Friday October 23rd, 3:00pm – 5:00pm MST

Senior Premier Field Engineer Justin Chalfant will review Microsoft best practices for creating reference images for use with MDT or Configuration Manager. We will review why MDT 2013 Update 1 is typically recommended by Microsoft for creating reference images with many points from this whitepaper: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn818437.aspx.

Topics covered will include:

  • Setting up MDT 2013 Update 1 deployment share
    • Review deployment share folder structure
  • Changing the CustomSettings.ini (Rules) to be tailored for build and capturing instead of deploying images
  • Adding the install.wim for Windows 10 ISO into MDT 2013 Update 1
  • Creating a build and capture task sequence for Windows 10
    • Adding a pause step to make default user customizations
    • Enabling Windows update steps
    • Installing applications
  • Whether to use Microsoft Updates or WSUS to install updates on your capture VM
  • Setting up WSUS to decline superseded updates to reduce the amount of update content downloaded
  • Setting up WSUS to automatically download any new updates for future months
  • Creating boot media for running your MDT build and capture
  • Running build and capture task sequence on client Hyper-V virtual machine
  • Q&A
