Does anybody know , how to pull the file from any system using KACE.

Pushing of file there is multiple option, but sometime there is a requirement of pulling the file while doing configuration management.

To pull a file, meaning to let the "server" copy a file, right?

My knowledge of KACE is limited, but I know from server-client deployment environment this is not how it works.
The agent/client will pull down from the server and report/push back to server.
The server will only create action policies or tasks for the agent to do.
When the computer turn on, the agent reports and will get "things" to do, like installing software or apply some GPO.
This saves stress on the server side as every client will manage itself.

So I guess you can only create a task/rule/policy in KACE, where the KACE agent (client side) will push the file to the server.

  • My Requirement is to pull back a configuration file of apache server running in multiple server and it should show the file on Dell KACE console, I can modify the corresponding server file and push back to the system.
    • Dell KACE does not have a function for displaying/modifing a file. I would suggest the "File Synchronization" function or create a script that utilizes XCOPY with the /mir switch.
This might work.  In the tasks section the Upload a file option will allow you to upload a file from the client to the K1000.When files are uploaded to the K1000 as part of a script they should appear in the Inventory>Software there's an "Uploaded Files" area that should contain a link to the file that was uploaded for that machine.
