We have some computers that do not have the KACE agent installed. In the past, the people using the system always installed in manually.

How can I find these systems that dont have it installed, and push the agent to them individually from the server?

If all of the machines are in the same subnet you can specify a provisioning schedule to scan the IP addresses and install the agent on machines that need it. Go to Settings, K1000 Agent, Advanced Provisioning.

  • Thanks for your answer. I'm very new to this so even the obvious solutions are a huge help!

    Follow up question - Do the computers being scanned need to be on my domain to have the agent installed?

    Also, instead of doing this automatically on a schedule, can I use the "Single Machine Provisioning"? I'm trying to do this for testing purposes.
    • The computers don't need to be a domain member but you do need an account with admin privileges to perform the install. If you don't have a domain account on all of the machines or a standard admin account throughout your network then setting up a provisioning schedule will be difficult, since you can only store one username/password for KACE to attempt the install.

      Yes, you can do single machine provisioning for one machine at a time. I use that frequently when I find computers without the agent.
      • OK I gave the single machine provision a try on my test machine. It said it worked, but I don't see it installed. in the provision log, it seems to have skipped step 2.
      • Can you take a screen shot of the provisioning log and paste it here?
      • I got it to work! It was the lack of an admin password, it seems like. But after doing that, I was able to push to the individual computer. now to test with a range of IPs. Thank you for your help.
