mdt2012 to mdt2013 migration RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    currently mdt2012 on Server 2008.

    I would like to install brand new MDT2013 on server 2012 and import all images and TSs from existing MDT2012.

    Didn't even check may be there is just export option in MDT2012.

    Please provide step by step...

    Thanks.

  • Then, just copy the share to a new mdtserver or fileserver.

    Leave the old server behind, shut it down or throw it away.

    Install a new Windows Server 2012R2 server, install MDT2013 and ADK 8.1 update 1

    Open the deploymentshare from the new server, and follow the upgrade directions.

    That's it!

    Cheers!

  • Download MDT 2013, here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=40796
    Download Assessment and Deployment Kit for Windows 8.1 update 1 here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=39982

    Uninstall MDT 2012 update1, uninstall Windows Automated Installation Kit

    Install ADK 8.1 update 1
    Install MDT 2013

    Open your existing deploymentshare in MDT 2013, follow upgrade instructions.

    What actually happens is that certain scripts and xml files are updated.

    Regenerate your boot images completely. This will make sure your current WinPE 3.0 boot images are replaced for WinPE 5.0 boot images.

    Nothing to serious here.

  • just to be sure...

    I think you missed the point that I want first to install NEW server 2012 and then install MDT2013 on it.

    If you are sure that your answer does reflect the above need, it looks like I have to:

    1. install MDT2013 on a NEW Server 2012 machine.

    2. Uninstall Update 1 on existing MDT2012 running on Server 2008

    3. Copy DeploymentShare from old MDT2012 to a new MDT2013

    4. Open DS 2012 in MDT2013.

    Please confirm correct or not ....?
