Image creation question
I have a concrete question regarding the creation of WSM images:
After I've run the vDiskCapture and captured the image to server, the client requests a restart right? The question is; should the next boot be streamed from server or should it be local? I cannot find this in the WSM documentation, and I often get errors when the "PostCapture" process runs after the restart...
You should reboot to the local OS, it will then finish the capture and be ready for addition in the WSM UI.
Thanks, I'll try that on the image I'm creating now.
I've test to create a reference image with separate page file and user profile option, but after the reboot of my reference device, i've got the following error "PostVDiskCapture ERROR Failed to format VDisk partition d:\ error 18, 0",
i've test to reinstall all the solution, the OS... but already the same error.
My config :
Windows 2003 R2 - WSM 3.5Wyse R00L and Windows XP SP3 VL.
Thanks in advance.
The only related error I've seen is with a non-English client OS, however I've never tried separate partitions yet.
I've seen this error before - and it was when I tried to separate the swap partition. There was no particular reason for me to do this, so I just skipped the extra partitions and it went well after that.
I will test this method on Friday, then i will update the post; i just want to test to separate the partition to test the installation of OfficeScan antivirus. Have you ever try to install officescan on wsm thin client?
Thx. a lot.
I've never used antivirus on WSM clients in a production environment. We ran some tests with Sophos on a very small test environment. This seemed to work ok, but I've no idea how it would perform in production.
Max, it should work even with a swap partition. If you still encounter errors, please post the content of the file "C:\Program Files\Wyse\WSM\log\osmout.txt" to this thread. Also, what language is your Win XP OS? (English? Other?)
