SDA (K2000)

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

  1. Remove support for SMB1 protocol on K2000

    We use Rapid7 to scan our network for security vulnerabilities. As of version 7.2.97 on the K2000, the vulnerable and deprecated SMB1 is still present.

  2. Have media manager load local drivers

    instead of uploading the drivers to the smb in the appliance, just extract them to a folder locally and point the media manager to it.
    this will save time and also avoid samba concurrent connections issues.

  3. Please build the Kace SDA/RSA Virtual Appliances with the 7.1.94 update.

    Please build the Kace SDA/RSA Virtual Appliances with the 7.1.94 update. As the current 7.0.357 contains a bug that does not allow RSA creation across subnets. Currently, I have to build an RSA with the wrong network settings, then update the RSA to v 7.1. Then change the network settings again. This is very time consuming and cumbersome to do.

  5. Auto Update of Driver Feed

    Add a Check Box to download and install new updates when checking for drivers under driver feed, or add a function to automatically check and down new drivers Daily, Weekly, Monthly.... etc...

    It is a pain having to click on each model and then download the driver manually.

    Currently if a user updates the SDA (K2000) version, the Appliance Upgrade Log only has the date and time of the update. There is no way to see who started the process.

  7. Email notification on job completion

    As an admin, I would like to be able to get an email notification when an image or scripted install job completes, as well as what the outcome of the job was (successful/failed/partial).
    IN addition to success/failure status, it would be nice to have a link to the log file if it did file to see why a job failed.

  8. Undo the progress bar change in 6.1

    Ever since 6.1, when deploying an image we just get a red bar that constantly scrolls. In the older versions it was an actual progress bar that showed which files were being copied and estimated time remaining. This is useless as a progress bar because if a deployment is taking a long time, we don't know if it's just slow, how long is left, or if something is wrong. Terrible design, please go back to the way it was, or give an option.

  9. 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.

  10. Show "Alert" at top of screen New Drivers

    Popup or where we "alert" license expiry show a popup message when a new driver in the Dell Driver Feed gets updated for "Download and Install" Example, Dell Precision 5510 gets a new video driver update that I am maintaining, when I log into the console a popup at the top tells me it has a new update.

  11. Guys, please, it's time to implementing IGMP instead PGM. Where are you Kace developers?

    All the most popular switches are handling IGMP instead PGM. Please, KACE, go ahead with IGMP support for K2000.

  12. Ability to check / uncheck packages instead of dragging and dropping

    Ability to check / uncheck packages instead of dragging and dropping.

    I'm one of those guys that have ~100 post-install tasks in my scripted installs that all rely on being in that specific order.

    Some of these packages are huge in size and take a while to install (Oracle Client & Server, VS2015 / VS2017 etc) with a bunch of configuration being set. Ideally we want to test these packages beforehand.

    It would be a huge time win if I was able to check / uncheck packages from being executed.
    So I can skip the packages that are unnecessary for…

  13. Ability to duplicate a Task Group

    Version 6.0 introduced Task Groups. Would be great if it went one step further and allowed us to duplicate task groups. I have many locations that use similar tasks for each deployment but vary slightly (such as time zone). Would be nice to be able to create one task group and then duplicate/modify just the tasks for each location rather than having to build a task group from scratch for each location.

  14. Storage upgrade ability on SDA and RSAs

    The only way to upgrade the storage on your SDA/RSA currently is to create a new one from scratch and import all your package backups (there is no full backup/export option to help either) to replace the old one. There are now 1Tb and 3Tb options available but current machines cannot be upgraded - surely this should be a feature.

  15. Reverse the defaulted sort of Date Completed column

    Is there any reason why the 'Date Completed' column within 'Progress>Manual Deployments' and 'Audit Log>Manual Deployments' can't be defaulted to sort with the latest deployment date at the top? As I monitor the success of the image deployments, I have to re-sort the column as the default view will always show the oldest deployment at the top. This would be a time saver and seems to make sense (at least to me). Thanks.

  16. add pre-installtion task to capture name for Mac

    There are scripts to capture the name for a windows machine you are deploying via an onscreen prompt, but for Mac the only option is to have it grab the existing name of the machine. We join our macs to our domain, and we need to make sure the machines follow our internal naming convention especially for new machines. Add a pre-install task that grabs the existing name and prompts the tech to change it if they want like we do for windows!

  17. Theme support for the web interface or provide a way to restore the old interface color scheme

    The 5.0 reskin is a huge step back from the 4.x color scheme and is too bright for my old eyes.

    A way to change the colors for the web interface or just have the ability to swap to a dark theme would be great

    This suggestion was completed in version 6.0.

  18. Add SMB v2/v3 support when scanning user states.

    To scan user states with USMT from the K2000 web UI, SMB v1 must be enabled on the client pc. Support has confirmed this. There are known vulnerabilities with SMB v1 and most network admins have disabled it in their environments. Please provide support for newer versions of SMB.

  19. 10 GB compatibility with K2000

    Would be great for the K2000 OS to be able to support 10GB. I have noticed that since the the K2000 only supports up to 1GB, this severly limits how many machines I can image at once. I can only image around 8-10 machines at a time before I saturate the 1GB virtual NIC. All of my other VM's run at 10GB and I got the network to support it, would be great if the K2000 could as well. Thanks

  20. Showing synced System Images/KBEs in RSA

    It would be much easier to see what is synced with RSA when they are listed in RSA dashboard itself.
