Identifying Components to Deploy Choosing a Deployment Mechanism Preparing Source Components for Deployment Customizing Components You Deploy Creating Deployments Transferring Files Validating Deployments

When you create a full or patch deployment, the TestStand Deployment Utility completes the following tasks:

  • Analyzes the test system to generate a list of source files and dependencies.
  • Creates a deployable image by copying the list of files generated during analysis to a directory hierarchy under a single root directory.
  • (Optional) Builds an installer that contains all the files from the deployable image and installers for National Instruments drivers and other third-party components.

You can create a patch deployment at any point after the full deployment creation process. When you change to patch deployment mode, options in the deployment utility might change as well.

Note Note  You must save the TestStand deployment specification file (.tsd) and the installer for the full deployment to create a patch deployment and installer.
