Windows 8 Deployment Using MDT 2012: OS Install

In part one of this series on Windows 8 deployment using Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2012, I went over the configuration and setup of MDT 2012. In this second and final installment, I’ll start with booting the machine with the bootable USB stick I created in the previous article. I'll also give you additional background and feedback of the client deployment process itself. The demo machine I used for creating this procedure is running Windows XP Pro SP3.

Automating WIM2VHD

As I mentioned yesterday – I have been working on a completely automated virtual machine build process that does not use templates (but build everything from scratch).  One of the key tools that I have been using for this process is WIM2VHD – which allows me to generate new VHD files directly from Windows installation media.However – I wanted to go a step further and have the virtual machines generated using this process boot in a completely unattended fashion.  My ultimate goal here was to go from nothing to having a...

Using Get-Hotfix to get a list of installed hotfixes

Exchange Server 2010 Service Pack 1 requires a number of hotfixes to be installed. These are listed in Exchange 2010 Prerequisites in Exchange 2010 documentation and in the Exchange 2010 SP1 FAQ and Known Issues post on the Exchange team blog. While preparing a server for SP1, I erroneously kept trying to install the hotfixes on the Hyper-V host sytem, which has Windows 2008 R2 (instead of the VM running Windows Server 2008 SP2). Obviously, none of the hotfixes I downloaded for Windows 2008 SP2 would apply, and the hotfix installer... [Lire la suite]

Exchange 2010 SP1 Setup Error – MSExchange Transport Failed To Reach Status “Running” On This Server

Most exchange admins should be familiar with this error message by now. I ran a clean install of Exchange 2010 SP1 RTM, only to find this error message. MSExchange Transport failed to reach status “running” on this server. The cause is the same, as in previous versions. Check my previous article for more info. This happens when IPv6 is unchecked in the TCP/IP properties of the NIC, but not disabled fully in registry. This issue was fixed in the previous version rollups, but is now back with 2010 SP1 RTM. I checked IPv6... [Lire la suite]
