  1. Application proxy setting for KACE Agent.

    In my environment(s) we have developers who set HTTPPROXY & HTTPSPROXY as system environment variables so that they can run their applications. With these set, the KACE agent will not check in correctly.

    I propose that we have application specific proxy settings available for the KACE agent application, whereby should no proxy settings be configured on the application, all other possible locations for setting a proxy (eg. IE, netsh, Env) are ignored and a direct connection is attempted unless otherwise specified.

  2. K1000 should not require a reboot when changing SMTP authentication settings

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

  3. Support XenServer for Virtual Appliances

    Would like to run the VK1000 and VK2000 appliances on XenServer instead of VMware. The changes are trivial - I have validated this using the demo version of the VK1000 appliance. Two things:
    - In /etc/fstab, change /dev/da0p to /dev/ada0p
    - In /etc/rc.conf, change ifconfigem0 to ifconfigxn0

    I would imagine these changes could be automated/scripted pretty easily, or an appliance could be generated that is fully compatible with XenServer. The FreeBSD kernel in use already supports all of the Xen accelerated hardware (xn0 is the Xen Network 0), so it's just trivial config file changes.

  6. Exceptions List for MIA

    The ability to create a label or other list of exceptions for MIA computers would allow us to account for machines that are off-site more often than not, but still have them appear in our Computer Inventory. We have loaner laptops that are primarily used for client presentations / events and as such, are often off the grid for longer than 30 or 60 days.

  8. We would like to be able to transfer computer data from one Kace Appliance to another for combining

    We would like to be able to transfer computer data from one Kace Appliance to another for combining data and reporting on it. Our reasons are that the CIO at UF has our one KACE box for collecting data and will be deploying agents on as many computers as we can. However, some departments actually already have or are going to get their own KACE Appliances. We want to be able to combine their data into ours. It looks like the import/export is for resources, not computers, and that linking KACE boxes is for password syncronization (which we do not…

  10. Broaden the scope of the User API

    I would like to see more actions available to the users endpoint of the API. The ability to create, modify, delete, and audit logons for user accounts.

    One use case - in an LDAP scenario, you might want to trim thousands of old users who lo longer exist in the LDAP environment (university)

    Another use case - you want a user with necessary permissions to retrieve a user ID from the API in order to submit a ticket as that other user.

  11. A warning if a discontinued version is used

    If you login as administrative user you should get the info that the version you are using is discontinued.
    Currently you get a message that a new version is avaiable if it is enabled in the DW.
    But there is no info for all appliances out there.
    So there are many really old appliances out there.

  12. Integrate K1000 with 1E Nightwatchman/Wakeup

    Integrate K1000 with 1E Nightwatchman/Wakeup so that scheduled scripts, patching or needed managed installs will with either automatically wakeup a machine or keep it powered on until all needed installed are completed. SCCM 2007 already has this integration with 1E Nightwatchman

    Please add an audit trail for the Owner's Only option in the History Tab. You can see that the option is selected, but cannot see who checked/unchecked the option or when.

  14. Ability to select logs to send to syslog server

    It would be pretty helpful if we have the ability to select the exact logs which are going to be sent to the remote syslog server. For example: Only Backup Log or Backup Log and Patchdownload Log

  15. Allow backup dump of the Kace database for another server to serve the database

    We are seeing that sometimes using the Kace appliance to do the reports can be very slow, and when we have reports running on the appliance, this can make the appliance go even slower.

    I would like a way to export the whole database from the appliance so another server or even another Kace appliance, but basically I want to be able to have another server or appliance be used do the reporting instead of using my production Kace appliance.

  16. Integrate the Dell Sonicwall Global Management System

    Integrate the Dell Sonicwall Global Management System or a similar express version into the KACE appliance for remote firewall management. Now that SonicWall is a Dell company, it should include management capabilities for SonicWall products.

  17. On certain networks KBOX may be subjected to security scans and requirements. Quicker responses to updates for the underlying KBOX systems

    On certain networks KBOX may be subjected to security scans and requirements. Quicker responses to updates for the underlying KBOX systems are necessary. This puts the system at risk for being forced offline.

  18. Allowing changes to the Not Allowed message.

    Currently when an application/program is not allowed through Application Control the message simply says "Application control" "Terminated black listed application".
    Would be nice to change this message to give the user a reason and contact method to get the app white listed.

  19. advanced Apache settings

    It would be really helpful if there can be setting controls for advanced Apache features. Specifically, the ability to set HTTP 302 redirects. Our need is based on our KBox currently has an internal URL. We are implementing SSL with a wildcard certificate on the box so it can be accessible to more users. We want to force SSL only traffic. While we can make the DNS change so both addresses are valid, users who visit https://kbox will get a browser certificate warning. If KBox enabled Apache 302 redirect, the browser would automatically go to https://kbox.domain.com and the browser would…

  20. Cumulative bar on Task Schedule page

    The Task Schedule page introduced in version 9.0 makes distributing tasks easier, but including a bar for the cumulative "busy-ness" of the appliance would be fantastic. Currently, when looking at the chart you need to scroll up and down to get a sense of the times when the appliance is least busy. Adding a line that gives an indication of how many tasks are running at a given time would make identifying busy and non-busy times easier.
