We would like to be able to netboot a Mac across subnets (we have 39 academic subnets on campus, out of about 107 total subnets) without having to issue a bless command on each Mac or having to have an RSA on each subnet. We have a 10.5 server running DeployStudio that handles this just fine, but I'd like to be able to use KBOX for all of our imaging (Windows imaging on KBOX is much nicer than using Ghost).288 votes
We are still planning on Mac OS X Server integration in a future release to support this.
If i'm rebuilding a computer the Kbox should rename the computer correctly based on the information in the K1000. The old scripts are klunky. Maybe just a simple database/SOAP query to the K1000 for basic naming.138 votes
This is part of a long-term vision in the roadmap towards restoring a machine’s identity on the K1000 when rebuilt from the K2000, with incremental progress being made in each release.
Please allow the ability to customise the email sent from Charlie Root (K2000). At the moment it doesn't seem to be configurable. We want to change its 'from' address, and the display name 'Charlie root' to something more meaningful. And make that email alert more configurable, like how often its sent, what to put in 'subject', etc.
1. Modify 'from' address
2. Modify Display Name
3. Turn on/off email notifications
4. Schedule charlie root emails (weekends, etc)135 votes
We have some new features planned that include parts of this suggestion. Stay tuned!
If I create a new image and I want to sync that out to all my RSAs, it would be nice to have an option to add that item to sync to "selected RSAs" or "All RSAs" instead of having to add the image individually to each RSA, which is painful when you have 10+ RSAs.10 votes
We agree! This is great feature and the team is working diligently to get it into a future release. Stay tuned for more details.
When you manage multiple RSAs, it's a pain to upgrade all of them when you finish an upgrade of the master appliance.
From the remote sites screen on the master appliance, you should be able to check the box next to multiple RSAs, and choose Upgrade Remote Site from the Action dropdown.8 votes
Correction- The team is reviewing this suggestion for future releases. Stay tuned for more details
It would be great if it were possible to multicast to a hard drive with multiple partitions. In imaging our dual-boot computer labs we have to unicast the image which takes longer and uses more bandwidth. According to Dell it's a "software defect K2-5393", which In my opinion should be fixed.7 votes
