As a SCCM administrator you are probably fully aware that you have a lot of power available to you when carrying out deployments using task sequences. But you can add even more options to SCCM task sequences by adding Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT) integration.

MDT Package Creation

The easiest way to create the MDT package is after you have integrated MDT into your SCCM. Go ahead and right click on your Task Sequences and select Create MDT Task Sequence.

A wizard will appear (normal Microsoft one, not Gandalf!) and you can run through the steps and just create any old task sequence – you can delete the task sequence after. Part of creating the MDT task sequence is to create the MDT package if you have not already done so.

Once complete, the MDT package then needs to be deployed and you should then be able to use it within your other task sequences under the MDT tree:
