Maintain the KUID of a system during the imaging process

Description

A duplicate asset of a system may appear on the K1000 if the system gets a new KUID.

Cause

If the KUID of a system is not maintained, then an install of the agent to a re-imaged machine may create a duplicate asset on the K1000 as the agent creates a new KUID.

Solution

**Windows

Starting with version 3.5, the K2000 will now get the KUID of a system, store it temporarily and then copy it to the workstation after deployment.
If you wish for the KUID to be applied to the system as a post installation task, then you need to add the built in post install task, "Apply KUID to KBOX1000 Agent."


*Mac
 
For the Macintosh, we have some scripts that can used to implement this process.
Get KUID
Open the get_kuid.sh file any text editor. Select all the text, and copy it to the clipboard. Create a new preinstall shell script and paste your text, then save.
Copy KUID
Open the copy_kuid.sh file any text editor. Select all the text, and copy it to the clipboard. Create a new postinstall shell script, check the box to run in K2000 Mac Boot Environment, and paste your text, then save.
