Event ID: 1032373859
Language(s): English.
Product(s): Windows Server 2008.
Audience(s): IT Implem_IT Generalist.
In this session, we examine Windows Deployment Services (WDS) and the Microsoft Deployment solution accelerator. First, we discuss the WDS role, and compares WDS to its predecessor, Remote Installation Services (RIS). We also talk about the new Windows Imaging Format (WIM) and how it works with WDS and the Windows Automated Installation Kit (WAIK), and show how you can use WAIK to edit WIM image files and create answer files to automate operating system configuration. We then look at the Microsoft Deployment solution accelerator and how it can be used to deploy server operating systems and configurations.
