MDT 2012 - Process Rules after some Wizard Input

    Question

  • I have some rules that are dependant on wizard input. The problem is that they are getting processed before the input is taken by the wizard. Is there a way to have some rules processed after the input is received, or have all of the rules reprocessed?

  • Have you looked at http://www.deployvista.com/home/tabid/36/entryid/139/language/en-us/default.aspx

    This might not help in every case, but if you could explain more - there could be a different way.

  • I have a custom wizard screen that takes in computerLocation, and computerDepartment. I have seperate TaskSequences that install a different custom WIM file. I want the TaskSequences to be chosen based on department first, then I also have some settings by location, and if not Billing or Customer Support, I want teh TS chose by Desktop, Laptop, or VM.  Note, that my wizard only asks for credentials to the share, ComputerLocation, and CmputerDepartement, and tha is all. Here is what I have in my customsettings.ini.

    [Settings]

  • I just re-run ztigather.wsf for my custom wizard screens.

  • When I do that, it processes the settings like it should. However, after it is done processing settings the system reboots. It does not go to a task sequence.
