    Optiplex 7060 pulling no IP

    Worked like a charm! Thank you!

    Optiplex 7060 pulling no IP

    Just need to create your boot media with the platform pack for this machine selected in the Media Wizard. This will add the network driver to the boot environment.
  4. Hello! I'm trying to Image a Dell OptiPlex 7060 and when ever I boot into the bootable USB stick the PC doesn't pull and IP at all therefore not allowing me to get into our domain here at work. Any ideas what could be causing this? I'm messed around in the BIOS settings to see if it may be that but nothing seems to be working. We have the platform packs needed and if we create a bootable USB with just the image we need it images fine with no driver issues or anything after the image completes. Any ideas what may be causing this?

    Application Packs

    Ok. I have been able to get this working with custom software BUT I want to be able to get Office 2010 or 16 installed this way. When doing so, the files copy and the Bootstrap program runs but nothing installs. I checked the logs and this is what I am seeing: Can anyone help me with this error? What arguments do I need to put into this for it to work?

    Timers in SmartDeploy

    Timers in SmartDeploy

    Question: I haven't noticed this in the recent build but I am curious if this is going to be implemented at all...but accurate timers. I know Windows has historically had in-accurate timers for anything (downloading, deleting, moving, etc) but this has improved over time. However, I wish that when performing tasks in SmartDeploy that there would be a timer indicating how much longer (ETA) for the task to complete. I see this in the imaging screen but it is inaccurate because it only encompasses the imaging part but negates the platform pack and post imaging tasks. It would be nice to have a timer when performing the following: 1. Importing a reference machine 2. Creating an image 3. Creating a deployment pack Is this something that could be implemented? Thanks, Aaron
  9. The documentation regarding group policy needs to be updated. You will need to generate a new MSI via the SmartDeploy console, under Tools - > Generate Client SetupIt won't require a transform file with that MSI.

    Romulo; You can place as many images on your USB drive as you can fit. When you create your Offline Media, whichever Image you have set in your Answer File will be copied to the USB drive by the wizard. You can then use File Explorer to copy additional images to the \z\ folder, and then interrupt the unattended deployment, and use the Deploy wizard to select the alternate image you want to deploy. Alternatively, you can create media without an Answer File altogether and manually step through the Deploy Wizard, selecting whichever image you want to deploy that you've copied to your USB drive.

    Placing application packs on a USB would be a must. As for my situation, I will have to create two images, one with Office and one without. That kind defeats the idea of Gold Image. With that said, can I save\capture two differen images to the USB drive? It would be one with Office and one without and how to I deploy/select the image to be installed?

    Network and Mass Storage Driver Warning

    Nevermind, I just rebuilt the deployment package and it worked the 2nd time.
  13. Before I deploy to my Lenovo T70 (Windows 10 x64) I'm receiving the following: The selected Deployment package does not appear to have network and mass storage support for all the selected devices. Please verify that the corresponding Platform Packs were selected when creating your deployment package. I've definitely chosen the T470 Windows 10 Platform Pack when building my deployment package. Not sure if I should or can proceed ignoring the warning.
  14. I have the MSI file, just not the MST file. Which is what it's asking for.
  15. In the Tools workspace of the console there’s a tile for Generate Client Setup. You’ll specify your console host info and then save the MSI file that you’re looking for.
  16. Hey Guys, Thanks for the help! I'm reading this SDE User Guide install manual on how to install via GPO. There's a reference on page 55 to a SDEClientSetup.mst file that I cannot for the life of me find out where it is or how to create it. Can someone please point me in the right direction? Seems like an error, omission or typo in the manual. Thanks!

    Application packages

    Placing application packs on USB is something I'll let the team know about. I could see it being useful in some scenarios. Currently, it's just one application pack at a time, but it's another item we can look into. It's still beta right now but we are excited to expand more with application pack capabilities!

    Application packages

    Is there a way to deploy multiple packages? Say I have a Group A. And Group A should get x1, x2, x3 packages. Is that possible or is this limited to just 1 application at a time?

    Application packages

    Currently the application packs can only be pushed via the console and not copied to a USB.

    Application packages

    My question is how do I add the application pack to media during the media creation wizard? We have the option to select and add platform pack but I don't see an opton to add the application pack.

    Application packages

    On paper, it should work out, but it's something we haven't tested fully but understand it's going to be a popular pack. Application Packages are still in beta. You could test and then post your results.
  23. In my organization, by default, desktops won't have office installed unless is required. Laptops always have office installed. What I would like to do is to have one Gold image, no office installed and using the application package load office if the pc being imaged is a laptop. Is it possible? I have built an Office application pack and created a filter that will check if the computer is laptop ( Haven't tested yet). Also my office install is customized, so I added the parameters to the run command to use my MSP.

    Application Packs

    Looking at the Application Packs folder, the file sizes are huge. It's not just a configuration file, so it also includes the app itself. So I don't think it's referring to an actual path. I think it's just SD's syntax. This is my best guestimation.

    Application Packs (Beta)

    @Long@Foley I replied on my topic to you but you can edit their packs. Open Chrome and Firefox to get an idea of how to create yours.

    Application Packs (Beta)

    Has anyone who has successfully been able to get this to work document any basic steps? I wish we could edit/view the pre-made app packs to get a good idea.

    Application Packs

    @Long@Foley You need to click on File, then New and then Save it. Once this is done, then you can add your files and your commands. (They are working on documentation for this feature, fyi)

    Application Packs

    In relation to this topic, we are having a problem using this feature. When I click to add, all of the fields are grayed out. What do I need to do to make this functionality work?
