Lesson 1

Using Remote Installation Services, Part 1

Components of RIS

The Microsoft Windows 2000 operating system Remote OS Installation feature was created based on customer feedback requesting the ability to deploy an operating system throughout an enterprise without physically visiting each client computer. By combining Remote Installation Services (RIS) with other Microsoft IntelliMirror management technologies features
  1. User Data Management,
  2. Software Installation and Maintenance, and
  3. User Settings Management,

companies benefit from better disaster recovery with easier operating system (OS) and application management, resulting in fewer calls to help desk staff. This module is the first of two modules covering RIS in which you will learn the components of RIS as well as how to install and configure RIS. By the end of this module, you should be able to:
  1. Describe the components of RIS
  2. Install and configure RIS
  3. Authorize the RIS server and assign user permissions
  4. Identify remote installation options that can be configured, and configure client names and locations
  5. Define pre-staging
  6. Configure client installation options
  7. Configure maintenance and troubleshooting utilities

The next lesson provides an overview of RIS.
Remote Installation Services (RIS): The Remote Installation Service manages and distributes Windows 2000 Professional image files to clients enabled for remote boot either via the Preboot Execution Environment (PXE) or from RIS boot disk.
