$OEM$ Alternative In MDT 2012 U1

So the $OEM$ technique of copying data from a Deployment Share to a machine being deployed is no more.

As an alternative simply use an XCOPY command in your Task Sequence as per the example below (Use a ‘Run Command Line’ step) for the CMTrace tool:

xcopy.exe "%deployroot%\Custom\CMTrace.exe" "C:\Windows\System32" /Q /H /E /I /Y
  • /Q – Does not display file names while copying.
  • /H – Copies hidden and system files also.
  • /E – Copies directories and subdirectories, including empty ones. Same as /S /E. May be used to modify /T.
  • /I – If destination does not exist and copying more than one file, assumes that destination must be a directory.
  • /Y – Suppresses prompting to confirm you want to overwrite an existing destination file.
