KACE Product Support Question

Mac OS X 10.8 deployment on K2000 and agent support on K1000

07/25/2012 5342 views

OS X 10.8 has officially landed as of this morning. We're in the process of downloading a copy to start testing against, but was wondering if anyone has heard the official word from Kace about 10.8 support on the K2000 for image deployments? Also, any news on if/when the K1000 will have official agent support for OS X 10.8?

10.8 might have official support with the 5.4 release of the k1000 later this year.

The agent will install and MI/scripting works in my limited testing.  OS inventory and patching won't work until the agent officially supports Mountain Lion.

I'm not a K2000 person, but unless there's anything radically different in ML, I don't see why it wouldn't work for imaging.  It's not officially supported in the 3.4 release though.

You should be able to capture an image of ML with the 10.7.4 nbi.

At the moment, I'm not getting the NetBoot image to build using the K2000 media manager.
Worked fine last week using 10.7 and the K2000 Media manager.
I suspect Apple changed just enough in 10.8 to make it rough for IT for awhile.

I just received 530 new Macbook Air's.  I am hoping that the support for these come quickly!

  • I have had success in installing the k1 agent on my test machine (though some command line modification of the package is required). The machine pops into inventory and displays most information correctly, but the OS Name is showing (x86). This at least allows the machines to be populated into my k1 for inventory purposes. I can always update them with ARD if needed. Again I am hoping to get in on some kind of a beta test here or something. My 10.8 numbers have increased slightly and I now have 575 machines to setup and deploy quickly.
