You are supposedly able to use WSUS Server to deploy the Windows 10 Pro upgrade to your domain computers, but since we use a K1000 for this function, I was wondering if there was a way to deploy the update in the same manner you would as a WSUS server? 

I have tried making an install from the Windows 10 media creation tool, but it times out before I can upload the zipped file to the Kace.

Any help would be appreciated.

  • I am also wondering the same thing. I posted on another question about it. I heard mention of using the K1000 for Windows 10 in place upgrade at Dell World but the procedures weren't shown.
  • There is an upload limit of about 2GB on web uploads. To add files larger than that to a software title you can mount the \\kace\clientdrop share using the SAMBA password. Files there should appear in the dropdown when editing a software title.
    • Thanks for that info. Any info about the Windows 10 in place upgrade they discussed at Dell World?

I have successfully done this in combination with MDT and a custom rules file. 

Sample script

net use * \\wds\deploymentshare$ /user:HISDTECHGUY PASSWORD
cscript \\wds\deploymentshare$\scripts\litetouch.wsf /rulesfile:"\\HISD\installers\Windows OS\Windows 10\Install\capsettings.ini"

not really supported I guess but does work for windows 10 upgrades as well as Windows 7 refreshes if you set your rules file up properly.

Pretty sure the Win 10 update is blocked by WSUS though ;)

Also you can run this powershell script using Kace on the machine
