Post-install snapin failed



  • Hi,
    we run two batch scripts after deployment of windows OS.
    First one works great, just a copy of a file to EFI partition:

    @ECHO ON
    
    mountvol s: /s
    s:
    cd EFI/grub2win
    
    copy c:\grub\linux\grub.cfg s:\EFI\grub2win
    
    mountvol s: /d
    
    

    second one is always with error (sometimes I see it with exit code -1 sometimes with 1)
    We use bcdedit to import a store with list of bootloaders. When I run it locally like an Admin it works great.
    The quesiton is how to run this snapin with Admin privilege? I think this is the problem.

    @ECHO ON
    bcdedit /import  C:\Grub\Linux\file_bcd
    

    the imported file is saved in the image in C:\Grub\Linux\file_bcd



  • I found the smart installer for 11.19 :) Now it works on http. We will try to activate https on our server and activate https on the client



  • @Sebastian-Roth I didnt answer because now we have a problem with the client on the cloned host and cannot check the package works or not. The problem started few days ago ONLY with new cloned hosts. On all new cloned hosts we have the same error message in the fog.log file.

    I wanted also to try to upgrade to 11.18 the client to see maybe this will solve the problem but honestly I couldn’t find how to upgrade the client to 11.18 . I downloaded the file from your official page release, uncompressed and nothing. Don’t know which file to pick up and how to upgrade the client to all hosts



  • @Sebastian-Roth I’ll try in few minutes

    @marted Have you used PsExec as mentioned below to test as SYSTEM account?



  • @Sebastian-Roth, I still have some problems with executing a batch command like admin in a script.
    When I execute locally the command it works very well but in snapin it doesn’t work. Even we tried to make an EMCO package with admin rights. Now we dont see any error codes and it says installed but the file is not imported.
    Very simple command but still not working in snapin

    @ECHO ON
    bcdedit /import  C:\Grub\Linux\file_bcd

    @marted Just from the top if my head, I think snapins are executed in order by names. So name the one you want to run first 01_snapinname and the one later 02_snapinname.



  • @Sebastian-Roth how to specify which snapin run first and which second. What I did I put on the second one I want to be executed, a timeout of 60 sec. Is there a different way to say which script run first and which second?


  • Developer

    @marted The fog-client software runs as SYSTEM account. Probably best to try manually using Sysinternal PsExec:

    C:\Windows\system32>whoami
    ...\Administrator
    C:\Windows\system32>PsExec.exe -S cmd.exe
    ...
    C:\Windows\system32>whoami
    NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM
    
    C:\Windows\system32>bcdedit ...
    ...
