Why it's important to keep your K1000 up to date

It’s important to keep your system at the latest version for a few different reasons.  Having the newest version of the K1000 will enable you to download patches and have the latest fixes and enhancements for the most current version.  Fixes to older versions are at our discretion.  We put most of our resources on the most recent product releases in order to continually improve and enhance the value of our software.  If you are on an older version, we encourage you to upgrade to the currently supported version of the software to be able to get the best support available.  Our support policy is to provide support on both the current and one version prior of our products.

We will provide full support of our software for 60 days following a release of the newest version, at which time it will go to limited support.

We will provide limited support for our product for 60 days after the release of our most current software, at which time it will become discontinued.

Deep Freeze and Kace Scripting


Windows 10 client machine. From a command prompt, when attempting to thaw or freeze a machine using the DFC program. (This would be part of a KACE script file). The format of the command is "DFC password /boothawed" or "DFC password /bootfrozen".

In either case, the machine comes back with an error message: "Internal error executing command."

This is a bug within Deep Freeze - their developers are working on the issue.

So - the short answer (right now) is that if you have a Windows 10 machine, you can't make a KACE script that will thaw or freeze a machine.  :(

First set the password for the clientdrop share by:

  1. 1100: go to Settings->Security Settings
    1200: go to Settings->General Settings->Samba Share Settings (each ORG has it's own settings)
  2. turn on "edit mode"
  3. enable the share
  4. set the password

Via Explorer

You can browse to Tools-> Map a Network Drive and choose the option to "Connect Using a Different User Name"

Via Command Line

Note that the password (pa55w0rd) in the below examples is not the default and can be set in your general settings in the areas mentioned above.

net use * \\k1000\clientdrop /user:admin admin

If that fails then try three commands in order to delete old entries and recreate a new one:

net use \\k1000\clientdrop /delete
net use \\k1000\client /delete
net use * \\k1000\clientdrop /user:admin pa55w0rd

KACE: K1000 Setting your KBOX Web Server Name

  • Summary: The K1000 appliance Web Server name can be set up in the Kbox
  • Symptoms: If you've reimaged your kbox or setting up your kbox for the first time
  • Cause: Needing instructions on doing this if not familiar with the process
  • Steps to resolve issue:

The K1000 appliance Web Server Name can be set on the Settings \ Control Panel\Network settings area. if you have a K1200 appliance, then this is in the "SYSTEM" organization.

Your webserver name should have the same domain name suffix as specified in your "Domain".

If it is not then you might end up with name resolutions like k1000.company.com.internal.company.com

If you have an internal DNS name that is different from your web server name then you should change your internal DNS to allow both names.
