The purpose of this blog is to provide an inside look at System Center Configuration Manager 2007 (ConfigMgr 07) Operating System Deployment (OSD). OSD began as a Feature Pack for Systems Management Server 2003 (SMS 2003), and has been promoted to full feature status in ConfigMgr 07. In the following blog posts, I’ll try to provide an in-depth technical look at many of the various components which comprise OSD. I plan to start off by delving into a few of the OSD components with which I’ve been most directly involved, and see where it goes from there. If there are specific OSD-related topics you’d like to see covered, please feel free to leave a comment and I’ll see what I can do.
