What is an Operating System Deployment?  

  • Allows you to create operating system images and deploy those images to computers.    

The Benefits  

What are the benefits of using SCCM for O/S deployment?  

  • Saves time and effort – One touch installation
  • Eliminate human error - No human interaction  
  • Backup Data – Fully automated  

OSD terminology you will need to understand for this lecture.  

  • WIM file - A WIM file allows a single disk image to be deployed to multiple computer platforms. You can manage drivers, updates, they can be made bootable and one WIM file can contain multiple disk images.  
  • Operating System Image – a WIM file  
  • A Boot Image in configuration manager is a winPE image that is used during an operating system deployment. Boot images are used to start a computer into WinPE, which is a minimal operating system with limited components.  
  • Distribution Point – A site system role that contains source files for clients to download. 
  • Command Support – When WinPE is booted press F8, and this will open a Command prompt, to enable access to local log files to assist in troubleshooting problems.  
  • Task Sequence - Performs multiple steps or tasks on a client computer without requiring user intervention. 
  • Software Updates – Fixes, drivers, features and security related releases that can be added to an image for deployment  
  • Package – A Configuration Manager object that contains the content files and instructions for distributing programs, software updates, boot images, O/S images and drivers to CM clients. 
  • PXE boot – Pre-boot execution environment, enables a client to boot software retrieved from the network. 
  • Windows Deployment Services – For OSD, WDS must be installed but not configured 
  • Unknown Computers – An unknown computer is a computer that is not managed by Configuration Manager 
  • Device Affinity – This setting associates users with the destination computer. 
  • Smsts.log file – The smsts.log is a task sequence log file, we can check this log file if we have problems with our task sequence. It is located on the client in C:\windows\temp\smstslog\smsts.log
