when deploying with a USB with an answer file the only account created is asp.net login

Recommended Posts

when deploying with a USB with an answer file the only account created is asp.net login, if I remove the answer file and put everything in manually everything works just fine. Any ideas of what might be cuasing this?

answer file:

Hi John,

When you are manually inputting the data into the deploy wizard are you enabling the local administrator account? It looks as though your answer file is not enabling the administrator account? Is your answer file pointing to the same image you're browsing too when you map manually? SmartDeploy's answer file does not affect which logins are present or not.

Thansk for the responce!

When I'm manually inputting the the data, I don't see an option to enable the local administrtaor ( I asssume it's enabled by default). This is the whole process I take.

1. boot to USB with no answer file

2. first screen I click advanced and enter in my command line codes and then click next.

3. I then select the other information such as computer name join to domain. what OU I want it to go to (which could be my issue) is the syntex different from AD?

4. export the answer file I just created and put save it to the USB root.

installation goes will the first time, but after I attempt to use the answer file things go south.

Thanks for your help on this!
