Michael Niehaus' Windows and Office deployment ramblings
As mentioned previously, MDT 2010 now allows you to create as many folders as you want, in whatever hierarchy you want. Once you have all of these folders, you need a convenient way of selecting one or more that you want to use for various activities. That’s where selection profiles come in: they allow you to select a set of folders to use.
Selection profiles are used for several purposes in the Deployment Workbench and in Lite Touch deployments themselves:
There are several built-in selection profiles, all of which are read-only so they can’t be modified or deleted:
You can create as many additional selection profiles as you want. Just right click on the Selection Profiles node and choose “New Selection Profile”. The wizard will ask for a name and the folders you want to include. You can select as many or as few folders as you wish.
It’s worth pointing out a few other behaviors too:
This should make it easier for you, as you don’t need to worry about editing selection profiles each time you add a new folder or remove an existing one.
