OS Deployment and Image Creation

ManageEngine OS Deployer is software for the provision and image creation of operating systems and helps to automate the associated processes.

The tool helps administrators to create images of different operating system versions, to save them on a network drive, to create provisioning templates for different employee roles and to make images available on new systems via a central management console.

With the bundled functions for image creation and provision, OS Deployer supports you with standardization - towards a single operating system or a few operating systems in the company. This can reduce support, training and administration costs.

OS Deployer creates an exact hard disk image of the corresponding system, including the standard configuration, operating system, configuration files and all applications, which can be deployed on multiple systems at the same time. This makes the tool ideal for fast bare metal provisioning.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is WinPE media required?

WinPE media is required to boot the machines in to Windows Pre-installation environment to perform deployment and offline imaging.

How is OS Deployment Licensed?

OS Deployment supports machine-based licensing, which is the number of workstation and server machines on which you want to perform the deployment.

The licenses are tied to the machine’s MAC address and once you purchase a license for a machine, you can perform any number of deployments on that machine.

Depending on the operating system, you need to have either a workstation or a server license.

E.g., to perform deployment on 100 workstation machines, you need to purchase 100 workstation licenses.

How to delete automatic collection's driver repository?

Automatic collection’s driver repository is used to store the drivers which are collected during the image creation process.

If you have configured more than one of these repositories, you can delete the repository from the product console itself.

However, the repository will get deleted only in the UI and the network share has to be manually deleted by the user.

It is always required to have at least one configured driver repository to store the automatically collected drivers.

When will the driver repositories get synced?

The manual collection’s driver repository will get synced every 4 hours.

For automatic collections, since the server is directly collecting the drivers, the repository will not be synced.

How to copy an image from one image repository to another?

Currently, the image has to be manually copied from one repository to another. After copying the image to a new repository, you have to modify the repository path in the image details.

To modify the repository, select the image and view the image details. Near the image repository, select the edit icon to modify the repository path.
