So having got back from vacation, here is a quick update for the SCConfigMgr Download Automation Tool following on from feedback from the community.
One of the key comments that people had was if the tool could have the ability to save their settings for re-use. So in the latest 4.0.0 build I have included functions to both write out the applied settings after the initial use out to an XML file similar to the format below:
Upon each subsequent use, the XML file is read in when the tool loads and auto-populates fields with the values from the previous run.
The settings saved are as follows:
- Import Destination
- Download Type (BIOS/Drivers)
- Operating System
- Operating System Architecture
- Proxy Server Address
- Download Storage Locations
- Distribution Point(s)/Group(s)
- Binary Differential Compression Option
- All Clean Up Options
This should hopefully help you speed up the process of running the tool.
