How to disable deep freeze?


All replies

  • Can you please provide more details. How is this related to SCCM? Seems like a question directly related to a third party product.

  • Disabling deep freeze is not a feature in CM07. You need to know how you disabled it int the software and then you can create a script/package in SCCM to do that.

  • You can reboot DF frozen or thawed by using the DFC.exe program in \windows\system32 Syntax is;

    dfc.exe  /yourDFpassword / bootthawed


    dfc.exe  /yourDFpassword / boottfrozen

    You can also use DFC.exe to query the status of DF -  DFC.exe /get /isfrozen

    A simple VB script to reboot thawed is

    ' BootThawed
      Set objShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
      objShell.Run("DFC /yourDFpassword /BOOTTHAWED")

    you can change this to reboot frozen by simply chaning /bootthawed for /bootfrozen
