  • General discussion

  • Hi All,

    I am stuck in upgrading 2012 R2 server to 2016 server. As we have more than 1000+ server to upgrade i was working on to upgrade servers using unattended XML file. But still i am not able to upgrade as windows installation setup showing me EULA and image selection page. i am not getting any option to select that image in xml file.

    MY XML file is 

    <?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
    <unattend xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:unattend">
                <UpgradeData>
                    <Upgrade>true</Upgrade>
                    <WillShowUI>Never</WillShowUI>
                </UpgradeData>
                <UserData>
       <AcceptEula>true</AcceptEula>
       <WillShowUI>Never</WillShowUI> 
    </UserData>
    </unattend>
