Organizing Microsoft Deployment Toolkit folders
Posted on 2012-08-27
I'm setting up MDT 2012 (with WDS & WAIK) as our computer building/imaging solution. We have several models of Dell Desktops & Laptops & some Panasonic Toughbooks. We deploy Windows XP x32 & x64 and Windows 7 x32 & x64. We have a collection of applications that Engineers get, another collection of applications that Finance people get, etc. And of course there are the drivers for each model of computer. Now I need to organize all these items so that the tech building a computer has all the needed menu selections/options as he builds the computer.
I'm trying to understand how best to layout the folders in the MDT Workbench Environment. For example:
Would it be best to create a Deployment Share for each O/S version, or would I also need unique Deployment Shares for the different collection of applications for each department or could that be handled with just some unique Task Sequences? That's the sort of organization information I'm looking for. Thanks!
