MDT 2013: Custom Property RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey All - 

    So I've created a new pane with MDT Wizard, and all that works great. However, what's I'm struggling with is getting the SkipPane Property to work correctly. 

    I've created a pane that I want to show based on the model of the PC that is being loaded. My cs.ini looks like

    [Settings]
    Priority=Default, Model, TasksequenceID
    Properties=MyCustomProperty,SkipWarningPane,Environment
    
    [Default]
    OSInstall=Y
    SkipCapture=YES
    SkipAdminPassword=YES
    SkipComputerBackup=YES
    SkipBitLocker=YES
    JoinWorkgroup=OFFNET
    USMTOfflineMigration=FALSE
    UserLocale=en-us
    UILanguage=en-us
    KeyboardLocale=0409:00000409
    SkipSummary=YES
    TimeZoneName=Central Standard Time
    SkipUserData=YES
    SkipTimeZone=NO
    SkipLocale=YES
    SkipProductKey=YES
    ;MandatoryApplications001={da2b9efd-20a4-4467-aa39-07ef237a8f17}
    FinishAction=Reboot
    SkipProductKey=YES
    SkipFinalSummary=YES
    SkipWarningPane=NO
    
    
    
    [2]
    MandatoryApplications001={da2b9efd-20a4-4467-aa39-07ef237a8f17}
    DriverGroup001=windows7\x64\%Model%
    DriverSelectionProfile=Nothing
    
    [3]
    MandatoryApplications001=
    SkipProductKey=YES
    SkipLocaleSelection=YES
    SkipTimeZone=Yes
    SkipComputerName=Yes
    SkipDomainMemberhip=Yes
    FinishAction=
    
    [4]
    MandatoryApplications001={da2b9efd-20a4-4467-aa39-07ef237a8f17}
    DriverGroup001=windows7\x86\%Model%
    DriverSelectionProfile=Nothing
    
    [VirtualBox]
    SkipProductKey=NO
    
    [Precision Workstation T3500]
    SkipWarningPane=YES
    
    [Optiplex 9010]
    SkipWarningPane=YES
    
    [Latitude E6530]
    SkipWarningPane=YES

    When I run MDT, I can see it processing the Latitude E6530 Section, but it never "Flips the switch" to YES..

  • In your Priority you have Default first and since it has a defined value for your "SkipWarningPane" property, that one will be processed and the other sections will not be used.

  • In the task sequence change it to 'and process rules' for the customsettings.ini

  • I think that setting would be for after the wizard panes - when the actual task sequence kicks off. This would be earlier than that.  Right when ZTIGather runs after it connects to the DEPLOYROOT.

  • Thanks Dan - 

    Seeing your answer lead me to the epiphany that I didn't need to set that property in the Default Section as the Pane is queued from that property have any value other than "YES"..

    Thanks for the help!
