[THIN] Re: Cloning with Remapped Drives

What happens is after we capture the sysprepped image on the server that
we have changed the drive letters on, for example C: and D: are now U:
and V:, and we blow it down to the new server, the new server comes up
with C: and D: instead of U: and V: and we get the following error:
"The logon user interface dll ctxgina.dll failed to load. "

 

What is the solution that you are referring to?  I will give it a
shot...

 

Thanks!

In what way does it not work? If it's drive letter assignment after the
imaging that's the problem then there's a solution.

        >>>>>>>>>>using sysprep in conjunction with snapclones on our
EVA SAN we can deploy an OS to a blade in about 2 or 3 minutes.
Unfortunately, this second option doesn't seem to work with Citrix and
remapped drives.

        Crikey ... how are you managing the Blades ?
        RDP is a great way to deploy operating systems and apps to your
Blades along with managing them. 
        
        BTW version 2.2 is out and available from the HP RDP website.

               We haven't tried RDP yet, we were trying to use Sysprep
when we encountered the problem.  We'll just try RDP then, it sounds
like it should work... 
        
               Does anyone know of a way to make sysprep work?  Just
curious?
        
               Thanks!

               What issues are you having with RDP and remapped drives ?

        
               RDP has supported cloning with remapped drives since an
Altiris DS patch for 1.5 was released last year.

                       Hello, we are running 8 MF XP FR3 servers with
sp4.  The Operating System is Windows 2003 server sp1.  These are HP
blade servers that currently boot from our SAN.  We are trying to
develop an effective cloning strategy but have run into the issue from
having remapped drive letters (U: and V:).  I know that this has been
discussed on this list in the past and I thought there was some type of
solution that works now, but I cannot remember for sure what is was.
What are people doing to get around this issue?  We have licensing for
HP's RDP (rapid deployment pack), but if you know of other solutions
that work, please let me know as well. 
        
                       Thanks in advance for your replies!
