Systems Management Question
K1000 Agent: Is it possible to update my agent between certain hours. (upgrade, 5.3)
I am looking for a way to use the 'Agent Updates from KACE' feature to deploy agent updates between 11:00 PM and 3:00 AM in the timezone that the agent lives in.
Backstory: all of the systems we manage are customer facing all the time. We can't have our computers doing anything unexpected at a time when customers could possibly see something unexpected happening. There's a slight misconception that it's possible that upgrading the KACE agent is likely to cause something like an unexpected popup to appear, and it's really difficult to convince (and to be fair even hard for me to believe) that there is no way a popup is not going to appear the KACE agent tries to update itself especially when your talking about 1000+ systems being updated.
How do I deploy an agent update at a certain time of the day? Is it possible to do using the 'Agent updates from KACE' feature?
Server version: 5.3.53053
Agent Version: 5.1.38724 (upgrading to 5.3.53177)

You could create a standard managed install as you normally would, and set the "Deployment Window".
