In my corporation bootable media is used to set up workstations. To guarantee that the deployment team employs the most up-to-date bootable stick we apply certificates to "expire" the media at certain periods.
There is a bulk roll out impending and to accelerate the setting up process we are contemplating using individual media for the deployment.
We would like to ensure that these media are no longer functional, run out periodically.
Who knows how this can be done?
Can SCCM (System Center Configuration Manager) handle this?
Please any idea?
SCCM (System Center Configuration Manager) problem
Yes, I think the system center configuration manager should be of help you with the issue of handling your media and making them no longer functional.
With its device management capability, it will allow you to deploy the media as you like, manage the settings and even enforce password policies on the usage of the Medias if you like. But in you case, it will help you in making the bootable Medias nonfunctional depending on your company policies, and this it will be useful through integration with Windows Embedded Device Manager 2011.
Hope this helps.
