Whats the largest Zip file you can upload to K2000

Good Morning.

I have created a silent install package of adobe cs5 with Photoshop, illustrator etc and zipped it up to a 3.7gb file. I have tried uploading this as a application post install task on my k2000 but it bombs out and will not upload.

Whats the max limit k2000 will take? when uploading zips app's etc.

This is a common issue; Corey is definitely correct in suggesting usage of network storage- that was my preferred method for years. If you can't for some reason though... It's not anything official from KACE, but I've had some success if you want to try it out.

1. Upload a small file to the software record you want to ultimately have installed (Adobe CS5, AutoCAD, etc.)
2. Using the Resources tab on the 1000 (SettingsàResources) [or the Export tab on the 2000] export the record to the samba share.
3. Download the file from //k1000/client [or //k2000/restore]
4. Open it with 7zip
5. Locate the file you uploaded to the kbox in Software-#.kpkg\Software-#\PAYLOAD\
6. Add your ZIP of the large installer and remove the other file.
7. Save the package (close 7zip and it will offer to do so).
8. Upload the package to //k1000/clientdrop [or //k2000/restore]
9. Import it Using the Resources tab on the 1000 (SettingsàResources) [or the Export tab on the 2000]

The next step would be to set up the MI of course. You could do something similar with a script or postinstall task.
