I have the xml files for the start menu and taskbar that we would like all users to have. But my question is whats the best way to get the KACE K2000 to deploy this.

Kind Regards

If you don't want to Import from the NAS or put the files on the machine before hand. Zip up your Layout.xml with a Powershell script containing

Import-StartLayout -LayoutPath "$PSScriptRoot\Layout.xml" -MountPath C:\

$PSScriptRoot calls the Directory that it's in.

Once you have the XML file you created and on the system you can run this PowerShell script through Kace:

Import-StartLayout –LayoutPath <path><file name>.xml –MountPath %systemdrive%

We use File Synchronization to get the XML file onto any Win10 machine, but then do the actual "enforcement" through GPO. 

Here is some more info on the XML file/PowerShell command if needed:
