How to specify what KBE to use with each automated deployment?
Our company utilises many different operating systems across many different laptops and we require deploying different OS images to machines all the time. As such, just having a "default KBE" doesn't make any sense. How do we modify what KBE is utilised with each image deployment without having to change the default everytime.
Thanks in advance,

From a KACE perspective this is relatively simple, the answer is windows or apple, as such do not think of the KBE as being OS specific, more a means to an end. In saying that I mean that the KBE is loaded by the machine so that you can then load a new image of your selected OS or carry out a scripted installation. It makes no difference what OS that KBE is defined as it is transitory, so as long as it loads it enables the K2 to start and then deploy your chosen OS.
A default KBE with the correct, generic hardware drivers, will allow you to boot any windows device and load any version of OS that you have stored i.e. windows 7, 8 or 10.
Apple of course is much the same, as long as you have a valid Netboot partition for the latest OSX, any apple hardware will load and you will be able to deploy your chosen image.
I hope that makes sense?
