I have set up a dev environment at 8.8 and am attempting to test the processes we currently have in our prod environment at 8.6. I recreated a WIM-based Windows 2012R2 system package and am using the same base WIM file copied over to the DEV environment's provisioning server. When I attempt to run a provision job I am getting an error. When I compare the logs to the job run in our 8.6 environment I am seeing an additional step in the 8.8 environment to do this after the WIM image has been applied :
X:\Windows\system32>Dism /image:C: /apply-unattend:C:\Windows\Panther\Unattend\Unattend.xml /scratchdir:C:\BLProv\scratch
This is failing with this error:
Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
An error occurred while attempting to start the servicing process for the image located at C:\.
For more information, review the log file.
The DISM log file can be found at X:\Windows\Logs\DISM\dism.log
Is there something I have missed in attempting to duplicate the System Package Type and System Package in the 8.8 environment or is this something that has changed since 8.6? Our builds work fine in 8.6 without this additional step in the provisioning process so is there just a checkbox I am missing somewhere that makes the provision job do this?
Still having this problem so I am now trying to create a WinPE5 PXE image ( i had re-used the WinPE4 image we use in prod previously ). Now I am running into an issue where the WinPE5 image created with the 'Provisioning Image Creation' wizard not recognizing the 'cscript' ineterpreter. Has anyone successfully created a new WinPE5-based PXE image in BSA 8.8 ?
