Software Deployment Question

How do I install KACE from scratch onto a new VM?

09/17/2018 2862 views
What's the manual way of installing KACE from scratch on a Linux/BSD VM? Is it best to mount the .kbin file to have it install off of that or is there an ISO installation image somewhere I'm not seeing on the KACE support page?

You will need your license key handy for this, make sure to have it.

Read the Technical Specs required to run a Virtual KACE appliance:

--For Hyper-V, 2012 R2 is the minimum required-- Virtual Box is not supported -- Citrix is not supported-- VirtIO is not supported----

Finally read the Setup guide for VMWare here:

Or the setup guide for Hyper-V here:

Here are the VM templates for Hyper-V and VMware (OVF):

I believe you will need to be logged-in to download all the documents.

  • Are OVF instances the only way to go? What if I want to control the amount of space my KACE deployment uses, say use less than 1Tb?
    • negative, as far as I know, that is not possible, you could always use Thin provision.

Quest doesn't provide ISO. You can use the OVF available on support site and provision it as Thin HDD.
