Step 16. Update each OSD phase with BDD ZTI files and scripts


Step 16


This guide assumes that you have first completed the following 15 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. Update the SMS distribution points and then Copy driver resources for SMS packaging. Next you need to create a package in SMS from the drivers resources, and add the driver resources to a SMS distribution point and then Update the SMS distribution point. Edit the customsettings.ini and bootstrap.ini files.


Define BDD ZTI actions.


Open the SMS administrator console, select Image Packages, expand it, and highlight Windows Vista Enterprise. In the results pane, double click on Programs you should now see VistaRefresh listed. Right-click on VistaRefresh and choose properties then click on advanced.




Ensure that Validation is selected in the Phase dropdown and click Add. Ensure that (Custom) is selected and click OK.


Type the following custom action values:


Name: ZTI-Validation

Command line: ZeroTouchInstallation.vbs /debug:true


Click Add and in the Files of type dropdown, select All files (*.*).




In the File name box, type \\Servername\ZTI$ and click Open, click in the list box and navigate to the build you've created in BDD 2007 (in our example it was build 2), once done press Ctrl+A to select all files. Click Open.




In the screenshots here, the circled '2' is the build ID number in our ZTI share, the build ID number is found in our BDD 2007 workbench under the builds listed.


Click Add again, in the File name box, type \\Servername\SMS_site\OSD and click Open (replace servername with your servername and replace SMS_site with the share name of your default SMS folder). Press Ctrl_a and add all files in that folder.






For the remaining Zero Touch phases, we do NOT have to mark and copy the files above, all we have to do is add the VBS script


State Capture



State Restore


so for example for PostInstall


click Add, choose (Custom), enter ZTI-PostInstall as the name and paste the script in the command line

ZeroTouchInstallation.vbs /debug:true




repeat this action (changing the name obviously) for the remaining states:-


State Capture








and State Restore




To finish this step, click Apply and then Ok, a notice will tell us that we have to update the SMS distribution points.




Updating the SMS distribution Points.




Right click our Windows Vista Enterprise package, and choose All Tasks, select Update Distribution Points and then click yes to the notice.
