Running the Create MDT Task Sequence Wizard to create the task sequence for the target generates a new software-distribution package and a new image. When the package and image are created, select the distribution points from which the package and image will be copied and available to target computers.

Note   In this sample, there is only one distribution point (WDG-MDT-01). However, most production networks will have multiple distribution points. When performing this step in a production environment, select the appropriate distribution points for the network.

Select the distribution points for the software-distribution package (for the new target computer custom settings package called MDT 2012 Target Computer Custom Settings) and the operating system image package (for the new captured .wim file of the reference computer called Windows 7 Reference Image).

To select the distribution points for the software-distribution package

1.   Click Start, point to All Programs, and then point to Microsoft System Center 2012. Point to Configuration Manager, and then click Configuration Manager Console.

2.   In the Configuration Manager console, in the navigation pane, click Software Library.

3.   In the Software Library workspace, go to Overview/Operating Systems/Task Sequences.

4.   In the preview pane, select UDI - Windows 7 Target Deployment.

5.   On the Ribbon, on the Home tab, in the Deployment group, click Distribute Content.

The Distribute Content Wizard starts.

6.   Complete the Distribute Content Wizard using the information in Table 32. Accept default values unless otherwise specified.
