Hacking the Task Sequence 2015

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The ConfigMgr OSD Task Sequence engine is a powerful tool for OS Deployments. The things that can be done with it are almost limited to the imagination and scripting ability

In this session, we will go behind the scenes of the Task Sequence Engine to look at the Task Sequence environment. Learn how to manipulate Task Sequence steps using PowerShell and the never before seen iResultObject! Also, learn some tips and tricks on how to pause, interact, resume and debug a Task Sequence when developing your own custom steps. Using some cool 1E technology, free yourself from the Matrix and take complete control of the Task Sequence. Learn how to overcome certain limitations like read only variables. Tweak your Boot Images so that they always contain the tools and utilities that are needed for ultimate success.
