Changing a computers asset tag in the MDT database

My brother (Stefan van Bruggen) wrote this function for me. I will be using this function in my script(s) that I’m writing to allows my customers and co-workers to add and change various information without manually manipulating the MDT SQL database.

The script uses the MDTDB module created by Michael Niehaus (which can be foundĀ HERE). This module allows you to change a lot of information in the database except for the asset tag.

Add this to the MDTDB.psm1 to be able to change the asset tags and the other scripts, which I will post on here soon.

 

Make an existing MDT (2012 update 1) enviroment ready for Windows 10

In this post, I will describe the steps needed to update a existing Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT) 2012 environment to MDT 2013 Update 2. This MDT update is needed to prepare for a new automated Windows 10 deployment.

Requirements

MDT 2013 Update 2 has the following requirements

Install Windows ADK for Windows 10

On the existing MDT server, download the Windows ADK for Windows 10 update files. I have placed these files on D:\Downloads\ADK.

  1. Log on to the server with an account that has administrator rights.
  2. Start the ADK Setup (D:\Downloads\ADK\adksetup.exe), and click Continue.
  3. On the Select the features you want to change page, select the features below and complete the wizard using the default settings:
    1. Deployment Tools
    2. Windows Preinstallation Environment (Windows PE)
    3. User State Migration Tool (UMST)

Install MDT 2013 Update 2

Download the MDT 2013 Update 2 files to D:\Downloads\MDT

  1. Install MDT (D:\Downloads\MDT 2013\MicrosoftDeploymentToolkit2013_x64.msi) with the default settings
  2. Start the Deployment Workbench
  3. Right click on your Deployment Share and click ‘Upgrade Deployment Share’. This update can take a while, depending on the size of your MDT environment.
