Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT) 2008

Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2008 ist die aktuelle beziehungsweise Nachfolgeversion des Tools Business Desktop Deployment (BDD) 2007. Mit dem MDT können Clients und Server nahezu vollautomatisch ausgerollt werden – vergleichbar mit den Funktionen des RIS unter Windows Server 2003. Die aktuelle Version unterstützt nun auch Vista Service Pack 1.

Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT) 2008 unifies the tools and processes required for desktop and server deployment into a common deployment console and collection of guidance. The fourth generation deployment accelerator adds integration with recently released Microsoft deployment technologies to create a single path for image creation and automated installation. MDT’s tools and end-to-end guidance reduce deployment time, standardize desktop and server images, limit service disruptions, reduce post-deployment help desk costs, and improve security and ongoing configuration management.
Microsoft Deployment Toolkit technologies eliminate interaction time required to install desktop and server operating systems. Interaction at the targeted computer may take a few moments using the Lite Touch Installation (LTI) method or it can be completely automated using Zero Touch Installation (ZTI). Zero Touch Installation utilizes Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 or Systems Management Server 2003 with the Operating System Deployment Feature Pack. Lite Touch Installation can be used when software distribution tools are not in place.
Microsoft Deployment Tookit 2008 also uses Configuration Manager 2007’s stand-alone media-initiated operating system deployment feature. This release offers project management guidance for all deployment roles and separates technical documentation for the products and technologies to facilitate automation tasks.

  • Windows Vista Business, Enterprise und Ultimate (32 und 64 Bit) RTM sowie SP1
