Import appliance components

Import appliance components

You can import components stored in a different location or on a different K2000 appliance directly on to any K2000 appliance if the package containing the components is smaller than 1.5GB.

If you exported the database, only the Quest KACE Technical Support team can re-import the database back to the K2000 appliance.

1.
On the left navigation pane, click Settings to expand the section, then click Package Management to display the Package Management page.
2.
Click Import K2000 Packages to display the Import List page.
4.
Select Choose Action > Import Selected.

The new components appear on the Package Management > Import List page.

Package components to export

Package components to export

You can export the components stored on the appliance, such as drivers, network inventory, boot environments, and tasks to a different network location. This is useful to back up and restore components.

You can export the database, but you cannot re-import the database. Exporting components from the K2000 appliance is an internal task and cannot run in tandem with other internal tasks, such as re-caching drivers, creating scripted installations, or rebuilding boot environments.

1.
On the left navigation pane, click Settings to expand the section, then click Package Management to display the Package Management page.
2.
Click Export K2000 Packages to display the Export List page.

The selected export items are compressed and placed in the \K2000_hostname\restore share directory. The K2000 appliance creates a .pkg file for each component that you select.

4.
Select Choose Action > Export Selected.

The packaging process starts. Exporting packages might take a few minutes to several hours to complete depending on the size of the file. The Status column indicates when each export completes.

NOTE: If the status column shows Completed or Exporting next to each component, but the Currently : status in the upper-right corner displays Idle, contact the Quest KACE Technical Support to access your K2000 appliance through the tether and clear the error.

Managing disk space

You can view the Disk Usage pie chart on the appliance Dashboard to verify how much storage space is available on your K2000 appliance. You can migrate data on the physical K2000 appliance to an offboard-storage device, and migrate data stored on the virtual K2000 appliance or Remote Site Appliance (RSA) to an additional virtual disk to free up space. You can also delete unused images, boot environments, source media, and tasks.

Verify available disk space

Verify available disk space

For optimal performance, the appliance requires approximately 20 percent free disk space. You can verify the available disk space from the Disk Usage pie chart on the Dashboard.

1.
Go to the Dashboard.
The Disk Usage pie chart displays a view of the storage information, which is updated every 10 minutes and every 60 minutes when storage is offboard.
