Sysprep & Capture issues - MDT



  • Per this link, I know that lots of people are just using the capture task sequence & the litetouch.vbs script to capture images:

    But I found this video... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L6Y0Lb7ARIs (FF to 6:05) which shows that MDT is capable of having a machine PXE boot to the task sequence without having to use the script.

    • I've made sure that the TS is enabled.
    • I've tried sysprepping the machine first (like how WDS-only environments require the machine sysprepped first... but since MDT uses the same engine as SCCM, it's not totally necessary).
    • I've updated my deployment share.
    • I've re-imported the boot image (not really necessary) into WDS and updated the deployment share again.
    • I've deleted and created a whole new task sequence and OS reference image from \sources.
    • I've made sure that "SkipCapture=NO" is a line entry in customsettings.ini

    What am I missing here?



  • So if I delete everything in my customsettings.ini, I can get it to the capture section. Here's what my settings look like, since it has to be something in there... Took secure stuff out and replaced with $

    [Settings]
    Priority=Default
    Properties=MyCustomProperty

    [Default]
    OSInstall=Y
    SkipCapture=NO

    NetworkLocation=Work
    JoinDomain=$

    MachineObjectOU=OU=OS Deployment,DC=$,DC=$

    BitsPerPel=32
    VRefresh=60
    XResolution=1
    YResolution=1



  • Removing line by line the last 5 sections to see what line is problematic...



  • Problematic line is JoinDomain=$domainName
