Step 10. Update the distribution point

Recommended Posts

Step 10

 

This guide assumes that you have first completed the following 9 steps in the order listed below.

 

Create an OSD capture CD and then captured a Vista image (wim). Next you should have imported that captured Vista image into BDD, and then updated BDD with your Windows PE and XP OS files. You should then have created a new build in BDD for the captured WIM image. You should then have

created and updated the BDD Deployment point (OSD/ZTI) and then updated Windows PE to support WMI. In addition, you must have imported the captured Vista WIM file into SMS and then created an OS Deploy Program.

 

 

Distribute software using SMS distribution points.

 

In the SMS tree pane, right-click Windows Vista Enterprise (it's under Image Packages), point to All Tasks and select Distribute Software.

so click on browse, and browse to the collections that you want to select. (In an enterprise environment you would not do this, you would split your computers down into smaller collections for Vista deployment).
