Introducing AppDetails.com

Hello all!

I left KACE/Dell/Quest a few months ago and am no longer involved with ITNinja. However, I have recently created a new community at AppDetails.com

ITNinja is and will remain the place for discussing KACE products! This is a great community that I'm happy to have played a large part in. Long term plans I cannot speak for, but to my knowledge there is no plan to make any changes to the ITNinja community which has been operating pretty much on its own now thanks to its valuable moderators. I have addressed the "what does this mean for ITNinja" question here if you would like to read more on the topic: http://www.appdetails.com/2017/02/01/what-about-itninja/

So while the KACE conversation should remain right here, I wanted to share a little about what is going on over at AppDetails for your consideration...
  • Software Tips - AppDetails is home to a software tip library, which has been established for the sharing of any related tips of interest to the IT community. A familiar concept to those that knew AppDeploy (and now ITNinja), but it is something that I originally conceived and wanted to bring with me to AppDetails. 
  • Articles - You can browse overviews of every management product on the market, keep up with the latest industry news, new product releases, and enjoy technical reviews. I've written over 50 such articles already and have published my current backlogs for additional products and companies to be covered in the forums. 
  • Message Boards - Naturally, a place to discuss related topics is provided. This time back in the AppDeploy style of a traditional message board (versus a Q&A system). Here you can make friends, join groups and send private messages. 
  • Events - AppDetails offers a crowd sourced event calendar for all in person and online events relevant to the topic of application and systems management.
  • Software - The site also features a growing catalog of management solutions (including KACE) were you can register your interest for a free pre-sales discussion with yours truly. 
  • Services - Similar goes for anyone needing help creating packages, managing systems, responding to an audit, etc. I've established connections with some of the best providers in the industry and can make referrals based on your needs, locale and budget.
It has a point system for participation and those points can be earned to move up in rank and compete with your peers much as you can here at ITNinja. As an added value, the points at AppDetails can be used to purchase real rewards in the AppDetails shop (only a couple of items are in there now, but more are to come). This community just launched a week ago so now is the time to establish a relatively easy lead! Visit this page for more on the point system.  

Please know that I'm not looking to steal you from ITNinja, it is hands down the best place to discuss KACE topics. It is a great community and I hope it remains so. That said, I am hoping that you will also come and take part in this new endeavor as a place to discuss broader systems and application management topics.

Sincerely,
Bob Kelly

Knowledge Base Article Reports

Here are some knowledge base article reports I’ve created in my environment as well as some modifications that you could make to them.

 

Title: Knowledge Base Articles with rating less than 4

Description: Report will contain a list of KB articles with a rating less than 4. Note less than 4 doesn’t include 4. Ordered By KB Article Views

 

SQL:

SELECT ADVISORY.TITLE,

ADVISORY_RATINGS.RATING,

ADVISORY_RATINGS.PAGE_VIEWS,

ADVISORY_RATINGS.LAST_VIEW

FROM ADVISORY

LEFT JOIN ADVISORY_RATINGS on ADVISORY.ID = ADVISORY_RATINGS.ID

WHERE ADVISORY_RATINGS.RATING < 4

ORDER BY ADVISORY_RATINGS.PAGE_VIEWS

 

 

If you wish to see all KB articles Ordered By their Page Views simply remove the “WHERE ADVISORY_RATINGS.RATING < 4”. This will list all KB articles.

One could also modify the WHERE statement to focus on page views instead of user ratings of the article. The example below is the same report but the WHERE statement is looking for articles with less than 100 views. You can change or adjust this as you wish.

EX SQL:

SELECT ADVISORY.TITLE,

ADVISORY_RATINGS.RATING,

ADVISORY_RATINGS.PAGE_VIEWS,

ADVISORY_RATINGS.LAST_VIEW

FROM ADVISORY

LEFT JOIN ADVISORY_RATINGS on ADVISORY.ID = ADVISORY_RATINGS.ID

WHERE ADVISORY_RATINGS.PAGE_VIEWS < 100

ORDER BY ADVISORY_RATINGS.RATING

Move Mac and Windows BootCamp Partition to another Drive

Summary: This how-to based article explains the procedure to move Mac and Windows BootCamp partitions from two different hard drives to a single hard drive without having the need to format either. The post suggests using Stellar Drive Clone to clone both partitions before performing the shift.

One of our end users came up with a query where he had two decent sized working hard drives, one running Mac OS X (GUID partition table) and one running Windows (MBR scheme). As he wanted to install both operating systems on a single large sized hard drive but didn’t wish to reinstall either of the operating systems, he wanted a solution where he could safely copy both the partitions into another drive. We provided the below solution as an affirmative response.

Steps to move Mac and Windows partition to another drive

Follow the steps below:

Step 1) Firstly, clone Mac hard drive and back up the BootCamp partition using Stellar Drive Clone software. It is the safest hard drive cloning utility available in the market and it comes with several benefits: the ability to create a disk image of entire Mac hard drive, Solid State Drives, Partitions, External Hard Drives, backing up your entire Mac including the BootCamp partitions, restoring from disk image, etc. Since the software supports HFS-to-HFS, FAT-to-FAT, and NTFS-to-EXFAT cloning, it should be ideal to perform cloning for both your Mac and Windows partitions that need to be moved.

Step 2) When the clones have been created, reboot from your cloned Mac OSX installation and prepare to repartition the hard drive on which you want to install both the operating systems. Let’s call it ‘Target.’

Step 3) Create at least 2 partitions on Target keeping in mind that the Mac volume needs to be formatted using the GUID, a journaled file system.

Note: If you’re using OS X 10.7 Lion and want to retain the hidden recovery partition, you may have to reinstall Lion and restore from your backup. Thereafter, you can proceed with BootCamp installation.

Step 4) Clone back the OSX Installation that you booted from to the Mac partition on Target.

Step 5) Do the equivalent process for your Windows installation.

Step 6) Boot into each partition and test to make sure everything works as expected.

Conclusion

With these steps, you should have both Mac and Windows installed on a single drive if you’ve followed all the above steps diligently. However, if you have any doubts before you begin, please share it in our ‘Comments Section’ and we would be glad to answer to your queries at the earliest possible time.
