  • How would you change this CS.ini

    UserLocale=en-US
    UILanguage=en-US

    I want to create a 2nd MDT Share on the same server WDS and MDT are hosted, is this possible using PXE boot? If so can someone point me in the right direction?

    Is there a way to display all details before you hit begin?

  • DeployRoot Property should be in BootStrap.ini file and not CS.ini. In MDT Console, open help from menu bar and search for "DeployRoot".

    The CS.ini you pasted, does indicate a few things you want to accomplish. 2 sites - 2 Images and 2 Deployment Shares. Also, there are a lot of typo's in CS.ini like NEWCOMPUTER. There is no property like this - it is a value for Property called DeploymentType.

    If you detail out on what you want to do with PXE etc, maybe we can help.

  • a second share is not a problem since it would be a totally different deployment share.

    once you update the second deploymentshare you just need to add the second litetouchPE.wim to WDS.

    and you have two deploymentshares you can boot from

  • Vik, I have changed the cs.ini - Thanks for the clarity.  I want to have one share for sysprep and capturing and the other for image deployment.  I have read this is the best method but I cannot find out how to make them correctly.  I would like to boot into PXE and it say Production or Testing or something along those lines.

    I also cannot get my images to join the domain :(

    At the end it just says it failed to join the domain after 4 attempts. I clicked okay and joined the domain with the same credentials that are in my original cs.ini.
