IsLaptop with OSD

Hi

I'm currently using MDT 2008 with SMS 2003 OSD. Would you be able to advise
on the easiest way to check for laptop / or desktop hardware and install some
apps based on these conditions. I'd also like to manage this on a global
basis.

I was intending to use the rules and customsettings.ini under ZTI, but do I
need to process a task sequence and query using the islaptop condition? How
should I do this from the OSD Program tasks?

Many Thanks

Ian Fraser

Hi!

I solved this with the WMI query in the task sequencer. For example: I have
to install the software for
HP QuickLaunch Buttons. So I made the application in the MDT mmc. Then I
added the task sequence to install the
software in the Restore computer and user setting phase of deployment. On
the options pane of the task sequence
I added an WMI option: SELECT * FROM Win32_Computersystem WHERE Manufacturer
= "Hewlett-Packard" AND Model like "%nc6320%". This works for me.
An other solution you can read here:

or you use the deployment database.

Greetings Didi

Re: IsLaptop with OSD

Thanks very much for that.

I seem to have a further problem with the installation of the application
associated by a role. It does not work via a rule. I have checked the SQL
connectivity using ztigather run manually from a folder on the reference
machine and it is fine. It looks like it does not recognise that there is an
application associated, even though its there in the GUI and the associate is
correct. Is this a bug?

Thanks in advance!

Re: IsLaptop with OSD

Hi Ian,

Are you looking to install on all laptops or just specific make/models?

Thanks

Justin

Or you can use the Win32_SystemEnclosure.ChassisType to filter between desktops, laptops, handhelds, etc.
