Capture USMT but deploy using K1000
Hi, we are using the K2000 to capture USMT but are not using the K2000 to deploy it. Is there a way data from the K2000 USMT capture can be deployed to a machine without a Scripted Install or System Image deployment? Can the K1000 be used for this deployment? The reason being Dell is sending us a customized image we just need to capture USMT from existing machine and deploy to a new machine
I believe this is not possible..... out of the box.
The KACE SMA (formerly known as K1000), doesn't have any built in modules\tools for USMT.
That means you will need to write your own BAT or Powershell script to Deploy previously captured states using Microsoft's LoadState Tool, then push the Script via SMA's Scripting Module.
At this point we stopped using the K2000 USMT due to UAC causing us issues. We switched to doing it all in the K1000 with Scripts and a file share.
We used to use the K2000 to do the capture and use a script we created in the K1000 to load it. Basically would download the USMT file from the K2000 and place it locally on the Machine you were deploying. We would put it in the root of C:\. We still do this but instead getting it from the K2000 we get it from the file share.
The K1000 Script we use contains the dependencies for the Windows ADK for USMT then we call the LoadState executable with these parameters. "LoadState.exe C:\USMT /i:migapp.xml /i:miguser.xml /c /r:3 /w:10 /l:C:\usmt.log /v:13". Note, we put the USMT.mig file into C:\USMT\USMT.
Hope this helps
