Systems Deployment Question

Scripted Install failing on Dell but works on HP

07/10/2015 945 views
I created a scripted install that includes joining the system to our domain.  When I run it on an HP ProDesk 600, the script works fine.  However, when I run it on a Dell Optiplex 3020, it fails.  When I open command line and attempt to run my script, the error notes that it cannot find the script file in c:\Kace\Engine.  Here is my script:

cscript join_domain.vbs domain username password DNS IP

Not sure why it would work for the HP and not the Dell -- any recommendations?  Thanks!

  • in your CMD do you change the dir to C:\Kace\Engine ??
  • No, the script is as shown above.

The Dell Optiplex did not have all the drivers installed, specifically the network driver and therefore, it never joined the domain!  Need more sleep....

If the script is not there, then the contents are immaterial.  What happens if you copy the script into the required folder and then run it? Do things complete correctly.?
Is the script file ending up in another folder?  Either the file is not being copied at all, or if variable are being used for the destination folder, perhaps the variables are resolving incorrectly.
Can you add in some logging code to try and track down the nature of the problem?
