is there a way to run the MDT console on my system, but have processing done on the remote machine which the deployment share is on? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've been running MDT locally with the deployment share housed on a removable HD.

    I now have a server at my disposal so I was going to move my workflow to that machine. If I only move the deployment share to the server, but run the console on my computer I'm guessing all processioning will be done on my computer and there will be a lot of back and forth over the network.

    Is there a way I can have the processing run on the server, while still interact with the console locally, or is installing MDT on the server and working through RDP the only option if I want the processing to be offloaded to the remote machine?

  • Not unless you run the MDT console on the server.

    Many questions such as where do I find logs and what logs are interesting are found in: MDT TechNet Forum - FAQ & Getting Started Guide Please take the time to read it. Also if you don't post logs your problem won't be easily solved.

  • Thanks, that's what I was afraid of. I was hoping there was a best of both worlds method where I could get the smoothness of running the console locally but have all the work offloaded to the remote machine. I guess barring that, the next best option is to install the console on the remote machine and RDP in.
