How can we improve the SMA (K1000)?

Ability to restore all or parts of the database

Our 1100 was getting awful bloated so we decided to wipe it and start with a factory clean system. KB articles and Distribution configurations are in the DB and are not exported in a readable method.

There should be an option to:
1. Have a method to restore parts of the DB such as the KB and even the distribution settings and label settings/query.

2. Have KB and distribution sql settings exported to a text file so that we could look at that information while the kace is down.

3. Have a method to mount the db on an external system or Kace tool to have the ability to read anything left in the db that we might have forgotten to get out.

    Yup. I just posted a question about being able to do back up and restore separate components because when I'm building up a new feature and testing (eg, asset management), I may need to go back to a several day old version without screwing up tickets, inventory, etc.

    Agreed. We need a selective restore feature, anybody who has had the displeasure of having to recover information can attest to this.
