I have several task sequences set up to build and deploy vmware images using MDT 2012 and those work great. I also have a need to do similar deployments to physical Dell PowerEdge boxes, mostly R310, R510 and R620. All of them have idrac cards with the lifecycle controller installed.
What I have been doing is this (in a nutshell): Map the LiteTouchPE_x64.iso image to the idraq and select "attach", enter the lifcycle controller's 'deploy OS' section and configure the raid controller then allow it to connect and run the mounted ISO image. Static addresses are put into the MS wizard, the os is selected then I tell it to go.
While the OS image (usually either server 2012R2 or server 2008R2) itself ends up on the target system successfully, I am seeing errors when the MDT script tries to install .net3.5 and run "run command line" tasks. The whole thing errors out and never does updates. This exact same task sequence works great for a vmware vm but not for dell boxes.
It stands to reason that I am missing something. What am I doing wrong that the Dell boxes don't "like"? If someone has an unattended.xml and ts.xml would be handy but minus those, someone please give me a clue as to how to configure the task sequence so that it works like I expect it to such as patch updates and various settings I have put into the sequence. Thanks in advance.
