RISult - Integrating RIS + RyanVM/BTS packs

114 posts in this topic

Hi this is my first post to this fantastic site.

I have a 2003R2 domain with about 250 PCs and 40 Laptops all running XP Pro sp2, I have been using RIS with limited sucess mainly due NICs and was all but ready to give up when I stumbled onto this site.

I have been reading posts for about two weeks now so I have read quite a bit about RIS and silent installs.

I tried autoris just because the author wanted to know if it would work with win2003, but i have had no sucess so I then downloaded Risult but I'm having problems with that too almost the same message so I was hoping someone could give me a shove in the right direction.

The error message with RISULT is

line 62 of the inf file tmp\678d2f61acb214ac3214aed15b3426.sif in invalid

press any key to restart

AUTORIS had a very similar error but i failed to write down the exact error.

Thanks

I love this site

Hi,

The problem lies with your SIF file (located in the templates folder).

Please can you post your SIF file, being careful to first edit out the Windows licence key and administrator password, if present.

Cheers,

Andy

Hi,

It appears though your encrypted admin password is annoying RIS. Could you try a plain text password instead?

Let me know how it goes.

Also, if you need any further instructions just let me know too.

Good luck,

Andy

Hi,

RISult v1.1.4 now available.

Again, the only change is to get it working with the latest DP Base 6.03. RISult will now only work with this version of DP Base.

Cheers,

Andy

im getting the same plug & play monitor problem as reported by Resonate.

I have tried an install on two different pcs Fulji seimens & a Dell GX520 on the same 17" dell tft monitor.

The Fuji installs fine & the plug & play for the monitor dosent come up. When I do a ris install now on a gx520 the part to search the web for drivers apears. you can select to not look on the web then force it to search & then it installs plug & play drivers for the monitor.

The problem seems to occur on what VGA/Display adapter you have in the PC & not with the actual monitor. The GX520 has an intel display adapter.cannot give details of the exact one at present.

Does anyone have a solution to get round this issue as its anoying when you have to put input in on an unattended install..

Hi,

I would do a build with only RyanVM Update pack integrated (presuming you're using RyanVM packs!) to check if the issue is related to this - as I've certainly heard of this happening outside of RIS (and therefore do not think it is specific to either RIS or RISult).

If you're not using the RVM pack then then try leaving out the BTS packs too.

Let me know how it goes.

Cheers,

Andy

Another problem..

my build is risult 2.0.4 latest ryan & BTS..

when my machine install s complete C:\D were the bts drivers are held still remains. for some reason the directory is not deleted. it apears as if the guirunonce is not running & the bts cleenup.cmd is not running.

any ideas?

this is what is put into the sif file when RIsULT runs..

[GUIRunOnce]

command9 = "%SystemDrive%\D\BTS_DPs_finish.cmd"

command10 = "%SYSTEMDRIVE%\TEMP\BTS_DPs_cleanup.cmd"

would a runonceEX.cmd run from cmdlines.txt be effecting these commands running.?

Hi,

I've seen this problem myself - and not just with RIS/RISult. It has been mentioned on the BTS forums. My solution is that I add an extra:

command11=cleanup.cmd

to the [GUIRunOnce] section of the SIF file. The cleanup.cmd I create just deletes the "%SystemDrive%\D" folder.

This works for me.

Sorry I can't be more specific.

Cheers,

Andy

you also needto delete the temp folder which contains the bts_cleanup.cmd file.

I think I will add this cleanup to my cleanup commands in my cleanup.cmd which runs after my runoncex.cmd..

Hi,

Yes - you are right. On checking, my cleanup.cmd deletes that folder also.

Cheers,

Hi,

RISult v1.1.6 now available.

Didn't quite finish the necessary work in RISult 1.1.5 to get it working with DP Base 6.03.4.

Now fixed.

Cheers,

Andy
