Hi Team,

I have been advised that the limitation for a file being uploaded to the KACE system is 1.5GB, is there anyway around this?
I wish to upload a copy of AutoDesk 2013 onto our KACE 1000 server for deployment as we have nowhere else to store this.

Any ideas my wonderful associates?

The limit is approximately 2047MB depending on the browser being used to upload the file.  It's actually a limitation of PHP: https://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=44522

If your file is larger than that, the only way to store it on the K1000 is to upload it to the clientdrop folder (\\yourK1name\clientdrop).  Once uploaded, it will be available in the client folder.

Look in the K1000 admin guide on how to set up the permissions for clientdrop. I don't remember if it explains the relationship between client and clientdrop, but figure that they are basically the same folder where client is read-only, clientdrop is write.

To deploy it, you would modify this example to point to the client folder on your K1000: http://www.kace.com/support/resources/kb/article/how-to-setup-alternate-download-location

Burn it to dvd and mount it on a server and share it that way if you do not have drive space.  Our administrative Autocad install is 3.8 gig in size.

  • I hadn't thought of trying that. That's a great workaround.
    • a little slower but its does the job.

  • This is a good example of a K2000 alternate download configuration.
