Check out this tool:
It basically maps a drive to your preferred server.
You can create a self executable .exe of your LANDesk agent from the LANDesk console, put that agent out on your preferred server. Then in your sysprep or post configuration script, Launch Prefmap.exe, map to your preferred server, copy the self executable .exe to the local machine and execute it.
This looks really good and they did a really clean job on the code from the few tests I ran. I will try this out over the next few days and see what I come up with. I have written a few AutoIT scripts in the past and this overall looks very nice from what I see. Thanks for the heads up on this. After I test it I will share my results on this discusstion in case anyone readers it as well.
Okay so I went to do my first test with the actual imaging process itself and I am running into one thing. I need to use the sysprep, but I want to disable agent install process. When I remove the directory for the WSCFG32.EXE and the credentials and attempt to save the OS deploy script it will not let me save it. I receive the following error:
save it first and then remove the lines manually in your sysprep through an advanced edit on your script.
That is actually excatly what I did while I waited for a response. I was trying to reduce the amount of editing I do in advanced edit as I managed 30+ sites with different OUs and naming schemes so of course comes the plenty of OSD scripts with it for each OS. I was just hoping that you had another answer .
Though currently I have to edit each one because of a card reader issue that I have. (http://community.landesk.com/support/ideas/2558)
I am currently finishing up some agent deployments because of some recent MCPs applied. Sometime either next week I will do more in depth tests. Thanks for your advice with this. So far liking it a lot.
