Registering Namespaces in MPF

After creating a custom namespace for use by Microsoft® Provisioning Framework (MPF), you must register it in the configuration database so that provisioning engines will recognize it. There are two ways to register a namespace:

To register a namespace from Provisioning Manager

  1. Click Start, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Provisioning Server, and then click Provisioning Manager.
  2. Right-click Namespaces, then click Import Namespace.
  3. Enter the path and filename of the ProjectName.xml file, then click OK. The new namespace is now registered.

To register a namespace from the command line

  1. Open a command prompt window.
  2. In the directory where you installed MPF (for example, Program Files\Microsoft Provisioning\Tools), run ProvNamespace.exe. The command format is as follows. 
    ProvNamespace NamespaceFile

Note  MPF immediately propagates updates to the rest of the installation.
