    Oh, and use 224.0.1.20 as the multicast address and set the appropriate number of hops.

    The NORM protocol supports IGMP, you must enable igmp snooping on the switch to git it to route traffic.

    The CSV files accepts 3 criteria, IP Address, MAC Address (with colons), and Host Name (optional), so this request is already fulfilled.

    The reason this is not supported is because there are often times when capturing images or adding other items to the appliance that those processes fail because the appliance can't expand the size fast enough to capture images,etc when needed. You should be able to run thin provisioned just fine, but if there is a failure, that is the first thing to be looked at and multiple attempts should be made to accomplish whatever task is being tested. The only issue you will have is when calling into support with an issue related to this type of situation, because they know if thin provisioned errors tend to happen.

    You can use PE5 for both Scripted Installs, better yet PE10.
    If the issue is because of the error that pops up twice for Windows 7 SI in pe4 or higher, then just add on this as a preinstall task; http://www.itninja.com/blog/view/windows-7-scripted-install-error-in-winpe4-and-winpe5

    Seems like a decent idea, but you can just duplicate an image with similar results.

    Researching ways to integrate the ITNinja community, and this may be one of the big draws. We’ll look into it.

    The article is still relevant and following it will allow the surface 4 drivers to be injected.

    I always set mine to 99, and then use a script to change it to what I want.

    CH-CH DOT, run K2 advisor on your appliance first, it will show you the recommended number of reboot counts, then use the "Set Autologon Count" to match.

    I'm not saying this is a solution, just giving suggestions on how to get by for now until/if this feature is ever implemented.

    Corey commented  · 

    Try using the "Set Autologon Count" from the K2000 Deployment Workbench page, http://www.itninja.com/blog/view/k2000-deployment-workbench

    Corey commented  · 

    ahhh, so have the K2000 look at the tasks assigned, determine the number of reboots and then modify the unattend.xml in \windows\panther?

    Corey commented  · 

    Sounds like you want the reboot count to be on the system image detail page?

    Also, take a look at K2 Advisor under the K2000 Deployment Workbench, it tells you the minimum number of reboots needed.

    planned  ·  John Karabaic responded

    This is part of a long-term vision in the roadmap towards restoring a machine’s identity on the K1000 when rebuilt from the K2000, with incremental progress being made in each release.

    Corey commented  · 

    While this is being planned, you can use get/set computername to accomplish this. http://www.itninja.com/blog/view/get-set-computername

    Corey commented  · 

    http://www.itninja.com/question/name-machines-via-k1-with-k2-post-install-script
    outlines a current way to do this.
    However, the change I would make is using kbe manipulator to add odbc to kbe instead of installing it each time on the fly.

    Corey commented  · 

    There is a post on ITNinja that outlines doing this, but can't find the post right now, I'll update when I find it.

    The get/set computername script now looks at the host_name field on the K2, check out the readme.

    Look for an updated version of Get/Set ComputerName in the next coming weeks that will have this feature.

    You could technically enter the computername in the host section of inventory, then use kbem to upload a kbe with odbc in it, and query the db for the host name of said computer...

    We’re looking at this after we get more K1000 synchronization built into the K2000.

    or what if the user deploying was logged by the k2 boot actions? That would probably be easier to tackle initially

    Depending on the application you want to use, I personally store them on petemp, which is accessible via /opt/kace/petemp in netboot environment. Most applications will run.

    @carlos use KBE_Manipulator for a GUI to upload custom boot images.

    Corey commented  · 

    3.4 will have an add-on toolkit called Kace Native Imaging, so you can capture/deploy .wim files for faster mass deployments.

    I can't say the stuff you eluded to in the 2nd paragraph ;) or how ghost is a portable app.

    Corey commented  · 

    Ravi,
    Why not deploy the ghost image, and then without rebooting capture with Kimage, or .wim with 3.4?

    Corey commented  · 

    Joe,

    This will be possible with KBE Manipulator, an add-on to 3.4. You can add DCCTK to your KBE along with ODBC drivers, you just need dcctk installed on the same machine you are using to build a kbe with waik, media manager, and kbe manipulator.
