Force Inventory check-in for all Windows devices after reboot


Is anyone setting up something for the client to check in automatically with Dell Kace each time the client is rebooted?

Should we do this through a group policy login script ?
Or can we create a script to run after a client comes back up from reboot?
Or should we have a script that creates a Scheduled Task that runs the runkbot.exe 4 0 on reboot?

Has anyone done something like this before?

If you really need to set something up from the client side for checking in after it reboots the most effective way to accomplish this that I can think of would involved creating a task (if windows machine), which executes runkbot.exe 4 0. after it reboots. Usually the clients do check in automatically following the time interval set up in the K1000 or when system/devices are shut down completely and then turned back on.

  • We have almost 9000 Windows clients so I set the check-in schedule to be every 24 hours. The automatic check-in after reboot that you mean is when the check-in interval has passed then the client automatically checks in after reboot right? I am currently thinking that I may try using a Windows login script GPO to force the check-in automatically on reboot. - tuyen 4 years ago
    • Correct, the automatic check in following the shut down that I was referring to should occur after the interval set up in the appliance.

      As for your second inquiry, that is doable, if you have the expertise you may go ahead and create it and use the following KB article below as a guide for the runkbot switches:

you can push a kscript to create a registry run entry that will call the kbot on start or restart under the HKLM\software\microsoft\windows\currentversionrun keys
