Hi, I need some help, not sure if i doing this the best way so any suggestions welcome. I need to use MDT

(I can do this in SCCM in a matter of seconds but cant find out how to do this in MDT)

I need to create a TS that Deploys Server 2016 in 2 Environments (Hyper-V and vCenter) this bit easy. The hard bit is i need to set different Local Admin passwords depending on if its Hyper-V or vCenter. I dont want to do this as Clear Txt so using the Unattend answer file i think would be best bet, but in MDT you dont get to select multiple files like u can in SCCM.

Any suggestions how i can do this?

Thanks
Dave

    Hi anonymous user-5722,

    Based on my experience, it may be hard to create one TS in 2 Environments in MDT, we could use two task sequences with unattend answer files to solve this issue.

    About how to find local administrator password set in MDT, please refer to this article:
