PXE boot alternatives? Different parts of the organization uses SCCM, I use MDT. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi guys, I am wondering if I have any options for our situation.

    The IT department uses PXE booting with SCCM, while I use MDT.  I am in charge of a few labs at my school, so roughly around 200 pcs or so.  I ended up creating offline media usbs to deploy this past year, however I am looking for an alternative approach as the images are beginning to become quite large and the usbs I have been using have been becoming corrupt.  I just taught myself MDT this year so I am fairly new but had to pick up quickly.

    I am wondering if there is a way to have the PCs I am in charge of to PXE boot from either a NAS Server I control, or to specify a different IP to point to my MDT server with PXE boot, or is there a way I can just hook up a laptop to a switch that is off the domain/offine and have the PC's connected to it boot from the laptop?
