Deployment of XP SP3 via SMS 2003 Fails
Posted on 2008-10-01
We are trying to deploy XP SP3 using SMS 2003 in unattended mode; however Deployment of SP3 via SMS 2003 fails. All workstations on the network run Windows XP Pro w/SP2.
Note: We have been successful in the past deploying all sort of software including Office 2003 and 2007.
Package/Program settings are as follow:
Command line: winnt32.exe /unattend /noreboot
After running: SMS restarts computer
Requirements: This program can run on any platform
Maximum Allowed time: 240 minutes
Environment: Run with administrative rights.
Note: Also tried setting the maximum allowed time to Unknown but same results.
Error,Milestone,RBC,9/29/2008 3:22:04 PM,RBC-15S9YD1,Software Distribution,10070,The program for advertisement "RBC20043" ("RBC0001D" - "Unattended/Automated Upgrade") exceeded the maximum allowed run time of 240 minute(s). Systems Management Server (SMS) has stopped monitoring the program, and is unable to determine the status of the program. SMS will not automatically attempt to run this program again. Possible causes: The program might have taken longer to run than expected, or the program might have experienced problems while running. Possible solution: Make sure the maximum allowed run time specified for the program allows enough time for the program to finish running. If the program requires user input, ensure the program properties allow the user to interact with the program.
Can anyone help?
