In this issue, we will talk about the main methods of installation deployment; manual vs. an Admin Image. Also included are some key steps, cautionary notes, and advice from a guy that has been down this road many times. Let my mistakes be your successes!
Key Step #1- Determining Which Method of Deployment:
It might seem simple, but deciding on the best method of deployment for your installation is a key step. Typically, the method of deployment is determined by the number of users and their locations.
If you are dealing with a handful of users in the same location, a manual deployment is more than adequate but involves you walking around and touching every workstation.
If you are dealing with 10+ users or multiple locations, then creating an Admin Image is the preferred method.
