Use WipeDisk to decomission old computers. Stuck at 85% RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey,

    I created a Replace task Sequence and added Task Sequence variable WipeDisk=TRUE at the beginning. Been stuck at 85% for over 10 hours now. Can't find any errors at all in the logfiles.

    Running MDT 2013 Update 2 with ADK 1607.

  • Looking in bdd.log it is running command: cmd /c format C: /fs:ntfs /p:3 /Y

  • What is the Y switch for? Not seeing that in the TechNet article.

  • /Y will bypass the "Are You Sure Y/N" prompt.

  • Ah. Thanks! 

    Is this happening on all computers or just this one? Could it be a disk issue?

    I just use DBAN or DaRT to securely wipe drives after the fact.

  • You could try running the command in WinPE. I suspect this is external to MDT.

    Many questions such as where do I find logs and what logs are interesting are found in: MDT TechNet Forum - FAQ & Getting Started Guide Please take the time to read it. Also if you don't post logs your problem won't be easily solved.
