Please tell us how you’d like to see the System Deployment Appliance product improved!

  1. Ability to capture image of running server from within Windows.

    Ability to capture image of running server from within Windows, this would be really helpful for capturing an image of a server that we are unable to shutdown. Most server as running live and it is almost impossible to shut them down for any length of time to capture an image of our SQL server with all the drives.

  2. Reboot client PC for imaging

    When scheduling a label of machines (e.g. a classroom of about 50 computers) to automatically install an image adding the ability (ideally via a checkbox) to automatically restart those machines so they can begin imaging. Some machines may not want to be restarted immediately that is why optionally would be great.

  3. Dualboot Windows/Linux + grub

    Hello,

    I would like to know when it will be possible to create k-Aother images or image format that will manage the Windows / Linux dual boot + Grub. or at least the possibility of an image Creation repeating the entire hard drive (Whatever the grub partition and above)

    Thank you in advance.
    Regards

    This would require expanding our integrated support for Linux platforms, so we’ll keep this in mind.

  4. Add support for Dell ImageDirect images

    We have a set of Windows images on Dell's ImageDirect site that would be nice to upload over to the K2000, either from the site, or via ISO files.

    In the future, we may have a much tighter integration with Dell factory processes, where you can use your K2000 as a ‘Dell-Factory-in-a-Box’

  5. Have Host Name displayed in the Systems Inventory when you boot a pc to the KBE

    I am deploying Windows 7 on pc's that currently have Windows XP.
    They XP machines have never been booted in the Kace 2100.
    I am hoping for a solution that when I boot a existing domain pc into the KBE that the Host name would appear with or with out the IP address.
    (Right now I have hundreds of PC's to deploy and I am labeling the Host Name Manually for the IP address)

    Also If you did not have a hostname for the pc yet because It is a brand new workstation. Once a Image or Scripted Install is…

  6. Create a Retire Option

    Create a "retire" setting for KBEs, SIs, images, pre/post-install tasks, etc so they are preserved on the KBOX, but they don't appear on boot menu/post install list unless un-retired

    The main issue is space; if you have that many KBE/SI/Images/Tasks, you are likely running low on space. Wouldn’t things be better served by exporting/deleting? Reimport when you need them again? Nevertheless, with external storage being available to everyone as of next version, this will be a more compelling feature we’ll look into.

  7. Built in Auto-Update of certain post install tasks

    For a lot of my post install tasks i add features like java/flash player/IE - would it be possible to have the k2000 come with a set of built in tasks that auto update to the latest current version instead of me having to make a new post install task for each new version of the following:

    flash
    java
    IE
    air

    so if we had a built in "latest or current java" post install task it would be an automatically updated post installation task.

    This unfortunately would require the K2 to have similar functionality to the K1. If there is software that needs to be up-to-date on your endpoints, you would likely be better served with the advanced features of the K1 instead.

  8. Built-in Wiki and/or Customizable Main Page

    Along with the idea of a customizable MOTD, I'd love to see a build in customizable or even basic wiki to add how-tos for new employees being trained to use our KACE system and to reference things and changed we've made.

    We will be revamping the UI to include customizable dashboards in the future; this will be a consideration during that time.

  9. Provide estimated size when purging unused K-image files

    It would be helpful to see an estimated size calculation before attempting to purge K-image files.
