The release of Workflow 7.5 revolutionizes the concept of community-based documentation by creating component wiki pages for every component included in Workflow. This new component wiki model makes structured, community-based content available at its point of use.

You can access these component pages in the articles section of the Endpoint Management Community. You can also access these component pages from within Workflow Designer that shipped with ServiceDesk 7.5. Once Workflow 7.5 is released, you can access the component pages from within the Workflow Designer.

As a member of the Workflow community, you can earn Symantec Connect points and help others in the Workflow community by adding your knowledge, use cases, and examples to the wiki pages for the components that you use

Symantec will continually add content to these pages. However, we encourage you to submit ideas, use cases, and suggestions to help develop the community based articles.

We hope...

As an innovation leader, Symantec has broken new ground again, this time in developer documentation. After an in-depth review of documentation for development frameworks similar to Workflow, we found that the best available documentation is community based. Unfortunately, community-based documentation tends to be both unstructured and difficult to find.  

For the upcoming release of Workflow 7.5, we have revolutionized the concept of community-based documentation by creating component wiki pages for every component included in Workflow. These wiki pages are available inside the Workflow Designer, where Workflow developers need to find it, as part of each component’s Online Help. This new component wiki model makes structured, community-based content available at its point of use.

When running "boot to PXE" or "boot to automation" from the console, it is common to see this coming up on the client machine instead of WinPE:

This will result in a LOOP as the client will boot into Production and then the "boot to PXE" or "boot to automation" task will be picked up again until it times out.

 

Please check the BIOS Boot Setup; very likely "Network Boot" is NOT set as FIRST:

So to correct this, please modify to:

and the client should now boot into WinPE 4.0 as sequence below:

DeployAnywhere drivers:

DeployAnywhere Drivers will always match the deployed(production) operating system - in this example Windows7

 

 

 

How To:

 

To start searching for the drivers we need a client machine, for example an out-of-the-box laptop/desktop with OS installed (Windows7 in our example).

 

1 - Plug the machine to the network so the NIC system information will get populated

2 - Run msinfo32.exe
