Hi there hoping to use managed install to throw CS5 on a machine. Is there a file limit the zip is over 3 GB and it looks like it uploads but then says file size is 0KB

Thanks,
Answer Summary:
There's a file size limit of 2gb (it's a web interface limitation). You need to use the clientdrop samba share to upload the file. Simple go to \\kbox\clientdrop and put the file there and then import the file into kace.

  • Can anyone explain how to import a large file into K1000? I've gotten the zip to the clientdrop share, but don't know where to go from there.

Yes, there is a limit; I usually think of it as ~1 - 1.5GB. The web interface (because of the browser) can't accept really large files, so those have to be put on the client share and associated. That said, I've found in past versions (haven't tried with the latest agent) that the agent can't handle the really large files either (I tried a 2GB AutoCAD install, and it failed).

My work around was to put the installer on a network share, then use an MI with just a batch file that ran it from the network (I lucked out in that I didn't need the program at any remote sites).

You could also just use an alternative download site in the distribution or break the zip file into multiple files and merge them together with a script.

For those who want to use package management method, I have written a doco. I hope it helps.

You can also specify a file location off of the KBOX. This is generally not recommended, but if you were to do it you would really want to limit the number of depoyments you do this way. Preferred method is by K1000 proper or a replication share.
