Hi All,

I am very new to the Dell Kace system....

Within my company i use a product called patchlink to deploy windows updates and other custom patch's apps etc.

I know i should be able to send out apps to machines registered with Kace however not i am not sure is if i will be able to send out any windows updates via Kace. Does anyone know if this is possible??

What about the use of a "Golden Image" for maintaining the updates prior to deploying an updated image.

Based on what I learned everytime I push an image it essentially re-installs the operating system and I was hoping to get away from dealing with 37+ updates when I start the machine.

The idea of a "golden image" is to have all the application and machine settings configured per your requirements.

What you can do is capture your image with all the updates installed for your OS at the time of the image.

Every couple of months redeploy the image and update the machine again.

Run sysprep and recapture.

Thanks to the KBOX's use of Deduplication the only thing that you will be re-uploading will be the new updates.

Since most of the files will already be present on the KBOX, this new capture should complete in just a few minutes (depending on your network and the size of the image).
