Deploiement multi boot Windows 7

Created: 07 Feb 2013 | 4 comments

Bonjour, j'utilise Altiris 6.9 SP5 M2 Deployment Solution et je désire capter/déployer mes images d'OS sur plusieurs machines (sans assistance).
Avec GHOST, c'est presque parfait. ça capte toutes mes partitions et les déploient correctement. J'ai cependant un problème lorsque que je veux renommer le nom d'ordinateur pour chaque partition sans aucune assistance humaine.

J'ai d'abord pensé utiliser un script avec les commandes BCDEDIT :

     - Démarre normalement sur la partition par défaut --> renommer l'ordinateur

     - Redémarrage de l'ordinateur

     - exécution du script bcdedit qui mettra la seconde partition en "default", ce qui permettra de booter dessus puis renommer l'ordinateur

Cependant, pour mettre une partition par défaut, il faut exécuter cette commande :

     - bcdedit /default {GUID} --> où GUID est unique et impossible (a ma connaissance) a récupérer dans une variable.

 

Du coup, je devrais aller sur chaque machine renommer, redémarrer... qui serait une perte de temps considérable.

Auriez-vous une solution à mon problème ? que ce soit d'utiliser autre chose que GHOST comme RDeploy ou Imagex ?

Merci d'avance :)
@+ bonne journée

Hello,

Can you please translate this to english?

Thanks,

have you tried to use the "Apply System Configuration" task?  It seems to me that once you boot to the second partition you could then apply a sequential configuration and rename the computer hands-free.

I'll try to get one of my friends who is, I believe, fluent in French, to also reply in case I missed something.

Hello, I'm using Altiris DS 6.9 SP5 MP2 and I would like to do unattended capture and deployment of many computers.

It was almost perfect with Ghost, capturing all partitions and deploying without problems. However there is a problem when it comes to renaming the computer in all OS partitions (again, unattended).

 

First I considered using a script with BCDEdit commandes:

  • start in production on the default partition -> rename the OS
  • restart the computer
  • run the BCDEdit script to make the 2nd OS partition default so it can boot-up on the next restart

However to switch default partition you need to run the command:

  • BCDEdit /default {guid} where the required guid cannot be put in a variable (as far as I can tell)

So, to do the multiple OS rename we'd have to go to each computer individually and boot to the secondary OS... and that would be real slow.

Is there any solution to this problem? May it be using something else than Ghost, for example Rdeploy or ImageX?

Merci d'avance :)

I am currently off-net, on a retreat of some kind. I'll be back real soon, and you sure will hear from me then ;-).

Hello,

Thanks for the translation. 

As thomas suggested, you can use 'Apply System Configuration'  with  'name + incremental numbering' to rename all clients after they boots in 2nd OS parition.

This is out of scope of imaging tools like ghost, rdeploy or imageX

Thanks,

Sachin
