I want to have my Kbox immediately launch an installation for drivers when the computer is inventoried. I have setup a lable to query for the model number of the pc. How would I make this so that it dynamically will just load the drivers as soon as it checks in?

You need to go to Distribution -> Dell Updates and configure a schedule for "Inventory and Update". Apply the schedule to your label.

so by applying the schedule for say the 1st of every month at midnight. If its curerntly 3:00PM on the fifth of the month, does it wait until the 1st or run immediately?

Some background is that we are deploying several models with the 2000 and installing the 1000 agent. I can keep the image thin and just let the Kbox apply drivers ideally. But it needs to be instantaneous to the initial inventory.

If the schedule is monthly they won't update until the next occurrence. The shortest interval for the patching schedule is every 1 hour which could be applied to a label of a small set of computers for your initial push.

I don't think this will accomplish what you are looking for, however, since the Dell patching will compare what is already installed to what is recommended. As I understand it that will not install drivers if they are missing completely.

I haven't used it, so I can't speak from experience. I would assume that the way it's laid out you cannot accomplish what you're looking for. You could set the schedule to the same interval as your client check-in, but even that wouldn't necessarily trigger the Dell inventory/update when the client checks in.

You may want to submit a support ticket to receive a definitive answer from KACE.
