  3. hi, do i upload the gsi to you direct? I'm using KSC management
  4. Just shutdown and started again, now for probably the 5th time, and it's still showing an error
  5. Hi, I've deployed KES11 to 3 our machines (3 of 120, hence testing it first). These are all Win10 1803. All three of them deployed OK, but after a reboot, the KES tray icon has a grey icon with a yellow triangle in it. The problem is the Web Threat Protection is disabled. Since I started typing this, one of the machines has sorted itself. The other 2 are still like it though after another shutdown/restart. Any ideas?

    Stop or disable KES10 PXE server?

    10.4.343. And yes, I saw that course, that's how I got this far. I simply want to know if you can pause/stop the PXE server so that machines don't try and network boot, because some machines are doing this automatically.

    Stop or disable KES10 PXE server?

    KSC10 latest version and patches. Under 'Remote installation' node, right-clicked the 'Deploy device images' and then added the localhost (the KSC server itself) in the PXE servers in the network. Defaults, nothing to setup really.
  8. Hi, This week I've been using KES to assess patches and vulnerabilities, and thought I'd also look at deploying device images too. This seems a little easier than going down the Microsoft route and using another server when this is all geared up to do the same job. Anyway, I have it working after just an hour or two, which is making me wonder why I didn't do this sooner. But I've noticed something straight away that I now know will be a problem. Simply, I made the server itself the PXE server, to allow me to deploy images via network PXE. It seems the easiest method to me, a bit of a no brainer. But, I think many of our machines have PXE boot up the priority on their boot order. So 3 laptops already this afternoon have tried to PXE boot on reboot, and therefore the user is clueless as to what's going on. So, I don't want to really delete the KES server from the PXE server list, then re-add it each time, so can I stop the server service and start it manually as and when I want to deploy? I can't really go and configure the boot order on 130+ devices very easily, so I really hope there's a way of stopping the server announcing itself? I see nothing in the interface, short of deleting it then adding it again. Thanks in advance, Alan

    KSC10 as WSUS alternative?

    Sure, go ahead

    KSC10 as WSUS alternative?

    They are great resources, that I didn't know existed! I've setup a little test, and I think I know where to go from now. Thanks again for the pointers. I don't think it's quite as specific as I wanted it to be, but I now know how to report on vulnerabilities relating to Windows updates, and how to initiate updates based on that. Which is exactly what I was after!

    Thanks for the link, I will go through that on Monday! Not sure why I couldn't find that, I was looking through the same course list!

    KSC10 as WSUS alternative?

    Sorry - KSC10.4.343 and KES10.3.0.6294
  13. Morning. Having used KSC for years, I've still never explored the patch management, vulnerability assessment, or 'WSUS' functionality, until recently. I am having real problems finding specific background info or documentation around how the 'WSUS' works. First, our environment is currently that we do not have WSUS. Our end users are informed about new updates automatically via Windows update group policy settings, but they do not always install them. More of a concern, some machines have problems with Windows updates, sometimes the WU service (expecially Win7) decides to not function. I was hoping and assuming that KSC lets me have full visibility over who has what updates, when they were installed, or allow me to force roll out specific updates to specific users. Can someone explain if I am missing some documentation, or if there's a tutorial or something that can help? The Admin guide for KSC doesn't give me much detail... - I have a Windows update sync task. - I have isolated 2 client machine (win7) into a spare container/folder so I can experiment with just those devices - I don't want to set this up on 140 devices right now! - The NW agent policy for that container has use admin server as WSUS selected, and Active mode was the default. - I have a find vulnerabilities task for that container, which includes all tickboxes ticked in the Settings tab, which seems to apply to updates - The above task seems to say running 0% for ever, I don't think I've seen it complete? Where do I review the findings of the scan, assuming it ran? Can I not then selectively patch the system with the chosen windows updates? Sorry if this is basic stuff, but a guide or walk through would help me out there. Thanks, Alan
