How Do I Disable/remove Qos Packet Scheduler?

10 posts in this topic

I am having trouble disabling/removing QOS Packet Scheduler from my unattended install. According to previous posts on this forum all you need to do is add the following lines to winnt.sif:

[Components]

NetOc = On < makes winnt.sif process the NetOptionalComponents section

[NetOptionalComponents]

Beacon=0 < turns off the QOS Packet Scheduler

This doesn’t work for me.

Another post mentions editing the registry and creating the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Psched\

And create this DWORD value:

NonBestEffortLimit 0x00000000

This registry key is explained in the following MS article and doesn’t turn off the QOS Packet Scheduler:

http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documen...entry/93815.asp

Can someone please tell me how to stop the QOS Packet Scheduler from installing or how to disable it?

Might not be the answer your looking for but, nLite can remove it..

Otherwise i bet the code is in the Ref file..

;Disable Quality of Service RSVP
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\RSVP]
"Start"=dword:00000004

This should do the trick although untested by myself, as I don't use it. I do stop several other services using this method.

I know it can be done through the sif but I don't have that info at hand.

I take it you're using WXP. If you are using W2K check here.

Good luck.

EDIT: (about 6 to get it right)

Ohh darn... Sorry, your talking about Packet Scheduler... In that case, don't bother with the link. And you'd be looking at this registry value:

;Disable Quality of Service Packet Scheduler
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\PSched]
"Start"=dword:00000004

... again, untested. ;)

Drewdatrip - The setting in nLite only seems to relate to the QOS RSVP service not the QOS Packet Scheduler Network Service.

enuffsaid - hehe... i just tried that PSched setting in the registry and it took out my netowrk connection, ipconfig reported no network adapters. :D

Anyone else got any suggestions?

Sorry havent been following the forum for a while, but it appears you are missing some items when you specify the network config in your winnt.sif

Here is what i do to get rid of it...

[Identification]
   JoinWorkgroup=WORKGROUP

[Networking]
   InstallDefaultComponents=Yes

[NetAdapters]
   Adapter1=params.Adapter1

[params.Adapter1]
   INFID=*

[NetServices]
   MS_SERVER=params.MS_SERVER

[NetProtocols]
   MS_TCPIP=params.MS_TCPIP

[params.MS_TCPIP]
   DNS=Yes
   UseDomainNameDevolution=No
   EnableLMHosts=No
   AdapterSections=params.MS_TCPIP.Adapter1

[params.MS_TCPIP.Adapter1]
   SpecificTo=Adapter1
   DHCP=Yes
   WINS=No
   NetBIOSOptions=0
   DNSDomain=domain.com

[NetOptionalComponents]
   Beacon=0

like stated aboved, all Win components can be removed in [Components] section of the unattend file... if u wanna add a Win component once u have installed Windows in a unattended manner....

sysocmgr.exe and some switches to that.... the components have the same names as in unattend file which can be found in the ref.chm or deploy.chm files...

some [components] are undocumented from M$ though..

You can remove Qos AND File and Print Sharing from your network settings by putting this in your Winnt.sif with nothing under it (leave blank):

example:

[NetServices]

[WindowsFirewall]

Profiles=WindowsFirewall.TurnOffFirewall

:yes:

To clarify, just add the [NetServices] entry with nothing under it, the other stuff is just an example.....just add to your winnt.sif with whatever else you already have in it..... :P

Of course if you feel you need File and Print Services, then you can add the following without affecting the above

[NetServices]
   MS_SERVER=params.MS_SERVER
