Installing Agent Kace K1000 on Windows

I am new to the Dell Kace K1000 product and honestly I know next to nothing. I have an environment without AD and would like an easy way to implement the agent on all machines. I've read something that needs to leave the network connection type private and run winrm quickconfig to install the agent but it gets kinda impractical for having about 500 machines in my infrastructure.

Is it somehow easier? Any script or a step by step how to do?

Can you guys help me, please?

Thank you!

The Kace appliance can do this for you, if you use a provisioning schedule to deploy the agent to the computers. The only problem you will have, is going to be that you need to turn off UAC completely, and also will need to have the file and printer sharing enable. Another issue you will face, will be with Windows 1709 and newer, since these versions of Windows have the SMBV1 protocol disabled by default, and will not be able to see the samba share on the kace appliance.

To use the provisioning schedule, go to settings > provisioning. Make sure you uncheck the box of WinRM on port 5985, unless you do have WinRM on all your computers turned on.
