About MDT

MDT is a unified collection of tools, processes, and guidance for automating desktop and server deployment. You can use it to create reference images or as a complete deployment solution. MDT is one of the most important tools available to IT professionals today.

In addition to reducing deployment time and standardizing desktop and server images, MDT enables you to more easily manage security and ongoing configurations. MDT builds on top of the core deployment tools in the Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (Windows ADK) with additional guidance and features designed to reduce the complexity and time required for deployment in an enterprise environment.

MDT supports the deployment of Windows 10, as well as Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows Server. It also includes support for zero-touch installation (ZTI) with Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager.

Key features in MDT

MDT has been in existence since 2003, when it was first introduced as Business Desktop Deployment (BDD) 1.0. The toolkit has evolved, both in functionality and popularity, and today it is considered fundamental to Windows operating system and enterprise application deployment.

MDT has many useful features, such as:

  • Windows Client support. Supports Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10.

  • Upgrade task sequence. Provides a new upgrade task sequence template that you can use to upgrade existing Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1 systems directly to Windows 10, automatically preserving all data, settings, applications, and drivers. For more information about using this new upgrade task sequence, refer to the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit resource page.

MDT Lite Touch components

Many features in MDT support Lite Touch Installation (LTI) for Windows 10. An LTI deployment strategy requires very little infrastructure or user interaction, and can be used to deploy an operating system from a network share or from a physical media, such as a USB flash drive or disc.

When deploying the Windows operating system using MDT, most of the administration and configuration is done through the Deployment Workbench, but you also can perform many of the tasks using Windows PowerShell. The easiest way to find out how to use PowerShell in MDT is to use the Deployment Workbench to perform an operation and at the end of that task, click View Script. That will give you the PowerShell command.

If you click View Script on the right side, you will get the PowerShell code that was used to perform the task.

Deployment shares

A deployment share is essentially a folder on the server that is shared and contains all the setup files and scripts needed for the deployment solution. It also holds the configuration files (called rules) that are gathered when a machine is deployed. These configuration files can reach out to other sources, like a database, external script, or web server to get additional settings for the deployment. For Lite Touch deployments, it is common to have two deployment shares: one for creating the reference images and one for deployment. For Zero Touch, it is common to have only the deployment share for creating reference images because Configuration Manager deploys the image in the production environment.

Rules

The rules (CustomSettings.ini and Bootstrap.ini) make up the brain of MDT. The rules control the Windows Deployment Wizard on the client and, for example, can provide the following settings to the machine being deployed:

  • Computer name
  • Domain to join, and organizational unit (OU) in Active Directory to hold the computer object
  • Whether to enable BitLocker
  • Regional settingsYou can manage hundreds of settings in the rules. For more information, see the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit resource center.

Example of a MDT rule. In this example, the new computer name is being calculated based on PC- plus the first seven (Left) characters from the serial number

Boot images

Boot images are the Windows Preinstallation Environment (Windows PE) images that are used to start the deployment. They can be started from a CD or DVD, an ISO file, a USB device, or over the network using a Pre-Boot Execution Environment (PXE) server. The boot images connect to the deploymentshare on the server and start the deployment.

Operating systems

Using the Deployment Workbench, you import the operating systems you want to deploy. You can import either the full source (like the full Windows 10 DVD/ISO) or a custom image that you have created. The full-source operating systems are primarily used to create reference images; however, they also can be used for normal deployments.

Applications

Using the Deployment Workbench, you also add the applications you want to deploy. MDT supports virtually every executable Windows file type. The file can be a standard .exe file with command-line switches for an unattended install, a Microsoft Windows Installer (MSI) package, a batch file, or a VBScript. In fact, it can be just about anything that can be executed unattended. MDT also supports the new Universal Windows apps.

Driver repository

You also use the Deployment Workbench to import the drivers your hardware needs into a driver repository that lives on the server, not in the image.

Packages

With the Deployment Workbench, you can add any Microsoft packages that you want to use. The most commonly added packages are language packs, and the Deployment Workbench Packages node works well for those. You also can add security and other updates this way. However, we generally recommend that you use Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) for operating system updates. The rare exceptions are critical hotfixes that are not available via WSUS, packages for the boot image, or any other package that needs to be deployed before the WSUS update process starts.

Task sequences

Windows Embedded Standard 7 Serial Key Free

Task sequences are the heart and soul of the deployment solution. When creating a task sequence, you need to select a template. The templates are located in the Templates folder in the MDT installation directory, and they determine which default actions are present in the sequence.

You can think of a task sequence as a list of actions that need to be executed in a certain order. Each action can also have conditions. Some examples of actions are as follows:

  • Gather. Reads configuration settings from the deployment server.
  • Format and Partition. Creates the partition(s) and formats them.
  • Inject Drivers. Finds out which drivers the machine needs and downloads them from the central driver repository.
  • Apply Operating System. Uses ImageX to apply the image.
  • Windows Update. Connects to a WSUS server and updates the machine.

Task sequence templates

MDT comes with nine default task sequence templates. You can also create your own templates. As long as you store them in the Templates folder, they will be available when you create a new task sequence.

  • Sysprep and Capture task sequence. Used to run the System Preparation (Sysprep) tool and capture an image of a reference computer.

    Note: It is preferable to use a complete build and capture instead of the Sysprep and Capture task sequence. A complete build and capture can be automated, whereas Sysprep and Capture cannot.

  • Standard Client task sequence. The most frequently used task sequence. Used for creating reference images and for deploying clients in production.

  • Standard Client Replace task sequence. Used to run User State Migration Tool (USMT) backup and the optional full Windows Imaging (WIM) backup action. Can also be used to do a secure wipe of a machine that is going to be decommissioned.

  • Custom task sequence. As the name implies, a custom task sequence with only one default action (one Install Application action).

  • Standard Server task sequence. The default task sequence for deploying operating system images to servers. The main difference between this template and the Standard Client task sequence template is that it does not contain any USMT actions because USMT is not supported on servers.

  • Lite Touch OEM task sequence. Used to preload operating systems images on the computer hard drive. Typically used by computer original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) but some enterprise organizations also use this feature.

  • Post OS Installation task sequence. A task sequence prepared to run actions after the operating system has been deployed. Very useful for server deployments but not often used for client deployments.

  • Deploy to VHD Client task sequence. Similar to the Standard Client task sequence template but also creates a virtual hard disk (VHD) file on the target computer and deploys the image to the VHD file.

  • Deploy to VHD Server task sequence. Same as the Deploy to VHD Client task sequence but for servers.

  • Standard Client Upgrade task sequence. A simple task sequence template used to perform an in-place upgrade from Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 8.1 directly to Windows 10, automatically preserving existing data, settings, applications, and drivers.

Selection profiles

Selection profiles, which are available in the Advanced Configuration node, provide a way to filter content in the Deployment Workbench. Selection profiles are used for several purposes in the Deployment Workbench and in Lite Touch deployments. For example, they can be used to:

  • Control which drivers and packages are injected into the Lite Touch (and generic) boot images.
  • Control which drivers are injected during the task sequence.
  • Control what is included in any media that you create.
  • Control what is replicated to other deployment shares.
  • Filter which task sequences and applications are displayed in the Deployment Wizard.

Logging

MDT uses many log files during operating system deployments. By default the logs are client side, but by configuring the deployment settings, you can have MDT store them on the server, as well.

Note The easiest way to view log files is to use Configuration Manager Trace (CMTrace), which is included in the System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager Toolkit.

Windows Embedded Standard 7 Serial Key

Monitoring

On the deployment share, you also can enable monitoring. After you enable monitoring, you will see all running deployments in the Monitor node in the Deployment Workbench.

If you’re a Windows system administrator, you might have been forced to work with windows certificates. Working with certificates in Windows is typically one of those extra hats a sysadmin has to take on. Using the Windows certificate manager as a tool, you can do it!

Certificates are notoriously complex and hard to understand but in this article, you’ll get a chance to discover certificates aren’t that scary in Windows!

This article will cover mainly working with certificates in Windows. If you’d like to learn more about how certificates work in general, check out this article’s companion X.509 Certificate Tutorial article.

Understanding Certificate Stores

Within the Windows certificate manager, all certificates exist in logical storage locations referred to as certificate stores. Certificate stores are “buckets” where Windows keeps all certificates that are currently installed and a certificate can be in more than one store.

Unfortunately, certificate stores are not the most intuitive concept with which to work. You will read about how to differentiate these stores and how to work with them below.

Each store is located in the Windows Registry and on the file system. Refer to the below table for details. When working with a certificate in a store, you are interfacing with the logical store; not directly modifying the registry or file system. This simpler manner lets you work with a single object while Windows takes care of how to represent that object on disk.

You’ll sometimes see certificate stores referred to as physical or logical stores. Physical stores reference the actual file system or registry location where the registry key(s) and/or file(s) are stored. Logical stores are dynamic references that reference one or more physical stores. Logical stores are much easier to work with than physical stores for most common use cases.

Windows stores certificates in two different areas – a user and computer context. A certificate is placed in one of these two contexts depending on if the certificate should be used by a single user, multiple users, or the computer itself. For the rest of this article, a certificate in a user and computer context will be informally called user certificates and computer certificates.

User Certificates

If you intend for a certificate to be used by a single user, then a user certificate store inside the Windows certificate manager is ideal. This is the common use case for certificate-based authentication processes such as wired IEEE 802.1x.

User certificates are located within the current user’s profile and are only logically mapped within that user’s context. User certificates are “mapped” and are unique for each user, even on the same systems.

Computer Certificates

If a certificate will be used by all users on a computer or a system process, it should be placed inside of a store in the computer context. For example, if a certificate will be used on a web server to encrypt communication for all clients, placing a certificate in a store in the computer context would be ideal.

You’ll see that a computer’s certificate store is logically mapped for all user contexts. This allows for certificates in a computer certificate store to be used by all users, depending on the permissions configured for the private key.

For more information on private keys, be sure to check out the article X.509 Certificates Tutorial: A Sysadmin Guide.

Computer certificates are located in the Local Machine Registry hives and the Program Data folder. User certificates are located in the Current User Registry hives and the App Data folder. Below you can see a breakdown of where each type of store is located in the registry and file system.

Prerequisites

Throughout the rest of this article, you will find multiple examples showing interactions with Windows certificate stores. To replicate these examples, be sure you meet the following prerequisites:

  • Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, or newer operating system. The examples shown use Windows 10 Enterprise version 1903.
  • Familiarity with PowerShell. Although not required, this will be the language used to reference certificates where appropriate. The examples shown have all been created with Windows PowerShell 5.1.
  • You will not need any specific certificates installed to follow along, but using a self-signed certificate is beneficial.

Managing Certificates in Windows

In Windows, there are three primary ways to manage certificates:

  • The Certificates Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in (certmgr.msc)
  • PowerShell
  • The certutil command-line tool

In this article, you’ll learn how to manage certificates via the Certificates MMC snap-in and PowerShell. If you’d like to learn more about how to use certutil, check out the Microsoft Docs.

PowerShell vs. the Windows Security Certificate Manager

Since certificates can be managed a few different ways in Windows, which one do you choose? Should you go the GUI (MMC) route or command-line with PowerShell?

Note: This article is relevant both for the Windows 7 Certificate Manager and Windows 10 Certificate Manager MMC snap-ins.

First, consider the lifecycle of a certificate. If you only intend to install or remove a single certificate once, consider using the MMC. But if you’re managing multiple certificates or find yourself performing the same task over and over again, the command-line route may be the way to go. Even if you don’t know how to write PowerShell scripts, it’d be worth learning if you have many different certificates to manage.

Let’s first take a look at how to discover the certificates installed on Windows using both the Certificate Manager and PowerShell.

Using the Windows Certificate Manager (certmgr.msc)

To view certificates with the MMC, open up the Certificate Manager open your Start menu and type certmgr.msc. This will bring up the Windows Certificates MMC. This initial view will provide an overview of all the logical stores displayed in the left window.

You can see in the screenshot below the Trusted Root Certification Authorities logical store is selected.

Viewing Physical Stores

By default, the Windows certificate manager will not show the actual physical stores. To show the stores, click on View and then on Options. You will then see options to choose to show physical certificate stores. Enabling this option makes identifying the specific paths within Windows easier.

You can now see additional containers are shown under the example Trusted Root Certification Authorities logical store shown previously. The certificates are still grouped relative to their logical stores, but you can now see the physical store, “Registry”.

Inspecting Attributes in the Windows Certificate Manager

There are many attributes of a certificate you can see when viewing them with the MMC. For example, you will likely want to select specific certificates.

The easiest way for you to accomplish this is by referencing the certificate’s Serial Number or Thumbprint extension value. If the certificate was signed by a certificate authority (CA), it will have a serial number when issued. The Thumbprint is calculated every time the certificate is viewed.

You can see some of the attributes for a certificate by opening it up in the MMC as you can see below.

One important feature to point out is embedded private keys. Certificates in Windows can also have a corresponding private key. These private keys are stored in corresponding physical stores as encrypted files.

To quickly distinguish a certificate with and without a corresponding private key, look at the certificate icon. In the Windows certificate manager, if the icon simply looks like a piece of paper with a ribbon, there is no corresponding private key. If a certificate does have a private key, you will see a key in the MMC icon, and you will see a key at the bottom of the General tab when you open the certificate.

Using PowerShell

As with the MMC, you can view and manage certificates with PowerShell as well. Let’s first inspect certificates in their physical stores (the registry and file system).

By Physical Store

Using the Get-ChildItem PowerShell cmdlet, you can enumerate all of the keys and values inside of the parent HKCU:SoftwareMicrosoftSystemCertificatesCACertificates registry key path.

The below command will enumerate all of the currently-logged-in user’s certificates in the Intermediate Certification Authorities logical store.

Each entry in the Registry hive you see will correspond to the Thumbprint of the certificate for a trusted CA and it’s certificate in the corresponding property. You can see an example output of this below.

Another common store is, the Personal store. Your certificates for this store are located on the file system rather than the Registry. In the following commands we will show these different physical paths and their purposes.

Each file in the directory, returned by the command below, corresponds to a certificate installed in the Personal current user store.

Each file returned in the below command is a reference to the object for a private key created by the Key Storage Provider (KSP). The file name corresponds to the Subject Key Identifier of the certificate. Each private key you install will have a corresponding file added.

Each file in the directory returned by the below command is the unique container for the encrypted private key created by the KSP. There is no direct relationship between the file name and the certificate, but the file is the target of the pointer in the earlier command.

By Logical Store

Since working with certificates in their physical paths is uncommon, you will be working with the logical stores for the rest of the examples.

PowerShell can access Windows logical stores using the Cert:PSDrive. The Cert: PSDrive maps certificates to the physical stores much like the MMC does.

Unfortunately, the MMC and the Cert PSDrive do not label the logical stores the same. Below you can see a comparison table of the common stores and their names both in the MMC and the Cert PSDrive.

Selecting Certificates

When you are working with certificates you will need a way to filter and select certificates to perform specific operations against. Most of the time you will filter and select certificates based on the value of a specific extension.

For the following examples you need to start by listing all installed certificates in the root CA store.

The returned objects will be certificate objects you can use in the following examples.

Common extensions are already available as properties of the certificate objects. In the below example you are using Get-Member to list all the properties of the returned objects.

As you can see in Figure 9, some of these extensions, like Issuer, are helpful for finding the certificate you are looking for. Extensions supply information about the certificate, such as who it is issued to, what it can be used for, and any restrictions on it.

In more complex use cases you will want to find certificates by other extensions, like the certificate template used. The difficulty is the values for these extensions return as an array of integers. These integers correspond to ASN.1 encoded content.

The existing ScriptProperties available on the object show examples for interfacing with these. In the below command you will pull the Key Usages manually to see this relationship.

The new piece we introduce in the above command is the format method, which performs the ASN.1 decoding. You pass it a boolean value (e.g. $true) above to identify whether we want the returned object to be single-line or multi-line.

You will use the Thumbprint value from the certificate in Figure 7 in the below command. The Thumbprint value is set as a PowerShell variable and used to select the specific certificate in the below commands.

Creating Self-Signed Certificates with PowerShell

PowerShell can create self-signed certificates using the New-SelfSignedCertificate cmdlet. Self-signed certificates are useful for testing as they allow you to generate a public and private key pair without the use of a CA.

Let’s now create a self-signed certificate in the Current User and the Local Machine stores to use in examples for the next steps.

Windows Embedded Standard 7 Serial Number

In the example below, PowerShell is generating a public and private key pair, a self-signed certificate, and installing them all into the appropriate certificate stores.

Using self-signed certificates for production services is not encouraged as all the trust-based mechanisms do not exist.

Importing/Exporting Certificates

Public key cryptography is fundamentally based on the public key being widely accessible. Given this tenement you need standard ways to effectively share certificates. Equally as important is security of your private keys. Storing private keys in inaccessible media, or with disaster recovery materials is a common practice for certain private keys.

Both of these require ways to store these cryptographic objects in standard formats. Exporting provides the functions to perform storing of these objects and ensure they use widely accepted standard file formats. Importing allows you to bring the cryptographic objects into Windows operating systems.

Using the Windows Certificate Manager (certmgr.msc)

Exporting certificates from the MMC is relatively straight forward. To export a certificate without a private key, click on the certificate in the MMC, click on the All Tasks menu and then on Export.

During the export, you will be asked for a file format as shown below. The most common options are DER or Base-64 encoded.

Exporting Private Keys

To export a certificate with an associated private key, you’ll have to meet two criteria; the logged-in account must have permission to the private key (for computer certificates only) and the private key needs to be marked as exportable.

To verify the permissions for a local computer’s private keys, you can select a certificate with a private key, choose All Tasks, and Manage Private Keys from within the Certificates MMC. The dialog box that opens shows the access control entries for the private keys.

When those two or three prerequisites are met you can select a certificate, click on All Tasks and then on Export just like you would with a certificate with only a public key. When exported, you should now have option to select Yes, export the private key as shown below.

When you export a private key in Windows you can only save the file as a PFX. These file types and encoding formats are detailed at length in this post.

For the remaining settings shown in the export wizard, you can use the defaults. The below table is a quick rundown of each.

Importing Certificates

The import function is the same for all supported certificate file types. The only difference is if the file includes a private key you can “Mark this key as exportable”, which you will read more on below. Windows will leverage the Certificate Import Wizard.

When you use the Certificate Import Wizard for a PFX you will need to supply the password used to encrypt the private key. Here is another recap of the import options.

PowerShell code signing certificates are a good use case for strong private key protection.

Automatic placement of certificates can be something of which to be cautious. You will likely have the best results manually selecting the certificate store.

Using PowerShell

Now, with PowerShell export one of the self-signed certificates you created earlier. In the example the Current User is used, but you can use either.

Below, you are selecting a certificate in the Current User Personal logical store that was self-signed, meaning where the issuer matches the subject.

Now that you selected a certificate, you can use the Export-Certificate command to save a DER encoded file using the command below.

Now lets look at exporting the private key as well. Below you are verifying that the certificate you selected has a private key, if this does not return true, then the Get-Item command likely selected the wrong certificate.

Below you will set a password to use for encrypting the private key. Then export the selected certificate into a PFX file and use the password you entered earlier to encrypt the file.

Similarly to exporting, there are two commands. One command for importing certificates and one for importing PFX files.

Below the Import-Certificate command imports the DER encoded file that you exported earlier to the Current User’s Personal store.

Let’s say you want to install that certificate’s private key too.

Keep in mind that the password needs to be a Secure String. As well, if you are importing to the Local Machine store (e.g. Cert:LocalMachine) you will need to run the command from an elevated Administrator prompt.

In the above example, you also use the Exportable parameter with the command, marking the private key as exportable in the future. The default is to not be exportable. Exportable private keys are another security consideration, and deserves further focus on how you secure them.

Windows Embedded Standard 7 Serial Key

There are also many other things to do with certificates in Windows so you should explore more.

Removing Certificates with PowerShell

When removing certificates you need to keep in mind there is no Recycle Bin. Once you delete a certificate, it’s gone. This means it is critical to confirm you are deleting the correct certificate by validating a unique identifier, like the Serial Number or Thumbprint extension value.

Similarly to above, in the below command we select a self-signed certificate from the Current User’s Personal store.

Below you can see the Thumbprint, Serial Number, and Subject properties for the selected certificate to ensure it is the certificate you intend to select.

Verify you have selected the correct certificate you intend to delete.

Windows Embedded Standard 7 License Key

The below command removes all selected certificate objects, please use with caution. By passing the $certificate object through the pipeline to the Remove-Item cmdlet in the below command, you will delete all certificate content without any validation prompts.
