Couple SmartDeploy and WDS Questions

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

For Question 1, the answer is - essentially yes, but there are some additional details about how it compares to SmartDeploy push deployment that you'll want to take a look at. Here is a blogpost that explains this in detail:


For Question 2: Yes, you can absolutely use SmartDeploy with WDS in this manner. If you select your OS image by browsing to the network share and selecting the image, it would copy across the network just like any other file. This is a fine scenario as long as you're deploying less than 25 computers at a time. If you're deploying more than 25, you'll definitely want to add the image to WDS and enable multicast, as this will result in greater deployment speed with this number of clients. 

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out at support (at) smartdeploy.com.
