KACE Product Support Question
Emergency Patching and the K1000
I have been playing with patching and distribution to try and get a patch/update to be pushed out within 1-5 minutes but it seems to go at it's own pace which may be 30-40 minutes or and hour.
K1000 and Agents are at current version.

create a label for your patch
create a detect and deploy schedule for your patch
- select your target devices
- select the label for your patch
- select schedule none
- if you use replication shares make sure the patch got replicated before you run the schedule
in Schedules check (click the box) your schedule and choose action run. it runs a detect for the patch first and if needed it deploys the patch.
if you want to use distribution for deploying a fix, it's more work to be done. you'll want to use the distribution method if your patch/fix is not listed in the patch catalog.
either way, there is no way to have something deployed to your devices within 5 minutes. if you push it from your kbox it takes it's time. if you request it from your device (in cmd do a "runkbot 4 0", it's in C:\Programs (x86)\dell\kace) it can happen faster.
