What is the benefit of running an IP Scan on the K1000? How does that information get used or how could I use that to make my life easier, network better in some way?

Honestly most people we know use it to push out agents for the first time. They run a ping against the IP addresses and anything that responds they take the result and push out agents.


Others have used it to see which machines are listening on port 52230 (KACE AMP) port and build a custom report to push out agents. GPO agent install works well here.


Some have used it to detect machines on the network that aren't on the domain. 

Some has used it as their main scanning tool but from our expereince most have had more robust solutions to network scan their enviroment. 

You could use it to see if people are using ports that you know are for P2P or something like that but the scans would have to run frequently and normally that can be blocked at the firewall level if needed.

  • Ah, I hadn't considered the power of being able to ping the ports.

I agree with nshah.  You could also create a label from the ip scan and use it with the K2000 to deploy to a label.

  • How do you access the data after browsing the initial scan report? I expect it to be in computer inventory or something, but I'm not seeing that. Perhaps I don't have the proper search put together.
    • Inventory>IP Scan, place a check mark next to your scan, choose action> view scan inventory, place a check mark next to the computers you want to be a part of the label, choose action, add label, give the label a name and those computers will be part of the label.
