Once all the task are successfully completed you will see a confirmation window. After creating our Deployment Share we must import the operating system we want to deploy.To begin we will import a Windows Server 2012 R2 Datacenter ISO. First, you should mount the ISO of the operating system you want to import in order to be able to access some files inside the ISO. In your Deployment Share right click on Operating System and then on Import Operating System.We will now create the folder, called Deployment Share in which we will store our images, Task Sequences, etc.Make a rightclick on Deployment Share and click on New Deployment Share.For creating reference images, I like to set up a local account on the MDT server that can be used for authenticating to the Deployment Share.If you want to do this, there are a few things you’ll need to know: At this point, you’ll want to right-click on your Deployment Share and choose Update Deployment Share.as they are sometimes called on Facebook, but here’s something on the lighter side.
Both files can be accessed one of two ways: [Settings] Priority=Default [Default] _SMSTSORGNAME=Reference Image Creator OSInstall=Y User Data Location=NONE Join Work Group=WORKGROUP Time Zone Name=Eastern Standard Time Finish Action=SHUTDOWN Do Not Create Extra Partition=YES Apply GPOPack=NO SLShare=\MDT01\logs$ WSUSServer= Do Capture=YES Computer Backup Location=NETWORK Backup Share=\MDT01\MDTReference Build$ Backup Dir=Captures Backup File=%Task Sequence ID%_#month(date) & "-" & day(date) & "-" & year(date)#Skip Admin Password=YES Skip Applications=YES Skip Apps On Upgrade=YES Skip Bit Locker=YES Skip Capture=NO Skip Computer Name=YES Skip Domain Membership=YES Skip Final Summary=NO Skip Locale Selection=YES Skip Product Key=YES Skip Roles=YES Skip Summary=YES Skip Task Sequence=NO Skip Time Zone=YES Skip User Data=YES In the Bootstrap.ini, you may have noticed that I had a local user account on the MDT server.The current version of this free deployment tool is Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2010 with Update 1. Ensure that the option “Ask if an image should be captured” is checked and click on “Next”. Another option we can select in this stage is if we are going to let users who are deploying an image can set the local administrator password. Leave deselected also the option for “Ask user for a product key”. Once the deployment share is created, the next step is to add the files from the Windows 7 image. This latest update brings some nice improvements: As in the previous set of posts, using the final and latest version of MDT 2010, we will use the Lite Touch Installation (LTI) for the deployment of Windows 7. Accept the name of the “Share Name” and click on “Next”. In the next page we can add a short description for the distribution share. In large environment this is normally not recommended since not all users in charge of the deployment should be local administrators of the operating systems. This option will be set in the task sequence of each operating system deployment. Enter the path where the Deployment Share will be stored.Then, we can select the Share name through which the Deployment Share can be accessible.
