Managing custom deployments

You can use custom Windows deployments to capture and run a collection of specific tasks that you want to apply to a user's system, instead of deploying a brand-new image to the system which requires deleting the contents of the target device.

For example, you can use a custom deployment template to bring in a user's system just to capture their profile using USMT (User State Migration Tool), and to migrate it to another system, before shutting down the original system. Another example for using custom deployments is to simply upgrade a system's OS, without applying a new image.

NOTE: Custom deployments marked as hidden from KBE do not appear in the Deployment drop-down list on the Automated Deployment Detail page when creating a boot action.

Managing offline deployments

KACE Systems Deployment Appliance allows you to create an offline deployment downloadable as an ISO that can be installed directly to a USB drive. WIM files are split into 3.5 Gb file so that they can be placed on a FAT32 system for UEFI deployments.

The Offline Deployments list page shows all offline deployments that exist on the appliance. From here, you can create a new offline deployment.
