Using Dameware with Device Actions
I just attended KACE Boot Camp. I highly recommend it to all. Shout out to Veryl White and Mark Weathersbee for running a great class.
Among the great things I learned about in the class were Device Actions. This feature looks to save me a lot of time when it comes to troubleshooting once I get it working right.
One Device Action I would love to get working would be Dameware. Meaning I bring up my inventory listing, look for the device i want then select the device action and clock Dameware to log into that device using Dameware.
I found the command line argument for Dameware:
dwrcc.exe -c: -h: -m:(device name) -u:(username) -p:(password) -d:(domain) -o:6129 -a:2
I actually googled to figure out how mine broke (I'm blaming Win10 2004 but still looking). Anyway, we've been using kace 1000 and Dameware both for a long time (10 & 15 years, respectively). I love the integration.
We don't use dameware server...I haven't figured out how to get it working. We just download the client and connect that way.
Settings >> Control Panel >> General.
Scroll down to Device Actions.
Dameware, Custom action ...
"C:\Program Files\SolarWinds\DameWare Mini Remote Control x64\dwrcc.exe" -c -m:KACE_HOST_IP
(you may need to modify the path...we're using DW 12.1.x, 64bit)
I didn't have to do anything further in Chrome or Edge that I recall. In IE I think you have to edit the zone (intranet, trusted, whatever) to allow all active-x stuff. This is likely outdated since it does work in Edge & Chrome usually and they've never supported active-x.
