Quest KACE “K” Icon in System Tray


Purpose: To upgrade KACE agents campus-wide.

Impact: Users not directly impacted, however a new “K” icon will appear in the System Tray in Windows (or Menu bar on Macs) that gives the status of the agent’s connection to the KACE Systems Management Appliance. Icon also allows users or IT service providers to force an inventory update or restart the KACE agent service (a.k.a. “konea”).

Affected: Marshall-owned workstations with KACE agent installed.
