Crucible WDS Depolyment Overview
Crucible WDS Running on FreeNAS
This is the deployment system used at our office for imaging computers
We are using the Crucible WDS system at our store to deploy windows images on client machines. We have this installed in a FreeNAS system using their plugin system. The documentation for getting this setup is on the Crucible WDS site and is pretty thorough. We have this system setup using PXE network boot and it allows us to go from a blank partition to loaded Windows system in about 8 minutes. We are building the images and loading the updates then running Microsoft sysprep to prepare the images for upload to the Crucible Server.
Here is a demo of the server in action
