Set default KBE for the RSA

Set default KBE for the RSA

You can set a default KACE Boot Environment (KBE) for the Remote Site Appliance (RSA).

When you select a default KBE for the RSA, this is indicated on the Remote Site Detail page, under Boot Environments. For more information about this page, see the associated help page.

1.
On the left navigation pane, click Settings to display the Control Panel, then click Remote Site Settings to display the Remote Site Settings page.
2.
Under Default RSA Boot Environments, select the default KBE for each OS architecture, as required.
3.
Click Save.

Review RSA settings

Review RSA settings

You can add the RSA to the KACE Systems Deployment Appliance Administrator Console to enable you to synchronize the components to deploy at the remote site. The RSA extends only one KACE Systems Deployment Appliance; however, there is no limit to the number of RSAs that you can add to the KACE Systems Deployment Appliance.

You can synchronize scripted installations, system images, boot environments, and user states to the RSA.

When you synchronize a linked RSA with the KACE Systems Deployment Appliance, any user states on the appliance also appear on the User States list page in the KACE Remote Appliance Administrator Console. When you review individual user state contents, the ability to edit applicable fields and log contents are only available for those user states that are captured locally, but not for any of the user states captured on a linked appliance.

Pre-installation and post-installation tasks that deployments use are considered dependencies, and are automatically pushed to the RSA.

1.
On the left navigation pane, click Deployments, then click Remote Sites to display the Remote Site Appliances page.
2.
On the Remote Site Appliances page, click the Host Name column of the RSA whose settings you want to review.
3.
On the Remote Site Detail page, scroll down to Boot Environments. Synchronize the boot environment to network boot the remote devices to the RSA, and to test the RSA configuration. Then select the other components that you want to synchronize to the RSA.
4.
Review the options listed under Scripted Installations, System Images, and User States, and ensure that only those components that you want to deploy are selected.
When you view this page in the KACE Systems Deployment Appliance Administrator Console, any system images already captured by the RSA, and not the KACE Systems Deployment Appliance, are listed under System Images, however these options appear disabled. That is because these images already exist on that RSA and cannot be removed by simply clearing these options synchronizing it with the KACE v.
5.
Scroll down to Dependencies and click Show. Review the options listed here, to ensure that only those components that you want to deploy are selected.
For example, the USMT Toolkit option in this section appears disabled. The USMT Toolkit allows you to capture user states. When you synchronize the RSA with the KACE Systems Deployment Appliance, and the USMT Toolkit is already uploaded to the KACE Systems Deployment Appliance, the USMT Toolkit is added to the RSA, allowing it to capture user states. You cannot clear this option. For information on how to upload the USMT Toolkit to the KACE Systems Deployment Appliance, see Upload USMT software from Media Manager.
a.
Upgrade Status: Indicates if the RSA is up to date.
Current Version: Displays the current RSA version.
Last Check: Shows the date and time the RSA version was checked.
License Synced: Indicates if the RSA license matches the license specified on the associated KACE Systems Deployment Appliance.
b.
To check the RSA version, click Check Remote Site Version.
TIP: You can also synchronize the license on the Remote Site Appliances page by selecting one or more appliances in the list and selecting Choose Action > Sync License. Similarly, to synchronize the data on one or more RSAs with the data on the associated KACE Systems Deployment Appliance, select Choose Action > Sync Data.
Save and Sync is disabled if:
If the RSA and linked KACE Systems Deployment Appliance do not have a matching license. To enable it, under Upgrade Remote Site, click Sync License. When the license is successfully synchronized, click Save and Sync. You can also synchronize the licenses of multiple RSAs on the Remote Site Appliances list page. To do that, select them in the list and click Choose Action > Sync License.
If the RSA is not on the same version as the linked KACE Systems Deployment Appliance. To update it, click Upgrade Remote Site. When the RSA is successfully upgraded, click Save and Sync. You can also upgrade multiple RSAs on the Remote Site Appliances list page. To do that, select them in the list and click Choose Action > Upgrade.

Next steps

You can use the newly added RSA to capture or deploy system images, scan user states and create USMT templates, create boot actions, or to import or export packages containing system images.

For complete information, see the following topics:

Importing and exporting appliance components

You can import and export KACE Systems Deployment Appliance or Remote Site Appliance (RSA) components, such as drivers, network inventory, boot environments, and tasks to a different network location, a different appliance, or an RSA, using packaging.

When importing and exporting components, the appliance picks up packages from the appliance restore share directory. When you create a package, the .pkg file contains the index.xml file with the package metadata and the package files are saved in the \\appliance_host_name\restore share directory.

Packages can be large because they contain full disk images or entire operating systems. Keep the package files together when storing and copying them from the appliance to other network locations.
