Depending on whether you have Sysprep'd Windows properly, follow this guide to make sure: http://community.landesk.com/support/docs/DOC-7444, you should be able to just fill out the information under "Sysprep Options" when you create the deploy script. There is no need to select "Use existing Sysprep file as a template" as it will automatically use the file it creates in \\core\ldmain\files\deploy and inject it into Windows for you.
Hope this helps.
Sorry the path it stores the xml file is \\core\ldmain\landesk\files.
You can make your own.
You have to install and use Windows AIK to make a answer file yourself. Open windows system image manager.
If you use LD 9 sp2 or prior you need windows aik vista version.
For LD 9 SP3 use Windows aik windows 7 version.
You'll also need a vista or windows 7 cd depending on which aik version you use.
I use this method and it is working fine. Personaly, for security issues, I choose to join the domain, not with the sysprep method, but with a provisioning task. The Domain administrator login name and password should not be written any where. I use Landesk environment variables, and it is working fine.
My OSD method :
Windows environment :
- Backup old profiles...
- deploy the Windows 7 OS partition.
- Copy some needed files.
- Sysprep configuration is run at first boot
- Install Landesk Agent
- Join the domain
- Install all softwares I need. (The Windows partition is empty of all softwares and is always the same one).
- Shutdown the computer
I hopes it could help you.
