SDA (K2000)

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

  1. Add Username to eligible Appliance Logs

    Currently if a user updates the SDA (K2000) version, the Appliance Upgrade Log only has the date and time of the update. There is no way to see who started the process.

  2. 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.

  3. Guys, please, it's time to implementing IGMP instead PGM. Where are you Kace developers?

    All the most popular switches are handling IGMP instead PGM. Please, KACE, go ahead with IGMP support for K2000.

  4. Add SMB v2/v3 support when scanning user states.

    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.

  5. 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…

    Secure Boot is now Microsoft certified and included with SDA v9.0. Upgrade today! https://support.quest.com/kace-systems-deployment-appliance/download-new-releases 

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. SMTP Authentication

    This submission is to vote for the addition of SMTP authentication to the K2000. Currently you can only supply the server name or IP with anonymous authentication. This would be helpful for users with email systems that require authentication - such as Office365 shops.

  10. Ability to split images for FAT32 complliance

    An offline deployment from a usb stick is easy for windows 7 (non uefi machines) as they can boot from NTFS, which doesnt have the same limitations on file size as fat32.

    But due to UEFI, its only possible to boot a windows 8 machine from a FAT32 flash drive. Due to images being larger than the fat32 file size limit, offline deployments are difficult to perform.

    It would be nice to have a feature that, when capturing the image from a master device, to have the ability to span the image over multiple files. Being able to specify the…

  11. Theme support for the web interface or provide a way to restore the old interface color scheme

    The 5.0 reskin is a huge step back from the 4.x color scheme and is too bright for my old eyes.

    A way to change the colors for the web interface or just have the ability to swap to a dark theme would be great

    This suggestion was completed in version 6.0.

  12. Ability to duplicate a Task Group

    Version 6.0 introduced Task Groups. Would be great if it went one step further and allowed us to duplicate task groups. I have many locations that use similar tasks for each deployment but vary slightly (such as time zone). Would be nice to be able to create one task group and then duplicate/modify just the tasks for each location rather than having to build a task group from scratch for each location.

  13. Add SecureStartup from WinPE_OCs as option in KBE Manipulator

    It would be nice to not have to go through the manual process of adding this package for Bitlocker support. If this was one of the KBE Options in the KBE Manipulator, it would help a lot.

  14. Reverse the defaulted sort of Date Completed column

    Is there any reason why the 'Date Completed' column within 'Progress>Manual Deployments' and 'Audit Log>Manual Deployments' can't be defaulted to sort with the latest deployment date at the top? As I monitor the success of the image deployments, I have to re-sort the column as the default view will always show the oldest deployment at the top. This would be a time saver and seems to make sense (at least to me). Thanks.

  15. 10 GB compatibility with K2000

    Would be great for the K2000 OS to be able to support 10GB. I have noticed that since the the K2000 only supports up to 1GB, this severly limits how many machines I can image at once. I can only image around 8-10 machines at a time before I saturate the 1GB virtual NIC. All of my other VM's run at 10GB and I got the network to support it, would be great if the K2000 could as well. Thanks

  16. Make the isos non-windows work again!

    With the new version v4.1, ISOs not windows, uploaded KBE Manipulator, aren't loaded. Wimboot is defined as the only way to load KBEs.

    Adding a checkbox in KBE details webpage (a row in KBDB.IMINSTALLATIONSOURCE) to set/unset the specific KBE for using memdisk instead of wimboot can be a solution. After saving the KBE, it modify the ipxe menu in the way we want the KBE to be loaded.

    This checkbox status can also be use in the UEFI mode, for hiding the se specific KBEs entries from the ipxe menu.

    something like that

    • KBE with checkbox set as…

  18. Driver Feed for Non-Dell systems

    Managing non-Dell systems with the K2000 can be hit or miss. you should be able to feed in drivers for non-dell systems, even without the other manufacturers support.

    Kace users could submit model specific driver packages to a temporary Kace FTP site, and Kace or other kace users could test and validate the drivers.

    Once validated, the drivers could be included in the driver feed library alongside the existing Dell systems.

    I have many great Lenovo notebook Driver Packages (T500, T510, T520, W520 etc...) I would love to share, but could use some working HP Desktop Driver Packages (like the…

  19. Improvement of Sysprep Creator for Windows 10

    It would be helpful to have more options with the Sysprep Creator to build a complete unattend file. Things under "Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup" including "BluetoothTaskbarIconEnabled" and "DonNotCleanTaskBar" for examples. Encrypting the password would be great. Adding custom firstlogon commands. Among other things that would be helpful.

  20. Ability to Deploy Large Applications as Post Install Tasks

    Currently the limit is 2GB I think for Post Install Task. Even with a work around of exporting, re-zipping and importing, the system does not support large applications such as Adobe CC. The only way around this is to run it from a file share.
