Configure new WIM images to stream directly from or to the server

Configure new WIM images to stream directly from or to the server

When you capture or deploy WIM images, you have an option to stream the image directly from or to the server instead of using a local drive.

After an image is captured locally, it is sent to the server through network sockets. Some network configurations may cause issues when files are transferred this way. Streaming the image directly to the server causes its files to be copied directly to the server share instead of using network sockets.

1.
On the left navigation pane, click Settings to display the Control Panel, then click General Settings to display the General Settings page.
2.
Set the Imaging Options as required:
Default setting to capture WIM files directly to server (individual captures can be changed on the KBE image capture page): Select this option for the default setting in the KBE to stream directly to the server.
Default setting to deploy new WIM files directly from server (individual deployments can be changed on the image detail page): Select this option so the default setting on newly captured images is to deploy directly from the server.
3.
Click Save.

Specify deployment options

Specify deployment options

The System Image Detail page allows you to view the image settings, add a boot action, download the log files associated with the image, and set the options for how the appliance responds to errors. It also allows you to specify deployment options.

1.
Under Deployments, select the deployment to display the System Image Detail page.
2.
Under Deploy Options, select any of following options, as required:
Deploy directly from server: Select this option if you want to deploy this WIM image directly from the server. WIM images captured directly to the server must also be deployed directly from the server. In that case, this option appears selected, and cannot be changed.
Force continue on errors: Select this option if you want to continue the capture and the upload process even if warnings and fatal errors occur.
Include debug output in log: Select to enable debugging level logging and upload the logs to the Appliance Logs page.
Use driver feed (only with Sysprepped images): Select to enable the Driver Feed for sysprepped system images to obtain missing drivers. For more information, see Enable Dell Driver Feed for system images. For Windows K-Images and WIM images, the Sysprepped field on the System Image Detail page indicates if an image is sysprepped.
Shutdown target device after last task: Select if you want to turn off the target device when the image is installed.
Allow Appliance to calculate Auto Logon Count for Unattend file: Select this option if you want to enable the appliance to calculate the number of auto logon attempts that take place during installation. The number of auto logon attempts is written to the Unattend.xml file, that contains parameters for a Windows system setup. When this option is enabled, the appliance calculates the auto logon count by adding the number of system reboots that are specified in the tasks contained in the installation plan.
Set Auto Logon Count (Leave blank for no change): Select this option if you want to limit the number of auto logon attempts that take place during system installation. You can enter any value between zero and 99.
