On the Properties tab, you configure the properties for task sequence groups or individual task sequence steps. The configuration settings for:

·     Task sequence groups are the same for all groups

·     Task sequence steps are different for each task sequence step type

Table 56 lists the properties common to task sequence groups and steps. In addition to these properties, most task sequence steps have properties that are specific to the task sequence type.

Table 56. Properties Common to Task Sequence Groups and Steps




Contains the task sequence type, which is always set to Group for task sequence groups or to the types listed in Table 55


Contains the name of the task sequence group or step displayed in the task sequence hierarchy


Provides descriptive information about the task sequence group or step


For more information about:

·     Configuring specific task sequence step types, see the corresponding section in Configuring Task Sequences in the Deployment Workbench

·     The properties for each task sequence type, see the section for corresponding task sequence steps in the MDT document Toolkit Reference

To modify existing task sequence group and individual step properties

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/Task Sequences (where deployment_share is the name of the deployment share in which you will configure the task sequence).

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

4.   In the Actions pane, click Properties.

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

5.   On the Task Sequence tab, in the task sequence hierarchy, click the Properties tab.
