Bob Kelly to Deliver Keynote at This Year's Application Management Event


I'm happy to announce that I'll be speaking at this year's AppManagEvent in Utrecht. You may know this as it's former name: the Packaging Event.  In much the same way AppDeploy opted for a broader name, the event name has been updated to better communicate its focus on all things related to software (such as virtualization, compatibility, packaging, deployment, management, etc.). 

I've had the honor of participating a few times in the past, delivering sessions and keynotes. This year I'm excited to be delivering the opening keynote for the event on the topic of how to apply agile methodology to the packaging and deployment process. No matter the size of your team, delivering quality work on schedule is a significant challenge. I wrote a blog post on how one can lean on some of the processes proposed by Scrum in order to help address these challenges. In this session, I will be breaking that down further with more suggestions and examples on how to make it work best for your organization. 

This is a fun event, and what I have always pictured an AppDeploy/ITNinja event to be if we had one. Entrance to the event is free, so you need only talk your employer into covering your travel costs! I hope to see you there!

Deploying image with K2000 Version 3.6.98680 - Problems not having with previous version

We have just performed the upgrade to 3.6.98680 and are now having a ton of issues:

 

1) Non-SYSPREP Dell Latitude 3440

- After Image deploys to machine, computer try's to auto boot into the user account like normal. Error comes up that the password for the user account has expired and needs to be changed. ( started to happen after upgrading to 3.6.98680)

2) SYSPREP Dell OptiPlex 3010

- After the Image deploys and reboots into new deployed image, everything is in a optimized windows 7 classic mode ( started to happen after the update to 3.6.98680)

I will update with more updates

KACE 1000 6.0 Single Sign On and LDAP Tip

Kace 1000's Single Sin On default settings had some issues detecting my Windows 7 user logon accounts.
After joining and enabling Active Directory Single Sign On users still had to type their username and password in order to access the helpdesk. 
Perplexed by this I referred to the access logs and found that the usernames were being detected properly as "username@domain.com".
However the usernames are incompatible with the default LDAP Authentication filter "(samaccountname=KBOX_USER)".

As such I updated the LDAP filter as follows.
  1. Settings > Control Panel > Authentication Setting
  2. Edit - LDAP Authentication
  3. Modify Search Filter - 
    "(|(samaccountname=KBOX_USER)(mail=KBOX_USER))"
  4. Click - Save






So as to be more specific with user authentication.
We'll limit LDAP to users that are members of certain user groups and with enabled user accounts using the following LDAP query.

(&(|(samaccountname=KBOX_USER)(mail=KBOX_USER))(&(!(userAccountControl:1.2.840.113556.1.4.803:=2))(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=user))(|(memberOf=cn=Contractors,ou=Security Groups,ou=UserGroups,dc=domain,dc=com)(memberOf=cn=Employees,ou=Security Groups,ou=UserGroups,dc=domain,dc=com)))
