Name

Title

Microsoft Corporation


Agenda l.jpg

Agenda

  • Understanding and Using the Configuration Database

  • Understanding Linked Deployment Shares

  • Understanding Selection Profiles

  • MDT 2010 Customization

  • Lab


What is the configuration database l.jpg

Extension of Deployment Workbench

Extended infrastructure not required

Manually initiated

Zero Touch Installation (ZTI) as a method

Automatically configure deployment targets

Draw from deployment resources as available

Enhance LTI functionality

What is the Configuration Database?


How does the configuration database work l.jpg

Abstraction through database methods

Logical extension of the CustomSettings.ini file

Centralized storage of configuration settings in a relational database

Automates and extends the Microsoft Deployment Wizard

All information is gathered up front

“Pull” process

Automation

Bootstrap.ini

CustomSettings.ini

How Does the Configuration Database Work?


Methods b ased deployment l.jpg

The goal:

Dynamically determine the deployment characteristics for each target computer

The process:

Gather information from the computer and its location

Use that information to decide what needs to be done, either statically or using database queries

Results control actions performed by the task sequence engine

Methods-Based Deployment


Configuration database supported target information l.jpg

Properties Settings

Applications

Packages

Administrator-level accounts

Roles

Configuration Database - Supported Target Information


Configuration database supported methods l.jpg

Database Methods

Roles

Computers

Locations

Make and Model

Configuration Database - Supported Methods


Configuration database methods roles l.jpg

Fully configurable to take definition from user tasks

Assignable to other database methods

Associate the following:

Properties Settings

Applications

Packages

Administrator-level Accounts

Configuration Database Methods - Roles


Configuration database methods grouping computers l.jpg

Locations of target groups of computers

Uses default gateway on which the request comes in to identify groups of computers

Make and Model targets groups of computers

Based on the WMI values for Manufacturer and Model

Associate Properties Settings, Applications, Packages, Administrator-level Accounts, and Roles

Configuration Database Methods – Grouping Computers


Grouping computers for deployment l.jpg

Grouping Computers for Deployment


Targeting individual computers l.jpg

Computers target specific computers

Uses Asset Tag, UUID, Serial Number, or MAC Address

Associate Properties Settings, Applications, Packages, Administrator-level Accounts, and Roles

Targeting Individual Computers


Configuring customsettings ini for database queries l.jpg

After populating the configuration database, update CustomSettings.ini to perform the appropriate database queries

Run the Configure DB Wizard for each deployment point

The optional sections are used to assign configuration settings to individual or groups of computers

Configuring CustomSettings.ini for Database Queries


Customsettings ini l.jpg

Priority reserved property

The Priority reserved property determines the sequence and section of where to find configuration values

Each section is searched in the order specified

When a property value is found, the remaining sections are not used for that property

Values are the configuration settings assigned to the properties

Preceded by an equal sign (“=”).

The scripts scan the CustomSettings.ini file to locate the values

CustomSettings.ini


Understanding linked deployment shares l.jpg

Understanding Linked Deployment Shares

  • Allow you to replicate content between Deployment Shares

  • Can replicate all content or a subset of content defined by a Selection Profile

  • Useful in a distributed environment or moving from a Lab to Production

  • Replication can be scheduled using Task Scheduler and a Powershell script


Understanding selection profiles l.jpg

Understanding Selection Profiles

  • Selection Profiles can be used to:

    • Control what Packages and Drivers are included in Boot Images

    • Control drivers injected in the Operating System

    • Control what is included in media

    • Control what is replicated to other Deployment Shares

    • To filter what task sequences and applications are displayed in the Deployment Wizard


Mdt 2010 opportunities for customization l.jpg

  • Wizards

  • Modify the wizards we provide

  • Add additional panes

  • http://www.codeplex.com/MDTWizardEditor

MDT 2010Opportunities for customization

  • Scripts

  • Create your own scripts that leverage the framework

  • Modify the scripts we provide

  • Rules

  • Edit CustomSettings.ini and Bootstrap.ini

  • Query databases, web services

  • Task sequences

  • Add additional steps

  • Modify existing steps, conditions


Lab mdt advanced scenarios l.jpg

Lab – MDT Advanced Scenarios

  • In this lab, you will:

    • Create the Configuration Database

    • Create Role methods in the database

    • Configure Location, Make and Model and Computer methods in the database

    • Associate a deployment point with the Configuration Database

    • Review how the properties assigned in the database methods are applied in a Refresh Scenario

    • Create a linked deployment point and migrate deployment assets

    • Customize the Deployment Wizard with a new pane

    • Create a custom script to add a user to the local administrators group on the target computer

    • Create an application to add a user to the local administrators group on the target computer


Virtual environment overview l.jpg

Virtual Environment Overview

  • Virtual Machines:

    • ADV_SEA-DC-01

    • ADV_SEA-XP-01

  • Estimated Time: 60 minutes
