Im still using this command to install the install the Agent via K2000 post install task:

mkdir -p "/Library/Application Support/Dell/KACE/data" ; echo "host=example.k1000.com" > "/Library/Application Support/Dell/KACE/data/amp.conf" ; sleep 15 ; /usr/sbin/installer -pkg "AMPAgent.pkg" -target /

It creates the folder but some of the files are not copied and agent will need to be installed manually. this only happends with OS 10.9

  • Does it not work with the built in example?

I assume you are putting the name of your K1000 in place of 'example.k1000.com'.

The installer for both WIndows an Mac really just installs the minimum. Then, the initial connection to the k1000 installs the rest of the files, does the check in, etc. 

Is AMPAgent running as a process after the install? Do the amp.conf and amp.log files offer any clues?

  • We had to clear the Agent from the server, then uploaded it on more time. once that was done, we duplicated the post task no changes at all and now it is working. Have no idea way it was deploying correctly on older OS versions, but not on 10.9.x until the we did all that.

    Also the built in example didn't work for us.

    Thank you!
