Is there an easy way to send a command to our servers to KACE and have the information reported back into the activity logs?  For example:

 cat /etc/yum.conf

I tried this command and it works, but of course the data I'm needing isn't in the activity logs.

Assuming the servers have an agent installed, you should be able to use a custom inventory rule for this.  Create a software inventory item for this and add this to the custom inventory field:

ShellCommandTextReturn(cat /etc/yum.conf)

Once the client system inventories, you should see the results under the Custom Inventory Field section.

You can also have KScripts upload files to the KBox. You could create a script that verifies the file exists and then uploads it to the server. The disadvantage here is that you can't report on the contents of the file.
