Software Question

I am teaching myself how to upload and save in K1000 under Inventory. Is there any basic steps that I can learn. I work with several guys who are not exactly keen on sharing information. Thanks.

First of all, this website is awesome. I am trying to practice uploading a software to be deployed via K1000.  I'm self-taught so I need some help. I got as far as uploading the software, but not sure what are the next steps to add it into the inventory list of software. How do I know it it would work deploying to the stations? Can someone suggest to me where to go to read the basic steps? Thank you.

We have lots of completely *free* training courses and video tutorials on our support site.  I've pasted links to all of them below.  The course on Managed Installations, specifically, is this one:  https://support.quest.com/kace-systems-management-appliance/training/299/kace-sma-course-5-perform-distributions-mis-file-syncs-task-chains-and-calendar-free.

  • If you do not have quest login, register and get one they have many great training resources available for you as long as your company has an active service agreement.

quick and dirty

1 install the software on a tech station manually (this is a good time to see if you can find a silent command and test it) "example setup.exe -Silent "

2 Run an inventory on that machine and the software item will show up in inventory.

3 Attach the installer to that software item

4 create MI and tie it to that software item

5 test deploy and retest before unleashing on world

  • biggest beginner mistake made is the software item will only be flagged for one/some of the OS's in your inventory. make sure you modify the "supported operating systems" under the software item to cover all OS's you plan on pushing to.
