After you install Windows Deployment Services, you will need to configure the server. The server configuration depends on which role services that you install.
In this section:
- Transport Server.
You can install only the Transport Server role service. This role
service provides a subset of the functionality of Windows
Deployment Services and you can install it in environments that do
not have Active Directory Domain Services, DHCP, or DNS. You can
use Transport Server to network boot computers into Windows
Preinstallation Environment (Windows PE), transmit data (including
operating system images) using multicasting, or both.
- Deployment Server.
You can install both the Deployment Server and Transport Server
role services, which provides the full functionality of Windows
Deployment Services. (You cannot install only Deployment Server
without Transport Server.)
