Preparing for capture

Preparing for capture

Follow the best practices for capturing images, such as ensuring that the image is up-to date and that there is enough space on the appliance for the image.

The Quest KACE Support team provides best practices for capturing images. For more information, see, https://support.quest.com/kace-systems-deployment-appliance/kb/121734.

Best practices to prepare for capturing images for deployment:

Capture system images

Capture system images

You can capture images with the KACE Systems Deployment Appliance or remote (RSA) appliances, after you boot the device in to the KACE Boot Environment (KBE).

After the device boots in to the KBE, you can access the built-in VNC remote control software to capture images from remote devices to the KACE Systems Deployment Appliance.

2.
Click Capture image of this device.
3.
In Image Name, enter a name that identifies the image on the appliance.
4.
In Image Type, select the type of the image file that you want to create, as required.
6.
Click Force continue on errors to continue the capture and the upload process even if warnings and fatal errors occur.
7.
Click Include debug output in log to enable debugging level logging and upload the logs to the Appliance Logs page.
8.
Click Start capture.
When the capture process is complete, a new system image entry appears on the System Images page in the KACE Systems Deployment Appliance Administrator Console, and also in the Remote Site Console, if the image is captured using an RSA.
