    Setting Mass Storage Drivers from BLCLI

      Hi,

       

      I'm trying to set the Mass Storage Drivers in a Windows system package using BLCLI. I'm running the commands:

       

      blcli_execute SystemPackage setMassStorageDriver "\"VMware SCSI Controller\""

      blcli_execute SystemPackage update

       

      When I look at the system package through the Server Automation Console, I can then see that the Mass Storage Driver field contains the value "VMware SCSI Controller" exactly as I expected.

       

      However, the unattend.txt entries are not updated as I would have hoped. If I manually, select the driver the unattend.txt gets updated with the following lines...

       

      [MassStorageDrivers]
      "VMware SCSI Controller" = "OEM"
      [OEMBootFiles]
      vmscsi.sys
      vmscsi.inf
      vmscsi.cat
      txtsetup.oem

       

      Did I find a bug? Can I have a cookie?

       

      Thanks - Lee

          Ah, don't worry... sorted it.

           

          You have to set the path to txtsetup.oem first with a bit of...

           

          blcli_execute SystemPackage setTxtsetupOEM "//datastore_server/path/to/where/the/drivers/live/\$OEM\$/TEXTMODE/txtsetup.oem"

           

          ...then run the setMassStorageDriver and then update and voila!

           

          Cheers

           

          Oh, btw, this was on version 8.0.00.359
