Updated my kbox today to version 5.... now my linux agents are acting up. The install/upgrade of the agent removes the runallkbots command from /KACE/bin and there are now a couple of exe's in that directory. Something is clearly awry.

Ideas anyone? Anyone else experience this problem?

I do believe that the runallkbots script is no longer in the release as of 5.0. I believe the command to check in is something like:
sudo /Library/KBOXAgent/Home/bin/runkbot 2 0

The 2 stands for the inventory script and the 0 is the version. If you had made several changes to the check-in interval there may be a number of '2' scripts in the kbots directory.

You probably want to open up a support ticket for this by emailing [email=support@kace.com]support@kace.com[/email] if you haven't already.

Yeah, you are correct they did change the syntax of the command. The change is not reflected i the documentation however, so im sure this will be an issue till the documentation reflects the change.

As far as the agents acting up.... Its an issue with 64 bit linux. Come to find out, 64 bit linux is not supported. yikes. i went back to using the 4.3 agent for my linux machines and all is well for now.
