  2. Can the Kace agent tell the end user of a machine what patch(es) are waiting to be installed before they hit the “ok” button?

    At the moment the Kace agent only tells users that patches are waiting to be installed but gives no details of which patches. Can the Kace agent tell the end user of a machine what patch(es) are waiting to be installed before they hit the “ok” button?

  4. Agent Automatic Discovery/Configuration

    The ability to have agents automatically discover the K1000 series appliance using DNS or similar.

    In theory we could have the ability to list a kbox entry as a SRV record in DNS and any agents that are mistakenly deployed without configuration (i.e. host=kbox) will use it's Joined Domain DNS and lookup the correct value.

    There may be better ways to do this - and cross domain roaming would be a consideration that would need investigation - but the idea is that if something went wrong with an agent it could even use such a record to redeploy itself?

  5. executable search

    Ability to inventory certain executables with date of file, size and physical location. This is required for Software audits. Creating search CI's is very intensive on devices searching 20-30 different files.

  6. Apply Label via command line clientside

    Ability to run a command line against the kbot client on a client PC that adds it to one or more static labels, using credentials of course.

    I like the idea of Smart Labels, but I find it annoying to have to have breadcrumbs, custom inventory items, just to be able to say this PC have this label (and whatever MI's are associated with it).

    One example would be you have a label to push out Office to PCs, however on new builds you pre-install Office, it would be great if instead the build would simply add the label after…

    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

  7. 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.
    Attilio

  8. 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.

    KBOX needs more support for networks without internet connectivity. For example, the Security features are crippled when disconnected from the internet. The ability to download updates (ie patches) for physical transfers provides more flexibility for customers.

  10. 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.

  11. Agent Updates deployment window

    Our .edu has many computers that can only be updated overnight, owing to user experience and Deep Freeze issues. To accommodate this, we have had to perform half of our updates by unsupported methods - deployment of the msi via alternate management tools, scripts, managed installs - that can be scheduled or have a deployment window set. None of these work as reliably as the built-in Agent Updates functionality in the K1000.

    I would like to see Agent Updates able to set a deployment window, and ideally, multiple label-based provisioning configurations for updates similar to "Provisioned Configurations." This would save…

  12. New Feature Request: Give admins the ability to disply the amount of times that a user can click NO on their reboot prompt

    put in a little display that says how many times a user can click cancel on the reboot message so that on their last cancel click they are not surprised by a reboot and lose any unsaved work.

  14. Use less than 100% of disk resources when Inventory.exe runs. (or exception list of folders to not scan) SR # 3436605

    school lab computer environment, about 30 student user profiles, Inventory.exe is getting bogged down, and uses 100% disk resource, for 13 minutes, therefore it takes about 3-5 minutes to launch any app

  15. Linux Mint distro no longer working after upgrade to version 9.1.317

  17. User Inventory to include a list of provisioned Accounts

    The output of "net user" and "net user <username>" for each of the accounts.

    This list should list all user accounts, Account Type (Admin vs. user) Full Name, SID, Status (Active vs. disabled), password properties (can be changed, expiry date, etc...)

    This can be done using a custom inventory script but the output format is not easilty readable.
