The KACE Systems Management Appliance (SMA) Windows Agent GPO Provisioning Tool is a Windows-based tool used to deploy the KACE SMA agent to Windows computers. The tool uses Active Directory and Group Policy to distribute the installation settings and perform the installation. This tool will create or modify a pre-existing GPO to install the KACE SMA Agent when a computer authenticates with Active Directory.
The first time a target computer refreshes Group Policy after completing this process, a new Group Policy client-side extension dll is registered on the computers applying this GPO, and then the next time that the computer refreshes Group Policy, Windows will trigger the newly registered client-side extension to install the SMA Windows Agent.
Note: There are multiple versions of the GPO tool and it will be necessary to choose the proper SMA version at the top of the downloads page before downloading the corresponding GPO Tool.
The tool is available here.
IMPORTANT: KACE GPO tool 1.0.122 applies for KACE SMA 8.0 and above. KACE GPO tool 1.0.117 applies for KACE SMA 7.2 and below.
