Start post install tasks manually on a client for testing purposes
It would be great to have an option to start the post install Task process on a test Client that has already the OS installed, so you don't have to run a full scripted install every time you want to test a postinstallation Task.
Thank you for your suggestion. I have put this in our product feature backlog. Please vote for this feature if you are interested so we can move it up the priority list. If a workaround is discovered, it will be posted here.
would be great... is there a possibility to test postinstall scripts atm at all?

This would be amazing. I manage several different types of imaging and configuration systems, and most of them have the ability to build a workflow that does not include the imaging step. (I label them Configuration without image.) Really wish KACE had this functionality.

Or is there some workaround that some users use today?
When I used MDT to image machines, we could trigger an OS reload by a VBS script that was built into the process. This same script allows us to run post-install tasks we had created for testing. While I love the K2000 and it is much easier than MDT (plus it images Mac OS), this is a huge loss in features for us. Please add this ASAP!!!
