How To Detect A Completeted Deployment w/out using WMI filter - Local GPO RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using MDT 2013 to generate offline media to deploy windows 7 to stand alone(non-domain) machines.  My deployment failed due to the applied Local GPO policies.  One solution is to use WMI filter to detect a completed deployment in order to apply the GPO.  However, it is my understanding that WMI filter is available only through Active Directory Domain Services.  Since my build environment is a standalone(non-domain) machine is there a way for me to create WMI filters?  

    Alternatively is there a way to detect when a deployment is complete without using WMI filter?

    My build environment = Windows 7 Enterprise(non-domain), MDT 2013

    Deployment Target=Windows 7 standalone

  • Hi,

    First thing comes to mind is let the machine send an e-mail when it is ready:

    http://www.deploymentresearch.com/Research/tabid/62/EntryId/19/Configure-MDT-2010-to-send-an-email-when-deployment-is-completed.aspx

    Second one is to do a remote file/folder check if C:\MININT and C:\_SMSTaskSequence folders are still present

    Last one, since bdd.log can be echoed back to the deploymentshare, do a check if the "Cleaning up C:\MININT directory." line is present, which indicated MDT has finished installing.

    Cheers!
