Pushing SYSPREP for Deployment Solution 7.0 for Clients before running the Capture Disk Image task
Last Updated March 25, 2009
Question How do I obtain SYSPREP and push Microsoft's SYSPREP to each managed computer before executing a Capture Disk Image job or task?
In Deployment Solution 7.0 for Clients, the Capture Disk Image job or task strips unique pieces from the computer using Microsoft’s sysprep tool and then creates an image of the computer’s hard drive. This makes the image suitable for deploying to multiple computers.
·For Windows Vista Sysprep is installed with the Microsoft Vista operating system by default.
·For Windows XP You must copy the support\tools\deploy.cab file from your Windows XP installation disk or service pack to the C:\sysprep\ folder on the source computer prior to capturing an image. This folder must be created manually.
