is there a limit of the file size for an install via the Software Library?

I try to install a 1.8GB large SFX File, but the download does not even start.

All I get is a log file entry in runkbot.log:

[Fri Jul 20 17:40:29 2012] Kbot [61-1342798819] not found locally, downloading ...
[Fri Jul 20 17:40:31 2012] runkbot : Failed to launch KDeploy.exe process: -1
[Fri Jul 20 17:40:32 2012] UploadFile: Uploaded to XXXX Upload speed: 549.000000 bytes/second
[Fri Jul 20 17:40:32 2012] Cleaning up log file [C:\Windows\TEMP\dklog2]

All other Programs in the Library download and install fine.

  • Here is another link to use: http://www.kace.com/support/resources/kb/article/How-to-setup-Alternate-Download-Location

    Using a Windows share is a better answer, but you could also load it on the KBOX using the clientdrop folder if you had to.

    Basically, you set the Samba share password, then map the folder. You can then upload to clientdrop and deploy it out of the client folder. Figure client is the read-only version of clientdrop.

    I'm not a fan of this approach because if any machine that has clientdrop mapped and has a virus, it has the potential to infect that file in the client/clientdrop folder.
  • Thanks, I now used our samba fileshare and deployed a .bat file via kace that connects to the samba share and runs the installer.

Download the application source locally and then install. It can be done with most of the deployment tools. Which one are you using?

  • I would guess that he is using Kace based on the name of his log file and the contents of it.
