Utilizing the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit configuration database, you’ll see how to further automate deployment configurations based on a number of criteria. The configuration database enables you to configure the automatic assignment of properties based on the target computer. Examine the three methods for targeting computers: Location, make and model, and computer values as well as look at how you can assign roles to those methods that contain further configurations. Explore how you can use linked deployment points in the organization, allowing administrators to migrate deployment assets between deployment points through the use of custom selection profiles.
