The Configure DB Wizard in the Deployment Workbench provides the method that requires the least effort, requires minimal knowledge about how the CustomSettings.ini file is modified, and minimizes the risk of configuration errors. However, if you need to create custom queries for information, you can modify CustomSettings.ini to return the proper query results.

Note   Although it is possible to manually customize the CustomSettings.ini file to retreve configuration settings from the MDT DB without running the Configure DB Wizard, it is recommend that you run the Configure DB Wizard, and then modify the CustomSettings.ini file to meet your needs.

Directly modify the CustomSettings.ini file to configure the retreival of configuration settings from the MDT DB by performing the following steps:

·     Review the CustomSettings.ini file after running the Configure DB Wizard as a starting point for customization as described in Review the CustomSettings.ini File After Running the Configure DB Wizard.

·     Configure the properties in the CustomSettings.ini file that are used to create a SQL query as described in Configure Properties That Are Used to Create an SQL Query.

·     Configure the properties in the CustomSettings.ini file that are used for deployment to a specific computer as described in Configure Properties That Are Used for Deployment to a Specific Computer.

·     Configure the properties in the CustomSettings.ini file that are used for deployment by location as described in Configure Properties That Are Used for Deployment by Location.

·     Configure the properties in the CustomSettings.ini file that are used for deployment by computer make and model as described in Configure Properties That Are Used for Deployment by Computer Make and Model.

·     Configure the properties in the CustomSettings.ini file that are used for deployment by role as described in Configure Properties That Are Used for Deployment by Role.
