Capture and deploy T610 OSD image with SCCM PXE

We use SCCM R3, and i installed the HP imaging plug -in 1.1  I read the documentation, and it should be easy to deploy the standard HP t610 image, downloaded from the HP site..

The problem is that can't pre-configure the SCCM client

So i prefer to capture the image with SCCM..

 

 I know that i need to configure some settings like SCCM client, the FBWF, probably adding NIC drivers to boot image, Administrator autoogon etc..

Is there a manual how to capture and deploy the T610 OS with SCCM???

 

Thanx

Re: Capture and deploy T610 OSD image with SCCM PXE

The Imaging plug-in for HP Thin Clients can only be used to deploy images and has no capture facilities. You can however, capture a custom image using HP Device Manager or ThinState, and then deploy that image using the SCCM plug-in.

Re: Capture and deploy T610 OSD image with SCCM PXE

Sorry for the late reply.

For now we have 2 Thinclients, and i don't want to use another tool like HP Device Manager to capture or deploy images. I like to use SCCM for this.

I found an article to deploy Wyse TC with SCCM, and i'm looking for a similar manual for the T610

https://appservices.wyse.com/supportdownload/WES/Wyse_SCCM-WEDM_Admin_Guide_JAN2012%20.pdf

 

 I like to use PXE for deployment. Is it possible??

I'm looking into thinstate for capturing.. But all the the HP tools create a .IBR file. For SCCM i need a WIM file. So deployment would be only possible with HP plugin tools.. Correct??

 

Thanx

Steve

Re: Capture and deploy T610 OSD image with SCCM PXE

I'm in the process of capturing an T610 image with HP thinstate. Only qiestion i have is about the SCCM client. Does thinstate prepare the SCCM client, or do i have to do it manually with CCuDELCert.exe tool??

Thanx

Re: Capture and deploy T610 OSD image with SCCM PXE

I have now captured and deployed a T610 using sccm 2012 R2 mostly by following this guide 

 

http://h20566.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/template.BINARYPORTLET/public/kb/docDisplay/resource.proc...

 

couple of things i missed initially, included in the guide...

 

during the capture:

You must disable the EWF, reboot then and also stop the service once its back up. i then went on to have problems due to a config manger client was already installed and out of date. i would suggest uninstalling it anyway by using the c:\windows\system32\ccmsetup\ccmsetup.exe /uninstall command on the client.

 

task sequence:

following the guide on creating a fresh task sequence and make sure that the partition is not set to use all the drive but 95% otherwise the install wont complete due to no room for the EWF.

Re: Capture and deploy T610 OSD image with SCCM PXE

Just out of curiosity, did you have to use an unattend.xml file in either your Capture or Deployment? 

 

It seems there may be some conflicts with SCCM Task Sequence Capture/Deployment and the HP Image. 

 

I'm using a ProBook MT41 and am also intersted in using SCCM for capturing/deploying. 

 

I can pxe boot and capture/deploy just fine, but it's the fine-tuning of the enabling of Administrator account and other stuff that still seems to be getting overridden by either HP or SCCM.

Re: Capture and deploy T610 OSD image with SCCM PXE

I use a .vbs script that I created as a package in SCCM 2012 R2 (which I'm sure you could probably just run the script in the OSD as well). I call it up at the end of the OSD task sequence. Works like a charm. No need for the unattend.xml.

 

Here's the script, which sets the threshold for the filter as well as  includes exclusions for CM, SCEP and Dragon (dictation software).

 

Set objShell = WScript.CreateObject ("WScript.Shell")
'Enable File-Based Write Filter
objShell.run "fbwfmgr /enable"
'Set Threshold Size to 512MB
objShell.run "fbwfmgr /setthreshold 512"
'CM File and Folder Exclusions
objShell.run "fbwfmgr /addexclusion C: ""\RegFData"""
objShell.run "fbwfmgr /addexclusion C: ""\Windows\CCM"""
objShell.run "fbwfmgr /addexclusion C: ""\Windows\System32\Wbem"""
objShell.run "fbwfmgr /addexclusion C: ""\_SMSTaskSequence"""
objShell.run "fbwfmgr /addexclusion C: ""\Windows\BootStat.dat"""
'Nuance Dragon Exclusions
objShell.run "fbwfmgr /addexclusion C: ""\ProgramData\Nuance\NaturallySpeaking10"""
'SCEP File and Folder Exclusions
objShell.run "fbwfmgr /addexclusion C: ""\ProgramData\Microsoft\Microsoft Antimalware\Scans\"""
objShell.run "fbwfmgr /addexclusion C: ""\ProgramData\Microsoft\Microsoft Antimalware\Support\"""
objShell.run "fbwfmgr /addexclusion C: ""\Program Files\Microsoft Security Client\"""
objShell.run "fbwfmgr /addexclusion C: ""\Windows\Windowsupdate.log"""
objShell.run "fbwfmgr /addexclusion C: ""\Windows\Temp\MpCmdRun.log"""
objShell.run "fbwfmgr /addexclusion C: ""\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Local\Temp\MpCmdRun*.log"""
objShell.run "fbwfmgr /addexclusion C: ""\Windows\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Local\Temp\MpCmdRun*.log"""
objShell.run "fbwfmgr /addexclusion C: ""\Windows\CCM\Logs"""
'Reboot to commit changes
objShell.run "shutdown -r"
