Preparing for ZTI Deployment to Target Computers Using Configuration Manager 2012
After the images of the reference computers are captured, deploy them to the target computers. In preparation for deploying the captured images to the target computers, create one or more task sequences for deploying the captured images, ensure that the necessary deployment resources exist, and customize the MDT deployment process.
To prepare for ZTI deployment to target computers
1. Prepare network shares for storing migration data and MDT deployment logs as described in Preparing the MDT Migration Resources.
2. Optionally, prepare Windows Deployment Services to start the appropriate Windows PE images that will in turn start the ZTI deployment process to the target computers as described in Preparing Windows Deployment Services for ZTI Deployments Using Configuration Manager 2012.
3. Create additional distribution points to help in larger deployments as described in Managing Distribution Points in Configuration Manager 2012.
4. Prepare the ZTI task sequences, the MDT configuration files, and the MDT DB for each deployment scenario as described in the following:
Depending on the target computers in your organization, any combination of these deployments scenarios might be necessary. For more information about MDT deployment scenarios, see Identifying Deployment Scenarios.
