MDT 2010 deployment based on Chassis type.

I have an MDT 2010 task seqence that i want to use to deploy certain applications based on the chassis type, so for example, i want to install adobe reader on a laptop but not a desktop during my OS deployment. how can i do this? i am not very familiar with WMI queries but i can manage if i need to. also if i do a query i am not clear on how to tell my task sequence how to use that data... maybe someone knows a good how to link?

Hi,

You may utilize the MDT variable "ISLAPTOP" or "ISDESKTOP"  for this purpose. You may Implement this as follows:

1. Create/Import the application in Workbench
2. Within Task Sequence, Create a new Task using, "Add" --> "General" --> "Install Application"
3. Within the "Install Application Task" properties, Select the radio button, "Install a Single Application" and choose your application.
4. In the "Options" Tab, Click, "Add" --> "Task Sequence Variable"
5. In the Condition box, Enter Variable as "ISLAPTOP" or "ISDESKTOP" (Any one, according to your requirement), Conditon, select as "equals" and in Value enter as "True". Click OK.

The selected application will be installed only of the condition is "True"

Good Luck.

The best place to look at is the VARIABLE.DAT file (can be opened in notepad) located in MININT\SMSOSD\OSDLOGS folder.

Thanks
