  1. Ability to Upgrade Hard Drives or Add to Array on K1100

    I would very much like to be able to increase the capacity of the K1100 by adding disks to the array. The current disk allocation does not serve my needs and I don't even want to have to think about how full the KACE drives are. There are 3 open slots for 2.5" drives that I'd like to be able to use on my very expensive KACE appliance. Thanks!

      The virtual appliances will have 1 TB of space allocated starting with the release of 6.4 later this year. We will continue to consider implementing the off-board storage option that the K2000 has, but there are no plans to allow for the insertion of additional hard drives to the appliance.

    • Provide option for logs to go to syslog server. Eliminate need to download logs for IA compliance.

      Eliminate need to download logs for long term storage as needed for IA compliance.

      • Support VMXNET3 for K1000

        Using a VMXNET3 Adapter for K1000 could substantially improve the network performance on a VMWARE ESX Infrastructure. Currently K1000 only Supports E1000 Adapters.

          This is under consideration but not planned for the next release, Please continue voting if you’d like to see this feature prioritized for a future release.

        • Provide NIC Teaming support in KACE appliances

          Provide NIC Teaming for the Dell KACE appliances. Since the appliances run FreeBSD64 and there has been teaming support (called LAGG in BSD parlance) for more than a decade and the KACE appliances are targeted to companies that put everything in as highly-available this should become a priority. This has been solved and would be simple to cook into the FreeBSD builds.

            • Add trigger based e-mail alerts

              All events in the KBox should have e-mail alert triggers, including script events, loss of AMP connectivity, etc.

              For example, a script would have the option to send a customizable e-mail message in the "Remediation" section of a task.

              • General Security | Give me the ability to change the root password!

                For goodness sake... the K1000 is a security nightmare. So at least give me the ability to change the root password.
                Also you could (which would really be no big deal) change the settings of the web-server that you don't get 404 messages where you can find the current patchlevel of the K1000 and such things. Just drop the request. It really isn't that hard.

                • import labels

                  Allow labels to be imported from csv. This would make arbitrary (non-smart) labelling much easier.

                  • Data Dictionary

                    Make the Dell KACE data dictionary available to KACE customers. This helps with building queries. The schema does not help without a dictionary.

                    • Support for 2 NICs, each on separate networks

                      I need to place my KACE on a DMZ, with 1 NIC on a "private" network and 1 NIC on a "public" network. I do not have the ability to do port forwarding or NAT. I need to have it support local assets and remote.

                      • Allow for the import of Active Directory groups as LDAP Smart Labels.

                        This would easily allow for granular label management for users and devices - especially if the groups have already been set up in AD. Additionally, this could potentially allow for some cross over and AD management via KACE and vice versa - as users and computers could be managed via AD in relation to their group membership and therefore their label association.

                          Enabling SSH for konfig/netdiag would allow users to make configuration changes without having access to the console or the webui.

                            • Display K1000 License Number

                              I was told by Dell Kace support that a new requirement is to provide the technician with the Dell Kace license number for support. He also told me that this cannot be retrieved from the device. In light of the high turnover rate of Administrator, this information should be viewable in the "About K1000" window with the serial number. It would save a lot of time and arguing with technical support.

                                • Integrate Kace with ActiveDirectory

                                  It would be nice if Kace didn't have to import users via LDAP/Manual process. Why not just query AD against the login credentials provided? The LDAP import process is buggy and not as granular not to mention a headache to setup.

                                    Currently, adding user credentials to the SMTP settings on a K1000 requires a reboot. Can this reboot be made not to be a requirement?
