K1000 Managed Installation - How to remove machines Automcatically from Software Distribution after successfull Installation

03/08/2016 1188 views

Dear All

We are doing VISIO 2010 upgrade to 150 machines. Software distribution works just fine. It removes VISIO 2003 and install VISIO 2010. But after installation if we forget to remove machine manually then machine will get /adminfile file error popup because Kace agent keeps trying to install software again and again.

Is there an easy way to configure so once Machine has VISIO 2010 installed, it will get automatically removed from Software distribution list.

Thank you

If KACE is trying to install the software title repeatedly then the managed install isn't associated with the correct software title. The best practice is to install the software on one machine manually, force an inventory, find the new software title in that machine's installed programs list, and then upload the installer to that title. At that point you can create a managed install using the correct software title and KACE will know when the software is installed and stop trying to reinstall it.

I don't normally see such behavior. You could make a smart label for machines that do not have Visio 2010 (and whatever other criteria you wish to include) then target your install to that smart label.
