How can we improve the SMA (K1000)?

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.

We are investigating using OMCI to support this functionality

    I am not sure if this is the correct means of doing this, but I would like to also request this feature be included within the KACE software suite. It would be ideal if KACE’s Inventory/Service Desk could provide a means of centrally administering the system boot/bios configuration settings. At a minimum being able to read these settings would be useful, but it would be wonderful if you could use KACE to centrally deploy new settings that would take effect when the remote desktop net restarted.
