MDT Toolkit speed up during OSD

TGH Profile Image 512x512

I was recently given a tip on how to speed up the MDT Toolkit Package part when running the Operating System Deployments within my SCCM environment.

This is a simple yet effective change that slightly speeds things up if you have MDT integration enabled. The change is turning off a built in setting to delay the MDT toolkit from loading for 30 seconds. To do this, follow the below instructions:

Go into your MDT toolkit package source folder and in the Scripts folder locate the ZTISCCM.wsf file.

Then, using a tool like Notepad++ look for a line of code as per below:

 wscript.sleep 30000  

You should then delete that line or just comment it out of the code, then update your required distribution points and give it a try. It will knock out 30 seconds of delay for each part that you load your MDT Toolkit during OSD.

    This sleep doesn’t exist in the file in an MDT 2013 U2 toolkit package

      The post is 3 and a half years old so I think this was for v2010. Microsoft may have removed the sleep on the mdt package now.
