Litetouch deployment failed, Return Code = -2147467259 0x80004005 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a 64-Bit Win7 wim file that I captured from a hyper v vm using MDT2013. When I apply the wim to a machine using a different deployment share I am getting the error "Litetouch deployment failed, Return Code = -2147467259  0x80004005". In the BDD log the error shows up right after my applications have finished installing. The logs say that the applications installed successfully and do not indicate any errors.

    However, if I deploy just the wim with no applications, I dont get the lite touch deployment failed error. So my problem seems to be that one of my applications is causing the error but the logs dont show which one. I wanted to see if there is an easier way to find the cause, rather than going through the deployment 15 times for each of my applications?

    Thank you.

  • I couldnt find a application guid that matches the error.....but I think I may have found the problem. I have three command line steps in the task sequence that come after the application installs. These steps set the kms server and activate windows and office. 

    cscript c:\windows\system32\slmgr.vbs /skms XXXXXXX

    cscript c:\windows\system32\slmgr.vbs /ato

    cscript.exe "c:\program files\Microsoft Office\Office14\ospp.vbs" /act

    I also saw someone ask me if an application is trying to reboot so I added a reboot=no to my mcafee vse installation. It looks like removing the kms/activation steps and adding a reboot=no to my Mcafee seems to have fixed my problem.

  • Just an update:

    I went back and added my commands to set the kms server and activate windows to my task sequence. This time I checked the "continue on error" box for each step and now its perfect.

    Windows activation works great and no errors after deployment.

    Thanks to everyone who helped.

  • Do you have an application that is rebooting the machine?

    Please post the relevant pieces of your BDD.log file.

  • Hi Nick,

    Here is the few lines of the BDD log indicating the failure. I just started two deployments side by side, one on a desktop and the other on a laptop and only the desktop deployment came back with the failure. It's weird because I have all of the same applications on both task sequences and in fact I have a couple extra broadband applications that only install on the laptops.

    From BDD:

  • Your logs say ZTIApplications error 0x80004005.  Can you post information from the ZTIApplications portion of the log?

  • I know it seems counterintuitive but, look at the individual apps and see what their return codes are.  You can get a failure code and still have InstalledApplicationsXXX = {SomeGuid} listed in the summary portion of the still show it as completed.  I think the reason those always get set is so it does not get stuck in a loop failing to install one application.
