CustomSettings.ini Priority RRS feed

  • Question

  • We're using TaskSequencID based customsettings.ini to deploy different settings to each Task Sequence. It is my understanding the Priority= line controls the order in which the sections are run/applied and the majority of the variables are first-write wins, meaning once set they can't be overwritten. 

    With that said. If I had the below example, SkipCapture being the first write wins variable, it would be set under the TaskSequence001 section to YES, then [Default] would run and set it again, doing nothing (variable already set). End result would be SkipCapture=YES and the page is skipped. That's not what I'm seeing. Anything set in [Default] seems to win regardless so the only way I can get per task sequence settings to apply is NOT set them under [Default] but that results in having to constantly set every shared variable under each and every task sequence.

  • Your Logic is perfect but.... CustomSettings.ini is processed before you can select a task sequence in the wizard, so the section [TaskSequence001] is never red as the TaskSequenceID is empty at the time customsettings.ini is parced.

    What you can do :

    Save your exemple under another name in the MDT control folder, then edit the gather step in the Initialization section and add the aforementioned file, it should works!
