  1. Have media manager load local drivers

    instead of uploading the drivers to the smb in the appliance, just extract them to a folder locally and point the media manager to it.
    this will save time and also avoid samba concurrent connections issues.

  3. Remove support for SMB1 protocol on K2000

    We use Rapid7 to scan our network for security vulnerabilities. As of version 7.2.97 on the K2000, the vulnerable and deprecated SMB1 is still present.

  4. Auto PXE boot devices

    Coming from WDS, there was an ability to respond to all devices, known or unknown, with different PXE boot policies:

    Require users interaction pressing F12
    ALWAYS CONTINUE PXE BOOT
    Continue to PXE unless user presses ESC
    Never PXE boot

    I could then limit the response to a specific subnet/IP range. And because of it's rather reasonable price, I could easily spin up different WDS servers in different networks. I would really like to see the same with the K2.

    In my own environment, when unboxing new equipment, we have a designated VLAN for staging and imaging devices. It would be…

  5. Please build the Kace SDA/RSA Virtual Appliances with the 7.1.94 update.

    Please build the Kace SDA/RSA Virtual Appliances with the 7.1.94 update. As the current 7.0.357 contains a bug that does not allow RSA creation across subnets. Currently, I have to build an RSA with the wrong network settings, then update the RSA to v 7.1. Then change the network settings again. This is very time consuming and cumbersome to do.

  6. Get KUID from the SMA for an existing machine

    Have a pre-install task that will allow you to select an existing device from the SMA to apply the KUID as a post install task. When imaging an existing device with a new HDD/SSD the SDA has no KUID to grab so when the agent is installed it thinks the device is a new device. This causes an issue of having multiple assets that should be the same device asset.

  8. Auto Update of Driver Feed

    Add a Check Box to download and install new updates when checking for drivers under driver feed, or add a function to automatically check and down new drivers Daily, Weekly, Monthly.... etc...

    It is a pain having to click on each model and then download the driver manually.

  10. K2000 should support VirtIO drivers

    With the growing popularity of virtualization hypervisors that require VirtIO drives, Quest should start supporting that. Nutanix with AHV is another example of an environment where VirtIO drivers are required. Everything else we have can handle it, K2000 is the only outlier.

    At the moment:
    K2000 is not working at all on Nutanix AHV
    K1000, even if not officially supported, at least seems working fine

  11. Email notification on job completion

    As an admin, I would like to be able to get an email notification when an image or scripted install job completes, as well as what the outcome of the job was (successful/failed/partial).
    IN addition to success/failure status, it would be nice to have a link to the log file if it did file to see why a job failed.

  12. Undo the progress bar change in 6.1

    Ever since 6.1, when deploying an image we just get a red bar that constantly scrolls. In the older versions it was an actual progress bar that showed which files were being copied and estimated time remaining. This is useless as a progress bar because if a deployment is taking a long time, we don't know if it's just slow, how long is left, or if something is wrong. Terrible design, please go back to the way it was, or give an option.

  13. Show "Alert" at top of screen New Drivers

    Popup or where we "alert" license expiry show a popup message when a new driver in the Dell Driver Feed gets updated for "Download and Install" Example, Dell Precision 5510 gets a new video driver update that I am maintaining, when I log into the console a popup at the top tells me it has a new update.

    To scan user states with USMT from the K2000 web UI, SMB v1 must be enabled on the client pc. Support has confirmed this. There are known vulnerabilities with SMB v1 and most network admins have disabled it in their environments. Please provide support for newer versions of SMB.

  16. UEFI Secure boot

    UEFI Secure Boot.

    With the release of uefi pxe boots, we can now load images on our dell computers with much less interaction during the unbox. We are still forced to disable secure boot on all new systems before we can boot them.

    1. Secure boot is a prevalent security patch that negates boot malware from infecting systems. this alone should be reason for integrating secure boot loads

    2. all our equipment ships from dell with secure boot enabled under uefi, so I feel our Dell K2000 should be able to image Dell equipment out of the box without needing to modify…

  17. add pre-installtion task to capture name for Mac

    There are scripts to capture the name for a windows machine you are deploying via an onscreen prompt, but for Mac the only option is to have it grab the existing name of the machine. We join our macs to our domain, and we need to make sure the machines follow our internal naming convention especially for new machines. Add a pre-install task that grabs the existing name and prompts the tech to change it if they want like we do for windows!

  18. Transfer RSA captured images to other RSAs and/or main KACE.

    Thanks for adding the ability to capture images to RSA's, now please add the ability to transfer/sync those images between RSA's and the main KACE. Otherwise the ability to capture to RSA's is pretty limited/pointless.

  20. Allow upload of an existing WIM

    If you have an existing WIM image which you want to deploy via the K2000, you need to manually apply it to a device then capture it from the KBE to get it into the appliance.
    The ability to upload an existing WIM direct to the K2000 appliance would be very useful. I suspect it would also make it more attractive for organisations to move from other imaging toolsets to KACE if they could deploy their existing WIM images through the K2000.
