FWSMUG | 11-20-2019 | November Webinar with Donna Ryan, Andreas Hammarskjold, and Phil Wilcock

Session 1: WIM Witch – Donna Ryan

Offline Image Servicing is a process that stream lines some of the image customization tasks regularly performed by administrators. The process saves time during imaging by incorporating customization directly to the Windows image, negating the need for additional Task Sequence steps. It also ensures systems are built fully complaint with their Windows updates.

WIM Witch, a GUI driven tool, performs most common servicing tasks. By leveraging a GUI, WIM Witch makes the servicing process easy to understand and perform. The presentation will cover all of WIM Witch’s features, including automating bulk updating tasks with command line functions.

Topics to be discussed:
Reasons to service an image
How to service with WIM Witch
Command line functionality for automation
How WIM Witch compares to other tools
Road map for WIM Witch
