  3. Add the ability to change the install media for scripted installs

    It would be cool if I could change the install media out for my scripted installs w/o rebuilding each depolyment. When microsoft releases service packs ti would be handy to upload the new OS then replace the old version with the new.

  4. Support for UEFI deployment and building of UEFI compatible KBE environments

    All the new machines that we purchase are capable of UEFI booting. We would like to move over to this but unfortunately at the moment the K2000 doesn't support UEFI.
    Implementation of this support would be great.

  6. 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)

    The information that was originally delivered via Charlie Root emails can now be found in the SDA logs as of 8.0.

    Further, with the new email notification system that arrived with 8.0, you can schedule emails that contain useful status and system information to be delivered to your inbox.

  7. Modify WIM Image files

    Provide the ability to browse and modify the files & folders in a WIM file from the web portal.

  8. Run scripts apart from image deployments or scripted installs

    It would be nice to be able to run scripts (such as to configure BIOS, etc.) apart from a scripted install or image deployment. As it is we must have several deployments that have different combinations of scripts in the pre-install task area which makes things confusing and cluttered for our technicians when choosing which deployment option is appropriate. We have several image deployment options just for Windows 7 Ent. x64 alone; all of which take up space.

  10. Template for images / Post-Installation Tasks

    we are using several images with the same order of same post-installation tasks.

    It would be great, if we could create a template with an order of post-installation tasks and attach the template to the images.

    Background: When something has to be changed / Post-Installation task has to be exchanged, every image has to be changed manually.

    When there would be a template for that, then just the template would have to be changed and all images which are using that template would get that change(s)....

    Multicast supporting IGMP instead of PGM would be great.

  12. Allow Upload to RSA

    Since I would like a way to upload images to a RSA then have them (Or not) replicate back to the master kace. Having to upload a image to the master, then back to the RSA before you can deploy is a unneeded waste of time.

    SDA 5.0 allows you to upload images to the RSA

  13. Hide Scripted installed or System Images from KBE

    It would be nice to have the ability to "hide" certain images or scripted installs from within the KBE environment. We have images that only get used once or twice a year and our list of images is almost 100 so if you could "hide" them from the list our technicians wouldn't be able to select the old images.

  14. Easy import of Managed Software Installs and Scripting from K1000 to K2000 Post installation tasks.

    For me I have found myself re-adding software/scripts already configured in the K1000 to the K2000 Post Installation Tasks.

    Instead of having to re-upload the associated files and commands to create a new Post Installation Task it would be awesome if we could import them from the K1000 Managed Software Installs or Scripting sections.

    Import of Managed Installs completed in version 5.0. No current plans to implement scripting.

  15. Common library of software that is available in both K1000 & K2000

    Ability to share software distributions from the K1000 to the K2000 and the K2000 Post Installation library of applications to the K1000. So that software only has to be uploaded and command-line configured to a single environment. Also ability to disable the linking of out-dated distributions.

  16. Have media manager load local drivers

    instead of uploading the drivers to the smb in the appliance, just extract them to a folder locally and point the media manager to it.
    this will save time and also avoid samba concurrent connections issues.

  18. Automate the reboot count process

    Rather than having the xml answer file plug in the number of reboots, look for an automated way of calculating the reboots or count them as the system reboots and update status to know how many are still needed. Sometimes, I come up one short or one more than needed. Argh!

  20. Link Aggregation / Nic Bonding / More Bandwidth

    We would like the ability to add link aggregation to our k2000, with the size of images growing, and use of the system getting higher and higher we are slowly going to see bottlenecks that a single gigabit nic cannot keep up with. by allowing link aggregation we can speed up the uplink to the switch then speed up the uplink to the backplane on the switch that the imaging machines are plugged into.
