SDA (K2000)

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

  1. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. Better RSA sync scheduling - mimic SMA days/hours

    Many of my RSAs are in locations that have VERY limited hours I can use max bandwidth. Why can't there be a calendar setup like the SMA where I can specify what hours of what day of the week sync'ing can occur? I have to manually start/stop sync'ing as there's not enough granularity in scheduling the sync. Why can't we have the low/high bandwidth settings just like the SMA? I spend WEEKS, not hours trying to sync my RSAs.

  5. Allow you to select a task group before from the KBE deployment UI

    It would be nice to be able to select a WIM and then have the option to select what task group you would like to use right from the KBE, so instead of having 10 WIMs you can just have 1, then a dropdown offering the task group.

  6. Highlight KACE Default-Tasks in Library

    Per default, several pre-installation, mid-level and post-installation tasks exist on the SDA. When you start adding more tasks, it quickly becomes confusing which tasks belong to KACE and which are self-created.
    I think it would be great if they were visually distinguished. At a glance, you would be able to see your tasks and the ones from KACE.

  7. Different boot manager password for each RSA

    Currently, you can specify a "Boot Manager Password" on the K2000 and it is used on every RSA. I'd like to have different passwords for each RSA. Maybe on the K2000 under Deployments > Remote Sites > (select the RSA) then have a checkbox to override the default "Boot Manager Password" and enter it there.

  8. "Smart" Labels

    I was excited when Labels were introduced to the K2/SDA. In using them, though, they have not been as useful as I initially expected. The problem is they are not "Smart". I would like to see a Smart Labeling ability added like what is available in the K1/SMA.

    I know that the implementation would be a little different, as the SMA applies labels during inventory which the SDA doesn't do. A thought would be to make them saved searches instead of Smart Labels in the SMA since. Adding Advanced Search capabilities and then saving the searches so they can be…

  9. 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.

  10. Auto PXE boot devices

    Coming from WDS, there was an ability to respond to all devices, known or unknown, with different PXE boot policies:

    Require users interaction pressing F12
    ALWAYS CONTINUE PXE BOOT
    Continue to PXE unless user presses ESC
    Never PXE boot

    I could then limit the response to a specific subnet/IP range. And because of it's rather reasonable price, I could easily spin up different WDS servers in different networks. I would really like to see the same with the K2.

    In my own environment, when unboxing new equipment, we have a designated VLAN for staging and imaging devices. It would be…

    Thank you for this feature request!

    It would be interesting to see how this idea plays out not just for the SDA but for any connected RSAs as well. You’re correct with the risk assessment, and we’ll need to incorporate that into our discussions as we review this.

  11. Ability to upload MIG files downloaded from the RSA into the SDA

    The USMT profile is currently able to be exported from the RSA and could run a custom task to deploy the MIG file. Would be better if there was an option to import MIG file into SDA to be selected during image deployment from SDA. This would be similar to current process of images captured on the RSA that can be exported - then imported into another RSA or SDA.

  12. Enhance Scan User States Offline task to work for User Profiles stored on secondary partition

    It would be very helpful to have the Scan User States Offline task work for environments where user profiles are stored on another partition (D:\Users for example).
    The builtin Scan User States Offline task works only if users are stored in C:\Users. Also, the task is somehow hard coded and receives some parameters passed on from Custom, Scripted, Imaging html files respectively and where it's called. The scanuserstates_offline.wsf references scripts under peinst\hta folder which is read only so customizing this task it's almost impossible.
    Thank you!

  13. Basic SNMP configuration...

    Basic configuration, such as system location or system contact, for SNMP is not available to the end user. Many SNMP monitoring tools pull this information and map devices using this information. This information can be provided in the /usr/local/etc/snmpd.conf however the end user can not edit this, so options might be to allow this information to be added in the konfig stage of the install or when going into the Security Settings/General Security Settings and putting a check mark in Enable SNMP Monitoring other fields can open (besides SNMP Community String) for syscontact and syslocation. Once saved this information can…

  14. USB Image Encypted

    When creating a USB Image, have the data encrypted. This will protect sensitive passwords from being exposed. In the event the USB Stick is lost.

  17. Add an additional column in the "Deployment progress" view to be able to identify the machines.

    Add an additional column in the "Deployment progress" view to be able to identify the machines. Right now its just possible to show the "Name", "Deployment", "Deployment Type" and "Date Started".

    In a big envrioenment (we have 14k+ clients and 200 sites) this is completely useless as multiple installations starting at the same day and the list is showing the same "names" just the time is different. By adding the IP and Mac address (both values are available at that point already) would significantly help to identify the correct machine which needs to be monitored.

    Easy implementation and a great…

  18. 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.

    Great news! We expect to address this in our upcoming 7.0 release.

    Stay tuned!

  19. 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…

  20. The CSR generator needs to support SAN's as it does in the SMA v8.1

    I am speaking from SDA v5.1 perspective. I do not know if SDA v6.0 has already resolved this. The SMA v8.1 resolves this issue.

    The issue is described in this knowledge base article:
    https://support.quest.com/kace-systems-deployment-appliance/kb/230041/error-net-err_cert_common_name_invalid-certificate-error-on-browser-230041-

    The SSL certificate signing request feature needs to support the entry of SAN's.
