Jagadeish the link you sent me done the trick. Thank you very much! Is it at all possible to queue the post installations up? or does KACE do this automatically, so multiple installs are happening at once?

  • The tasks are set to deploy in the order you configure them in the post install task section. You don't want tasks to run at the same time, as this will cause conflicts and/or failures. This is why we always recommend using start /wait before any setup.exe deployment.

    Also, the 1.5Gb is a php limitation.

Use the Kace 1000 to do a post install.

Of note, you may also want to check why the files are so large.  I'm not sure about Lotus Notes, but I know our Office Pro Plus 2010 installation with Service Pack 1 is still only 1 GB, and we do use a significant portion of the suite.  Make sure you don't have extra items there that you could allow users to install if required instead.  This is one of the few installations where we don't delete the installation files when it is complete such that we can easily add additional functionality later if necessary.  Cutting out unnecessary Office components will greatly reduce deployment time.

You would leave the package as a zip file then setup a managed install on the K1000. You can then export the package from the K1000 and import the packaged on k2000.  Then you could use the k2000 to perform the post install task or you could just the K1000 to push the install out.
