Deployment Server 6.9 automation task failure
We are in the process of a migration from Windows XP to Windows 7. I have a DS 6.9 script task to copy drivers after the ghost image is applied. This task is failing in many instances but succeeding in other instances. The task appears to fail before it starts and gives a "Status Code" of 4. When the task is successful it works perfectly.
I have tried applying both the image task and driver copy task in the same DS job and also as separate jobs. The effect is the same - both successes and failures.
This issue has never been a problem during an XP imaging / driver copy process. The XP image was only about 750 mg compared to the 5.5g size of the Windows 7 image so I am wondering if there is a timeout issue. The ghost image task runs successfully for both XP and Win7.
We have 100 meg connections to the desktop and bandwidth tests show 45% utilization during the process. There are no errors on the DS server.
Any help will be greatly appreciated!
Driver Copy Script:
REM Copy Dell Desktop - Win7x86 Drivers
REM Copies Cumulative Desktop drivers into the inf folder
if not exist "d:\windows\inf\x86" md "d:\windows\inf\x86"
xcopy /S /I \\nt18\express\Desktop\Windows7\Win7_Drivers\DellDesktopDrivers\x86" "d:\Windows\Inf\x86"
