Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2012 U1 Meets Orchestrator, Rhonda Layfield-MVP

One of the most interesting improvements to MDT is the ability to integrate Orchestrator Runbooks into task sequences. If you have ever tried to figure out how to move computer objects from one OU to another during a deployment or create/retrieve computer names it is easier than ever using Runbooks. Need to generate emails alerting you to failed deployments (or successful) – Runbooks can do that too. The Deploy to VHD task sequences automate the creation and deployment of VHD images – see exactly how in this session.
