Advanced Deployment Scenarios using the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2010: (Part 2 of 7)
Create and Explore the Configuration Database
The Microsoft Deployment Toolkit has the ability use a configuration database which provides a rich opportunity for customization of an automated deployment. The configuration database is a logical extension of the configuration settings normally stored in the CustomSettings.ini.
However, with the configuration database we can centrally store values, which are then referenced to retrieve the values of the properties and have a generic CustomSettings.ini that can be used on multiple deployment points. In this demonstration we’ll create the configuration Database and drill down into the new methods that made available.
