Preparing Windows Deployment Services for ZTI Deployments Using Configuration Manager 2012
For ZTI deployments using Configuration Manager 2012, configure a Configuration Manager PXE service point on the computer on which Windows Deployment Services is installed. Doing so allows Configuration Manager 2012 to directly service PXE boot requests received by Windows Deployment Services as a PXE service point, which in turn allows target computers to boot images that Configuration Manager 2012 manages using PXE. The PXE service point is a feature of the distribution point site system role, which means that you will configure the computer running Windows Deployment Services as a distribution point site system role.
For more information about preparing Windows Deployment Services for ZTI deployments using Configuration Manager 2012, see:
· “How to Deploy Operating Systems by Using PXE in Configuration Manager” in the Configuration Manager 2012 Documentation Library, included with Configuration Manager 2012
· “Configuring Distribution Points to Accept PXE Requests” in the Configuration Manager 2012 Documentation Library, included with Configuration Manager 2012
Note In addition to the methods described here, you can use traditional Windows Deployment Services methods for responding to PXE boot requests. For more information, see the Windows Deployment Services Help file included with Windows Deployment Services.
