Force Start A Managed Install
08/31/2018 806 views
How can I force a managed install to start? I have it setup and keep hitting run now but it just keeps listing a list of the computers and "Not Installed". I put in completion and starting messages to see if I can notice them starting but I cant seem to get it to go. Deployment Window I opened up, narrowed down, and opened back up and that's not effecting it.

There are a few ways to do this.
Like you said, the Run Now button on the MI page.
Managed Installs run at Inventory time, so you could use the Force Inventory button on a specific computer's Inventory page.
You can force it by manually running the script that it executes at install time by running C:\Program Files (x86)\Quest\KACE\runkbot.exe 6 0 (6 is the script to run MIs) If you want to make a script for that in KACE, it'd be:
runkbot.exe” with params “6 0”.
That said, I don't know if that answers your question, because when you say the "Deployment Window" opens, it sounds like the MI might be running, but not completing.
Doing a runkbot 6 0 from a command prompt will display what's logged in KUser.log, so you don't have to go hunt through it, so you can see if it's actually running, running and completing, or hanging.
Have you successfully used the command to perform the installation you have set up in the MI outside of KACE?
