Can anyone share the prerequisites and best Practices for Taking System Image Backup and System Image Deployment using Kace k2000?
Do i need to take image backup of all the volumes Plus system reserved ? or C:Drive is enough?

  • The customer wants to take system images backups of 500-1000 Desktops/Laptops
  • I am planning to use Hyper-V Image of k2000.

    I want to know the processor ,memory,network Interface and Disk Space required for this ?

I think that depends on what you are trying to accomplish. Generally best practice includes running sysprep on the system before uploading the image. We normally just capture the C: drive and when deploying we wipe whatever is on the drive because we aren't concerned with preserving any recovery volumes.

Based on your other post about storing 500 - 1000 images I don't think that you are using the appliance to create images for mass deployment, however. Are you planning to use the K2000 as a backup solution?
