  3. Change resolution on UEFI KBE

    With the upcomming of great resolution screens for example the Dell XPS 13 2015.
    Which has a resolution of 3200x1800 on a 13 inch screen, the text font is very small, which makes it hard to read.
    So the posibility of changing the resolution before the KBE booted up would be a great thing!

  4. Prompt for Post install tasks during image processing

    It would be nice to have the ability to get a prompt to come up and ask what other post install tasks need to run during the image process.

    Use case: when a machine gets an image deployed, and on certain machines have a prompt come up and have any additional tasks be checked off to run after the OS is installed.

  5. Allow easier and faster duplication to system images

    Add the ability to the choose action drop down on the main System images page. This will allow duplication of multiple images

    Put a duplicate button to the right on the image name on the system image detail page. This will save having to scroll to bottom every time you want to duplicate an image

  6. Start post install tasks manually on a client for testing purposes

    It would be great to have an option to start the post install Task process on a test Client that has already the OS installed, so you don't have to run a full scripted install every time you want to test a postinstallation Task.

    Thank you for your suggestion. I have put this in our product feature backlog. Please vote for this feature if you are interested so we can move it up the priority list. If a workaround is discovered, it will be posted here.

  7. Single Sign On - To match K1000

    We are using SSO on the K1000 since it was released. However it broke the linking between the K1000 and the K2000. After several tickets it was decided the problem is the K2000 does not have a SSO option.

    Not sure why that is the kace (see what I did there...lol) but it really should support SSO at the console.

  8. Be able to create sym links to driverfolders

    As Hp also has started to distribute famy cab driverpacks, it would be nice to be able to symlink the different folders to one folder containing the whole family of drivers. for instance the Elitebook 745 G2 Utilizes the same driverpack as the 725 G2 , but we have to copy the drivers from one folder to another for the drivers to install.

  9. Ability to capture image of running server from within Windows.

    Ability to capture image of running server from within Windows, this would be really helpful for capturing an image of a server that we are unable to shutdown. Most server as running live and it is almost impossible to shut them down for any length of time to capture an image of our SQL server with all the drives.

  10. Set a specific boot environment for each automated deplyment

    When I switch between using a Windows 7 and Windows 8 scripted installation, I have to go and change the default boot environment (between WinPE-3 and WinPE-5) in the settings. It would be nice if the boot environment could be specified as part of the automated deployment.

  11. Improved RSA Administration

    With 100's of RSAs deployed, changes to the configuration of a single typically results in hours of work--login to RSA, change configuration, rinse/repeat.

    Ideally, I'd like one or more administrative templates that would allow me to control common settings (e.g., proxy, authentication, admin password, NTP, etc.)

    I'd also like to script the reboot of a remote site appliance (think quarterly maintenance reboots). Currently, this process is administratively cumbersome even when performing reboots of each RSA (guest) via vCenter.

  12. 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…

  13. Deploy Windows Updates automatically after postinstallation tasks

    It would be nice if the K2000 would also manage Windows Updates (like the K1000) to deploy them automatically as postinstallation Task.

  14. Modifying Post Installation Tasks In Each Deployment

    Having the ability to modify the post install tasks in each deployment separately so that it is not required to create multiple versions of a single script, or to re-script and replace the post install every time you want to change it. Basically, post install tasks able to accept parameters assigned in the deployment detail page.

  15. Rename computers via Systems Inventory

    Create the ability to rename computers as a post task via the match of the mac address and system name within the system inventory. Right now one needs to maintain a flat file via WSName.

  16. 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…

  17. Add ability to specify Default Boot Action per machine

    3.6 removed the Boot Action "Boot From Local Hard Drive" and number of boots. With these a default action could be set with number of boots set to 0 per machine. And when another boot action was used, default could be returned by chaining boot actions.

    I do not want to default all machines to "K2000 menu" or "hard drive" boot (General Settings > Default Boot Action). While I do like this option and think it is great, there should be the ability to override it per machine (and hopefully be as visible as boot actions tab).

  18. The ability to enter a computer name from the deployment UI.

    Instead of entering the name from the computer install, enter it from the UI when setting the deployment.

  19. Reboot client PC for imaging

    When scheduling a label of machines (e.g. a classroom of about 50 computers) to automatically install an image adding the ability (ideally via a checkbox) to automatically restart those machines so they can begin imaging. Some machines may not want to be restarted immediately that is why optionally would be great.

  20. 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.
