This adds some basic information about the deployment to the registry under
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Deployment 4, including the OSD Package ID, the date the computer was deployed, and the type of deployment.
I want this information captured in the hardware inventory so I can easily find computers that haven't been refreshed in awhile. Since MDT includes a MOF file, capturing this in hardware inventory is fairly easy.
- In the ConfigMgr console, go to Administration -> Client Settings
- Edit the appropriate client settings and go to the Hardware Inventory tab
- Click Set Classes. On the window that pops up, click Add
- Connect to a computer that has already been deployed with an MDT task sequence.
After the next hardware scan cycle, you'll have a new
Microsoft_BDD_Infosection that contains the deployment timestamp and other useful information to report on.
