LTIsysprep.wsf - Shuts down a reference machine RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    Just wanted to see if anyone else has experienced an issue whereby the LTIsysprep.wsf, using the default SYSPREP command actually shuts a reference machine down when running through a "Sysprep and Capture" Task Sequence.

    I have noticed that the default SYSPREP command is "sysprep.exe /quiet /generalize /oobe /shutdown". When using VMs (Generation 1 or 2) on Hyper-V as reference machines this command completes successfully and then shuts the VM down. Given the parameters above I would expect this, but this breaks the Task Sequence and leaves the reference machine in limbo.

    If we change the default command to "sysprep.exe /quiet /generalize /oobe /quit" the SYSPREP works as expected and the Task Sequence continues running the "Apply Windows PE (BCD)" and "Restart Computer" steps. The machine restarts and captures a WIM. If I use the default command I never get a captured WIM.

    As far as I can tell the command is wrong, or I am missing something more fundamental. I have checks the LTIApply, BDD and LTIsysprep logs files and there are no issues. Basic stuff like DOCapture=YES and the Backup location are in place so I have covered what I think are the basics.

    Any advice would be great.
