Just curious, but If I roll out Kace Agent 5.4.10x via GPO to some machines that have 5.4.5 and aren't accounted for in the inventory, will it just overwrite the old installation?

The 5.4.10x Agent will overwrite the old agent. But when you add the 5.4.10x software package you can remove the old 5.4.5 agent and select that it be uninstalled immediately, rather than leave it on and just not install it anymore if you're concerned about it.

  • Ah yes, I see now! Thanks for the help!
    • Not a problem. don't forget to Run the script on the 5.4.10x agent to make sure it is in English. #2.2 in this guide: http://www.itninja.com/blog/view/how-to-update-gpo-kace-agent
  • Oh, what is it set to by default then?
    • Chinese, for some reason.When you upload it into GPO check the properties on it and on the first page it'll tell you what language it's using.

If you already have an agent installed, the K1000 has a built in update feature.  You would need to modify the GPO to reflect the new version for new provisioning.

Upload the agent update kbin file to the location below:



Settings>K1000 Agent>Agent Updates from KACE>Upload K1000 Agent Update Files

How to enable automatic agent upgrades:

Settings>K1000 Agent>Agent Updates from KACE>Enabled

Also check the box for "Update Broken Agents".

PLEASE NOTE: If you have multiple organizations, you will need to do this for each one.

  • Hey Jknox,

    I'm aware of the update feature and provisioning :)

    The reason I need to roll it out is that an admin rolled out the Agent to different machines manually and never updated all of them, this left me with machines that were on different versions. Because many of the machines in the Inventory where outdated with only a few still in use, I decided to start fresh and roll it out to all the machines currently in use via GPO.
