Integration of DaRT with MDT
In order to take control of the station being deployed, the monitoring must be activated.
From the directory where DaRT is installed, copy the Toolsx64.cab 1 file to the MDT DeployementShare / Tools / x64 folder. If you also use the 32bits version do the same in the x32 folder.

The WinPE generation wizard is displayed, at each step click on Next 1 .

Once the image is complete, close the wizard by clicking Finish 1 .
Add or replace the image on the WDS server.
