Identify device issues

Identify device issues

Use the Device Issues list to see if any of your managed devices have issues connecting to the agent, or other issues.

The appliance relies on the KACE Agent to collect information from agent-managed devices in your organization. If a device encounters issues connecting to the agent, or other issues related to their environment, this prevents the appliance from obtaining inventory information for that device.

The Device Issues list page identifies any agent-managed devices whose information does not appear in the inventory due to any of the following issues:

For more information about these issues, visit https://support.quest.com/kace-systems-management-appliance/kb.

1.
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.
2.
Select Settings > Support to display the Support page.
3.
In the Troubleshooting Tools section, click Device Issues to display the Device Issues page.
4.
Review the list of faulty devices on the Device Issues, and take any steps to resolve these issues, as required.

Troubleshooting appliance issues

Troubleshooting appliance issues

The appliance server logs can help you and Quest Support detect and resolve errors.

The logs contain the last seven days of activity, and they are copied and compressed every day. Compressed logs are deleted when they are seven days old.

Log maintenance checks are performed daily, and no additional administrative log maintenance procedures are required.
