Installing .NET Framework 3.5 with MDT 2013 the simple way

In my case I need to automate the installation of .NET 3.5 within a MDT 2013 build and capture task sequence for Windows 8.1

In the State restore add a step to set the WindowsSource Path
The Windows Source will be located within the Operating Systems folder on your Deployment Share

  1. Add a Set Task Sequence Variable step
    1. Type Task Sequence Variable: WindowsSource
    2. Type Value for your source files: %deployroot%\Operating Systems\Windows 8.1 x64 Enterprise VL\Sources\SXS

Set Task Sequence Varable

  1. Add a Install Roles and Features step
    1. Select your Operating System within the step
    2. Mark .NEt Framework 3.5 (Includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0)

InstallRoles step MDT

Is it that simple? Yes!

NOTE: If you want to use a Run Command Line to install it, you could use something like this: DISM.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /All /Source:”%deployroot%\Operating Systems\Windows 8.1 x64 Enterprise VL\Sources\SXS” /LimitAccess

Installing UniFi controller in Debian 7 (wheezy)

Installing UniFi controller in Debian

1. Edit /etc/apt/sources.list
# Ubiquiti UniFi updates
deb debian ubiquiti

2. Add GPG keys
sudo apt-key adv –keyserver –recv C0A52C50
sudo apt-key adv –keyserver –recv 7F0CEB10

3. Run the following commands
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install unifi

It should now start and be running at https://:8443/


You might have to modify the path in for java in /etc/init.d/unifi                                                I had to change this from JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk to  JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk-amd64

UniFi Controller default TCP ports:

unifi.shutdown.port=8081 (for management purpose)
unifi.http.port=8080 (device inform)
unifi.https.port=8443 (controller UI / API)
portal.http.port=8880 (portal redirect port for HTTP)
portal.https.port=8843 (portal redirect port for HTTPs)
unifi.db.port=27117 (local-bound port for DB server)

And UDP port 3478.

I’ve been running the mFi controller on a Windows server, but wanted to move it to my Debian box – The install for Windows is quite simple, click and run – but for Debian a few more steps is required, so here is what I did to get it up and running

1. Edit /etc/apt/sources.list

deb debian ubiquiti

2. add GPG Key
