Need to move the Microsoft Deployment Distribution (BDD) file location?

Recently, I needed to move the contents of the LAB deployment point in Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT) to a different location on the filesystem.

As it turns out, this was quite simple.

Edit the Deploy.xml located in the MDT installation directory, by default this is located in %PROGRAMFILES%\Microsoft Deployment Toolkit\Control.

Just find the node in the Deploy.xml file and replace the old path with the new one. Once complete, modify the "Distribution_Dir" registry value to reflect the new path;

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Deployment 4\
Value: Distribution_Dir
Type: REG_SZ
Data: [NewDistributionDirectoryPath]
