Talk:Windows Deployment Services
|WikiProject Computing||(Rated Stub-class)|
Is it time to start removing the Server 2003, XP, Vista references as they're out of service and I would seriously hope people aren't now deploying it freshly this way - and if they are, they don't need Wikipedia telling them this is something they can do? -Dev
old talk stuff
Hi Team, I am an IT guy that likes to write how to articles. I am wondering why Wikipedia won't accept my link--http://www.infotechguyz.com/server2008/wds.html ? I am not trying to spam or trying to sell anything nor make any money from my website.
- I reverted your link because it's to a website named http://www.infotechguyz.com/ and your account name is InfotechGuyz. It looks like a conflict of interests where you're promoting your own website. Whether or not you make money doesn't matter. Wikipedia is not a repository of links. If you want a link to a website you're associated with on a article, you bear the burden of proof in showing the community why it's a good add, and why it's such a good add we should have it even though you have a conflict of interests as the content's creator. You have an uphill battle in proving that to us because of the WP:COI issues. It looks like the kind of self-promotion of links that happens all the time here. If we let everyone who wanted to post thier own link do so, because it was a decent page and relevant enough, we'd have nothing but links for the whole site. You have to really show us why the link should be here, and you should do it on the talk page here. Another editor should feel strongly enough about your link to add it to the article. If you add it, it goes back to the self-promotion issue, and folks think you're running afoul of WP:NOTADVERTISING. It doesn't matter that the site's free. Lots of people have lots of reasons to promote their free sites. That doesn't make it any less self-promotion. AubreyEllenShomo (talk) 07:29, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
Note: this page is inaccurate at least in that wds can be used in legacy mode to push xp with automation, install scripts, etc.
can anyone tell me the exact process to use windows deployment service for the deployment of windows xp service pack 2. I am using windows server 2003 enterprise edition with service pack 2. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Satzaa (talk • contribs) 03:14, 1 October 2009 (UTC)
