SCCM and Operating System Deployment – Task Sequence process

15/07/2010 1 comment

Operating System Deployment allows us to create operating system images and deploy those images to computers. Operating System Deployment also provides task sequences which help smooth the progress of the the deployment.

I recently needed to perform a shutdown at the end of the a task sequence. the process started but never ends and the shutdown process didn’t occur.
i try to check it thru the smsts.log and found that the command executed (“shutdown /t 0 /s”) but OSD has suppressed the shutdown.

after some research i found that Task Sequence prevent any “outside” operations like reboot or shutdown unless we use the built in task.

if you wish to override this you can use the following http://blogs.technet.com/b/deploymentguys/archive/2008/05/23/osd-forcing-a-reboot.aspx
