sysprep file parsing error at install
Last modified: 2013-11-20 08:23:02 EST
Description of problem:
Creation of a windows 7 VM from template fails because ,,Windows could not parse or process unattend answer file [a:\sysprep.inf] for pass [oobeSystem]. The settings specified in the answer file could not be applied..."
Looking at the answer file it seems that AdministratorPassword key is getting a hash, where it is expecting plaintext at two places.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new windows VM from template
Creation fails, probably because of the inconsistency
VM should be setup properly.
This worked on previous builds on 3.3
In this particular setup the mismatched value of the password was caused by manual pki data replacement after engine install. The engine stores passwords in encrypted form in the db. After the pki data has been replaced, the password couldn't be decrypted anymore.
