SDA (K2000)

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

  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

    Marking as completed as SDA is using the WIM image format, which can be mounted as a volume and searched by filename, extension, content, etc.

  5. Make the K2000 Media Manager check for existing KBE name before compiling WinPE

    Backstory: We just got a new computer based on an Intel Sandy Bridge CPU and I have to create a new KBE for it. By mistake I uploaded drivers to the windows7x64 folder rather than the kbewindowsx64 folder, then created a new KBE. Of course it didn't work, then I realized my mistake. I then deleted the new KBE, uploaded the drivers where appropriate, and recompiled WinPE. At the end of the process, I got an error message saying the KBE name already exists and to please choose another one.
    So firstly -- since I deleted…

  6. Faster PXE boot

    I would like to see the PXE environment streamlined so that I get to the menu screen quicker, currently this is the biggest complaint from my techs, that they have to wait too long to be able to select an option and leave the image to complete.

    The K2000 has supported LDAPS as a protocol since 3.0. An existing bug restricting the use of ldaps urls will be fixed in 3.4. Contact support if you need ldaps enabled in any other version.

  8. Deploy K2200 with an iDRAC!

    When the K2200s becomes unresponsive and require power-cycling, this should be performed via an integrated Dell Remote Access Card (iDRAC). Medium and large enterprises do not traditionally co-locate servers with the administrators. In such situations, touch labor at a particular site must be employed to "push the button."

  10. Regional settings for more countries in scripted install

    I just discovered a bug in K2000 scripted install wizard. I chose new scripted install -> Walk me through creating an answer file for unattended setup -> and among ohter data I chose Regional and Language option for Estonia: „Estonian“.

    That created wrong data in unattended xml file that I can see under scripted install. Estonian settings are et-EE, not et-et as k2000 wizard creates. Can you correct that and also see the same for ohter countries as well.

    Our K2000 version is 3.4.54256

  11. Binding additonal NIC's on the K2000 for failover or bridging (VIP)

    The ability to bind additional NIC’s to create a VIP on the K2000 to allow for both higher bandwidth utilization, as well as, for failover purposes would be worthwhile addition.

  12. Allow image capture of a Mac to the k2000 when netbooting from an RSA.

    We would like to be able to net boot a Mac from an RSA and capture the image to the K2000 box. Since it is not currently supported I have to take the computer to our datacenter so that it can be on the same subnet of the K2000 to capture the image. The image capture should work more like creating a netboot image where you can specify where to load the image to instead of the software assuming that the image has to be loaded to the same location that it was netbooted from.

    Folder can be compressed and downloaded in the current version of the product.

  15. Increase file size limit for PO tasks

    The size limitations for the K2000 keep me from creating PO tasks for important app installs like the Adobe CS Suite. The package is much greater than the ~2GB limit. Would be great to have this relaxed to a much higher size

  19. Windows Configuration Manager

    If we could use provisioning packages created with Windows Configuration Designer as a mid or post level task during deployment we could simplify our image creation and editing process. I also might bring a lot of extra functionality to the game.
