My scripted installations are generally successful, but in the deployment log reports, the "Deploy Completed" is empty. Is there a setting I need to fix?

Did you tell the machine to restart after deployment or just shut it down?   I get no completed when I do not restart automatically and shut them down.   Does the deployed machine work that is not logged?

The other thing that may be an issue is that you are not properly identifying the criteria to prove to the KACE that there is a valid deployment.  Your software would still run, but the deployment would consider itself failed and attempt to run again.  If you have a custom inventory rule, check that it is working properly.  If you have selected specific software in the KACE, make sure that the version is still a valid match.  The easiest way to do this is to deploy your software to a machine, and to select that software from the inventory of that machine.

Thanks for the responses.

cmal: The clients restart and auto login per my setup with no problem.

phil: Is there a custom inventory rule on the 2000?  I'm not calling the 1000 for any part of the scripted install.

Cory: Where would I find the kb2kping call? I don't see it in the xml file, so maybe I need to add it manually? The script wizard has been problematic, so I've had to add or fix several other things in the xml file it spits out.

Thanks.

  • Is Kcleanup running and deleting the c:\kace directory?

On a scripted install, the completed time doesn't register until the post install tasks have completed, specifically you'll find kb2kping (or something similar) is called to run before kcleanup from the \kace\bin directory.
