Stupid RIS SP4 problems


BP Prgm

So I slipstream SP4 into my FLAT image on my RIS server...

well when I go to pull down a RIPREP image, it yells at me for not having a
flat SP3 image.

I thought the whole purpose for having a flat image is so you could
slipstream Service Packs on to the flat image and all RipRep images would be
updated with the new Service Pack.

Instead I had to create a second flat image of SP3 to use all the RipRep SP3

Am I doing something wrong?

You should never slipstream the RIS image already on the server.

The RIS server will need an image for each service pack version you wish to
RIS; our RIS server has a flat image for W2KProSP3 and W2KProSP4.


RIS server & Images setup.

RIS server, if sp3 , then the first RIS image from CD needs to be sp3
sooooo a RIS server with sp3 is giving out sp3 images.
if your going to need a SP4 image for workstation's, the the server must
have sp4.
once you get a RIS server setup with an image of sp4 ( server is running
sp4 )
then you can go back & add a sp3 slipstreamed w2k pro image.
SlipStreaming is always always done with a clean flat image.
if you have a slipstreamed cd with sp3 , you can not slipsteam sp4 to this
if you have a slipstreamed RIS image , leave it be & add a new image thats
slipstreamed or not.

if your going to need sp3 & 4 on RIS server for W2K pro , then server needs
to be sp4.
then after you get the frist sp4 w2k pro image to server, bo back to do the
sp3 image.
