd.exe” with params “"C:\Program Files\Dell\CCTK\X86\cctk.exe" -i \\share\folder\config.cctk
  • 2) Run the batch file...Batch file:="C:\Program Files\Dell\CCTK\X86\cctk.exe" -i \\share\folder\config.cctk
Both of these ways did not work. I set an alert on the script to tell me when it's running and that worked but then the script would do nothing on the machine. The Run Now Status on the K1000 would say:
  • Pushed 1/1
  • Completed 0/1
  • And in the Run Now Detail, next to the name of the computer it's supposed to be running on, it always displays a question mark and a "status pending" message. I don't see any other logs or anything. But it does display all this in the Run Now Detail as well:

  • Start Time:Oct 06 2011 11:28:21 AM
    Script Name:Configure Bios after CCTK install
    Total Machines:1
    Pushed Machines:1 (100%)
    Push Successes:1 (100%)
    Push Failures:0 (0%)
    Completed Machines:0 (0%)
    Running Machines:1 (100%)
    Successes:0 (0%)
    Failures:0 (0%)
  • But when I check the BIOS of that machine, no changes have been made.
So, can anyone point me in the right direction or show me what I'm doing wrong? I really appreciate it. Wish I could attack screenshots.

Thank you.
