Use MDT share on two locations, servers? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm using Dropbox to make a backup of my MDT-share (lab-environment).
    Now it would also be interesting to use it effectively on the two locations (home lab and laptop which I carry around (runs several vm's). I'd like to avoid creating multple shares since my content would double then (Windows OS-es, Applications etc) without really needed.

    What would be the best way to achieve? Pls advise.

    J.

  • if you want to make a backup of your deployment share, then it all depends on how much custom *stuff* you added to the Applications, Operating Systems, Drivers and Scripts.

    In most cases, If I wanted to backup my applications (for example) , and the command lines entered into the MDT console, I would just archive the DeploymentShare$\Control and DeploymentShare$\Applications folder. Most everything else can be reconstructed

  • Jan,

    You then need two boot images, 1 that points to the share from your dropbox, the other one will point to your prod_server.

    Although this might seem handy, I wouldn't recommend syncing MDT with tools such as dropbox or onedrive, simply because I cannot predict the behavior on files if files are changed (your OS image for instance)

    But that's something I'll leave up to you to decide.

    Cheers!
