SDA (K2000)

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

  1. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. Initiate a deployment from the client

    I would like to be able to configure a deployment from a client computer in an automated way for a new computer:
    * with autopilot installation of the Kace agent
    * the kace agent :
    * install a local kbe
    * configure a deployment
    * reboot the computer on the local kbe and start the deployment.

    Maybe the use of a token like for the SDA could be used to validate the request.

  7. Disable "capture image" option from RSAs

    We should have a option to disable or hide the "capture image" from RSAs. For security reasons, we do not need other RSA locations to create their own images. Plus, since Kace already has issues capturing devices from RSAs (if not linking them by IP address), then the image fails and we're unable to delete the failed image from both the RSA or the SDA. We just recently had this issue and had to submit a ticket for Quest support to fix it via tether.

  9. SDA data visibility outside of appliance

    The SMA (K1) has the ability to query and view all kinds of information using SQL, API, and the KACE GO app. I would like to see this same kind of visibility added to the SDA. When imaging a batch of computers, I'm not always able to sit there and make sure everything works. Using my phone to log into the SDA web interface is very cumbersome. Making this information more readily available and easier to access on the go would be a big benefit.

  10. Get KUID from the SMA for an existing machine

    Have a pre-install task that will allow you to select an existing device from the SMA to apply the KUID as a post install task. When imaging an existing device with a new HDD/SSD the SDA has no KUID to grab so when the agent is installed it thinks the device is a new device. This causes an issue of having multiple assets that should be the same device asset.

    Thank you for this feature request!

    It sounds like some additional review is needed in the product’s capacity after the SMA/SDA are linked. We will review this request and determine its place within our product backlog.

  11. enable / disable a post install task from executing

    if one has the same post install task in 10 scripted images, be able to enable / disable them all at once. for example, a new post install task needs to be created; however, the implementation date is unknown. I can add the task to the 10 scripted images - at my leisure, then when i need to enable the task - it is one click. Be able to enable / disable a task from executing

    Thank you for this feature request!

    It’s interesting to consider the prospect of viewing the details of a PO task and seeing all the deployments to which it’s linked. With that view available, one could execute an action en masse rather than individually.

    We will review this request and determine its place within our product backlog.

  12. Driver Feed - automate install into appliance of models in inventory

    You guys have an inventory of device "model" for network booted devices. It would be great if there was an option where this information could be used to automatically enable/install Dell Driver Feed drivers into the SDA. With options of drivers for which OS (i.e. I only want windows 10 x64 drivers), and some kind of threshold option (like maybe 3 same model in inventory before auto enabled/installed).

    Inversely maybe an additional option to delete drivers when there are 0 of the model/s in the SDA inventory (maybe in a specified period).

    Thank you for these feature requests!

    These sound very interesting. The retention concept for drivers that aren’t needed sounds great.
    We will review these further and determine their place within our product backlog.

  13. Object History tracking for security auditing

    The KACE SDA currently has no way to audit changes made to any imaging-related objects, including:

    • KBEs
    • System images
    • Pre/Mid/Post install tasks
    • Task Groups

    Coupled with the "all or nothing" approach to permissions in the SDA, this creates an information gap that results in a security concern: how do you know what object or setting change was made, when it was made, and who made it?

    Consider the worst case scenario: a disgruntled SDA Admin on their final day at the company adds a malicious script or application to a post-install task.

    The risks that come with the current model:

  14. Having a git like task repository

    several of us are working on deployment tasks. It would be convenient to be able to manage these tasks through a git repository (or other cvs, svn...) in order to be able to follow the changes made by colleagues.

  15. Sync images captured on RSA to SDA

    Version 5 finally allowed users to capture images to the RSAs. We're on version 6.1 now and are still unable to sync/replicate those images back to the SDA. In K-12 education, we use shared images across all our sites. The ability to capture images anywhere is great, but what's the point if you can't share that image with the rest of the sites? We have 23 RSAs. Being expected to export/import these images is absurd.

  17. Detect which "Source Media" and which KBE "Is actually in use"

    In a bigger environment it happens that multiple administartors are creating KBEs and injecting Source media. After a while that gets messy and needs a cleanup, but Kace does not offer any option to easily identify which are in use and which are just left overs. There is a marker for "default" but that is all. Would be really helpful to see "used" or "unused" Source Media or KBE.

  18. Enable to "kill" a blocking sync task

    We have been facing a lot of situations where the sync queue was hanging and therefore the whole appliance is useless as nothing can be done anymore. This always requires calling the support which causes workload for the support, the customer and wasting time, cause the only thing Support will do is kill the hanging process. If there would be a "button" to kill the "current hanging" task it would be beneficial.

    Example: RSA replication hangs because of new version has been installed but no version check, if the "nightly sync" task hits that rsa the whole queue is stuck…

  19. Split task queues for replication

    Please make the "nightly sync" queue run multiple RSAs in parallel, or at least adjustable. We are running 200 RSAs and if one of them for whatever reason is blocking delaying the sync the whole queue gets into a backlog. Then it is hard to get it synced without manually interacting and canceling and pushing multiple RSAs at once.

    As it is possible to run multiple syncs manually triggered in parallel it should not be a big deal to also make that work for the build in queues.

    Same applies at days when we need to inject new drivers intro…
