  2. Non-persistent VDI agent

    Please incorporate agent support for VDI environments with workstations and servers that auto-scale / provision and collapse on demand. Other apps utilize VDI agent flags that are installed on the cloned workstation(s) that enables those systems to detect and classify cloned workstations as being VDI stations. When the agents become unresponsive or are no longer detected, they're automatically removed from the inventory / licensing.

    While we could choose to ignore installing agents on VDI devices, it's still important to be able to assist users in a evolving VDI landscape, and using KACE as our primary control pane gives us our…

  5. Customizable LM.Detection resource consumption

    The KACE agent patch detection engine, under certain workflows, can be highly disruptive: pegging disk I/O, pegging CPU, RAM usage >1GB, and causing USB HID (keyboard) events to be dropped.
    Currently the engine runs full bore, as fast as possible.
    A beneficial feature would be customizable resource consumption for the detection engine to facilitate enhanced end-user experience for use cases when detection/deployment must occur during business hours.

  6. Able to quickly see what computers are currently have a pending reboot for any OS or third party software

    And to be able to use this information as a smart label.
    I have an issue where I want to update Windows 10 and new servers to the latest Kace agent, but some of them are in a pending reboot state. If you push the new agent to them it will automatically reboot the system without warning because the msi reboot flag is tripped. If I could quickly tell if the device has a pending reboot and be able to use a label to limit it, I could avoid this problem.

  7. Possibility to manual upload agent bundle also under Appliance Update

    Many customers have a hard time with manual updates.
    The usage of the server upgrade kbin works fine but when they try to upload the agent kbin this fails.
    So many SR are updated where support needs to point the customer to right location.
    Even this is described in KB articles and the release notes this gives customers hard times.

    It would be great if the upload would also work over the manual update field or lead the customer to the right page if an upload has been tried.

  8. Agent Provisioning uses NTLMv2 to support Level 5 (NTLMv2 only Refuse LM & NTLM)

    Presently the Agent Provisioning requires NTLM Level 0-4, if your environment uses Level-5 you cannot deploy the Agent via Agent Provisioning.

    Thank you for your input. We are investigating this and encourage others to vote for this feature/functionality if they think it would be useful

  10. Uninstaller should shut down Quest KACE Uninstaller should shut down Quest KACE Software Meter during uninstall

    When metering is enabled, an attempt to uninstall the agent will fail because MobileAppinfo.log is locked by the Quest KACE Software Meter service. Shutting down that service allows the uninstall to complete successfully.

    Now I understand Support maintains that its best practice to disable metering prior to uninstalling the agent, but that's not always practical when you're troubleshooting why an agent with an active heartbeat isn't running inventory. We've found that a quick uninstall and reinstall of the agent is usually all it takes to kick that process in the head.

    Instead, it makes more sense for the uninstaller to…

  11. Create x64 agent so the correct version of PowerShell is run

    In order to run PowerShell correctly on x64 Windows OS I have to remember to use c:\windows\sysnative\windowspowershell\v1.0\powershell.exe. This should be transparent to me, and will probably fix a large number of issues through the userbase for people who are running PowerShell scripts on x64 and x32 machines. It'll work for the x32 machines, but not for the x64 machines. It can't be THAT hard...

  12. Create an agent for ARM 64bit

    Right now the arm agent works on 32Bit Raspberry (and if some changes are made also on other 32Bit ARM platforms) but not on 64Bit.
    Since ARM has been moved to 64bit it would be nessesary to have also a 64Bit agent since the 32Bit one is incompatible to 64Bit.

  14. Ability to Specify Agent Port Traffic

    Set the port that agent uses to contact the appliance to something other than 443, so that Web UI can stay on 443 and we can offload SSL through a WAF, but set a separate virtual service that passes through the "konea" traffic to a different port with no SSL offload, so that agents can communicate through externally without leaving the external footprint compromised.

  15. Software inventory disks esclusion

    We have many workstation with fiber connected storages.
    This volumes are mounted in Windows as disks, but the storage hardware is shared among many clients.
    When the inventory starts the multiple disk access made are killing the storage performance making user experience with software using these volumes extremely bad.

    On this disks we don't have any applications, just video files, so there is no need for the Agent to do a software inventory on them.

    I would like to propose a disk esclution flag\rule to esclude specific disks from inventory scan.

    Thanks.

  16. Differnt speedsetting for differnt subnet.

    It would be useful if it were possible to set the bandwidth of the Kace Agent differently for different IP ranges (e.g. LAN and VPN). At the moment it is only possible to generally limit the bandwidth, which makes sense for VPN connections, but in the LAN, where the computers are connected with gigabit, not really because there is enough bandwidth.

  17. Delay of agent start

    Due to specialities in the environment it would be a great idea if we had an option to delay the start of the agent (like nohooks does not interfere with login and the ability to disable the splash screen etc)

    Right now many tasks (incl the agent) start at bootup, but a delay of some of the tasks would be ideal (something like the agent starts 5min after the network connection has been done would be ideal)
