What are WDS (Windows Deployment Services)



Windows deployment services use for network operating system installation.

Windows Deployment Services is a function that accessible for computer running with Windows Server 2008.

It allows the automatic consumption of operating system images.

WDS transfer operating system images once to all the computers within the network.

 To access windows deployment service network computer should have PXE-compliant network card.

Thank You

What are WDS (Windows Deployment Services)


Hi dear,

The Windows Deployment Service is redesign of RIS and ADS. RIS means Remote Installation Services and ADS means Automated Development Services. WDS is combination of these two, and updated version of these two combinations. With using WDS you don’t want to install any windows OS by CD or DVD. You can directly deploy over the network. You can reduce complexity and cost of manual installation with network base installation. You can use standard and reliable windows setup technology.

You can have better guide from specialists for common desktop deployment technologies, network components such as DHSP, DNS and etc. DHSP means DynamicHost Configuration Protocoland DNS means Domain Name System. It also Allows you to add driver packages to the server.
