SCCM provisioning requires custom properties to successfully provision machines with the desired ISO and task sequence.

About this task

Note:

If your fabric administrator creates a build profile that contains the required custom properties and you include it in your blueprint, you do not need to individually add the required custom properties to the blueprint.

For a list of custom properties commonly used for SCCM provisioning, see Custom Properties for SCCM Blueprints.

Procedure

  1. Click the Properties tab.
  2. (Optional) : Select one or more build profiles from the Build profiles menu.

    Build profiles contain groups of custom properties. Fabric administrators can create build profiles.

  3. Add the ISO location custom property.
    1. Click New Property.
    2. Type Image.ISO.Location in the Name text box.
    3. Enter the location of the ISO image that your fabric administrator provided for you in the Value text box.

    4. (Optional) : Select the Encrypted check box to encrypt the custom property in the database.
    5. (Optional) : Select the Prompt user check box to require the user to provide a value when they request a machine.

      If you choose to prompt users for a value, any value you provide for the custom property is presented to them as the default. If you do not provide a default, users cannot continue with the machine request until they provide a value for the custom property.

    6. Click the Save icon (Save).
  4. Add the remaining required SCCM custom properties.
