Install default software from K1000 during K2000 deployment

Within the K1000 you'll have all your managed installation. If you want to install your software during the deployment within the K2000 during a special task here is how:

  1. Create a K1000 Script which calls all of your software you want to install in a single task (note: you can create different scripts for different K2000 deployment sets)
  2. Call the K1000 script(s) as a postinstall task in your K2000 deployment.
When you create the K1000 scripts take note about the scriptid (see screenshots).

After that you have to create a post install task which calls the script id:

The executable is a autoit script created by myself. You can download, use and modify it the way you like. 
You can download it here: DOWNLOAD Version 1.0

Screenshots during deployment:
If there is no connection to the K1000 this warning will show until a connection is established.

Godmode is alive and well in Windows 10

Bring all your utilities under one menu in Windows 10 by enabling the Godmode Folder. (Introduced in Windows 7)

On the root of the system drive create a folder and name it
GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

You can then pin that folder to your start menu or task bar.

K1000 running a script only if targets are online

Running your K1-scripts periodically is a great feature for solving different task all over your to do list. If don't want the script engine to start if there is no target pc online & connected to your K1 here is something for you: 
Scenario:
You have a K1-Script which is running periodically to all your Ubuntu devices to check their updates. The script engine should only start if there are Ubuntu devices online & connected to your K1. 

What is the main function?
If you implement this solution the K1 will automatically Enable or Disable the script. The SQL task will have minor impact to the system performance than the script engine testing every device connection.

How?
You need to create two SQL-TicketRules which are running for example every 15 minutes:

Enable Rule:

Please change the highlighted parts with ID's of your environment

Select SQL:

SELECT * FROM (
SELECT COUNT(LABEL.ID)
FROM ((ORG1.MACHINE MACHINE
         INNER JOIN KBSYS.SMMP_CONNECTION SMMP_CONNECTION
            ON (MACHINE.KUID = SMMP_CONNECTION.KUID))
        INNER JOIN ORG1.MACHINE_LABEL_JT MACHINE_LABEL_JT
           ON (MACHINE_LABEL_JT.MACHINE_ID = MACHINE.ID))
       INNER JOIN ORG1.LABEL LABEL ON (LABEL.ID = MACHINE_LABEL_JT.LABEL_ID)
 WHERE (LABEL.ID = **YOURLABELIDHERE**) AND (SMMP_CONNECTION.CLIENT_CONNECTED = 1)
 ) as x
 WHERE `COUNT(LABEL.ID)` = 1

Run update Query:

UPDATE KBOT SET ENABLED = '1' WHERE ID = **YOURSCRIPTIDHERE**

Disable Rule:

 WHERE (LABEL.ID = **YOURLABELIDHERE**) AND (SMMP_CONNECTION.CLIENT_CONNECTED = 1)
 ) as x
 WHERE `COUNT(LABEL.ID)` = 1

Run update Query:

UPDATE KBOT SET ENABLED = '1' WHERE ID = **YOURSCRIPTIDHERE**

**edit** 
Thanks to Steve: If you want it quicker you can create a label only for this if you are using the smartlabel wizard:

How to Transfer Data from Android to iPhone Device

It is always painful to switch data from one mobile phone to other, but today it is much easier to transfer data from an Android phone to your new iPhone. Apple Move to iOS app available in the Google app store makes it easier to complete the transfer process between an iOS and Android smartphone. Though it can’t transfer user passwords, music, etc., can quickly move all the text messages, photos, videos, calendar, etc.

The Move to iOS app provides support for all the major phones and tablets which are running Android 4.0 or later version. It can also transfer data to devices running iOS 9 or later version.

But, before you start data moving process from Android to your iPhone, try to make sure that you have below-mentioned requirements available

  • iOS 9 or later version
  • iPhone 5 or later version
  • iPad 4th generation or later version
  • iPad mini 2nd generation or later version
  • iPod touches 6th generation
  • Android version 4.0 or later version 
Steps to be performed before starting

  1. On your Android, make sure that your Wi-Fi is ON. 
  2. Plug your new iOS device and your Android into power.
  3. Make sure the content you're moving, including what's on your external Micro SD card, will fit on your new iOS device
  4. If you want to transfer your Chrome bookmarks, update it to the latest version and then start transporting process
Now, perform the below-mentioned steps

1) Tap move data from Android
 
At the time of setting up your new iOS device, first, look for the Apps and data screen. Then, tab moves data from Android. If you have not finished the setup, you need to erase your iOS device and then start over.

2) Open the Move to iOS app

From your Android device, open the Move to iOS app and tap Continue to proceed further. Also, read all the terms and conditions that appear. Tap Agree to continue, then taps Next in the top-right corner of the Find Your Code screen.
 
3) Wait for a code

On your iOS phone, tap Continue on the screen called Move from Android. Then wait for a ten-digit code to appear. If your Android device shows an alert, that you have a weak Internet connection, you can simply ignore the warning message.
 
4) Use the code

After, entering the required code on your Android device, wait for a period for the data transfer screen to appear.
  
5) Choose your content wisely and then wait

On your Android smartphone, select the type of content that you want to move and tap Next. Then leave aside both these devices intact until you see the loading bar that appears on your iOS device finishes.

Here's what gets transferred: photos, videos, audio, text message, contacts, etc. Some of your free apps will transfer if they're available on both Google Play and the App Store. After the data transfer process gets completed, you can download any free apps that were matched from the App Store. Any matched paid apps will appear in your iTunes Wishlist. 
 
6) Finally, set up your iOS device

Once loading bar gets completed on your iOS device, tap Done from your Android device. Then, tap Continue on your iOS device.

Once data transfer process is accomplished successfully from an Android to iPhone smartphone, enable iCloud backup so that iPhone or another iOS device backup all your received files to iCloud. You must fully organize your data backup in order to avoid loss of transferred files else an iPhone data recovery software will help you restore the digital loss from an iPhones memory or iCloud account.
