WDS 2008 and MDT...

Hi!

I am new to WDS and I would like to utilize it to deploy 50 W7 workstations.  I have a VM environment with a Server 2008 domain.  I also have a Storage Server 2012 NAS which I would like to be the storage deployment for WDS/MDT.  I've been through the installation of WDS and found it only runs locally on Domain Controller.  I have very limited space on domain controller.  How can I utilize the 2012 NAS, joined to the domain as a solution to deploy all these workstations?

TIA,

Steve

What David meant(not to steal his answer by the way) is you simply map a drive in the 2008 server to the NAS - then create the deployment share in MDT on that drive...so you are using the NAS for storage...hope that clears it up
