SDA (K2000)

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

  1. multicast

    Multicast supporting IGMP instead of PGM would be great.

  2. 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.

    This suggestion was completed in version 6.0.

  3. Template for images / Post-Installation Tasks

    we are using several images with the same order of same post-installation tasks.

    It would be great, if we could create a template with an order of post-installation tasks and attach the template to the images.

    Background: When something has to be changed / Post-Installation task has to be exchanged, every image has to be changed manually.

    When there would be a template for that, then just the template would have to be changed and all images which are using that template would get that change(s)....

  4. Add SMB2 support for better performance

    The SMB2 protocol gives better performance than the NT1 protocol.
    The time and bandwidth used for copying the WIM file could be optimized with it.

    On "Samba 4.X" versions it is now the default configuration, but on 3.6.X it was needed to activate it by adding "max protocol = SMB2" in the "[global]" section of "smb.conf".

    The current Samba version on the K2000 is "Samba 3.6.12", so it would be great if you could either upgrade to "Samba 4.X" (the 3.X series is no more supported) or allow us to select the "max protocol" from a menu in the web…

  5. Configure charlie root (daily) email

    Please allow the ability to customise the email sent from Charlie Root (K2000). At the moment it doesn't seem to be configurable. We want to change its 'from' address, and the display name 'Charlie root' to something more meaningful. And make that email alert more configurable, like how often its sent, what to put in 'subject', etc.

    1. Modify 'from' address
    2. Modify Display Name
    3. Turn on/off email notifications
    4. Schedule charlie root emails (weekends, etc)

    The information that was originally delivered via Charlie Root emails can now be found in the SDA logs as of 8.0.

    Further, with the new email notification system that arrived with 8.0, you can schedule emails that contain useful status and system information to be delivered to your inbox.

  6. Add Powershell Script to Post-Installation Tasks

    Now that windows comes with Powershell installed. It would be nice to be able to add Powershell scripts as Post-Installation Tasks instead of having to zip them and run them with a batch file.

  7. Filter Installation Tasks

    since some companies could have a lot of post install tasks, it'd be nice to be able to search the tasks while adding them to the image and then be able to drag them with out leaving the screen search results. Scrolling through 300+ PITS is cumbersome.

  8. Automatic Naming of Computer from K1000

    If i'm rebuilding a computer the Kbox should rename the computer correctly based on the information in the K1000. The old scripts are klunky. Maybe just a simple database/SOAP query to the K1000 for basic naming.

  9. Windows 10 Deployments

    I started playing around with Windows 10 Enterprise Pre-Release. I downloaded the AIK from here: https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=526740

    The new version of Windows 10 can be found on Microsoft Technet or here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/evalcenter/evaluate-windows-enterprise-technical-preview

    The issue that I see at present is that the Dell Kace Deployment Application Client: MSHTA.exe will not run on the WinPE 10.

    However, a way to install 10 is to navigate to Y:\source_cds\9 (or the updated Windows 10 source CD) then run setup.exe

    This will at least install Windows 10. It isn't a work around, but at least it might Windows 10 a step closer to trying it…

  11. Under Scripted Install - match task drag box with avail tasks

    Under Scripted Install:

    When you drag avail tasks from the right column to the run tasks on the left column the drag window is to small.

    We have several avail post install tasks to the point where you must scroll up while dragging the task at the same time. I remember before that you could just drag any tasks from the right and drop it to the left without scrolling. Can you bring this ability back?

    In the attached picture I had to reduce the browser zoom to give you an idea.

  13. Drag and drop anywhere.

    We have lots of software we deploy, ever user is different in the software he/she uses.
    I have over sixty programs in the the Post-Installation window.

    In the previous version, I was able to drag and drop software from the Post-Installation Tasks to anywhere on the left side. And it would drop it in the Run Post Installation Tasks.

    Now I have to select the software and use the up arrow key to scroll up the page to drop the software in the Run Post-Installation window.

    Please put back this feature.

  15. Support for building Mac OS X 10.10 boot environment

    At the moment, we can't use the K2000 to deploy to new Mac Mini or iMac hardware as their hardware isn't supported by the 10.9 boot environment.

  17. Multicasting RSA

    If possible, it might be a good idea to allow the RSA's to handle multicast requests also. Having machines join a session via the KBE would be a good way to implement this.

    Supporting IGMP (instead of just PGM) would be nice also.

  18. ClientIP in k2000 kbe

    I was looking for client IP, once booted, but it only shows server K2000 IP address at the bottom.

    Would it be possible to add that right next to the K2000 IP address in the future?

    Thanks,
    Marek

  19. Increase file size limit for PO tasks

    The size limitations for the K2000 keep me from creating PO tasks for important app installs like the Adobe CS Suite. The package is much greater than the ~2GB limit. Would be great to have this relaxed to a much higher size

  20. Add VNC to Task Engine in windows.

    Add VNC (maybe as a checkbox option before deploying) to the Task Engine after image/scripted install is pushed for remote support during post-installation tasks in windows.
