Intelligent Provisioning ProLiant DL360p Gen8

I used Intelligent Provisioning (upgraded to latest version 1.40) to install Windows Server 2008 R2. I checked Customized Configuration to allow System Partition sizing.

The install begins correctly and Windows installation starts I get the following error message :

 

The following answer file could not be located C:\autounattend.xml

 

and the installation stops.

 

Many thanks for some help.

Hi,

 

This is generally seen on gen8 server that use custom install method and has special characters, hence p lease check if any special characters are used in Company Name , Organization Name and Owner Name in the OS information section.

 

Thanks & regards,

Re: Intelligent Provisioning ProLiant DL360p Gen8

Hello ,

 

Please try to avoid special charachters (& , _ etc) in your  Company Name , Organization Name and Owner Name in the OS information section. You can add them later if needed at all!

 

this should help or at least helped by some customers of mine!

 

i hope it will work also for you!

I had the exact same issue on a DL320e Gen8.

 

Spent almost 2 days as I ended up deleting array and recreating and trying all different options untill I found this post.

 

The Organisation name has an '&' in it and I kept the computer name simple - to be changed later.

 

Glad at least the install is proceeding

 

thanks

I've brought this issue to the attention of the Intelligent Provisioning team.  It will be fixed in a future release.

I can also confirm that this issue is still present in the current version, Intelligent Provisioning v2.50. 

I attempted a Server 2016 install numerous times and wasted a couple hours troubleshooting iLO Remote Console, and it was all because I put a '&' in the company name... Ugh.
