When I run runkbot 2 0 on a client PC with the 6.0.1079 client installed I see the following in the output:

kbot[2:1403008405] @ 2014-07-10T14:40:33 (activity) Launching program: 'C:\Program Files\Dell\KACE\KBoxClient.exe' '-server=,<Removed> -urltype=http -company="Company" -splash="Dell KACE Systems Management Appliance is verifying your PC Configuration and managing software updates.      Please Wait..." -fade=1 -notifyevent=' wait='true'
[2014-07-10.14:40:34][runkbot:CreateProcessWithEnv    ] KLaunch    Error: CreateProcess Failed: (2) The system cannot find the file specified.

KBoxClient is indeed to found, and is not included in the ampagent-6.0.1079-x86 msi package either. 

Am I doing something wrong?

  • All the current .exe files are under c:\programdata\dell\kace and I don't see that there. It may no longer be used with the newer agents.

    What is the objective?

According to this article you are telling the amp agent to connect to your k1000 and run script #2.
You can view script #2 by going to http://yourkboxurl/adminui/kbot.php?ID=2
It doesn't work in our 5.4 environment either.

If all you are trying to do is run inventory try runkbot 4 0.

  • I know what it SHOULD do - pop up a box and then run kupdater - but it seem that BOTH executables are now missing. If that is correct, then soemone needs to update all the KB articles that refer to them!!
    • Looks like they changed it in 5.3
