DS 7.5 Path too long while importing Windows 8.1 sources
I have a CMS 7.5 migrated from 7.1. installed on D:\Altiris.
While trying to import the os files for Windows 8.1 x64 en-us I get a console error message "Error occured while uploading files".
A check in Altiris Log Viewer gives more explanation: "Failed to add file to package repository: The specified path, file name, or both are too long. The fully qualified file name must be less than 260 characters, and the directory name must be less than 248 characters."
Problem is, the original Windows 8.1 sources\sxs folder contains files with very long names and together with the package path they exceed the maximum length allowed.
I fixed it using a sources folder without sxs subfolder and copied it to the package via NSCAP share later.
Path Length Checker shows a lot of files too long in the 7.1 migrated os files. Migrated packages have brackets around their guid, fresh imported not.
Did somebody else experienced the same? I already remarked in the beta releases this might be an upcoming problem.
See screenshots attached.
