You can view the MDT deployment process using the Get-MDTMonitorData cmdlet. This cmdlet is included in the MDT PowerShell microsoft.bdd.pssnapin snap-in, which is included with MDT. To use this cmdlet, monitoring must be enabled as described in Enable MDT Deployment Monitoring.

To view MDT deployment progress using the Get-MDTMonitorData cmdlet

1.   Open a Windows PowerShell console.

2.   Add the MDT PowerShell snap-in by running the Add-PSSnapIn cmdlet as shown in the following example:

Add-PSSnapIn Microsoft.BDD.PSSnapIn

3.   Create a PowerShell drive that uses the MDT PowerShell provider by running the New-PSDrive cmdlet as shown in the following example:

New-PSDrive -Name DS001 -PSProvider mdtprovider -Root d:\DeploymentShare$

4.   View the MDT monitoring process by running the following command:
