What is Deployment?

Not just imaging a machine!

  • Includes delivery of
    • Windows operating system
    • Applications
    • Configuration
    • Security
  • Automated
    • Requires minimal “attended” time at a machine
    • Repeatable process so all machines are really the same
windows deployment challenges d i y
Windows Deployment ChallengesD.I.Y?
  • Complexity
    • Can take months to develop in-house
    • Hard to support using scripting and FreeWare tools
    • Seen as a ‘dark art’
    • Hands-on time after imaging to customise
    • Management of devices once deployed
engl imaging toolkit 5
ENGL Imaging Toolkit 5
  • What do you need it?
    • Turn key solution for Windows deployment
    • Integrates with ZENworks imaging and application installation
    • Modular = easier to configure, update, and distribute
    • Create an automated XP or Vista build within a few hours
engl imaging toolkit 5 system requirements
ENGL Imaging Toolkit 5System Requirements
  • ZENworks versions
    • ZENworks 10 Configuration Management

Zupdate

Imaging Toolkit includes a Windows update export tool.

  • Zupdate will:
    • Run standalone, i.e. from USB pen-drive
    • Scan the local machine for required Microsoft Hotfixes
      • Using either Microsoft Update site or WSUS server
    • Download selected hotfixes
    • Create installation script (option to be silent or verbose)
    • Create hotfixesadd-on image

  • Imaging Toolkit includes a driver extraction tool.
    • Zdrivers will:
      • Run standalone, i.e. from USB pen-drive
      • Scan the local machine for installed drivers
      • Export selected drivers
      • Create drivers-<manufacturer>-<model>.zmg file
      • Update image lookup file (images.ini)

imaging process
Imaging Process
  • Images are restored based on
      • Device model and type e.g. desktop, laptop, tablet, server
      • Physical location
      • Boot media i.e PXE/CDROM/USB Flash drive
      • User supplied information e.g. department, device owner
  • Information gathered is stored in ZISD for the lifetime of the device
      • Special ENGL ZISD attribute
      • Enables automated re-imaging
  • Environment is secured and front-ended by Zim
      • User can login, select a menu option and walk away
