Ris %password% Problem

7 posts in this topic

Hello all!

I've been working on this one for like 1 week and haven't found anything yet.

When im logging to CIW i log on with my domain admin account, so i get full privilege over the network.

When deploing workstation thru RIS, my .sif include a section where it tries to join my domain.

It in my sif fileive got somehting like this:

[identification]

JoinDomain=%SERVERDOMAIN%

DomainAdmin=%USERNAME%

DomainAdminPassword=%PASSWORD%

The problem here is when it change the value for the one i provided in the CIW, all value are ok except the password that stays to %PASSWORD%.

Then, worst of it, it lock down my account because it tries a lot of time.

Anyone has a clue on this one.

Thank you

Try this:

[Identification]
   JoinDomain=YOUR_DOMAIN_NAME
   CreateComputerAccountInDomain=Yes
   DoOldStyleDomainJoin=Yes

and leave out this:

DomainAdmin=%USERNAME%
DomainAdminPassword=%PASSWORD%

from your .sif

Have you tried pre-staging your workstations in the A.D.?

Good luck

Is there any way to retrieve the %PASSWORD% value entered in the CIW to put them in the sif file?
