Autodesk 2016 Deployment via KACE Script keeps failing halfway through Installation.
Greeting and Salutations all. I am fairly new to the world of KACE and have been banging my head with this problem for several weeks now so I thought it would be as good a time as any to enter the ITNinja world and seek advice.
I work for a SMB Construction firm. My Team are attempting to deploy Autodesk Design Suite Premium to a number of our end- user hardware and are coming unstuck at deploying this in an automated manner.
We have used the Autodesk Deployment Tool to create our new Image and stored in on a centralised network area accessible by all the machines and users required for this process. We have tested the installation manually calling it and witnessed it successfully run on 3 machines in our fleet.
Following this we have written a BAT file that will manually map the network share as a drive for our end user then call the relevant Image. This has run with a number of switches that have been recommended via the Autodesk website that put the installation into a basic UI mode and specify the location of the .ini file that customise the install with all the prerequisites you have set in building the image.
Again we tested the deployment of this bat file in the following ways:
1. Called it as a local user of the machine – Software Installed
2. Called it as a domain user on the machine – Software Installed
3. Called it as a domain admin user on the machine – Software Installed
4. Used PS Tools to call a System CMD Prompt and run the BAT file as a system user – Software Installed.
All being good we now attempted to deploy
this file via a KACE script. However every time we run it the process stops
around halfway through (I know it has started as some of the application have
What’s more the main log file created by the Autodesk tool does not update when the KACE script calls the IMG meaning we are left with no log information.
The Script is a an Online K Script being Run as local user.
The Allow run without a logged in user box is checked.
I attach a modified version of the script below. If someone has experienced similar with this and could advise what we are doing wrong I would greatly appreciate it.
Hardware in Question are all DELL Precision T3610s
