  • Desktop Deployment without productivity or data loss

    Hi All,

    I'd like to know what is the easiest or widely used method of Desktop Deployment without productivity or data loss. (mass upgrade to Windows 7 from Windows Vista ?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    AWT

    Where is the data stored? On the local machine or on a Server?
    1 1 was a racehorse.
    2 2 was 1 2.
    1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
    2 2 1 1 2

      of course the data is in the workstation (for the users).

      I also wonder, do I also have to install Windows Server 2008 for using WDS ?
      since at the moment my Windows Server is only 2003 not yet 2008.

        Your users shouldn't be storing anything on their workstations, unless the workstations get backed up. How else do you protect against data loss?

        WDS is supported on Server 2003 R2, and on Server 2003 SP2 so long as RIS was installed prior to the installation of SP2.

          thanks for the reply man. oh so in this case can we conclude that:

          windows automated install kit (WAIK) --> upgrade existing OS in place only C: drive affected, no need PXE boot and all workstation must be join to domain.

          RIS/WDS --> complete install data lost completely, PXE boot needed and no need to join to domain.

            You can also look into MDT 2010. It includes a comprehensive set of scripts to help with the deployment and preserve the data: http://www.windowsnetworking.com/art...s-7-Part5.html
