We are doing our annual reimaging of all our desktop computers, and I'd like to be able to pull up an advanced search or a report in KACE of which computers have/haven't been reimaged so far.  I thought that once they're reimaged and KACE is reinstalled on them, the Date Created field would change to reflect the new "enrollment" date, but it doesn't.  Is there any way to pull up a list of newly imaged computers by searching a field or something?  Or is there a registry entry we can check?  There isn't really too much new software on this image over last year - we wipe them more to clean out the junk that students put on the computers.  Any ideas??

It is working as designed that the new device takes over the old record.
A smart idea would be to have a file created during the imaging process and checking for the timestamp of this file.
C:\ProgramData\Dell\Kace\k2000_deployment.conf would be an ideal candidate because it is created during the deployment with the K2000 SDA.

  • Agreed. It would have been smart, but I didn't think this would be an issue before we started imaging. We do that with our macs, but since I thought the Date Created field would auto-update, I assumed it wasn't necessary.
    We're more than halfway through now and it's too late to do that, unless there's a file like the one you listed that automatically gets created. We have a K1000 box though and the only config file in that directory is amp.conf. On the computer I'm currently sitting at, the created/modified date is 2 days ago, but KACE has been installed on here for a while. Any other files that get created during install and then left alone after that?

I found an option.  I can just create a report that searches based on "OS installed on" date. That should work...
