How to Know You are Using Scripts from MDT 2010 November 17, 2009

Posted by tmintner in Uncategorized.

We’ve had a few emails over the last few weeks where certain variables or actions in the task sequence in MDT 2010 were either not functioning at all or were not behaving as expected.  After looking at the log files, it was pretty clear that a mixture of MDT 2008 boot images were being used with MDT 2010.  So how can you tell if you are using a MDT 2010 boot image?  The easiest way to tell is to look in the bdd.log file.  IN MDT 2010 we added a version line to each of the scripts that are run so if in the first 15 or so lines of the BDD.LOG you do not see this: Microsoft Deployment Toolkit version: 5.0.1641.0 , then your boot images are probably running scripts from MDT 2008.


To fix this you would, right click on the DeploymentShare and choose Update.  Then you would choose Completely regenerate the boot images as shown below:



Now that your boot images are updated you will either need to burn new CDs or re-import the boot images into WDS
