Task Sequence – Beyond the Docs
ConfigMgr Task Sequence materials based on real world experience
This Task Sequence Basics Beyond the Docs series sets out to document and explain the ConfigMgr Task Sequence step by step. The main purpose of the Task Sequence has been Operating System Deployment. However, in more recent years, we’ve actually started using it far more for other purposes, mainly in-place upgrade (IPU) and complex application installations.
In each Task Sequence Basics post, we will cover each step that is currently available (as of CM 2002). I’ll have an image or two of the step, a few examples, and info about the step itself.
We will also cover Operating System Deployment (OSD) Task Sequences, and In-Place Upgrade (IPU) Task Sequences. The posts will cover the differences in requirements, content, and use cases.
This series goes Beyond the Microsoft Docs, where the real world meets the documentation.
