Accounts

When using a NAS box as OSD server, the syncronization service will 
create an account on the server, if this server is a domain controller, 
this account must be granted at least server operator permissions, otherwise 
sync will not work. 
  
When using a workgroup server with UAC enabled, you cannot use an administrative 
user, you must specify the administrator account or disable UAC. 


Shares

When an OS Deployment server is created, the following shares

are created:

Share

Description

OS Deployment

This share contains the CapaInstaller OS Deployment client, models, drivers, configuration and the images. The share is used by the OS Loader when the client is in the Windows PE environment. By default, the user that has been configured to log on (OS deployment point configuration) will be granted access to this share.

TFTPD

This share contains the Trivial FTP daemon. The share contains the Windows PE client. The content is synchronized from the OS Deployment point by the synchronization service. The service is created as a system service and therefore the domain computer is granted access to this share.


Services

When an OS Deployment server is created, the following services 
are installed:

Service
