Run actions on devices

Run actions on devices

You can use Device Actions to run actions on devices remotely, provided that those programs are installed on the remote devices.

You have created Device Actions from which to choose. For information on adding or editing Device Actions, see Configure appliance General Settings without the Organization component.

NOTE: When you initiate device through the agent, the action executable must be placed in your %PATH%. The agent is 32-bit, so on 64-bit Windows devices, use %windir%/System32 as an alias to the %windir%/Wow64 directory. If you need to run a program that's located in the %windir%/System32 directory on a 64-bit Windows system, you must use the %windir%/SysNative virtual directory. You can either add %windir%/SysNative to your %PATH% environment variable or provide a fully-qualified path by prepending %windir%/SysNative to your executable when defining your machine action.
1.
Go to the Device Detail page for a device:
a.
Log in to the appliance Administrator Console, https://appliance_hostname/admin. Or, if the Show organization menu in admin header option is enabled in the appliance General Settings, select an organization in the drop-down list in the top-right corner of the page next to the login information.
b.
On the left navigation bar, click Inventory, then click Devices.
c.
On the Devices list, in the row that contains the required device, select the check box.
2.
Select an action in the Actions drop-down list.
NOTE: If no Device Actions have been created, the Actions drop-down list does not appear.
TIP: Assigning devices to a user (Choose Action > Assign To) causes all of the assigned devices to appear listed for the selected user on the My Devices page in the User Console. When the user attempts to download and install software, they can select a target device, as required.

Registering KACE Agent with the appliance

Registering KACE Agent with the appliance

The appliance uses a registration process to prevent unauthorized access to its resources. Only authenticated KACE Agents can establish a successful connection.

Any Agents that attempt to connect to the appliance are placed on a quarantine list. If an Agent has a valid token, the appliance authenticates the Agent and automatically grants access to the appliance. Agents that do not have a token remain in the quarantine until a system administrator approves their connection request.

You can create and manage Agent tokens, and manage requests from quarantined Agents to connect to the appliance.
