Windows Deployment Services
The Campus WDS service is intended for one-time or infrequent system imaging, such as the remediation of a compromised or inoperable system, or the deployment of a new computer to a faculty or staff user.
Access to WDS is limited to an authorized Technical Support Contact (TSC) and/or IT support staff for a department or college. To be authorized, ITS must certify that a department's network meets the minimum requirements to participate in the service.
- Deploys a Windows desktop or server operating system image over the campus network (see Available Windows Images for a list of operating systems)
- Streamlines rebuilds, upgrades, and new computer deployment - systems may be ready for use in less than one hour when complimented with a systems management service
- Compatible with a variety of hardware
- For large scale deployments, a local WDS service may be needed
The WDS service is available at no cost to authorized staff.
