Hey all,

It took me a while to figure out that to have a fully unattended install you NEED to adjust the install.ini file to not give you a language selection, EULA, default language, etc.

That being said, I've finally arrived to the point where my ZCM bundle to process my install is ready, and it works...mostly.

Here is what I do:

1) run a net use command to authenticate to a SAMBA/CIFS share on the server that will host my novell client install files, as well as any future updates for that client. I need to run this because there is no other way for me to access the NSS share with the Novell Client install files on that OES box.

2) I set my install.ini file to include a statement to make a local copy of the novell client directory in c:\temp

3) The share I had set is read-only; I set [Public] to also be RO/FS of that specific path to allow for a future installation

Now that my unattended install is running, I eventually run into an error after the MS Visual Studio runtime setup. I get a windows cannot find a file error, and the file that it looks for is under:


I'm not sure why it appends a " to that path, but even removing the double-quotes doesn't seem to help.

I read on this thread that there is something with the way Windows 7 reads RO shares:


Is there a way around this? I'd like to avoid having to copy down the files to the local drive if at all possible; but according to the thread above, it seems my only recourse.

Any tips from anyone else running this sort of scenario? I have 30+ instances of .txt unattend files I need to run the /ncpf: against, and before I start building those bundles, I want to make sure everything works well...which it doesn't because of that small hiccup lol

Thanks all
