Imaging Overview

Two imaging systems are available on campus for campus-wide use: Windows Deployment Services (WDS), and SCCM.  These two services utilize slightly different technologies and service two different imaging scenarios.

If you have a computer joined to the WolfTech domain and need to reinstall (or reimage) it, the recommended solution is the SCCM imaging solution.  Documentation on how this imaging solution works can be found here.

If you have a computer that is not joined to the WolfTech domain — either new hardware that hasn’t been set up yet, or standalone machines that you haven’t previously joined to the domain or do not want joined to the domain, WDS is the recommended imaging solution. ┬áDocumentation about WDS can be found here.
