The deploy image action will automatically try to locate the specified image on a preferred server before going back to source. You just need to make sure the share paths are the same. For example if the source location is \\source\images\image.wim, then the UNC path on the preferred server must be \\preferred\images\image.wim.
Hi Bryce, i understand that for the deploy image actions (which mentions about the prefered server config), but this is for the "Update windows 10" actions in the system configuration stage (mentions nothing about preferred servers. i can map a preferred server through a map to preferred server, but i cant use it for the "update windows 10 action" as it requires a UNC path rather than a mapped drive

I have confirmed that it should look for the ISO file on both Peer and Preferred Servers before downloading from Source. That is not made apparent in the UI, but it does happen. You have to turn on the XTrace logging reg key for it to be logged on the client machine.
ok brilliant , thanks
Does this work for Windows 7 to Windows 10 or only 10->10?
Also what command line is being used? If you have encryption you may need to adjust the command line to handle encrypted devices?
like for McAfee EEPC we have to run "setup.exe" /auto upgrade /noreboot /ReflectDrivers "C:\Program Files\McAfee\Endpoint Encryption\OSUpgrade"
Hi all, i have a questions, what option do you use to deploy using an ISO not wim file.
We use a wim at the moment for win7 and doing some testing on win10 but i want to get away from using a gold/static image file for imaging.
The problem I found was there was no easy way to Mount the ISO natively in the Windows 7 world. So you can copy the file locally but then will need some tool to extract it and run the commands you need to perform your install. I now use 7-Zip to extract a 7z file of the install folder structure and then run my install commands. thinking about it now I probably could have used 7-Zip to extract the ISO.
