I've created 2 new post-install task scripts and upon post-install on any system, I'm getting an error:

Task ID (number)

Task Name (task name)

Return Code: 2

Error description: The system cannot find the file specified.

 

When I click edit Tasks.xml, and look through the code for the offending tasks, I see:

<Task ID="219">

<Name>VBS - GetSetAsset</Name>

<WorkingDirectory>%systemdrive%\KACE\Applications\219</WorkingDirectory>

<CommandLine><![CDATA[getsetasset.vbs arg1 arg2]]></CommandLine>

<Parameters></Parameters>

<PostTaskAction>Reboot</PostTaskAction>

<KACETaskType>Application</KACETaskType>

<FileType>Exe</FileType>

<Type>PO</Type>

<Guid>15384ce1924ae3</Guid>

</Task>

If I go to the specified Working Directory, it shows right up and I can run the script.

My other script is similar and has the same error and XML code.

Here's what it looks like in K2000:

add cscript in front of your command

  • Is there a way to test that without having to re-do the whole image deployment again? Our WIMs take 30-40 mins to deploy!
    • Yes there is. Just open task.xml and edit it and retry! It looks like cscript did it, I'll repost in a minute.

did you just update to 3.6? It's possible the task engine doesn't like the way your task is formatted. I had some issues with mine when I initially moved over, I had to work through this checklist a few times:

  • We updated a few months ago, but I'll take a look at the link.
