  • Hello,

    The best way to realize a distributed deployment of Windows 10 is SCCM.

    But, you can design a SCCM-like environment with a few server roles :

    • An "MDT admin" server on which you build your Tasks Sequences, boot images etc...
    • In bootstrap.ini, put the right local server for deployment (you can use gateway detection to provide the good answer)
    • A "publish share" where you'll put the MDT Repo
    • A DFS-R config to replicate sur "publish share" on numerus servers you need for your distributed environment
    • On each server, you manually (or via script) configure WDS with the boot image

    After each update of your MDT repository, you'll need to copy it to the publish share, wait for replication, and replace boot image and each WDS server.

  • Thanks for explaining the design Sylvain.

    I require a diagram that explains this.

  • Here is a design :

    Here is an example of bootstrap.ini :

    [DefaultGateway]
    192.168.75.1=SiteA
    192.168.44.1=SiteB
    
    [SiteA]
    mySite=A
    TimeZoneName=Romance Standard Time
    DeployRoot=\\sitea\publish
    
    [SiteB]
    mySite=B
    TimeZoneName=Romance Standard Time
    DeployRoot=\\siteb\publish
    
    [Default]
    DeployRoot=\\hq\publish
