Scripting Question

Pushing anything through KACE is becoming a nightmare

03/25/2015 1958 views
So, this is just the latest issue I am having with any type of software push through Kace.  I'll post the info from a single PC but the provisioning report shows that when attempted on 1277 possible IPs, 1272 failed and only 5 succeeded.  This is the report output for the single PC notations highlighted:

IP Address:
MAC Address:unknown  
Host Name (from DNS):unknown
Suspected OS (from scan):Windows
Action:Agent Install
Provisioning Status:failed
K1000 Agent Installed:No
Error Category:No Error
Record Created:03/25/2015 13:06:45

Is this saying I have to remove everything related to Kace agent from every PC and then install the newest version?  This is running directly through Kace management and not through any type of GPO.  Any information/ assistance is appreciated.

Have you enabled the update feature of provisioning?

...apparently no I did not :P.  I am going to just chalk this up to my own ignorance and try it again.  Thanks kindly.  I'll update here when completed

  • I use the update to get the existing clients while the provisioning scans the network for new victims
