Imaging Mac devices

The K2000 provides the K2000 Imaging Utility, which enables you to capture images and to perform unicast deployments. You can perform multicast deployments from the KACE Systems Deployment Appliance Administrator Console if your network configuration supports multicast routing.

The K2000 Media Manager enables you to create a NetBoot image of the Mac OS X hard disk that the K2000 puts into memory. The NetBoot image enables you to capture the image as a system image for deployment. The integrated NetBoot server enables network-based image deployments to Mac devices that are on the same subnet as the K2000 appliance. You can use the K2000 Remote Site Appliance (RSA) to boot images to devices on different subnets if the RSA is synchronized with the appliance.

Mac OS X deployments do not support user state migrations, scripted installations, or the driver share and driver compatibility report.
