Good morning-

Is it possible to install the 5.4 KACE agent on an instance of Ubuntu 10.04 LTS or 12.04 LTS that is command line only?

Thank you!

Answer Summary:
sudo KACE_SERVER=K1000name dpkg -i ampagent-5.4.10622.ubuntu.64.deb or use the KACE Provisioning to do this task

Sure, it's possible.  I haven't done extensive testing on it, but it seems to work normally.

To install, mount the client share from the K1000 and run the install command similar to this:

sudo KACE_SERVER=K1000name dpkg -i ampagent-5.4.10622.ubuntu.64.deb

  • That sounds easy enough. Is it also possible to deploy it through the GUI?
    • Linux is a server OS. No GUI on servers ;)
      There are many package managers for the GUI.
      KPackage if you use KDE, synaptic and many others.
      Never used them as I am a CLI guy.
      • Sorry, my follow up was not clear. Is it also possible to deploy the agent through the KACE web GUI? I see options for Linux, but want to make sure that this will work if my Linux target is command line only.
      • It is not necessarily a server os. One can install any of a myriad of desktop environments, or none.

  • Yes, it's possible. You have to be able to SSH into the client machine with root level credentials to deploy from the K1000.

    Use those credentials to set up the provisioning task in the K1000.
  • yes, it is possible.
  • Since it has been stated that it is possible, could someone detail the steps needed to get Ubuntu 12.04 ready for auto provisioning please for us who may not be as good with Linux.
    • SSH has to be enabled and you need root level credentials. P.92: http://www.kace.com/support/resources/~/media/Files/Support/Documentation/K1000/v54/K1000-Admin-Guide-v54.ashx
