How can I configure the Remote Installation Service options?

A. To configure a RIS server perform the following:

  1. Start the Active Directory Users and Computers MMC snap-in (Start - Programs - Administrative Tools - Active Directory Users and Computers)
  2. Select the computers container
  3. Right click on the computer and select Properties
  4. Select the Remote Install tab
  5. You can now select the clients that the server responds to and can also select to let the service perform a self check by clicking 'Verify Server'. Clicking Advanced Settings allows rules for new computer names to be set and also extra images and tools can be added

Client options are configured using the domain/site/OU policy object and is this example we look at the domain GPO

  1. Start the Active Directory Users and Computers MMC snap-in (Start - Programs - Administrative Tools - Active Directory Users and Computers)
  2. Right click on the domain and select Properties
  3. Select the 'Group Policy' tab.
  4. Select the domain policy object and click Edit
  5. Expand the User Configuration\Windows Settings\Remote Installation Service
  6. Double click 'Choice Options'

    Allow and Deny are obvious but 'Don't care' means let other policies take effect (as many times you will have multiple GPO's affecting a single client)
  7. Make any changes
  8. Click Apply then OK

Once you have made the changes force a reload of the policy
