00:04
Yeah, it's on the tool that we use to figure our whim files to have features or to update driver files updates from Windows environment. Whatever we need to do is part of the piece of the puzzle. We also want to be able to deploy these images in our environment. So let's get a server that's ready to do that. Go through the process of doing these deployments.
00:24
So on our server manager here, what's good? Hard
00:26
dashboard. Click out her manage.
00:29
We'll click on add rules it features. Go ahead and click okay
00:32
to the Admiral's of features there,
00:34
and we click on next on the splash screen. Don't need Thio.
00:37
Read this passion anymore.
00:39
We're gonna stick with role based or future based
00:42
Quick on next
00:44
and we choose the local server. We could choose any service. It's on our list. Click on next
00:50
and we choose from the rolls. So if we're gonna scroll down here, you want to look to see if you have when his deployment service is and you do it right there.
00:58
It's not a feature, it is a role.
01:00
So there's your windows. Deployment service is we're gonna go ahead and select that and add our after features in
01:07
pick. Click on Next
01:11
brings up our features. Paige. We don't need that. Click on next
01:15
and we have wds
01:19
installed configuring when his operative system rule and computers basically these air things to dote deployments of requires a, D, C, P and D M s service's are available on your network.
01:27
Yes, they have to be available. The transports ever does not require any additional rules of service is both of these service is required and TMS partition for the foster
01:37
And before you began, you need to configure wds by running either
01:40
this configuration wizard or the WD Sutil
01:44
to do it and to install Windows operating systems from the WDS server.
01:48
Either the client computers
01:49
must be pixie unable or you must use the
01:53
server. 2008 are two version of Windows Primi installation environment soapy to do that,
01:57
and here we go. We click on next, just a piece of information and we have to decide what we're gonna do. Are we going to be a deployment server or transport server?
02:07
Well, in terms of our options, we could be both
02:12
questions. Do you want to be both
02:14
well,
02:14
in terms of our environment, we're going to go ahead and let it be bulls because it's our only server that we're gonna be doing for right now. So quick. Next do balls.
02:23
It would check the restart if we felt that we need to do a restart. Otherwise, you're just going to click on install
02:31
run through the installation process.
02:34
Once it's done,
02:36
we want to go through it. D
02:38
other piece of the puzzle. Remember, we were reading the screen with a little bit of advice was telling us that we need to either do W s u w d Sutil or run a wizard to get the rest of the configuration set up bearing in mind that
02:51
the wds
02:52
functions to a few things and we actually have to have DCP probably configured for pixie boots.
02:57
And we also need to have the wind files
03:00
that are used in our environment. So we actually have tohave the
03:04
boot dot Web and the install it out. Well, I'm available in our environment on our network on our server. This could be doing wds, so we should need to
03:13
figure those and get them into the right location.
03:15
So here we are. We're Shipley running our isolation, and it's taking a few minutes here, and it does. It takes a moment to go to this process, and that's go ahead and allow the process to finish. And we will pick up when it is done.
03:30
All right.
03:30
Installation is successful on a server, so we're gonna go ahead and click on clothes now
03:36
and
03:36
now There were close. We don't want to go to our consul to manage our environment and make sure that we have some settings enabled. So go up to our tools.
03:46
It chews are wds, sir, When his deployment service's are W. D s Maines, the council couldn't open it up.
03:53
And once he gets open, we'll get it positioned on our screen the way we want it,
03:58
so that we can talk about the next piece of the puzzle. So here we are. We have our wds council open, and what we have so far is
04:05
servers, which we have one
04:09
an actor director of pre stage devices, which is empty. So our servers is one in our windows. Deployment service is one.
04:15
Now there's things we could do here
04:17
if we actually
04:18
where to
04:20
right click on when his deployment. Servicing this we don't have any options. But if we get down to our servers and right click, we can add a server. If we need to do more servers, then we get down to our actual server
04:30
and right click on it. We can get figure a server or remove the server. What we need to do is figure, sir, because you actually don't have a functioning wds sever. Yet we've just installed the role so kindly, I figure the server that says before you begin, you need to make sure that you meet the following requires that it is a member of an A. D. D s domain
04:48
or a domain controller for an 80 s domain. If the server support standalone mode, it can be configured without having a dependency and 80. There are things that we can work around it. We need DCP on the network. There has to be D. N s working the network and the servants to have an anti F S partition somewhere to store images,
05:06
go ahead and click out. Next
05:10
it select one of the following options. We could integrate it
05:14
or we could you stand alone
05:15
in terms of your choices?
05:16
If you're on an 80 environment integrated, your ideal choice stayed alone. We could figure it that way. It works independently of active directory, but having it as part of our A D in a actual driving environment works better
05:30
next.
05:31
It says the remote installation folder will contain boot images, install images, pixie boudin files and the Windows Deployment Service demanded rituals. She's a partition that is large enough to hold all of the images that you will have.
05:43
Partition was being a T. F s permission and should not be the system partition. This is very important to pay attention to.
05:48
You want to make sure that when you're doing this, that the
05:53
machines that are connecting through the pixie boot environment
05:56
to the deployments ever the wds server are connected to a directory that beats the work carvers. Wds is big enough to hold a bunch of image files, and it's ante f s. And it's not on the C drive. So in this particular case, we're gonna want to move this often. See Dr we actually click Browse here.
06:14
We would actually move it on our PC Notice we actually have an option here where we have an e. Dr.
06:20
So the e dr were Actually, we're gonna put it so we'll just have to go and navigate to the drive. We can actually just change that Dr Letter
06:28
to the drive, So see, remote install.
06:31
Did they cook up Next?
06:33
If you don't quick on the C drive, you will get a warning about putting it on the system partition.
06:41
Now,
06:42
what's having pixie responsibly? Gonna do it? Well, fixed response. We're going to tell it currently
06:46
to respond to everyone. So respond to
06:48
all clients. Peters known an unknown.
06:51
That's not the best approach in a environment. We certainly
06:55
might want to consider what we're doing. If it's a totally secure environment where there are no external
07:00
potential issues of the machine coming in and getting fixit booted, that that's fine. Otherwise, we're gonna leave it to respond to all clan computers, known and unknown for our particular environment.
07:12
And those who says required Mr approval for unknown computers. If you check this box, that computer is not known to active directory. It'll actually
07:19
require administrator a pool approval before we actually install the OS,
07:25
so that's actually a good check box
07:27
to use. If you know you're gonna be an environment where
07:30
you might have a situation come up where you have a bunch of unknown computers, so we're gonna leave it unchecked right now. We click on next
07:38
to copy the files. It actually start the WDs service's
07:42
and it will finish the process. For us, it was his complete. We're gonna go ahead,
07:46
close that out,
07:46
and now it says it says add images to serve it. Now, we're not gonna add images to server. Now we're gonna show you how to manually add them later so that you see the process click out Finished.
07:56
We could have added it there,
07:58
and that's when we actually have enough for money. We have a
08:01
server that's
08:01
active
08:03
underneath it. We have installed images and boot images. They're two different things.
08:07
There's nothing under. We have pending devices. We don't have anything multicast transmissions and drivers.
08:11
So we have all packages and a driver group one. So there's all the pieces of a puzzle that we are going to be working with.
08:18
First of all, we actually need to have a boot image. So the boot image needs to be
08:24
one that we can work with and where we're gonna put that Buddha image. Well, the Buddha image is going to be ideally in the
08:31
folder that we just created. So if we go back to our environment here and open up our windows Explorer,
08:37
it go to R E. Dr.
08:39
We now have a remote install that we also have these lab files.
08:43
We know we have these boot and install William. Let's go ahead and get those moved so eager to
08:50
cut them and move them over to our
08:54
boat install.
08:56
And
08:56
you mean
08:58
I'm just gonna put him in the route?
09:00
I don't want him in the proper folders yet because I want to move them in here in a moment.
09:05
I want you to see what's going on.
09:07
So Buddha Images This is what the is initially used by fixing boot to start the process.
09:13
You know,
09:13
Bret, no hit any key to load from CD type ideas. That's basically what you're gonna do.
09:18
First, we need to bring in a boot image. So boot images. We right click and to add a boot image and we go find that Buddha image. So it's quick on the brows.
09:28
We know where we put it. We actually put it on our E drive and the remote install folder and called boot. Women was gonna bring that in that cook on next,
09:37
and it says,
09:39
Enter a name. A description for the following image. Those name is Microsoft Windows set up X rayed X 64 names. Just description. Is
09:48
Microsoft Windows set up x 64? We would want to know what version this is. So it's actually two piece of the puzzle we could take into
09:56
process of what we're doing. We would like you want to call it
10:01
something.
10:01
So in our bar,
10:03
the image name is Microsoft Windows set up at 64. We don't know which version of Windows we'd want actually put that in there. So if it's x 64 set up for
10:13
Peter, was a 12
10:15
are too,
10:18
so
10:18
2012 are too.
10:24
Then that's what we're going to put in there.
10:26
Whatever it's gonna be, we need to know what our images are,
10:30
and we go ahead and click on next. So that's actually the image name
10:33
we could do an image description so we could do this in the other order. So you could say, All right, if you want to do that, say
10:39
instead the image description
10:41
rather than just leave. The name is X 64
10:46
and I'll say
10:46
2012
10:48
are two. And then I could get down in the
10:50
in. His description that I could put in
10:54
Server
10:54
2000
10:56
12 are too
10:58
standard or something like that Depends what it is. It doesn't really matter what it is
11:03
in terms of our lab, but we would put it in.
11:05
We got next
11:07
and it says yes, selected the following images, but images for remote. We're gonna put it in our
11:13
remote installed whim and we're gonna cook out next,
11:18
check the integrity of the source boot. It'll add that image to our environment
11:22
so it's ready to go. And then when it's done, we're going to go to the same process
11:26
for the installer, which knows the boot image is basically the core startup process natural actually going to have to have an install image which is actually all of the O s configuration, so click up finish
11:37
would do the same thing for install images of right click.
11:39
It added install image.
11:41
That's gonna be the same
11:43
place this has created image group name, Image Group One are such an existing What would I am? One. So we have to create one. We call image Group one. We could call it anything we want to
11:52
at a particular environment. You'd want to think about the name for the image group. In this particular case we're going to. Instead of calling it the image Group
12:01
one,
12:03
we're going to give it a name
12:05
that is functional for us. So we're gonna call it
12:09
server
12:09
2012
12:11
are, too.
12:13
That's gonna be our image group date.
12:16
You go ahead and click out next
12:20
and if allocation for the install. So click on browse,
12:24
find that same
12:24
directory and get the install whim. It click on next.
12:28
It tells us available images in there. So it tells us this is
12:33
we have standard and data center
12:35
and we have x 64 architecture. There's no 32 bit architecture for this,
12:39
and we have basically the core
12:41
Add the gooey version of both
12:43
and we can choose to use the default name of Scripture for each of destructed images, and that's probably your best choice.
12:48
Or I can modify this if I want to
12:50
it. I could actually slept to use just some of them or all of them.
12:54
Click on next,
12:56
and he gives us a detailed recap of what we're selecting. So selected images are there,
13:01
and we could go back if we change it. Click next.
13:05
Check the integrity of all of our install files that I go through the process.
13:11
It will get him all loaded into our environment. This is basically the same way we went through the boot that women were not doing with the Install that Web.
13:18
And once we get it configured, then we will have our image files available to us
13:24
for deployment purposes. We could deploy Sarah's our workstations this way. Service could be deployed in the same manner as workstations. Kid,
13:31
the advantage we're going to work with, for example, if we have our installed out with. But we need to have certain drivers in there for a raid array or something of that nature, we can actually included in that basic installed at whim so that when the time comes to go through the process of installing it.
13:48
We actually have all the files in all the folders, directories,
13:52
everything we need in their image through our dia de IA servicing process.
13:58
And this to take a moment, Anderson is done. We will pick up from where we are
14:01
and we're done. So we can you hang click. I'm finished here
14:05
and operations complete. And now we have the images in for the installation in our environment
14:11
that gets us our images in.
14:13
We can then work with the rest of our Bible. We can actually put in the driver group if we need to have drivers for a certain environment.
14:18
And we also want to consider what we're gonna do with multicast transmission.
14:22
So multicast transmissions. If we go ahead on their we right click and you create multicast transmission,
14:28
you will give us a name for it. We could call it whatever you want in this particular environment, we're going to say put in
14:35
2012 are to branch service, so
14:39
Windows
14:41
Server
14:43
2012 are too
14:46
branch servers,
14:48
so brandish servers.
14:52
Whatever name we want, they click on next
14:56
and we see its like to follow stuck the image group that contains the image and those We have it there. And we said to collect the image you want to transmit using multicasting. You can choose any one of these out, Celeste. So let's go ahead and choose our
15:11
basic one here. So tell us what each one is. It says saver, standard core. So for a branch we want to do course, let's go with the standard core and click out next. I could actually select
15:22
all of them if I want one at a time. But would you stand in court? Next? Says, select one of the following types to define when this trial starts, This giant mission Auto Castor scheduled caste is gonna automatically. Or am I gonna start transmission based on the following criteria?
15:37
Well, that's what we have to
15:39
always make a decision.
15:41
Do we wanna have it? Have it happened immediately, or do you wanna have it happen
15:45
at a future point in time? Well, we're gonna do auto cast. Let it go ahead. Start right away.
15:50
Quick. Next
15:52
and the you successfully created the following multicast transmission. You could come finish. You know, we have the multi class trans transmission in place. So that's what we're doing. And obviously, if we needed to put in a driver group, we could come down here under our all packages and do a
16:07
sorry, But our driver group and do a
16:08
Properties would look at that duplicate out of driver packages to this group, and we could under drivers, we could do a new package. So I had a driver package. Or do I have to drive a group and able to disable? We could make all these modifications to our environment that actually help with deploying different tests machines, And that's how we get wds up and running for deploying to our machines
16:30
there.
16:30
Obviously,
16:30
we need to deal with the next piece of the puzzle.
16:33
Once we have it all figured out, we want to make sure if we're doing this right, we have D C P properly replying, and our machines, they're picking up I P addresses that will actually let them connect
