Step 6. Create and update the BDD Deployment point (OSD/ZTI)


Step 6


This guide assumes that you have first created an OSD capture CD and then Captured a Vista image (wim). Next you should have imported that captured Vista image into BDD, and then updated BDD with your Windows PE and XP OS files. You should then have created a new build in BDD for the captured WIM image.


In Deployment Workbench, expand Deploy and then select Deployment Points. Right click Deployment Points and choose New. When the wizard appears select SMS 2003 OSD as the deployment type and click next.




Give your deployment point a description




and then make sure to give it a share name (in the screenshot below I name the share ZTI2$ as I already have OSD setup and running on ZTI$)




next decide how you want USMT to control users data backup, and then click create.




Finally it will prompt you for the location of the SMS OSD scripts, which by default at in X:\SMS\OSD where X is the drive you installed SMS on.




Once done, we'll get a message that the deployment point is now created but that we must configure the Windows PE options.




To configure the Windows PE options we can now right click on our new build in Deployment Workbench, and choose Properties.


Select the builds tab. If you have more than the OSD build we just created (for example if you already have a light touch build added) then you may see a RED Exclamation mark flashing, it does this because by default Deployment Workbench will auto-select ALL build ID's available, even though it can only use OSD builds.




So DESELECT the non-OSD builds and the red exclamation mark should disappear.



Next click on the Windows PE 2004/2005 tab and once again you'll see red flashing exclamation marks.




use the drop down menus and select the Windows PE 2004/2005 as the first option and Windows XP SP2 as the second as I show here. Also, make sure that Generate a generic flat bootable ISO image is selected. Click OK to finish.




Now that it's all configured, you must update the Deployment point by right clicking on our deployment listed and choose Update.




Once complete, you should now see something like this in your Deployment Workbench.
