Hi guys,

Its almost 2016 and I wish you the best of merriments.

I am trying to deploy the agent via group policy, using the

" K1000 GPO Provisioning Tool". First time using it !!

I want to know if the policy will leave all pc's with the agent

already installed....... or will it do the installation all over again

regardless??

I already have several hundred machines with the agent already

installed  earlier using other methods and would not like them

all to be reinstalled again as this would clog up the network.

Any thoughts or suggestions

Thanks

Based on my experience, it does not reinstall on a client that has that same version.

  • Rockhead44 is correct, it does not reinstall on a client with the same version.

    Just be aware, I made the mistake of using an existing GPO to implement with; I would not do that again as there is no way to modify the GPO settings for the KACE install after that - create a brand new one and use that to deploy the agent.

    • Hey jfrank
      Just referred to this old post for a little help.
      I want to know the procedure for updating the group policy itself when a new agent is available.
      Do I just replace the agent exe file in the netlogon folder, with the new agent........
      OR do I have to build a new group policy again with the new agent.
      Thanks again
  • Thanks for the quick response guys... Cheers

    • In my case, I always replace the old agent .msi with the new one and keep the same GPO.

I am not known with the K1000 agent.
But I am with GPO package deployment, it is not great!

In the case I used it for:
SCCM environment but no scope on the XP machines (was a few years ago).
I was unable to use a MSI, that should make it easier if you have the option.

So I finally ended up deploying a REG string that deploys a RUNONCE from a network location (with GPO you have limited network network domain access).
That execute the setup, the setup did not redeploy if already installed, so remember to check that!
Also remember the RUNONCE will get re-added as it is a GPO, so remove it later.
