Microsoft 70-411 Exam – Q30

You have a server named Server5 that runs Windows Server 2012 R2. Servers has the Windows Deployment Services server role installed.

You need to ensure that when client computers connect to Server5 by using PXE, the computers use an unattended file. What should you configure? To answer, select the appropriate tab in the answer area.

Correct Answer:

To automate the installation, create the appropriate unattend file depending on whether you are configuring the Windows Deployment Services screens or Windows Setup. We recommend that you use Windows System Image Manager (included as part of the Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit) to author the unattend files. The Windows System Image Manager (Windows SIM) creates and manages unattended Windows Setup answer files in a graphical user interface (GUI).

You will then need to copy the unattend file to the appropriate location, and assign it for use. You can assign it at the server level or the client level. The server level assignment can further be broken down by architecture, enabling you to have different settings for x86-based and x64-based clients. Assignment at the client level overrides the server-level settings.

To associate a client unattend file by architecture
1. Create an Unattend.xml file with settings applicable to Windows Deployment Services.
2. Copy the client unattend file to a folder in the RemoteInstall folder. For example: RemoteInstall\WDSClientUnattend.
3. Open the Windows Deployment Services MMC snap-in, right-click the server that contains the image that you want to associate the unattend file with, and then click Properties.
4. On the Client tab, select Enable unattended installation, browse to the appropriate unattend file, and then click Open.
5. Click OK to close the Properties page.
