Software Deployment Question

How to know if files are being copied/detected from the Replication server

10/11/2019 559 views


I have set up a couple replication servers that I have configured and want to confirm the systems I am testing with are getting their info from the rep server and not the KACE device.  I have the replication job set up and unchecked the "Failover to Appliance" in the replication detail.

I found an old response on here from back in 2011 or 2012 but did not match up to the files I am looking at.

The way you have it set not to fail over to server, all you need to do is see is a MI or script with attachments  distributes, or patching runs on some of the machines assigned to that repository.  If the files are not there all tasks that need to get files to run will fail

  • Thanks for the quick response.
    So if i do a detect and it tells me it completed and shows the results of patches installed and patches missing (which it does) I should be going to the replication server?
    • deploy to one machine that will use the repository. A detect should work but not sure. A detect has to pass some comparason files to the client and they also should be from the repository

The old article is still valid.
The only difference is that the location has been changed.
Look into your KAgent.log (s) (under c:\programdata\quest\kace\user\ ) for lines like that:
[2019-10-13.08:52:32][KacePatch:KWeb::DownloadFile    ] DownloadFile: Downloaded C:\ProgramData\Quest\KACE\kpd\Windows10.0-KB4521863-x64.cab from smb://<CENSORED>/Replication/repl2/patches/patch_catalog/payload/28/28ffa71b-c0b7-43b6-bd3f-3f5da6b24f30/Windows10.0-KB4521863-x64.cab.733c50961cc95673a0fd886328b1490c Download speed: 7477929 bytes/second

This shows that the patch has been downloaded from the Repl Share.

MI and scripts are similar.
