I have WDS setup and running on 2008 enterprise 32bit to deploy XP images.
The system is working well with my unattend.xml/sysprep.inf and I can deploy captured images with a couple of key presses.
Now I need to prestage multiple computers and associate them with their xml file.
I use wdsutil to acheive this on my test machine;
To prestage using MAC address
WDSUtil /Add-Device /Device:computername /ID:00-20-ED-88-15-7B
To associate my unattend xml
WDSUtil /Set-Device /Device:computername /WDSClientUnattend:WDSClientUnattend\unattendhere.x ml
That works beautifully for my one test machine, but typing that for every machine in the school is going to be a bit of a bind.
We have a list of all the MAC addresses so I just need a more automated way to prestage computers & associcate the XML.
Is this the best way to do this? Should I be doing this another way? I have gone so far with WDS and spent a long time getting to grips with it, it will not beat me
Any help greatly appreciated
Thanks for all the views. I think I had better reply to my own post.
Where I have rooms of 10 or more machines I ended up creating a batch file, repeating the same commands for each machine to prestage in A/D using comp name & MAC address and to associate the comp name to an unattend xml.
