SCCM / MDT - Simplify deployment
Posted on 2011-03-07
We are using a number of task sequences to deploy our corporate desktop build. Currently we are creating computer associations using the MAC address of the computer being built and then place it in a collection where the task sequence are is being advertised.
Next we boot from the CD and select the particular task sequence that we want to run. Once deployed we then need to remember to ensure that the computer is removed from the collection to prevent the task sequence being displayed to the computer thereafter.
This is obviously quite a lengthy process and relies upon giving everyone access to the SCCM console. We have also found that if the computer is being reinstalled then we need to delete the machine from SCCM before the task sequence can be seen (therefore losing historical data). Is there an easier way?
