RM CC4 Build & WDS
Just a quickie, is it safe to use a mixture of WDS on an RMCC4 network? I have a batch of machines which won't play ball with certain drivers with the RM build and was wondering if creating a new driver group in WDS and assigning the stubborn machines, it will help resolve the issue - or am I at risk of borking the postgres database on CC4?
Thanks in advance
Yep, I have multi RM boot Disks in WDS, as well as Lite Touch (MDT), Windows Server Setup and Windows Recovery Tools (useful for repairing laptops)
What you may want to do is build a blank windows 7 pc and then smart client it onto CC4. Drivers need to be in the RMMC Drivers, you can manually select drivers during the build process if you need to use specific drivers other than the default ones it finds.
Which PE version are you using?
The latest update is version 3.1, this uses actual windows 7 drivers so you probably don't need to create different images...........I could be wrong :D
@bossman Latest version of PXE as we are CC4.5 compliant with Win 8 images on board.
@nickbro - wanting to avoid smart clienting, as we are heading towards a complete school hardware refresh and I don't wish to have to do a manual VGA driver install on all the new clients if we have these same issues.
What would be ideal as if we were able to manipulate the main build images and slipstream in the drivers and have a build image for each OS and the one or two flavours of devices we may purchase (would account for around 6 or 8 different build images so not to confusing).
Just this minute remembered from our earlier communications my bad oops!
How is the new RMCC4.5 going?
I was led to believe it wasn't going to be released until early next year and they wanted field trialists or are you one of the early adopters?
@bossman : Sorry we are licenced for 4.5 but technically only at 4.4 at the moment - We haven't rolled out W8 at the moment, the pain is the lack of program sets and everything is presented on tiles whether if you like it or not lol.
