Is it possible to force an inventory update to run from the computer and not wait for the KBOX to do it? The reason I ask is that after imaging a computer it receives a new name via a post install task on the KBOX 2000. Problem is that on the KBOX 1000 that computer is still shown with the random name given before the system renames it to what I want. I do not want to have to wait for the agent to run its next scheduled scan as this may be a few hours.

Run KBScriptRunner.exe, and it will perform a check-in.

C:\Program Files (x86)\KACE\KBOX\kbscriptrunner.exe or [font="times new roman"]C:\Program Files\KACE\KBOX\kbscriptrunner.exe depending on your OS architecture.

You can also use the pre-built "force check-in" script as well and target a label or a specific machine.

thanks to both of you for your help, I think we have it working well now. Basically we use the breadcrumb technique to create a registry key on the system while it is being imaged. We then have a smart label that looks for that key on a system. So when the forced checkin happens our final build script is run and also change the custom key to a new value which will then remove the smart label and not allow the script or the forced checkin to run again.

Hi there, Im trying to setup full deploy with kbox- sorry Im not on the technical level to understand waht a breadcrumb technique is, or how, but Im having problems once ive deployed an image to a machine including install kbox agent as a post install task via kbox2000 - how do I force it to run an inventory and report in straightaway? ive tried manually testing with kbscriptrunner - this doesnt seem to update the k1000 inventory in any way. Also, where and what is the 'force check in script?"
any assistance appreciated

update -
I think I've seen a probable cause - i took the default postinstall task provided in k2000 and updated the agent version to latest exe - just realised the install switches need to be changed to my kbox server! (WOOPS!) . But is there any switch/script line that can be added to this to force inventory reporting?

davrog - Please use the K2000 forums for this; but the short answer is yes, and it's kbscriptrunner.

When I do a force check in - I'm going
C:\Program Files\Dell\KACE\runkbot.exe 6 0 in the command prompt is this the same thing?

  • 'runkbot 1 0' does bootstrap,
    'runkbot 4 0' does check in/inventory,
    'runkbot 6 0' does managed installs and file syncs
