We are looking to implement a better solution for software deployment, inventory, software licensing and imaging. We are looking at SMS. Do you still need ghost imaging or does sms have this capability?

Don't confuse SMS software deployment of MSI with PXE servers for images

by ManiacMan In reply to SMS

I don't think SMS is designed to deploy operating systems, as it's primary use is for applications deployment. You'll still need a Ghost server or some other form of PXE server that can blast OS images down to workstations. SMS can be used to deploy patches to operating systems, but cannot deploy the OS itself. It's used for inventory of servers and workstations as well.
