Step 9. Create an OS deploy program


Step 9


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. You should then have created and updated the BDD Deployment point (OSD/ZTI) and then updated Windows PE to support WMI. In addition, you must have imported the captured Vista WIM file into SMS.



Create a new Program.


Open the SMS administrator console, select Image Packages, expand it, and highlight Windows Vista Enterprise. In the results pane, right-click Programs, point to New and select Operating System Program.




On the Welcome to the New OS Program Wizard page, click Next. On the New Operating System Program options page, type VistaRefresh in the Name box and click Next.






On the Licensing settings page, select Product key not required and click Next.




For membership settings, select Domain and type the name of your domain in the text box, click Set and type in the required credentials.




Remove the tick from 'Create random password for the local administrator on the target computer' (BDD will take care of that for us), click next and finally Finish.





You may be informed that you need to update your SMS distribution points.








When you create a new OS Deployment package or program, or modify an OS Deployment program’s properties, SMS creates an associated log file with each action and stores the log file in the SMS\Logs folder along with the other SMS log files. These three OS Deployment log files are:






congratulations, you have now completed 50% of the Zero Touch setup steps, only 9 more to go :-)
