Michael Niehaus' Windows and Office deployment ramblings
A few people have asked about the changes made in MDT 2012 and MDT 2012 Update 1 in regards to the MDT database. There aren’t that many changes, but here they are:
If you have an existing database, no properties will be removed; the properties marked as “removed” above just don’t get created in new databases.
If you have an existing database, the properties marked as “added” above will automatically be added to your existing database.
Any customizations that you might have made to your database should be preserved.
After upgrading from mdt 2012 to mdt 2012 update 1, the database tables in the mdt mmc console are empty, but when i browse the tables through sql express manager they are all still there. How do i bring them back into mdt 2012 update 1? Thanks.
Have you got any best practice documentation for upgrading our MDT infrastructure from MDT 2010 Update 1 to MDT 2012 Update 1 to make the process as seamless as possible? We currently have 7 deployment servers running Server 2008 R2, WDS, WAIK and MDT 2010 Update 1. We are usink LDS's and we have a central MDT DB.
