Can I force a Mac to do an Inventory Update from command line?

07/17/2012 14296 views

I found this command to do a Mac Inventory Update.

sudo /Library/Application\ Support/Dell/KACE/bin/runkbot 4 0
but it does not work.
kbot[4:1287165600] @ 2012-07-17T16:05:55 (activity) Launching program: '/Library/Application Support                          /Dell/KACE/bin/KDeploy' '-custominventory' wait='true'
sh: /Library/Application Support/Dell/KACE/bin/KDeploy: No such file or directory
kbot[4:1287165600] @ 2012-07-17T16:05:55 (output) ProcessOps_LaunchProgram: Launch failed: 1 exitCod                          e=127
Indeed KDeploy is missing from the bin folder. Is this normal?

To force an inventory on MAC you need to run 

sudo /Library/Application\ Support/Dell/KACE/bin/runkbot 2 0

kbot 4 is for Windows Inventory only

kbot 2 is for Mac and Linux Inventory

  • Is there a equivalent to 6 0 on the windows side for forcing MI run on a mac?

  • runkbot 3 0 // Update kbots cache
  • Thanks for that tip.
    Still, it doesn't force the Deployment like runbot.exe 6 0 does on a Win box.
