I have made an upgrade task sequence in Microsoft Deployment Tool.
I start the litetouch.vbs som the mdtproduction$ share.
Post Deployment works, and uninstalls antivirus using an "install application" task
However, when done the post processing hasnt happened, at least in regards to the install application part.
I believe a commandline job was executed, but I am not sure.
Could it be permissions to the share? Where can I see in logfiles, the machine tried at all?
In the file named ZTIapplications in logs$, i can see the post processing applications, but none thereafter.

Hi,

Logs are in the MININT\Logs\BDD.log

What AV are you trying to remove and what is the command-line you are using?
Does it work cleanly as admin?
Is it silent?

You need to answer yes to both before even thinking of putting it in any OSD.

The problem is not removing.
Its adding programs after upgrade has happened. Different msi packages which works when run by hand or in a clean win 10 mdt deployment.

OK gotcha - I mis-read it.

FYI : slight correction to path, I was in the middle of a reboot where I'm building mine :)

root\MiniNT\SMSOSD\OSDLogs\BDD.log

and another one is _SMSTSequence\SMSTS.log

BDD is the first place to look.

The logs are critical to solve this.

Back from vacation.
The log files you are mentioning, isnt this only until the system is up and running?
The system has installed, and I cant seem to get it to do the post processing.

Hi,

Yes, unfortunately, unless the build crashes badly enough not to cleanup, it deletes those folders at the end. If the machine has finished you will have to rebuild it, or building another, and copy the logs off the machine before it reboots.

Should'nt it deliver logs to the LOGS$ share on the MDT server?
