MDT: use with a database

Example of use


In this part, we will add a computer to the database that will be identified by the MAC address of its network card and we will assign the following parameters:

  • Name of the computer
  • Workgroup
  • TaskSequenceID(Deployment sequence)

Before you begin, you must recover the address of the network card.


Under Hyper-V, the virtual machine must have been started before a MAC address is assigned to the adapter.
