  1. USB Image Encypted

    When creating a USB Image, have the data encrypted. This will protect sensitive passwords from being exposed. In the event the USB Stick is lost.

  2. 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.

  3. Enhance Scan User States Offline task to work for User Profiles stored on secondary partition

    It would be very helpful to have the Scan User States Offline task work for environments where user profiles are stored on another partition (D:\Users for example).
    The builtin Scan User States Offline task works only if users are stored in C:\Users. Also, the task is somehow hard coded and receives some parameters passed on from Custom, Scripted, Imaging html files respectively and where it's called. The scan_user_states_offline.wsf references scripts under peinst\hta folder which is read only so customizing this task it's almost impossible.
    Thank you!

  4. Add an additional column in the "Deployment progress" view to be able to identify the machines.

    Add an additional column in the "Deployment progress" view to be able to identify the machines. Right now its just possible to show the "Name", "Deployment", "Deployment Type" and "Date Started".

    In a big envrioenment (we have 14k+ clients and 200 sites) this is completely useless as multiple installations starting at the same day and the list is showing the same "names" just the time is different. By adding the IP and Mac address (both values are available at that point already) would significantly help to identify the correct machine which needs to be monitored.

    Easy implementation and a great…

  5. lenovo

    Would love to see both Kace appliances more universal to other brands such as Lenovo. With that, we would like to have the same capability we do with KACE and the driver feed without having to use the driver feed builder.

  6. Custom Schedule to Export Packages

    Could we have more options for the schedule export of packages? We are looking at schedules such like:
    A. on a monthly schedule i.e. the last day of the month or 15th of the month
    B. biweekly

    I understand that the ability to create a custom schedule is available on the K1000.

    Thank you.

  7. Split task queues for replication

    Please make the "nightly sync" queue run multiple RSAs in parallel, or at least adjustable. We are running 200 RSAs and if one of them for whatever reason is blocking delaying the sync the whole queue gets into a backlog. Then it is hard to get it synced without manually interacting and canceling and pushing multiple RSAs at once.

    As it is possible to run multiple syncs manually triggered in parallel it should not be a big deal to also make that work for the build in queues.

    Same applies at days when we need to inject new drivers intro…

  9. Enable option to import K1000 Scripted Installs

    Enable option to import K1000 Scripted Installs in addition to the existing option of importing Managed Installs. I find the scripting option more flexible and tend to write most installs with scripts. Unfortunately I am currently unable to import these scripted installs into the K2000.

  11. Enable to "kill" a blocking sync task

    We have been facing a lot of situations where the sync queue was hanging and therefore the whole appliance is useless as nothing can be done anymore. This always requires calling the support which causes workload for the support, the customer and wasting time, cause the only thing Support will do is kill the hanging process. If there would be a "button" to kill the "current hanging" task it would be beneficial.

    Example: RSA replication hangs because of new version has been installed but no version check, if the "nightly sync" task hits that rsa the whole queue is stuck…

  12. MAC-Adressfilter for KACE PXE-Server

    For rival pxe servers in the same subnet (e.g. Citrix Provisioning/KACE) there's a need to filter mac-adresses (exclude/include) for the clients/servers to point to the correct deployment system. In our former Altiris Deployment system there's an PXE-Option settiing for that.

  14. Remove Zips from install tasks

    When creating a USB image. Remove the original Zip files that have been unzipped into the contents folders.

    This will save space on USB drives.

  15. Windows Configuration Manager

    If we could use provisioning packages created with Windows Configuration Designer as a mid or post level task during deployment we could simplify our image creation and editing process. I also might bring a lot of extra functionality to the game.

  17. Ability to capture image of running server from within Windows.

    Ability to capture image of running server from within Windows, this would be really helpful for capturing an image of a server that we are unable to shutdown. Most server as running live and it is almost impossible to shut them down for any length of time to capture an image of our SQL server with all the drives.

  18. enable / disable a post install task from executing

    if one has the same post install task in 10 scripted images, be able to enable / disable them all at once. for example, a new post install task needs to be created; however, the implementation date is unknown. I can add the task to the 10 scripted images - at my leisure, then when i need to enable the task - it is one click. Be able to enable / disable a task from executing

  19. Deployment-Wide, Deployer-Defined Variables

    Would like the ability to create user-defined variables within a deployment definition (Scripted Installations, or System Images) that are valid for the entire process of deployment. These variables would be held by the K2000, not by the box being imaged.

    Example:
    As a pre-install task, I could determine the BIOS version of the box being imaged, and store it in the variable FIRMWARE_VER, and then at any point subsequent, in a later pre-install task, or a post-install task, I could call %FIRMWARE_VER% and have that information. This way I don't have to store it on a temp RAM drive (X:)…

  20. When gathering machine name, IP, MAC info, by default also include the CMID, MS new way of licensing useing KMS.

    At PCC we built our own KMS server that replicates to MS KMS server for licensing complience. It would be great if by default this was one of the colum lines in the infor along with computer name, IP, MAC etc, that could now include CMID. If there was an area on the info page to type in the FQN of the KMS server...that would be helpfull and save much time as well. Maybe have a box to check to use or not use.
