WDS – Changing the default remote installation folder

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Two options:

1) Remove your original WDS Server, readd and configure WDS Server within the Windows Deployment Service console.


2) From a command prompt type the below

wdsutil /Uninitialize-Server

Press enter

wdsutil /Initialize-Server /REMINST:”E:\RemoteInstall” (Amend path as required)

Press enter

If you receive the below error:

“The Filename, Directory Name, or Volume Label Syntax is Incorrect”

Its probably due to the drive your moving to is not shared for admin purposes. For example: If you type net share into a command prompt you will find that the C drive is shared but the drive
you are moving to is not.

Hope this helps
