Managed Installation - With File-Download in Background

Hello everybody,

maybe you noticed that when running a managed installtion "after login" or "at bootup" that the associated zip-file gets downloaded when the managed installation gets executed.

This could take a plenty amount of time - especially when you have clients outside your organization which download the files with small bandwidth. - We have configured the max downloadrate to 500 kb/s for KACE, so that we do not overload our internet connection...

It would be good, if the files get downloaded in the background and after the download is finished, the managed-installation will be executed.

This feature has already been requested in uservoice, but is still not implemented...

Here is a workaround, where you can implement this feature by yourself:

- First, create a file-synchronisation where the desired file(s) will be sent to the clients. Select a "special" (unique) path, where the files will be unzipped
- Create a Custom Inventory, which scans if a specific file exists in the "special path"
- Create a smart-label, where the query-criteria selects the created custom inventory
- Create a managed-installation where you deploy on the created smart label.

With this chain implemented, you can control that the download will be done first, and after the download is finished, the managed installation will be done.
