    Imaging on an isolated network?


      How can I set up a LANDesk boot media (USB preferred) to image a machine that is isolated from the Core server?


      I know i can use the LANDesk Boot Media creator to create a bootable USB stick, but I don't know how to do a few things:


      1. Remove the network initialization - Let's assume that the OS image will be stored locally on the USB stick so no network is needed at all.
      2. Remove the autostart of ldprovisioning - provisioning tasks won't work off the network, and neither will authentication.
      3. Create an entry somewhere so that cmd is loaded automatically.
      4. Create a batch file to execute the provisioning tasks manually.


      Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!

          You need to mount the WinPE image on the USB stick and change the startnet.cmd to call an Imaging cmd/vbscript/whatever that is saved on the USB stick, together with the image and the imagingtools you need. In the imaging script, you basically write out the commands you would have otherwise had in your provisioning templates, all relative to x:, the root of the USB stick after booting from it.
