  2. Allow turning off software discovery on chosen machines

    There are situations when certain machine should have agent installed but software dscovery is causing problems when it comes to license compliance, like file servers. Ability to turn off software discovery or at least exclude drives/folders from it would be usefull.

  3. Progress bar on patch deployment + Summary of patching

    This idea is already published. It is marked as 'Completed', but there is still no progress bar, so I decided to create a new idea, because I don't know another way to respond to the status, so it will be recognized by Kace.

    I would like to see a progress bar on the client while patching for the current patching job.

    I think it would be enough for example if there are 10 patches to deploy, 6 are already finished, the progress bar would show 60% finished.

    Maybe it is also a good idea to see a short summary which…

  4. There needs to be an actual Agent for vmWare Host Servers.

    Having go manually run scripts on over 50 host machines is cumbersome. It would be far less cumbersom to be ablel to push an agent to the vmWare Host Server and then never have to worry about inventories again.

  5. Manual agent check in from client

    I would love to be able to use a command switch to force a check-in from a client machine. Something like %INSTALLDIR%\AMPAgent.exe /checkin. This would be very handy for new machines trying to get updates and patches ASAP before being deployed to a new hire, for example.

  6. Provide BIOS settings inventory

    It would be nice to have the ability to inventory (and enforce) BIOS settings right from the KBox Appliance. Dell provides the CCTK utility to manage these features on supported systems. Having this utility integrated into the agent would give the ability to centralize management of BIOS setttings, provide compliance reports on BIOS settings and push out BIOS profiles. This would be wonderful.

  9. Add Pre-Install and Post-Install Message to the Software Library Installs

    Add Custom Pre-Install and Post-Install Message options for Software Library Installs. This is present for Managed installs. Why not in the Software Library?
