Sharing Best Practices for Designing Images
Identify and discuss several best
practices for image-based
deployment.
Sharing Best Practices for Designing Images
The following list outlines several best practices for image-based
deployment:
• Use a single image strategy to reduce the number of images to maintain
and service.
• Use a multilingual strategy to add multiple language packs to your image
to reduce the number of language-specific images that you support.
• Run the sysprep /generalize command when preparing the Windows
image to be captured, even if all computers have the same hardware
configuration.
• Do not deploy the default image (install.wim) file that is included with the
Windows product DVD directly by using ImageX. You can use the default
image only with Windows Setup (setup.exe).
• Use the imagex /flags option when capturing a Windows image to
create the metadata to apply to the image that you are capturing.
• Do not duplicate features for different architecture types in an answer
file, if you are performing cross-platform deployments.
• Create architecture-specific settings for each configuration pass in an
answer file for cross-platform deployments.
What Is Windows Deployment Services?
Windows Deployment Services is a server role that
is provided with Windows Server 2012
• Windows Deployment Services:
• Enables you to perform network-based installations
• Simplifies the deployment process
• Supports deployment to computers with no operating
system
• Provides end-to-end operating system deployment
• Uses existing technologies, such as Windows PE, .wim
and .vhd files, and image-based deployment.
Windows Deployment Services Components
Windows Deployment Services provides several
functions through these components:
Windows Deployment Services PXE Server
• Windows Deployment Services Client
• Additional Server Components
•
•
•
•
•
TFTP server
Shared folder
Image repository
Multicasting Engine
Why Use Windows Deployment Services?
Consider the following scenarios:
1. In a small network consisting of a single server
and around 25 Windows XP computers, you
want to expedite the upgrade process of the
client computers to Windows 8
2. A medium-sized organization wants to deploy
multiple servers in branch offices that are
geographically dispersed. It would be timeconsuming and expensive to send experienced
IT staff to each location to deploy the servers
Understanding Windows Deployment Services

Benefits of Software Distribution
Software distribution helps reduce total cost of ownership for application
deployment by:
Eliminating the need to provide software CDs/DVDs and
installation instructions to users
Allowing you to control how and when software is
distributed to clients
Providing users the ability to install software without
requiring administrative rights
Offering a mechanism for running any executable or
command on the client
Software distribution does not package the executables
or source files to be delivered

Creating and Deploying
Applications
Module Overview
• Overview of Application Management
• Creating Applications
• Deploying Applications
• Configuring the Application Catalog
Overview of the Configuration Manager
Application Model
The Configuration Manager application model is user centric
For Example:
When deploying an application to a
user
Application is installed locally on a
computer with affinity relationship
•
When the user logs on to
another computer, the
application, installed as a virtual
application, follows the user
•
When the user logs off, the
virtual application is not
retained
Applications vs. Packages
• Applications:
• Contain extensive
information about the
software
• Can use multiple
deployment types; the
deployment type used is
determined by rules at run
time
• Packages:
• Contain limited
information about the
software
• Can use multiple
programs, and the one to
deploy has to be
specified at the time of
deployment
Prerequisites for the Application Catalog
• The server role requirements for application management include:

following deployment types when creating an application:
•
•
•
•
Windows Installer (Native)
Microsoft Application Virtualization
Windows Mobile Cabinet
Nokia (SIS or SISx files)
The Create Deployment Type Wizard presents you with the
following deployment type in addition to the other
deployment types:
•
Script Installer (Native)
Application Management Features
Requirement rules:
• Require that client devices match requirements
• Are configured on a deployment type and only apply to that
deployment type
Global conditions:
• Are configured in the Global Conditions node or through a
deployment type when creating a custom requirement rule
• Are used as the basis for requirement rules
User device affinity:
• You can associate users with a specific device or multiple
devices
Deployment action and purpose:
• Specify the deployment action as Install or Uninstall
• Specify the purpose as Available or Required
What Is Software Center?
Software Center is the users’ default interface for managing software
deployments that have been deployed to the computer as Available
• Users can install software
that was:
•
Deployed as Required and
has not reached the
deadline
•
Deployed as Available to a
device-based collection of
which the system is a
member
• Users can configure
personal settings such as
•
•

application; when using
the automatic
configuration, only some
properties are configured
• Modify the application
after creation to set
Application Catalog
properties and other
settings
• Modify the deployment
type to add requirement
rules
Creating Applications Manually
• Application information
is entered manually on
the General page
• Application Catalog and
Deployment types pages
appear in the wizard
only when manually
creating applications
• Deployment types can
also be created manually
or automatically
Creating Deployment Types Manually
You can add a deployment type by using the automatic method
or the manual method
When manually creating a
deployment type:
• On the General Information page,
you must supply a name
• On the Content page, you must
provide the installation command
line
• On the Detection Method page,
you must specify a detection
method for the deployment type
• On the User Experience page,
there are no mandatory fields
What Is a Detection Method?
A procedure that enables the deployment process to determine
whether or not an application is already present on a system
Detection methods:
• Perform evaluation
before an application
installs
• Are evaluated
periodically on the client
to detect uninstalled
applications
• Can examine the
registry, file system, and
Windows Installer
database
Overview of User Experience Settings
User Experience Settings control what the user is allowed to view
and do when the deployment type is used
Logon requirement depends
on the target
Shows or hides the application
Determines if application
must complete without user
interaction
By default, reboots are
controlled by the return
codes

Deploying an Application to a User or a Device
You can deploy applications to users or devices
• If you deploy an application
to users, the application
shortcuts are only created for
the targeted users regardless
of who logs onto the system
• If you deploy the application
to a system, the application is
installed for all users of the
system
The Process for Deploying Applications
Management

site
The process for deploying
an application is as follows:
•
Distribution
point
•
•
•
•
An administrator creates a new
application and distributes the
content to distribution point
An administrator creates a
deployment for the application
The client system checks for policy
updates
The client system contacts the
management point for content
location
The client system downloads the
content from the distribution point
and installs the application
Options for Deploying Applications
When deploying
applications, you can:
Target a user or device
collection
• Specify an action:
•
•
•
Specify a purpose:
•
•

Configuring Requirements and Dependencies for
Deployment Types
• What Are Global Conditions?
• Demonstration: Creating a Global Condition
• What Are Requirement Rules?
• Categories for Requirement Rules
• Demonstration: Adding a Device Requirement
• Dependencies for Deployment Types
What Are Global Conditions?
Global conditions:
• Defines conditions to be tested
• Can be used in multiple deployment types and across multiple
applications
• Allow you to customize the settings you use to determine whether
a deployment type is available to a user or device
• Vary between Windows devices, Windows Mobile devices, and
Nokia devices
Some global conditions available for Windows Devices are:
Setting Type
Description
Active Directory query You can use this type to construct a query to find values in AD DS
File system
Registry key
Registry value
You can use this type to specify a file or folder to assess for
compliance on computers
You can use this type to specify a registry key to assess for
compliance on computers
You can use this type to specify a registry value to assess for
compliance on computers
What Are Requirement Rules?
• Meets requirements?
• Requirement rules specify the
conditions that must be met
before an application can be
installed
• Requirement rules are
defined in a deployment type
• When a deployment type is
evaluated, the requirement
rule must be satisfied to be
run or made available
• Requirement rules can be
created for many different
reasons such as:
• Hardware requirements
• Drive space requirements
Categories for Requirement Rules
Requirement Rules:
• Are classified based on the types of settings they are used to
evaluate
• In general, there are two way to evaluate a rule
• Value. A value based rule allows you to specify a value and an
operator to use for comparison
• Existential. A existential based rule checks the existence of the
specified condition
The categories and some example Requirement Rules:
Category

Dependencies for Deployment Types
• Dependencies are defined on a
deployment type
• Dependencies allow you to ensure that
application requirements can be
enforced or remediated
• Dependencies define the application
deployment types that must be
installed before the deployed
deployment type can be installed
• After the dependencies are fulfilled, the
application will install
• Dependent applications can be
configured to install automatically

Reasons for Implementing Multiple Deployment
Types
• Using multiple deployment types
lets you customize the installation
based on the target computer
• The deployment type is
determined by requirements and
priority of deployment types
• For example
One deployment type locally installs
the application on a desktop
computer
• A different deployment type installs
the application as a virtual application
on a laptop
•

What Is a Simulated Deployment?
Simulated deployment allows you to test a deployment without
distributing files
A simulated deployment is treated like a normal deployment
for evaluation purposes
The results of the simulation are found in the Monitoring
workspace under the Deployments node with other deployments
The status shows you the number of systems that would have
attempted to install a deployment type and which one it would have
attempted to use for the installation
The status also shows which systems did not meet the requirements
such as detection rules and dependencies including the requirements
they did not meet
Deploy to device collections for best results when using
device based requirements
What Is User Device Affinity?
• User device affinity allows a user to
be associated with a device
• Users can have an affinity with
multiple devices
• User device affinity can be used as
a requirement in an application so
that applications are automatically
installed on users’ systems if the
system meets any other requirement
rules
• When a user accesses a device
without an affinity relationship:
•
•
Applications could be configured not
to install
Applications could use a different
deployment type such as deploying
a virtualized application
Methods for Configuring User Device Affinity
• Client Settings:
• If Automatically configure user device
• If Allow user to define their primary
devices is set to True, users use
Application Catalog to set the UDA
relationship
affinity from user data is set to False, the
usage data is still recorded and
administrators can approve or deny the
request for relationship
Managing Applications
• What Is Application Revision History?
• Retiring Applications
• Uninstalling Applications
• What Is Application Supersedence?
• Demonstration: Configuring Application
Supersedence
What Is Application Revision History?
• Whenever an application is
modified, the changes are
tracked and stored in the
Configuration Manager
database
• You can view a previous
version using the View
button
• You can restore previous
versions of an application if
you need to
• Restoring a previous version
creates a new revision of
the application
Retiring Applications
• You cannot create new
deployments with retired
applications
• You cannot modify a
retired application
• You can reinstate a
retired application at any
time
Uninstalling Applications
• You can uninstall an application by
creating a deployment with the uninstall
action
• An uninstall will not execute if the client
is the target of a deployment with the
install action
What is Application Supersedence?
• Application supersedence allows
you to specify an upgrade path for
applications
• When you configure application
supersedence, the old application
is no longer available
• You can leave the old application
on the system, upgrade it, or
completely uninstall it
• You can view the relationships with
the View Relationships button in
the ribbon
