Script Capture of Image?

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to script the capture of an image or does it have to be done manually through the capture wizard? I would like to be able to automate the updating or replacing of an image when I update my reference machine with patches etc.  I tried using SMARTWIM and SMARTVDK to mount/capture and replace the WIM in by Images directory, but the result is that SD doesn't recognize the .WIM as a SD captured image and won't deploy it.  This is what I was trying:

smartvdk /readonly /mount "d:\Virtualbox VMs\Win7-Image\Win7-Image.vdi" 2 y:

smartwim /capture y: d:\SmartDeploy\Images\NewWin7Gold.wim "Win7Gold"

smartvdk /unmount "d:\Virtualbox VMs\Win7-Image\Win7-Image.vdi" 2

Any ideas?  Thanks.

SmartDeploy adds information specific to your SmartDeploy account among other information to the image meta-data that SmartDeploy is going to look for when deploying the image. You'll want to capture your images using the Capture Wizard.

Thanks Jeff,

Any idea if there are plans to add command line support for the Smartdeploy functions?  The lack of the ability to automate the workflow seems like a pretty big drawback to the product.
