MDT 2012 Update 1 Deployment loads CustomSettings.ini but does not apply them?? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have started using MDT 2012 Deployment in a production environment and all has been working OK. I have been installing from PXE and USB sticks on HP Desktops 6000 SFF and 6305's and also HP Laptops 6570b and various others.

    My problem is with a new deployment I have created for HP Elite 8100 tower PC's. I have all the settings in my CustomSettings.ini and when the computers boot the load up the selection screen OK then I get prompted to enter in my computer name and the domain settings are preconfigured (via CS.ini) and lastly I enter in the admin password. So far so good as it shows it is reading the customsettings.ini all OK. BUT once the deployment has completed the machince has not been added to the domain and also has not applied the admin password specified?

    It PC is OK on the network as I see a DHCP reservation for it and if I use PXE it starts and runs OK but just doesn not apply the domain details, admin password and locale settings defined in the CustomSettings.ini.

    Any pointers?

  • Can you post your customsettings.ini file so we can take a look at it? Also, did you make any changes to the unattend.xml file?

  • Also, if the device is having issues joining the domain, we'll need to look at C:\Windows\Debug\NetSetup.log.  This will tell us why DomainJoin failed and can help identify where the issue is.
