Note: In K2000 version 3.2 and newer, KPE is no longer supported.
In KPE 2.3.17078 engineering made some changes to the drivers to ensure that no prompts were displayed requiring user interaction. However, Intel’s new drivers, namely e1kxxxx.inf and e1qxxxx.inf have associated din files that are not part of KPE and therefore prompt the user for them. The user can clear the prompt and KPE will boot but this becomes annoying. We have repackaged 2.3.17078 to include these files. Here is how to implement them.
It is possible to run KPE.2.3.17078 even though your K2000 appliance is still at 2.2. However, in order to repair this issue you will need to make sure the K2000 appliance is at some version of 2.3.XXXXX in order to use the KCDUPLOADER tool. If you can not upgrade, you will need to contact support for assistance in rebuilding KPE.2.3.17078.
Here is how to upgrade using a Windows computer:
- Extract the zip file to the system root (C:\)
- Download the KCDUPLOADER from your K2000 appliance under Library/Source CDs Tab.
- Extract the ZIP file to the system root (C:\)
kcduploader –h <ipaddress of kbox 2000> -n "KPE 2.3.17078 N" –t kpe –p C:\KPE.2.3.17078_N
- Use the kcduploader to upload the data inside the folder to the K2000 appliance. DON'T CUT AND PASTE THE COMMAND LINE. ALSO, MAKE SURE YOU QUOTE THE -N REFERENCE
- In the “Boot Environments” tab under “Deployments”, select “Add New Item”, name it KPE 2.3.17078 N, and select the 2.3.17078 N version of KPE you just uploaded using the kcduploader. The rest is handled by the K2000 appliance.
- Test it against a computer with the issue.
