Scripting Question

How can I schedule a file to be copied over to another computer using Kace1000?

03/05/2015 1741 views
I have 40 computers that need the new ampagent.msi file stored locally on them.  The location is C:\Kace.  Rather than coming in after hours, and logging into each server individually to copy the file, I would like to use a KACE script to copy the file for me at night.  

I currently ran a script last night and it did not work. Do you have any recommendations for me?  I'm new to the scripting.

Type: Online Shell Script
Status: Production
Windows Run As: admin, password: filled out.
Notify: not on
Schedule: everyday at 23:00
Dependency: added/uploaded amp agent from Kace Machine (ampagent-6.3.306-x86_helpdesk.lcu-internal.com.msi)
Script Text:  copy /y ampagent-6.3.306-x86_helpdesk.lcu-internal.com.msi c:\kace
Script File Name: workpls.bat
Timeout (minutes): 10

You shouldn't be using a script to distribute the files.
Setup a File Synchronization under Distributions to push it out.
To do this you will also need to create a "Custom Software Inventory". that contains the file.
You should then be able to have it Sync'd to all of you machines.

  • I have only created a custom software inventory to show which printers are installed on each computer. Do you have any suggestions or links you can share to with me?
    • Create a new one named after the file you want to copy.
      The add the file under "associated files"
      Under rules you might find it helpful to add
      Then under distributions - file syncs you should be able to create a new item.
      In the drop down list associate it with the custom software name you just created.
