Step 1: Create a Prestaged Content File
1. In the Configuration Manager console, click Software Library.
2. In the Software Library workspace, select one of the following steps for the type of content that you want to prestage:
o Applications: Expand Application Management, click Applications, and then select the applications that you want to prestage.
o Packages: Expand Application Management, click Packages, and then select the packages that you want to prestage.
o Driver Packages: Expand Operating Systems, click Driver Packages, and then select the driver packages that you want to prestage.
o Operating System Images: Expand Operating Systems, click Operating System Images, and then select the operating system images that you want to prestage.
o Operating System Installers: Expand Operating Systems, click Operating System Installers, and then select the operating system installers that you want to prestage.
o Boot Images: Expand Operating Systems, click Boot Images, and then select the boot images that you want to prestage.
o Task Sequences: Expand Operating Systems, click Task Sequences, and then select the task sequence that you want to prestage.
3. On the Home tab, in the Deployment group, click Create Prestage Content File. The Create Prestaged Content File Wizard opens.
Note
For Applications: On the Home tab, in the Application group, click Create Prestaged Content File.
For Packages: On the Home tab, in the <PackageName> group, click Create Prestaged Content File.
4. On the General page, click Browse, choose the location for the prestaged content file, specify a name for the file, and then click Save. You use this prestaged content file on primary site servers, secondary site servers, or distribution points to import the content and metadata.
5. For applications, select Export all dependencies to have Configuration Manager detect and add the dependencies associated with the application to the prestaged content file. By default, this setting is selected.
6. In Administrator comments, enter optional comments about the prestaged content file, and then click Next.
7. On the Content page, verify that the content listed is the content that you want to add to the prestaged content file, and then click Next.
8. On the Content Locations page, specify the distribution points from which to retrieve the content files for the prestaged content file. You can select more than one distribution point to retrieve the content. The distribution points are listed in the Content locations section. The Content column displays how many of the selected packages or applications are available on each distribution point. Configuration Manager starts with the first distribution point in the list to retrieve the selected content, and then moves down the list in order to retrieve the remaining content required for the prestaged content file. Click Move Up or Move Down to change the priority order of the distribution points. When the distribution points in the list do not contain all of the selected content, you must add distribution points to the list that contain the content or exit the wizard, distribute the content to at least one distribution point, and then restart the wizard.
9. On the Summary page, confirm the details. You can go back to previous pages and make changes. Click Next to create the prestaged content file.
10. The Progress page displays the content that is being added to the prestaged content file.
11. On the Completion page, verify that the prestaged content file was created successfully, and then click Close.
