How can we improve the SDA (K2000)?

Join multicast session from KBE

Right now, there doesn't appear to be a way to join a multicast session from the KBE. This would be very helpful if we get a new shipment of PCs in, and set them all up. Then, we just tell the K2 to start the session and wait for 30 clients. This way we don't need to harvest mac addresses before hand... We can just deploy.

    We reimage all student machines every summer and MAC stickers are no longer available and in some cases we use dongles. How about when the <pre determined number> of systems join the session start imaging...

    Instead of having machines added to a multicast session by MAC address how about a menu item to add them to the multicast session when the predetermine number of sessions join the session the session launches? Since the K2000 only supports 1 session of multicast then the systems could join that session by default. The menu item could trigger the boot action.
