I am trying to get a machine to do a forced inventory check-in after a custom script is run on it, so that the script data appears in the custom inventory section. However, I  cannot get the full path to run the check-in.I keep getting "the system cannot find the path specified". I can get all the way to the kace sub folder, but i cannot seem to get it to then run the kbot part of the command. I have tried with and without quotes before and after the kbot command.

here is the command  found in iT Ninja that does work if I do it in parts, but not as a whole command. 

c:> c:\program files\dell\kace\runkbot 4 0


any help is apprecaited

It probably needs quotes if you are running the command with the path: http://www.kace.com/support/resources/kb/article/how-to-force-a-client-check-in-outside-the-normal-run-interval

"C:\Program Files\Dell\Kace\runkbot.exe" -s 4 0

Is the system 64 bit?  It would be: C:\Program Files (x86)\Dell\KACE\runkbot.exe" -s 4 0

  • no they are 32-bit XP machines. I will try that command and see what happens
    • so that worked-however is there any way to make it silent IE no command prompt appears on the user screen?
      • I'm not aware of a way to make it silent, but if you want to force an update, there is a built in script to do so. I'm pretty sure it's silent.
  • i have seen that too. i was just hoping to get the results of the script right away in the inventory and not have to wait for a check in or do a forced check in, but it looks like I will have to settle for that.

    Thanks for your assistance.
