Software Deployment Question

Trying to Deploy Bios changes From K1000 Deployment Using an EXE created by DCCU

03/04/2015 1761 views
So this may be a dumb question, so I apologize if it seems that way.

I am trying to distribute an EXE to multiple machines using the K1000 Distribution tool. my main goal is for these changes to be applied while nobody is logged into the computer. Currently when I try to run the EXE. The distribution only succeeds if someone is logged into the computer. My guess is I have to create a batch file instead of running just the EXE or something like that. I just dont know where to start and was wondering if anyone has a better way to do this.

Thanks So much!!

The first question would be: Does it install remotely with no one logged in if you do so without the K1000?  You should be able to test this with PSexec (see below for link to tool).

Also: Does your install need administrator rights?

You can test this by running the install in PSexec as described here: https://support.software.dell.com/k1000-systems-management-appliance/kb/111788

If you can install with PSexec, then you don't need any additional rights to install with a MI.  If you do, you would need to switch to an online kscript and use the runas feature.

  • Hi Jknox,

    I went ahead and did what you suggested, and it helped alot! I learned that I do have to use the online kscript and use the runas feature in order for it to work, now I am just trying to figure out how to make it work from there and I should be good to go. Thanks so much for your help!
