Hi,

I will be soon rolling out some new images from K2000. Is there a way to see in K1000 which image a particular client has installed? 

This would be particularly useful to see which clients need updating, or if a particular image is causing a common problem.

Thanks

I added a registry set to the software so it shows up in the k1000 as a software item.

I run a batch file to sysprep the machines that also edits the oem background picture I set and pokes the registry to create a fake software install to list my version in the k1000.

see http://www.itninja.com/blog/view/setting-up-custom-logon-background-wallpaper-and-user-icon-for-a-windows-7-image on setting up oem background.

in the bottom corner of all my oem backgrounds I place a tag

this is the reg file I poke in

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\TMCC IMAGE INFO]
"Comments"="changes to office 2013, vnc, mailto"
"Contact"="SMal"
"DisplayVersion"="64Admin Desktop 061013"
"HelpTelephone"="57800"
"Publisher"="WIM file AD64061013"
"DisplayName"="TMCC Admin Image"
"Readme"="The Display Version is the K2000 image name"

We do something similar to SMal with custom inventory. However, we use the contents of the K2000_Deployment_Info.conf file, and save it to the registry as a Postinstall Task. We then have a Custom Inventory item on our K1000 that retreives that info. We not only save the Image Name but also the Image Date.

On the K2000 Reports tab there is an Image Deploy Log which may be helpful...you could compare the mac address to when it was last imaged.
