User Share Webinar: Build Windows Golden Images for EUC Workloads via Packer in 10 Mins!


Build Windows Golden Images for EUC Workloads via Packer in 10 Mins!

Thursday, September 24
1:00 - 2:00 PM ET


Building windows 10 / server 201x images for cloning has the following challenges:

• Human-error by hand cranking settings at the virtual shell level
• Human-error by hand cranking settings post Windows-build
• The amount of time it takes to apply Windows updates once the base build is done
• Time that's lost while waiting for steps 1/2/3 to complete

The solution I've found for the above challenges are based on the open-source tool Packer combined with Windows autounattend.xml answer files. Join me on September 24th to see how you can implement this for yourself.
