Adobe CS4 and MDT
Currently getting MDT up and running for deploying OS and applications packages. Wondered if anyone had any experience or success deploying Adobe CS4 using MDT?
We have used the Adobe Uber Installer to create the package, which works in perfect silence locally. Pushing it out using MDT we get "an unspecified error". We'll plug away at it, but I was hoping someone might have some hard-earned wisdom on the subject!
In honesty what we did was used the silent installer on our base image then captured this with MDT and pushed it out with WDS. We just have full images with all the software on thats relevant (think the biggest is 33gb) and have been deploying those.
Not exactly answering your question but thought i'd let you know how we had done it.
Yeak, looks like thats what we'll do for now. It'd be nice to have all the components broken down so we can pick and choose bits when we do bare metal installs - save on storage space too. Its kinda supposed to be the point of MDT, but as with all things microsoft getting from the idea to actual real life implementation is all a bit fidly and time consuming. If we solve it I'll try to remember to post an update here.
We had CS4 working perfectly with MDT before we switched to SpecOps for software deployment. If I remember correctly we used the supplied wizard to create a silent install package and it did the rest for us.
