Pushing very large file via K1000 to 100+ machines - with deployment window.
Hi again guys,
Thank you to all in this forum that have assisted us in our KACE product. I have another question that I'm hoping someone has run into.
We have a very large file we're going to be pushing out to over 100+ machines (it's a setup.exe file, but clocks in at around 1GB in space). My goal is to setup a deployment of this software to the machine, and have the deployment window set to 12am - 6am.
As the majority of the machines are offsite, and not directly connected to our LAN (most connections will occur over our 100Mbps WAN link) - how will deployment work? Will machines attempt to download and install the setup.exe file during the 12-6am window and if the download is not completed by 6am, it proceeds to pause until the next deployment window (my ideal scenario)? I understand with this deployment window it may take a day or two to hit all the machines, but I'm just curious how KACE handles deployment windows and large files going out to machines.
Any insight or experience is greatly appreciated!
