SDA (K2000)

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

  1. UEFI Secure boot

    UEFI Secure Boot.

    With the release of uefi pxe boots, we can now load images on our dell computers with much less interaction during the unbox. We are still forced to disable secure boot on all new systems before we can boot them.


    1. Secure boot is a prevalent security patch that negates boot malware from infecting systems. this alone should be reason for integrating secure boot loads


    2. all our equipment ships from dell with secure boot enabled under uefi, so I feel our Dell K2000 should be able to image Dell equipment out of the box without needing to modify…

    We’re moving this request back to a planned state as there are some additional items that need to be worked out before we proceed with development of this potential feature.

    Microsoft has provided some additional requirements and processes that need to be completed, and this has added a timeline increase for feature release.

    We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and we will keep you informed when we have any significant progress updates.

  2. Automatic Naming of Computer from K1000

    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.

    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.

  3. Configure charlie root (daily) email

    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)

    We have some new features planned that include parts of this suggestion. Stay tuned!

  4. Adding a single SI/KI to multiple RSAs at one time

    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.

    We agree! This is great feature and the team is working diligently to get it into a future release. Stay tuned for more details.

  5. Multicast an image with multiple partitions

    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.
