Recently I have deployed Linux OS With SCCM. This is currently unsupported, and i’m only able to dump a image to harddrive. Still It may be useful in some cases. I will create a howto on this soon.

  1. Have you been able to document how you deployed the Linux OS with SCCM? I have seen articles where people wraped the Linux image in an automated ghost package and deploy that with SCCM, but I’d like to avoid using ghost if possible.

    • Hi Dave,
      Just did a New post on Linux deployment. This was done in ha hurry just to share my toughts because I get a lot of questions. I will probably update With more information on how to create Linux images and how you can improve the deployment.
