How to extend the MDT 2010 database with custom settings

Add a new column to the settings table (can be done with SQL Management Studio)



Give it a name and specify a datatype



Run the following stored procedure against the MDT database

EXECUTE sp_refreshview '[dbo].[ComputerSettings]'
EXECUTE sp_refreshview '[dbo].[LocationSettings]'
EXECUTE sp_refreshview '[dbo].[MakeModelSettings]'
EXECUTE sp_refreshview '[dbo].[RoleSettings]'

Edit the customsettings.ini with the new column

Under the [Settings] section add your column name to the properties line



Now its possible to add a value to the column you added.



To test this run: cscript ZTIGather.wsf /inifile:E:\deployshare\CustomSettings.ini from the scripts directory and point to the customsettings.ini file that is configured with the settings to query the MDT database.





Now we can see that the property CustomCollection002 is set to C0010000


To reference the new value you would use the variable %CustomCollection002%

  • Just what i was looking for.  Saves me reading boring MS manuals!!! LOL

  • I have setup DB etc. and in Database created a Computer entry with serial and under Make and Model an entry for Model. Problem is that when I run litetouch.vbs the model entry seems to overide the computer serial entry made. (For ex. serial number is of a Dell Optiplex 960 and model entry is Dell Optiplex 960.) Surely serial number should get preferance. When I remove the model entry then query runs all conditions associated with serial?

    How do ensure that if the serial nmber is found that the model query gets disregarded?

  • You can set the Priority in CustomSettings.ini

  • Thanks. This helped me in MDT 2013 too
