0.10.6 Client breaking Sysprep


  • Testers

    Fellas,
    This was a rough morning. I went to Image a lab before school with Git 7645 (can’t update at the moment, installation fails, but that’s another thread) with client 0.10.6. The first Dell Optiplex 5040 imaged flawlessly. However, as the others returned from imaging into sysprep, one by one they failed right after “Installing devices” hit 100%. All of the rest failed. I am now downgrading the client to 0.10.4 because that one was more stable it seems. I know the unattend fix, but the downgrade is quicker. I can post more details later, but I wanted to report this issue.

    @Jbob Thanks a million! Now I sat down and made the described changes from the wiki and it works flawlessly.

    @Jbob I apologize, I was not up to speed on that practice. Can you post a link to the specific Wiki article please?

    The sysprep section in the wiki is needed for all client versions, even the legacy, and future ones.

    @Jbob Is this the permanent fix for all future clients? I had to make a snap decision this morning since I didn’t have time to edit my unattend file. I ended up going to 0.10.5 to stay semi-current. I had client updater enabled so they did go to 0.10.6 after sysprep. I suppose this is also a band-aid fix since they are waiting to upgrade to 10.6. Admittedly I should have checked the wiki, but again, time was a factor.

    This happens because 0.10.6 is faster. I spent a lot of time optimizing the loading process of the client. While 0.10.4 may work, let me reiterate @Wayne-Workman who nailed it on the head: you’re playing with fire here. If you ever have a machine that is slightly slower and sysprep takes just a little bit longer you will have the exact same issue. If you sysprep you must disable the service and enable it in setupcomplete. The wiki section on using the client with sysprep was made for a reason.
