Display Computer Information during an OS Deployment

  Skriven av Markus Lassfolk , i RSS Imported 13 April 2012 · 1634 visningar

Our CTO and founder Thorbjörn Sjövold came up with this handy little utility for displaying some computer information during the preinstall phase of an OS Deployment.
As Specops Deploy /OS is built on top of standard components such as MDT 2010 Update 1 it's easy for admins to manipulate steps within the task sequences to carry out additional functionality such as adding an email post os install or displaying some handy information during the preinstall phase like so..

Here's how you do it.. 

  • Download the sample HTA here and save it to <InstallationDrive>SpecopsDeployDeploymentRepositoryScripts directory on your Specops Deploy Image Server.
  • On the Specops Deploy /OS Image Server open the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit Deployment Workbench.
  • Open a Deployment Share and navigate to the Specops Deployment Respository which resides in <InstallationDrive>SpecopsDeployDeploymentRespository.
  • Navigate to the Task Sequences node, right click on the installationTask Sequence that you want to have the computer information dialog in and select Properties.

  • Selectthe Task Sequence tab, open the Preinstall node and select the Reportprogress step
  • Select the add button and under general choose "Run Command Line"
  • Set the name to Display Computer Information (by default it says Run Command Line)
  • Set the Command line to cmd.exe /c start "" mshta.exe "%SCRIPTROOT%SpecopsComputerInfo.hta"
  • Press OK and close all dialogs and the Deployment Workbench
  • Finally open the Specops Deploy /OS Admin tools and select the Image Server and Publish Deployment Repository to have the change pushed out to the Deployment Servers.

  • Start your deployment and you should see the computer information displayed during the preinstall phase.
