Step 10. Update the distribution point for the OS deploy program

Recommended Posts

Step 10

 

This guide assumes that you have first completed the following 9 steps in the order listed below.

 

Create 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 and then created an OS Deploy Program.

 

 

Distribute software using SMS distribution points.

 

In the SMS tree pane, right-click Windows Vista Enterprise (it's under Image Packages), point to All Tasks and select Distribute Software.

Click next and select the package we created earlier (Windows Vista Enterprise).

Select the SMS distribution points you want to copy the package to and click next.

You will be asked if you want to advertise a program, click yes.

We will select the program we created earlier (VistaRefresh) and click next.

and then we have to select which collections to advertise to (for example, all Windows XP computers)

so click on browse, and browse to the collections that you want to select. (In an enterprise environment you would not do this, you would split your computers down into smaller collections for Vista deployment).

Next, you can specify the advertisement name, and add some comments ;-)

if you wish you can select subsets of the collections you've already chosen in the next screen

and then choose your advertisement scedule and expiration date (if any).

Finally you get to assign the program (or not), choose yes if you want to test it.

Update the SMS distribution points.

 

If you only want to update the SMS distribution points, then in the SMS tree pane, right-click Windows Vista Enterprise (it's under Image Packages), point to All Tasks and select Update Distribution Points.

You'll be informed that this may take some time.
