The media properties on the General tab are configured when you run the New Media Wizard. However, you can update the linked deployment share properties on the General tab of the media Properties dialog box (where media is the name of the media in the Deployment Workbench).

To modify existing media properties on the General tab

1.   Click Start, and then point to All Programs. Point to Microsoft Deployment Toolkit, and then click Deployment Workbench.

2.   In the Deployment Workbench console tree, go to Deployment Workbench/Deployment Shares/deployment_share/Advanced Configuration/Media (where deployment_share is the name of the deployment share in which you will configure the media).

3.   In the details pane, click media (where media is the name of the media you want to configure).

4.   In the Actions pane, click Properties.

The media Properties dialog box opens (where media is the name of the media you want to configure).

5.   On the General tab, configure the settings listed in Table 70 based on the requirements of your organization, and then click OK.
