Creating a deployment task

Deployment Solution

You can create many kinds of deployment tasks, such as changing the Windows system settings or applying a predefined system configuration setting. You can also capture or deploy a disk image or personality and create or restore a backup image.

A task cannot be deleted if it is currently in use by a job or policy. You can view the tasks that are used by the policies in the Jobs and Tasks view of the console. Tasks can be renamed, deleted, cloned, moved, and scheduled by right-clicking the task and selecting the corresponding option.
