Schedule force agent updates.

  • Hi everyone,

    Would be nice if we could schedule our agents to force an update from 5.0.0.0 to 5.1.0.0. At the moment, we only have a 'Run now' option.

    Cheers,

  • Agreed, would like to have this. It uses a significant amount of bandwidth to push out agents to all managed PCs and servers, I would like to have the ability to do this overnight or between certain hour ranges.

  • I've found that you can edit the system script which calls a 'KClientUpdate.exe' on the local machine of the agent you scheduled it against. When I save a separate copy of this script however, it can't find that .exe. I've also checked the server and can't find it anywhere, so I can't run this manually.

    Bit of a shame really.

    I've just re-read my post before posting and realised it sounds a bit rambling. Its near the end of the day and I'm a bit gone.

  • Go home, eat dinner, log into your KServer and run the update. Bill 15 minutes of time to all of your clients. Earn brownie points for working after hours Big Smile

  • I managed to talk my boss into running updates on a bunch of machines before he goes home, as he's the last to leave.

    So eh, that works!
