RDP 2.0 - Server Deployment Job

Hello All,
We have been using RDP since version 1.60 and we are now looking to upgrade our 2.0 server to 2.20. As part of this we have been looking into changing the the Server Deployment style jobs from the old 1.60 Scripted Installation jobs... we have this working all apart from one thing... we cannot specify a drive size for the initial partition... the unattend file has the ExtendOEMPartition set to 13000 as per the old unattend file we were using. This used to give as a 15GB primary partition... now once the server is built the whole drive is used. We have changed the OEM partition setting to 0 so that no extension will take place and still the whole drive is used.
Can anyone advise if they have seen this in RDP 2.0 as we need to get this resolved to move to RDP 2.20.

Thank you in advance.

Hi,

We have not used RDP2.0 in our environment but RDP2.20 has the feature of changing the partition size.

You can also check on RDP2.0.If you check the advanced properties of your defined jobs , Does it shows up the disk configuration?

Thanks

Thanks for the reply.

We actually found the issue... when the FAT32 image is being deployed to the server this was set to use 100% of the partition. We have changed this to 5GB and the ExtendOEMPartition section of the unattend.txt file is now working as required.
