MDT Task Seq capture is stuck on Processing Rules RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All,

    As recommended by a lot of SCCM experts I am creating a Win 8.1 reference image using MDT 2013. When I boot my reference VM using the MDT Build Lab x64.iso it gets stuck at "Processing Rules" as pictured below:

    This is what my Rules look like:

    [Settings]
    Priority=Default

    [Default]
    _SMSTSORGNAME=Death Star Enterprises
    UserDataLocation=NONE
    DoCapture=YES
    OSInstall=Y
    AdminPassword=P@ssw0rd
    TimeZoneName=Central Standard Time
    JoinWorkgroup=WORKGROUP
    HideShell=YES
    FinishAction=SHUTDOWN
    DoNotCreateExtraPartition=YES
    WSUSServer=http://hv-host2.wolf.local:8530
    ApplyGPOPack=NO
    SLSHARE=\\HV-Host2\Logs$

    SkipAdminPassword=YES
    SkipProductKey=YES
    SkipComputerName=YES
    SkipDomainMembership=YES
    SkipUserData=YES
    SkipLocaleSelection=YES
    SkipTaskSequence=NO
    SkipTimeZone=YES
    SkipApplications=YES
    SkipBitLocker=YES
    SkipSummary=YES
    SkipRoles=YES
    SkipCapture=NO
    SkipFinalSummary=YES

    And in the Bootstrap.ini file this is how I have it configured

    [Settings]
    Priority=Default

    [Default]
    DeployRoot=\\HV-Host\MDTBuildLab$
    UserDomain=Wolf
    UserID=MDT_BA
    UserPassword=P@ssw0rd

    SkipBDDWelcome=YES

  • Could you post ZTIGather.log?

  • Logs or it didn't happen :)  Kidding aside this doesn't help without logs. 

    Most important details are logs. If you are unsure how to post logs or where to find them then reference https://keithga.wordpress.com/2014/10/24/video-mdt-2013-log-files-basics-bdd-log-and-smsts-log/

  • There is nothing out of the ordinary with respect to the cs.ini file.

    1. If you upgraded your MDT share from a previous version of MDT, it could cause problems.

    2. If your image uses any 3rd party encryption programs, it could slow down the processing.

    Otherwise, it would be helpful to know if there are any errors, if you can copy the bdd.log file to a public share and post a link here.
