We have a group that we are working on off-loading a process to. And part of that process is imaging a PC with one of a key set of images. We want to try to limit the list of images they get to pick from down to this key set. Is there a way I can do this with labels or a custom KBE? Or would we need to setup an RSA just for this group and load the images for that group on the RSA? If that is the case can the K2000 and RSA be on the same network? I'm trying to find a way to stay away from the RSA if at all possible (as i don't think my boss is going to like the idea of useing up ESXi space for this). Please let me know of any ideas or out of the box options there maybe with this.

Thanks!

I believe setting up an RSA is the only way to pick and choose which KBEs you want people to see.  But fortunately it's very easy and can be on the same network, just redirect your DHCP Option 66 to the IP of the RSA.

You can use the KBE manipulator and build a custom KBE that will boot to a RSA. Then have that subset of images on that RSA.

  • Good idea, I forgot about that. Make a custom KBE that statically boots to whatever IP you choose.

If you use my method of storing the wims externally you can control access via windows group security to the shares they are stored on

  • That is another good method of control that I forgot we actually use to some extent. We map the T: drive to a server share, and within that share grant specific rights to different folders. But specifically for what images are available in the KACE dropdown menu, I agree with dugullett's solution.
