Failed Deployment of Image
I created an image with all the software and settings I wanted then created a capture task which runs fine. However when going to deploy the image I keep getting errors about being able to parse the unattend.xml file. Right now I'm getting this specific message:
"Windows could not parse or process the unattend answer file for pass [specialize]. The setting specified in the answer file cannot be applied. The error was detected while processing settings for component [Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup]"
This is using the default unattend.xml that Altiris creates/searches for. I do notice that on the stock image I created there is an unattend.xml file in the C:\Windows\Panther\ directory. Do I need to edit this?
I do have the deployanywhere check box checked because I manually added drivers to the database in deploymen solutions. What could be causing this error in the unattend.xml file? What unattend.xml file is it parsing - one created by altiris ? If so at what point does altiris add this file - is it during the prepare image for capture stage in the capture task?
