SDA (K2000)

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

  1. Ability to Deploy Large Applications as Post Install Tasks

    Currently the limit is 2GB I think for Post Install Task. Even with a work around of exporting, re-zipping and importing, the system does not support large applications such as Adobe CC. The only way around this is to run it from a file share.

    This suggestion was completed in version 6.0.

  2. Improvement of Sysprep Creator for Windows 10

    It would be helpful to have more options with the Sysprep Creator to build a complete unattend file. Things under "Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup" including "BluetoothTaskbarIconEnabled" and "DonNotCleanTaskBar" for examples. Encrypting the password would be great. Adding custom firstlogon commands. Among other things that would be helpful.

  3. Transfer RSA captured images to other RSAs and/or main KACE.

    Thanks for adding the ability to capture images to RSA's, now please add the ability to transfer/sync those images between RSA's and the main KACE. Otherwise the ability to capture to RSA's is pretty limited/pointless.

  4. Drag and drop anywhere.

    We have lots of software we deploy, ever user is different in the software he/she uses.
    I have over sixty programs in the the Post-Installation window.

    In the previous version, I was able to drag and drop software from the Post-Installation Tasks to anywhere on the left side. And it would drop it in the Run Post Installation Tasks.

    Now I have to select the software and use the up arrow key to scroll up the page to drop the software in the Run Post-Installation window.

    Please put back this feature.

  5. Progress Bar on Driver Caching

    It would be nice to have someway to know when driver caching has completed and deployment can begin. Whether it be a progress bar or simply an updated status message similar to other areas of the kbox.

    I believe driver caching is logged to the status bar on the upper right of the appliance.

  6. Ability to duplicate a Task Group

    Version 6.0 introduced Task Groups. Would be great if it went one step further and allowed us to duplicate task groups. I have many locations that use similar tasks for each deployment but vary slightly (such as time zone). Would be nice to be able to create one task group and then duplicate/modify just the tasks for each location rather than having to build a task group from scratch for each location.

  7. Support IGMP for multicast support like Ghost.

    With Ghost, on 100 GB ethernet, we could send a 100 GB image in 3 hours to any number of PCs in a lab effortlessly. Multicast support to K2000 will make life easier for anyone needing to clone a significant number of PCs quickly.

  8. Undo the progress bar change in 6.1

    Ever since 6.1, when deploying an image we just get a red bar that constantly scrolls. In the older versions it was an actual progress bar that showed which files were being copied and estimated time remaining. This is useless as a progress bar because if a deployment is taking a long time, we don't know if it's just slow, how long is left, or if something is wrong. Terrible design, please go back to the way it was, or give an option.

  9. Add SecureStartup from WinPE_OCs as option in KBE Manipulator

    It would be nice to not have to go through the manual process of adding this package for Bitlocker support. If this was one of the KBE Options in the KBE Manipulator, it would help a lot.

  10. Improve CSV upload to set Hostnames

    It would be great to get Hostnames from a CSV import directly to the K2000 Device Inventory.

  11. Under Scripted Install - match task drag box with avail tasks

    Under Scripted Install:

    When you drag avail tasks from the right column to the run tasks on the left column the drag window is to small.

    We have several avail post install tasks to the point where you must scroll up while dragging the task at the same time. I remember before that you could just drag any tasks from the right and drop it to the left without scrolling. Can you bring this ability back?

    In the attached picture I had to reduce the browser zoom to give you an idea.

    System Deployment Appliance 4.1 (SDA/K2000) supports a drag box equivalent to the number of post install tasks available

  12. Reverse the defaulted sort of Date Completed column

    Is there any reason why the 'Date Completed' column within 'Progress>Manual Deployments' and 'Audit Log>Manual Deployments' can't be defaulted to sort with the latest deployment date at the top? As I monitor the success of the image deployments, I have to re-sort the column as the default view will always show the oldest deployment at the top. This would be a time saver and seems to make sense (at least to me). Thanks.

  13. Faster PXE boot

    I would like to see the PXE environment streamlined so that I get to the menu screen quicker, currently this is the biggest complaint from my techs, that they have to wait too long to be able to select an option and leave the image to complete.

    The K2000 has supported LDAPS as a protocol since 3.0. An existing bug restricting the use of ldaps urls will be fixed in 3.4. Contact support if you need ldaps enabled in any other version.

  15. K2000 E-mail Notifications for Off-Board Package Transfer Backups

    It would be great to receive e-mail notifications when the Off-Board Package Transfer Backups are successfully completed and/or have issues.

  16. Make the K2000 Media Manager check for existing KBE name before compiling WinPE

    Backstory: We just got a new computer based on an Intel Sandy Bridge CPU and I have to create a new KBE for it. By mistake I uploaded drivers to the windows7x64 folder rather than the kbewindowsx64 folder, then created a new KBE. Of course it didn't work, then I realized my mistake. I then deleted the new KBE, uploaded the drivers where appropriate, and recompiled WinPE. At the end of the process, I got an error message saying the KBE name already exists and to please choose another one.
    So firstly -- since I deleted…

    Marking as completed as SDA is using the WIM image format, which can be mounted as a volume and searched by filename, extension, content, etc.

  18. Regional settings for more countries in scripted install

    I just discovered a bug in K2000 scripted install wizard. I chose new scripted install -> Walk me through creating an answer file for unattended setup -> and among ohter data I chose Regional and Language option for Estonia: „Estonian“.

    That created wrong data in unattended xml file that I can see under scripted install. Estonian settings are et-EE, not et-et as k2000 wizard creates. Can you correct that and also see the same for ohter countries as well.

    Our K2000 version is 3.4.54256

  19. Guys, please, it's time to implementing IGMP instead PGM. Where are you Kace developers?

    All the most popular switches are handling IGMP instead PGM. Please, KACE, go ahead with IGMP support for K2000.
