Properties

Published: December 20, 2007

The scripts used in LTI and ZTI reference properties to determine the process steps and configuration settings used during the deployment process. The scripts create some of these properties automatically. You must configure other properties in the CustomSettings.ini file. In addition, some of these properties are:

  • Specific to ZTI only.

  • Specific to LTI only.

  • For use in both ZTI and LTI.

Use this reference to help determine the correct properties to configure and the valid values to include for each property.

For each property the following information is provided:

  • Description. Provides a description of the purpose of the property and any pertinent information regarding the customization of the property.

    Note   Unless explicitly specified for LTI or ZTI only, a property is valid for both LTI and ZTI.

  • Value and Description. Indicates the valid values to be specified for the property and a brief description of what each value means. (Values in italics indicate a value is substituted—for example a value of user1, user2 indicates you would replace user1 and user2 with the actual name of user accounts.)

  • Example. Provides sample property use as it might appear in the .ini files.

For more information on these and other task sequence properties that might be referenced while performing a ZTI deployment, see Operating System Deployment Task Sequence Variables at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb632442.aspx.

LoadStateArgs

The arguments passed to the USMT Loadstate process. The ZTI script inserts the appropriate logging, progress, and state store parameters. If this value is not included in the settings file, the user state restore process is skipped.

If the Loadstate process finishes successfully, the user state information is deleted. In the event of a Loadstate failure (or non-zero return code), the local state store is moved to %WINDIR%\StateStore to prevent deletion and to ensure that no user state information is lost.

Description

Arguments

The command-line arguments passed to Loadstate.exe.

The default arguments specified by Deployment Workbench are as follows:

  • /v. Enables verbose output in the Loadstate log. The default is 0. You can specify any number from 0 to 15. The value 5 enables verbose and status output.

  • /c. When specified, Loadstate will continue to run even if there are nonfatal errors. Without the /c option, Loadstate exits on the first error.

  • /lac. Specifies that if the account being migrated is a local (non-domain) account, and it does not exist on the destination computer, then USMT will create the account but it will be disabled.

For more information on these and other arguments, see the USMT Help files.

Location

The geographic location of the target computers. A list of IP addresses that correspond to the default gateways defined for the computers within that location defines the Location property. An IP address for a default gateway can be associated with more than one location.

Typically, the value for the Location property is set by performing a database query on the database managed through Deployment Workbench. Deployment Workbench can assist in creating the locations, defining property settings associated with the locations, and then configuring CustomSettings.ini to perform the database query for the Location property and the property settings associated with the locations.

For example, a LocationSettings section in CustomSettings.ini can query the LocationSettings view in the database for a list of locations containing the value specified in the DefaultGateway property listed in the Parameters property. The query returns all settings associated with each default gateway.

Then the scripts parse each section that corresponds to the locations returned in the query. For example, values of [NYC] and the [NYC-6311 Lexington-4th Floor] sections in CustomSettings.ini can represent the corresponding locations. This is an example of how one computer can belong to two locations. The [NYC] section is for all computers in a larger geographic area (an entire city), while the [NYC-6311 Lexington-4th Floor] section is for all computers on the fourth floor at 6311 Lexington Ave., in New York City.

USMTMigFiles

A list of files in XML format that are used by USMT (Scanstate.exe) to identify user state migration information to be saved. When this property is not specified, the ZTIUserState.wsf script uses MigApp.xml, MigUser.xml, and MigSys.xml. Otherwise, ZTIUserState.wsf uses the files explicitly referenced in this property. The USMTMigFiles property has a numeric suffix (for example, USMTMigFiles1 or USMTMigFiles2).

Note   Use this property to specify the .xml files to be used by Scanstate.exe instead of using the /I parameter in the ScanStateArgs property. This prevents the ZTIUserState script from potentially duplicating the same list of .xml files.
