I am very new to Kace.  The company I work for wanted to run a vbs script to gather the profile size on all the computers so that we could have an estimated deployment time for that. 

So I created a very simple vbs script to run and just gather the computer name and display a window.  When I try to run this through our K1000, it just runs forever. 

So my question is, how to stop this from running? 

It doesn't time out (currently this script has been running for 3 days).

are you running this as a distribution or a kscript?

  • A Kscript.
  • you should be able to uncheck enabled and under scheduling choose don't run on a schedule and save to stop it from deploying automatically.
    What settings does it have set here currently. Ones like that we do not usually schedule we just add the machines that we want and do a run now. may take a few days to get all machines but prevents running it again and again on same machine.
  • I was told that it has to be enabled to run.
    I have Don't run on a Schedule checked off.
    I have the script deployed to only one machine
    It has been running 7 days now. It never successfully completes, it's status is always "running"
  • It is an offline KScript right now.
  • We have even restarted our K1000 box and they are still running.
    • Did you get it resolved, Sir?
  • Well, I am not a Sir and no I never did get an answer to this. Since then we have re-imaged the Kbox. If you wish to close this thread at there is nothing helpful here, please do so.
    • Sorry I did not follow this thread.
      This is for Windows 7 machines:
      To stop a script loop like this you need to go to C:\ProgramData\Dell\KACE\scripts on the effected machine(s) look for the directory that matches the number of the script on the script menu page (hover over script and look at bottom of page) and delete it. You can even create a kscript to verify this dir exists and then delete it.
