Windows Provisioning setup (VMWare)

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • There exists a WDS server with MDT.
  • One would like to use Cloudforms to start a provision, then after booting, the WDS environment takes over.
  • Previously this process used sysprep, and number of tasks can be done this way.
  • It is a bit unclear how to approach this.
  • Advice for the best way to setup Cloudforms Windows provisioning with WDS/MDT is requested.
  • There is also issues setting up WDS with a PXE config in Cloudforms:
    • One cannot get the required data to create a PXE server.
    • Would this require chaining an iPXE server with the WDS PXE server?
