When do deployments run on the KACE clients
I am trying to test deployments for some packages set to "Execute anytime - Next Available" but they do not install after I force an inventory. For instance I am trying to install the Cisco Anyconnect client which is just a few meg and should take a minute or two to download and install, but it is taking an undetermined amount of time.
I guess I would like to know how to determine when something is going to install and also know where the logs are so I can check for errors for units that do not install the package.

To force a deployment, you can set it to run at "NEXT AVAILABLE TIME" and make sure the pc you want is on the list, then go to your inventory and check mark the PC's you want and force update them. when the update is complete, it will run the deployment.
The reason this is (I BELIEVE): is the kinventory has to be as up to date as possible for the KACE to 1) know that it needs the software and 2) make sure it's not installing with something already ON the machine. These are for the "set to deploy" and go home types.
FYI is a computer is ASLEEP I have found that MSI's that are keyed manually using the UID will still launch but loaded MSI's will not run. Which makes this a pain as WAKE ON LAN is designed to wake a TURNED OFF computer, as there is no "WAKE FROM SLEEP" command. To manage this I sent one guy out to hit the mouse on all the PC's in an area and hit the FORCE UPDATE on all the computers... went to another area and touched the mouse then hit FORCE UPDATE on kace for all those PC's....
PAIN??? YEP. anyways, that's my experience.
