  1. Enable option to import K1000 Scripted Installs

    Enable option to import K1000 Scripted Installs in addition to the existing option of importing Managed Installs. I find the scripting option more flexible and tend to write most installs with scripts. Unfortunately I am currently unable to import these scripted installs into the K2000.

  2. Validity tool for the SSL certificate that has been enabled on SDA (K2000)

    There should be a troubleshooting tool on the WebUI to check the validity (expiration date, CA, intermediate CA authority) of the certificate that has been installed.

    Thanks for your submission! The team is taking a look and will get back to you shortly!
    Stay tuned!

  3. Detach the image media from the image deployment job

    The idea is to have the same process for the Imaging that the scripted installation. Then the image captured will be stored in the media Library and not in the deployment image tab. To create an image deployment job, we will select the image in a dropdown list.

  4. Please add the ability when importing packages to be able to upload a zip directly without have to extract it first.

    Currently, you have to extract a pkg or xml file from a zip before uploading then importing a new package. The SDA should be smart enough to find the pkg file within the zip without the need to extract the file manually first.

  5. Keep Bootable USB images on file and NOTIFY when completed

    When creating images, the option to 'Create Bootable USB flash drive image for this System Image' takes a long time to build, with NO indication of progress and NO NOTIFICATION OF COMPLETION. It expects you to keep refreshing the page until you discover when it has completed. Am I the only person who despises being at the mercy of the refresh button? On top of that programming oversight, once you have download the completed image, it is deleted from the server and will not allow you to download it a second time? What benefit is there in that? Why are…

  6. Slipstream Patches Into scripted Install

    It would be very beneficial to have the K2000 be able to slipstream MS patches similar to nlite/RT7lite with all current patches. Right now a Windows 7 sp1 Scripted install has 170 patches pending from MS.
    I see our K1000 as a maintainer of machines not an initial configuratior.

    We’re looking at this after we get more K1000 synchronization built into the K2000.

  7. Include Ability to Expand Offboard Storage

    Currently, using a Virtual K2000 appliance, it is impossible to expand the offboard storage disk once created - the only way to give yourself more storage is to put the files back onboard, delete the offboard disk, and then re-create, moving the files back over again.

    It'd be better if we could just expand the disk in our virtual environment, then ask K2000 to 'rescan' the disk and have the ability to expand into the space.

  8. Ability to import a CSV with MAC addresses to create automatic boot options for devices which were never booted

    Right now it is nessesary to boot all devices once to have a network inventory to setup automated boot options.

    Better way would be:
    Import a CSV with all MAC addresses of the newly delivered devices to create automated boot actions to fully automate the process.

  9. Allow for package promotion model / Off-Board package Transfer linking

    Similar to modern code versioning databases such as Github and Subversion; it would be great to have the ability to do basic version control and promotion. It looks like the existing Off-Board Package Transfer segment would be a good starting point in that it allow for items to be exported from one SDA to a location off box that can then be copied to an alternate SDA. Similar to how the export screen is able to tell if a file present in the restore location is out of date or current, i'm thinking this could easily be adapted to also…

  10. Join multicast session from KBE

    Right now, there doesn't appear to be a way to join a multicast session from the KBE. This would be very helpful if we get a new shipment of PCs in, and set them all up. Then, we just tell the K2 to start the session and wait for 30 clients. This way we don't need to harvest mac addresses before hand... We can just deploy.

    Ability to schedule boot actions on Deployments > automated deployments > functional (MAC address and IP address) without the need to create a boot action in the details of an image or a scripted installations.

  13. Mount System Images as a Virtual Disk (VHD) for Editing

    Whilst improving the access to images stored on the K2000, being able to actually access them as a mounted virtual disk (VHD) within Windows would be a huge improvement.

    We have, in the past, used the K2000's automated rules to discreetly backup a user's machine overnight to ensure we don't lose data. Being able to mount that file as a VHD within Windows would enable us to treat it like any other disk and use K2000 as a unified backup/deployment solution.

    Even if this is a case of having a location on the KBOX where we can manually select the…

  14. Deployment log report date format and XLS export?

    The ability to export as an XLS format for deployment logs would prove very useful particularly if the date and time fields kept the date/time format, at present we have a long process to convert to date/time to create useful reports.

  15. Add Samba shares to SDA

    We have a SMA at our main site, and SDA's at each of our remote sites. It seems like it would be a natural solution to allow creation of Samba shares on our SDA's to act as replication shares for our SMA, but from what I understand, this is not supported by KACE.

  16. Ability to create package bundles

    I currently have around 11 Task Sequences (Image Workflows) within MDT.
    One of the features within MDT that I've been relying heavily upon to reduce overheard when making changes to workflows is using package references.
    This allows me to create package bundles of items common to multiple images in a single location opposed to having to update each workflow.
    This is especially useful when changes such as introducing new applications is done.

    We primarily utilize a thin imaging workflow where most systems receive the same Wim containing Windows and MS Office + updates then package installation and configuration is done…

  17. default task group

    With the introduction of task groups in 6.0, I would like the ability to mark a task group as a default. So when I capture a new image, that task group is automatically applied to it.

  19. Multiple images on one usb stick

    the download to usb bootable is great. but with a 64gb usb stick it could store a bunch of images. All multiple images to be written to the same usb stick. Then create a very simple menu that prompts the user for which image to deploy.
    Could have the install to usb installer create a simple inventory file to record which images on are the usb and in what folder, then simply build the menu from it.

  20. Direct editing of USMT XML files

    In order to capture and deploy some of the custom data we have we need to modify the miguser and migapp xml files for the USMT tool. It would be nice to be able to edit this directly on the appliance.
