KACE Product Support Question

Get/Set Computer Name

06/04/2015 1672 views
I have been wrestling with this for months, trying to get this to work in our environment so I seriously need help!

I uploaded the latest version of GetComputerName_64.exe and my parameter is as follows:

net use g: "\\server\share\Kace\Get_Set_Computer_Name" /user:hawaiicounty\username password g: getcomputername_x64.exe /dialog

It is the first pre-install task in my scripted installation.  However, I get "the system cannot find the file specified".  When I run the parameters in the command line window, it works fine.

Can someone please, please, tell me what I am doing wrong?  Thanks!

Hi chucksteel,

You gave me a brilliant idea and I recreated my getcomputername as a BAT file and it worked!  Thanks!

It looks like you're trying to run it as a script when you should be using it as an application. Upload the executable to the K2000 as an application and use the following for the parameter:
getcomputername_x64.exe /dialog

  • I did create an application and did use the getcomputername_x64.exe /dialog parameter but got the same error message.
