SCCM 2012 Force client to re-image

Recommended Posts



I have a requirement to be able to force our clients to re-image every sunday night/monday morning. So basically I need to schedule the OSD task sequence to deploy the OS image again. I can do this, but I am not sure how to go about forcing the clients to reboot into PXE so the installer kicks off. At this point the clients could have been shut down, logged off, or still logged in. Is there a way I can set up my task sequence and deployment(s) to acheive this? Keep in mind I am still new at this whole SCCM thing. I am managing Windows 7 clients.


Are there any other ways arouund this, such as forcing the re-image to occur at log off, and enforcing the clients to log off at a particular time, although that won't cover the clients that have been shut down?


Any suggestions are welcome,

Make an advertisment Mandatory with WAKE ON LAN enabled and that should not be a problem :) and you dont have to PXE boot they can still run from the OS they are logged into.




Mandatory advertisment

Enable and test WAKE ON LAN

Advertise ALL Computers you want to reinstall
