Question What is the Altiris Image Distribution Framework (also known as Deployment Solution Framework), and how can it be used with Deployment Solution?
Answer The attached PDF and files contain both an explanation of the Deployment Solution framework operations and all the files needed to setup a Deployment Solution Framework environment.
Note that we have added a .txt extension to the batch, executable and .lst files, so rename these files before using them. Also note that these files are available with the standard Deployment Solution 6.8 installation under the \\<DS_ServerName>\eXpress\TechSup\DOS\getsrv.
These files are specific to the DOS pre-boot environment and do not work with WinPE and Linux pre-boot environments.
Note! To setup the Deployment Solution Framework in a Linux environment see article 32095. To setup the DS Framework in a WinPE environment, see article 32098.
