On the database setup and configuration
1) Does this database collect information from the domain or is it kept local to the MDT?
2) I want to find out the amount of computures based on OU, make and model, dynamic and scalable. (possible or not)?
3) If it reaches out to the domain can I specify what OU that it gathers information from?
I have not setup the database on MDT because I do not want a broadcast situation.
system: Windows 2003 SP2
Running RIS/WDS in mix mode.
MDT loaded but no database configuration done
MDT does work limited but I still have to figure why it does not add the default computer name of a MAC address to the AD structure automatically as RIS does. Any sujestions would be helpful.
Thanks for any help in this.
The database can be configured for creating a dynamic deployment solution based on: Location, Make & Model, Roles or Computer. The database does not support querying AD for information. For a nice introduction to using the MDT database I suggest you take a look at this excellent webcast:
Microsoft Deployment Toolkit Advanced Scenarios
Hope this helps :)
