Scripted Installation for offline offices

I want to take a scripted installation and put it on a DVD for offices I have that do not have a permanent connection. What should I be looking at to start this?

To be able to deploy a scripted installation you would have to setup a remote site appliance that would sync down the content of you main server to the remote location for deployment. You can choose which items to sync in the configuration of the RSA. For details on that you can find them if you select 'download remote site appliance installer' from the Deployments: Remote Sites Tab.

In the pending 3.0 release you will be able to load up KPE images on a USB drive for offline deployment, but scripted installs won't be supported by this feature.

FYI: I was unable to get the USB key image working with KPE images. Failures on all levels. The compile/write took at least 3 hours.

Tried to edit previous post but got an error.

Just opened a new thread on USB deployement.

What would be great is if you could also create a image cd/dvd as well as a USB drive from imaging. In some older computers, you are unable to boot from a USB drive... and some its just very slow rather then using a cd would be alot faster.

I am going submit an enhancement request for this right now!
