MDT 8443 -- 2016 Standard Reference Image Task Sequence Roles and Features Bug? RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I am having a problem when selecting "IIS Management Console" from the list in the Roles and Features step.   Everything looks good until I come back into the TS and that selection is no longer checked but instead "FTP Service"  has a checkbox next to it.    Excerpt below is from the TS.xml and as you can see it is placing the "Web-Ftp-Service" entry into the OSRoles variable section which is just plain wrong as well for that entry even.  Not sure what is going on.....

    If I try to manually put the proper entry into the OSRoleServices section it just gets deleted the next time the task sequence is opened.   Can anyone confirm that they experience this as well?

  • At the time I ended up fixing this by doing some sleight of hand with utilizing the Server 2012 Roles and features on my Server 2016 deployment.   However, I just wanted to come back here and follow up for posterity's sake after seeing the following release notes from version 8450:
