Alternatively, you can use the KACE Media Manager to upload files. However, Quest recommends that you use this page to upload .iso files for some platforms (such as CentOS) because Microsoft Windows causes the file names to become truncated.

Choosing the type of deployment

Choosing the type of deployment

You can deploy the operating system to different devices models, and the appliance will pull the drivers from its resource library for scripted installation deployments. You can copy the state of a device, such as all of the drives, the OS and system settings, programs, and files to perform system image deployments.

Scripted installation deployments

Use a scripted installation when using an ISO for the OS and create an answer file for the deployment.

System image deployments

Capture an image from a device including all of the device drives, the OS, system settings, programs, and files.

Deployment methods

Automated Deployments: Uses boot actions to initiate scripted installation and system images deployments. Supports unicast and multicast deployments.
Manual Deployments: Use manual deployments when deploying directly from the source media, for USB image deployments when the target device is not connected to the network.
