Deploy Windows XP sp3 in a secondary site - SCCM 2007 sp2 r3

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Firstly, thanks for maintaning this great forum. I am a bit new to SCCM 2007 and i want to deploy WinXP SP3 in our company using SCCM 2007 (to save the time of IT admins by booting a new machine via PXE boot and install a baseline image with required applications)

 

I have read your tutorial but i need some more orientation (sorry in advance, if this a duplicate question) maybe because my scenario is different....

 

We have a primary site (Windows 2008 server sp2 + SCCM 2007 sp2 r3) in our Data center (remote location) and a seconday site in our corporate office (My office). DNS and DHCP server are installed on a separate DC. Attached is the screenshot of the roles installed on Pri and Sec site. (WDS is not installed on either of the locations)

Now i want to deply Win XP sp3 in my office.

 

Please give me hints on how to proceed, i mean, what component to be installed where? and which one first? I beleive rest of the guides/howtos are available on your forum.

 

Regards,

you need to install the PSP role on the secondary site if you want to image computers at that site using PXE boot. The PSP role requires WDS to be installed (but not configured)

Hi,

 

Thanks for the response, based on which i have done below and i am stuck in the last stage. For clarity sake i've treid to put max info on what i did and the issues i am facing (Highlighted in Red color)

 

Plz help.

 

1) Installed WDS on secondary site, using server manager --> add roles.

2) Added PXE role from configuration manager console to the sec site (Skipped Configure WDS PXE Filter - No plans for MDT 2010)

3) Added a new 32-bit image (not 64) and updated the Distribution points (Pri and Sec sites) successfully

4) Imported our XP sp3 CD as install package successfully and updated to the distribution point (Sec site) successfully

5) Extracted the contents of deploy.cab into a shared folder called sysprep on pri site (NOT ON SEC SITE), then created a sysprep package and updated to the distribution point (Sec site) successfully

6) Created package from definition (Config manager client) and updated the the distribution point (Sec site) successfully

7) Create the task sequence successfully - exactly as shown in your guide.

 

Just before adding option 66 and 67 i was verifiying the path of boot file in REMINST folder on my secondary site server, i found that all directories inside are empty. (Disappointing moment :o )

 

 

On the other hand i can see that all required packages are successfully copied under SMSPKGD$ on sec site. (Boot image, XP, sysprep and SCCM client package)

 

Initially i faced some issues starting my PXE component but it worked fine after rebooting sec site server. (Verified by looking into pxecontrol.log)

 

What could be the probable reason behind empty directories of REMINST folder? in adddition i have created "captures" shared folder(during the task sequence) on Primary site, where i am actually trying to caprtue a machine on sec site.. Can i edit the task sequence to point to a share on sec site?

 

Thanks,

 

Aijaz
