Choosing the type of deployment

Choosing the type of deployment

You can deploy the operating system to different devices models, and the K2000 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.

Managing device inventory

When a device boots in to the K2000 Boot Environment (KBE), the appliance identifies the device by its MAC address and lists the device on the Device Inventory page. The appliance lists devices that are on the network, but have not booted in to the appliance on the Network Inventory page.
