WDS [Windows Deployment Services] – Move RemoteInstall To New Location

In my last post I had to fix the backup by moving the WDS RemoteInstall Directory from the originating disk to a new location of my liking. The solution is actually rather simple.

Run a Command Prompt or PowerShell as administrator and follow the next steps:

  1. Command: WDSUTIL /uninitialize-server
  2. Move the RemoteInstall directory to the new location
  3. Command: WDSUTIL /Initialize-Server /RemInst:NewDriveLocation:\RemoteInstall (example: WDSUTIL /Initialize-Server /RemInst:D:\RemoteInstall)

That’s all. WDS RemoteInstall has moved.
