  1. It would be nice to have something that cross references patch exit codes to a description of what the code means

    This could be as simple as a table where a user can enter some patch exit codes and what those codes refer to. This would be a time saver when looking through patch failures to determine the cause instead of having to look up the codes on a regular basis.

  2. Update all RSA Settings

    I have several RSAs. Whenever I add a new image I have to go into each of them to check the box (and uncheck the old one). It would be great to be able to update them all at once.

  3. Have RSA's replicate in Parallel.

    It is ludicrous that it takes up to 6 days to sync 60 RSA's when there is a driver feed update. The fact that the SDA only syncs the RSA's concurrently slows the process way down.

  5. stop process

    can we add a cancel image upload or kill upload process option on the SDA for system images. i recently ran into an issue where kace failed to capture my image and the SDA was stuck on "Finalizing image". the only way i could stop this process was to reboot the SDA. after the reboot the status changed to "interrupted because SDA was rebooted" and then i deleted it.

  6. Driverfeed no longer works with VMs

    This used to work on version 8 and prior. It does not work on version 9. Quest has redefined driverfeed to search for the machine ID, which is not available for VMs. They assign a code for the machine ID to a directory name, such as "0a3e". The machine ID is retrieved using "wmic baseboard get product". For a VMware VM "440BX Desktop Reference Platform" is returned. Surely they could key off that to identify that it's a VM. Also, since the PXE platform has VMXNET3 drivers, they can detect whether those are in installed and active. The same is…

  7. When upgrading the SDA from 8 to 9, please copy the driver feed drivers from the old location to the new one?

    We upgraded from a late version of 8 to 9.0.144. I found that none of the drivers in the old location (driverspostinstall\dell\windows10x64) were copied to the new location (Z:\driverspostinstall\windows\10\x64\any\dell).

    I didn't find that out until yesterday while working with support to discover why driverfeed wasn't working for VMware machines (that's another issue).

  10. Support for ARM Appliances

    It would be amazing for there to be support for ARM architecture, opening up the possibility for appliances on hardware such as Raspberry Pi's and other low cost and easily deployable devices.

  11. Ubuntu 20.04 Support.

    The former Debian Installer (known as 'd-i installer' in some circles) and the use of its "preseed" method of installing has been deprecated as of 20.04.0, and will no longer be used in Ubuntu releases from 20.04.1 and later releases, as it has been replaced by the Subiquity ("Ubiquity for Servers") installer.

    This is why the ISO's name was changed from 'server' to 'live-server'. The Ubuntu 18.04 release was released in both formats and they dropped the 'server' version for the Ubuntu 20.04 release. Hence, there is no Debian installer version of the 20.04 ISO and the Quest KACE tool…

  12. Add Task Start and End Times to Deployment Task Details

    It would be nice to go back over a deployment to see how much time elapsed per task to troubleshoot or optimize.

    KACE recently added the Add Task Start and End Times to the deployment details page of each deployment. Two additional columns that could be useful are task start and task end time.

  13. Allow Friendly Names for RSAs

    Keeping track of which RSA is what on the SDA based only on IP is difficult. Allowing to rename RSAs to friendly names would help UX a lot.

  14. Select post install tasks from KBE UI

    It would be great to have all of the post install tasks listed in the KBE UI so that they can be selected at the time of image deployment. This would be easier than having to remember to edit a deployment before hand or being able to deploy the same image with different post install tasks at the same time.

  15. Update the embedded version of 7-Zip in the Driver Feed Builder Application

    The current version of the Driver Feed Builder v3.0.0.0 uses an embedded version of 7-Zip v9.2. The current stable version of 7-Zip v19.00.

    The current embedded version v9.2 is flagging in our enterprise anti-virus solution due to vulnerabilities in that version. Suggest replacing with current version v19.00 at a minimum.

    Should take a minimum amount of time to provide this update in the next version of the Driver Feed Builder application.

  18. Add a field to the linked appliances list

    K2000 Settings - Control Panel - Linked Appliances

    Add a singe field to the linked appliance records called "Description". Apart from the hostname (which in many instances is just an IP address) there's no way to identify the various linked appliances.

    Thanks!

  20. Loading bar of image deployment on target device

    On Targert device add a loading bar to check the in order to see where the image is deployed, the technician deploying the image may not be able to see the web interface of the appliance to check the progress status.

    For exemple : 0% ----------------- to 100 %
    just displays the percentage to copy from the image for example.
