We're kinda running out of space on our virtual K1000 that assigned only 250gb to it self without letting us change it if I recall correctly (I wasn't the one to install it so can't confirm on that)

Anyways, I'd like to know, is there a way to keep all the patches on a external network share rather than having them on the Kbox? I've been pointed in the direction of the replication feature but I'm not quite sure if it let's me save space on the K1000.

Apparently the remaining 75gb we've got left aren't enough for Win XP SP3 patches.

Any info on this is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

There isn't currently a way to move patches externally and use them through the patching service. 

External shares for patching has been suggested previously: http://kace.uservoice.com/forums/82699-k1000/suggestions/2501597-allow-disk-space-to-be-added-for-patch-definition-

Also, if your VM server can handle a 500GB VM for the K1000, there is one available. Submit a ticket to KACE support to get it.

  • Apologies for resurrecting an old post, but is there still not a way to increase the size of a current K!000 vM? Or do we have to download a specific one from KACE?
    • From what I remember, the disk size is hard coded, so you can't add space to it. You would have to install a specific OVF version. In the past, the size was 250GB and you could upgrade to 500GB. At this point, I believe only 500GB versions are available.
