How to automatically run RDeploy.exe from a WinPE Automation configuration
Last Updated August 01, 2009
If an unmanaged client boots into PXE WinPE but doesn't have a Deployment Server job assigned or a record in the eXpress database, it will simply be rebooted into Production. User would like to automatically run RDeploy.exe to start the imaging process.
Create a special WinPE automation image that is named in a way to specify that this PXE configuration will automatically run the RDeploy.exe imaging application (for example: "WinPE RDeploy Auto Run"). Add the line
F:\RDeploy\Windows\rdeploy.exe within the Startup.bat file. Complete the PXE wizard so that the image will be generated and saved to the PXE server.
Restart the Client and choose this new WinPE PXE boot configuration. The client machine should execute RDeploy.exe automatically.
