Workstation Task Sequence - System Center Configuration manager 1602

Recommended Posts



I want to install several computers that is in a Workgroup task sequence.

The computers will not be managed by Config Mgr. after OS is deployed.

I want to deploy the OS from PXE boot.


My questions:

1. Can this be done?


If this can be done

1. Do I need a "thick OS image" (with all applications installed) or is it possible to add Applications in a Task Sequence?

2. Do I remove the SCCM PC agent in the Task Sequence or do I manually remove it after the OS is deployed?

3. Is it recommended using a MDT Task sequence to do this?

4. Do I need to make myself a Task Sequence media and deploy from USB stick?


Reason why I ask is becouse I have made a Workgroup TS (not MDT TS) and when I try to deploy the Image, non of my Applications gets installed.. Windows gets deployed and SCCM PC agent looks to be uninstalled.


I have tried the "fixes" 'Allow Clients to connect anonumously' and 'Add restart in the Task sequence' before Application installs. But still no luck getting my applications installed.

All applications works when i use a "domain" TS or when i deploy them from Software center.


Any advice would be welcome.

Yes, that's possible and yes, you can install applications during the task sequence. Also, to uninstall the client you can use the SMSTSPostAction task sequence variable. That allows you to trigger the action after the task sequence and by that allow the task sequence to finish successfully.
