get image file automatically from closest server

When creating a preboot bundle in zcc, there you have to enter a explicit path to image file. So when preboot bundle comes down to the workstation, the workstation will receive the zmg-imagefile only from this specifically configured server in the preboot bundle.

Would be very useful to have an option/variable in preboot bundle, which allows to set the source of imagefile dynamically, so clients automatically address their configured satellite server to get the image-file in their location.

Yes. This should be in the product, even if you can work around this using DNS or scripting.
