How do I enable the built in VNC server in OS 10.x and set a password? I don't believe the wizard in KACE does the trick

It's a shell command. If you've got a kbox, it's a one-line script.

/System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/ARDAgent.app/Contents/Resources/kickstart -configure -activate -access -on -clientopts -setvnclegacy -vnclegacy yes -setvncpw -restart -agent -vncpw admin

The -vncpw flag sets the password. In the example, it is the last flag and it sets the password to "admin"
