After you decide on an appropriate deployment method, you need to further evaluate your provisioning environment and components to determine the details of how you will integrate or otherwise utilize Microsoft Provisioning System (MPS) functionality. Your provisioning environment might be different from what MPS namespaces provide and implement. When assessing how to integrate and utilize MPS functionality, keep in mind that you are not limited to any fixed configurations, such as those of the providers and namespaces included with MPS. You can customize and extend MPS to accommodate the unique needs of your provisioning environment. In addition, you can customize the installation of specific MPS components to meet your needs.

Determine Provisioning Environment Requirements

To determine the requirements of your provisioning environment, you should assess your current needs and develop a plan for how to meet these requirements within the context of the MPS deployment configuration that you chose.
