Hello,

I am trying to use the ES1_OfflineAccess.exe uploaded to the K1000 with these parameters and I get nothing:

/S /V"/qn /l*v C:\EMC_OfflineAccess.log INSTALLDIR=\"C:\Program Files\EMC\SourceOne\" EX_BACKEND_SERVER=1 EX_TCP_PRIMARY_SERVER=messagearchive.company.com EX_TCP_PRIMARY_PORT=8001 EX_TCP_SECONDARY_SERVER=messagearchive.company.com EX_TCP_SECONDARY_PORT=8002 REBOOT=ReallySuppress"

Is there any way to put this much info while using "Configure Manually" and checking "DO not prepend msiexec"? I am assuming that this is too much for the K1000 to handle.

Can I do this through the "Scripting" tab instead?

Thank you,

JC

Answer Summary:
You would run the batch file, but I don't think there is a way to make it silent unless you can port the output. Something like: file.bat > c:\programdata\dell\kace\fileoutput.txt

  • When I said that I am assuming that this is too much for the K1000 to handle, I meant the syntax. I know it is trying to config an .exe on the fly and it doesn't seem to cut it with the syntax I have been trying. Ideally, I would like this to be silent and not get prompted by Next, Next, install location, server ports and location, Finish. I can run this as a batch script and it works perfect.

    That is why I was wondering if there was a way to upload the .bat to the Scripting portion of the K1000. I just don't know what I would need to do for "Dependencies" or "Tasks" in that tab. I need to get this out by December 15th (tomorrow would be better!), but I have been fighting this. I still have WinInstall in my environment too, but wasn't sure if you KACE gurus out there can point me in the right direction! You guys are amazingly knowledgeable and I always get great feedback.

    Thanks again and sorry for the less than thorough initial question. I was running late for a meeting.

I don't see the exectuable in that string.  Could you take a screenshot of your actual configuration and post it here? 

Also, have you enabled debug?  The logs might be helpful here.

You can use a .bat file in either a MI or a kscript.  If using a MI, just create a new zip file with the .bat and the executable at the root of the zip.

  • I am sorry. The .exe was in the first line of the question. I will try to get the screenshot ASAP. If I zip the .bat and .exe, what command do I use to run them? Are there any switches needed?

      • I can do it completely silent using my .bat file, but how do I deploy that from the K1000? It wants Dependencies and Tasks and I am not quite sure what to put in those fields especially when the .bat contains everything I need.

        Thank you for the replies by the way! I appreciate taking the time to help us konfused ones (keeping it authentic to all things KACE) :)
