MDTFrontEnd - MDT 2010 Compatibility

I am missing the "Wizard Control" Category for MDT 2010. I can't see the option "Skip TaskSequence" at the "Wizard Control" category while editting Roles settings.

I also have several Roles already configured in MDT 2010. I can't see all settings available to edit/add.

Hi Bruno,

seems I missed that one. Thanks for the info. But you can easily add it yourself to the "Wizard Control" Category. See http://mdtwebfrontend.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=Edit%20Category for Details.

 

Regarding the missing Settings. I`ve seen this before if these settings contain a NULL value. The MDT Workbench and the current FrontEnd should actually always use an empty string instead of a NULL value. So wonder where this comes from.

Anyway the FrontEnd contains a quickfix for this problem. Just open the link http://YourWebServer/YourFrontEndDir/Admin/ReplaceNULLValues. This will update all NULL values with an empty string.

Thank you very much for your answer.
 
problem solved.
 
What do you think about put some sorting mechanism into the list pages? That will help a lot.
 
Another question: When I change a role name, does the MDT front end change it in the relationship in all computers?

Can I change the order of the new Settings added to an existing category? As you have suggested, I have added "SkipTaskSequence" and "SkipDestinationDisk" to "Wizard Control (MDT 2008)" Category. They appear after all other settings in this category. Is that possible to change the order and keep in sync with mdt workbench (same order)?
 
Shouldnt be created a Wizard Control (MDT 2010) or it is just unnecessary?

Sorting is some kind of "hidden" feature. Just click on the header on most of the tables and they should sort ascending on first, descending on second click. I just haven't had time yet to add any visual feedback ;-)

And yes, you can easily re-order existing settings. Just click on the Settings and then on the Categories Tab. There you will see a list of all categories. Just edit the one mentioned. The single settings can be re-order by just Dragging them to the new position. See http://myitforum.com/cs2/blogs/maikkoster/archive/2010/01/25/mdt-web-frontend-how-to-configure-what-a-user-can-see-and-edit.aspx for a more detailed explanation.
