Installing and Configuring Windows Deployment Services in Windows Server 2012 - Part 2

In part 1, I installed Windows Deployment Services in MS02. In this part, I will configure the Windows Deployment Services in MS02.

Initial configuration of Windows Deployment Services
1. On MS02, log in as Domain Administrator.
2. Launch "Windows Deployment Services".
3. Expand "Servers >".
4. Right-click "", select "Configure Server".

5. On "Before You Begin" window, click "Next".

6. On "Install Options" window, select "Integrated with Active Directory".

7. On "Remote Installation Folder Location" window, leave default path, click "Next".

Remark: Make sure the remote installation folder must be under NTFS volume.

8.  On "System Volume Warning" window, click "Yes".

The remote installation folder should be stored on a separate volume or disk. In my lab environment, there is 1 hard disk with 1 volume in MS02.

9. On "PXE Server Initial Settings" window, select "Respond to all client computers (known and unknown)".

10. Click "Next".

Remark: This option respond the known computers, which are created in Active Directory, or unknown computers to install the Windows image by network.

11. On "Operation Complete" window, clear "Add images to the server now" check box.

12. Click "Finish".
