Hello all, I've made a boot environment for Mac (OS 10.6) I see it under Deployments -> Boot environments.
I'm trying to have a Imac to boot on the kace netboot, but to no avail. In the startup disk of the sys pref, I see the KBOX 2000 NetBoot Network Disk. So I chose this one, restart, the screen is Blank, after a while I gt the rotating world and after another while it starts on the HD. I didn't find any clue as what I'm doing wrong here....

I have read what's here -> http://www.kace.com/support/konference/2010/files/Mac-Imaging-with-K2000-Systems-Deployment-Appliance.pdf and I did everything that's in there, only when I boot, the kbox imaging utiliy does not show up. It's just a blank screen and after a while the blinking earth...

  • It could be that you need to select that boot environment as the default. It should be under settings and general settings. I had this issue when I started as well. The other possibility is if the IMac is a newer computer than the one you used to make the netboot environment. You should always use the newest Mac in your environment. I am relatively new to K imaging as well and I am the Mac guy at my college so I'm going thru the process as well.
  • Just spoke to the Kace Management and Developer Team. They do not fully support netbooting across subnets using iphelper. They also do NOT have it in the que for a future feature release. They believe that using an RSA on every vlan is adequate. The only way they will consider this important is based on votes. I found out we have to vote on things like this. I can't believe they consider booting outside of your imaging servers vlan as a "feature". Oh well, it's their rules, we just pay for them....

Did you create the Netboot environment on the type of machine your trying to netboot?

Also make sure your using the correct media for that computer.
