  • Create a Database and assignt it to your deployment share.

    Configure your Details in the ROLES you create as such

    UDSHARE = Share Path of your MIGDATA



    SKIP ALL in the Wizard Control (No user input)

    Name the Role Something meaningful like USMT Capture

    Create a Replace task Sequence

    Assign the Role you created to that Task Sequence

    In the Make and Model Section,

    Create all entries of for all Make and Models you plan on doing with this scenerio.

    (If your unsure on how to find out how WMI reads the make and model of a system run this command as admin on the system in question: "WMIC computersystem get model" "wmic computersytem get manufacturer")

    Create a Role for these Models something like "Replace" Assign these role to these models

    Assign Standard Client Task Sequence to "Replace" Role:

    Fill out as many fields in the "Replace" Role so your task sequence can be automated. and then select YES on the Wizard section to skip all the Wizard Pages.

    If you have a domain make sure you use a service account with the right privalages to join computers to the domain. If your naming scheme is something like Department code + SerialNumber this could make the computer naming a lot easier for you.

    Use a deployment tool like SCCM or Script Logic to push LiteTouch.vbs or wsf to your clients needing replacment. It will launch litetouch to capture user state, reboot and then launch the second task sequence to format and install the OS.

    I'm sure I excluded some details but I hope you get the picture.
