Nice to Know–Presenting applications in the MDT Wizard based on location

Posted by Mikael Nystrom on July 8, 2014

A friend (You know how you are…) asked me today “I need to have different application bundles in the MDT Wizard based on location, any ideas?” and since I cant refuse to help a friend, here is a solution.

Use WizardSelectionProfile, Selection Profile and Default Gateway

So here is a step by step, kind of.

Configure CustomSettings.ini

You need to add DefaultGateway to the customsettings.ini to match your environment. So it should look something like this:

[Settings]
Priority=DefaultGateway

[DefaultGateway]
192.168.1.1=NewYork
192.168.2.1=Stockholm

[NewYork]
WizardSelectionProfile=Wizard – HQ

[Stockholm]
WizardSelectionProfile=Wizard – BO

Create the Application folder

In the Deployment Workbench, create a Application folder, where you can store the applications that should be available at the BO site, something like this.

Create your WizardSelectionProfile’s

In the Deployment Workbench, Advanced Settings, Selection Profiles – Create a Selection Profile called “Wizard – HQ”. It should contain everything that should be selectable at the HQ site. In this case the folder is not available at HQ.

In the Deployment Workbench, Advanced Settings, Selection Profiles – Create a Selection Profile called “Wizard – BO”. It should contain everything that should be selectable at the BO site. In this case all folders are available.

Test and verify.

That should be it, so the net result would be something like this:

Running the Wizard at the BO

Apps at the BO

and running at HQ will give you this.

Apps at the HQ
