SYMPTOMS

When Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS) runs the Zero Touch Installation (ZTI) script (ZeroTouchInstallation.vbs) that is included in the Microsoft Solution Accelerator for Business Desktop Deployment (BDD), the ZTI deployment operation is unsuccessful. Specifically, the ZTI client installation fails during the StateCapture phase.

On the client computer, the following event is logged in the Application log:

Event ID: 7023
Type: Error
Description:
The OSD Agent service has terminated unexpectedly with the following error: No application is associated with the specific file for this operation.

Additionally, the %systemroot%\Smsosd\OSDAgent.log file contains an error message that is similar to the following:

Starting phase StateCapture.

Saving Logs into the Temp Folder : C:\WINNT\SMSOSD

CAUSE

This problem occurs because the Zero Touch Installation Deployment Feature Team Guide contains a documentation error. In the guide, a space character is missing between the ZeroTouchInstallation.vbs script and the phase parameter.

For all ZeroTouchInstallation.vbs phases, the command should have a space character between the ZeroTouchInstallation.vbs script and the phase parameter. For example, the command should have the following format:
ZeroTouchInstallation.vbs /phase:StateCapture
The Zero Touch Installation Deployment Feature Team Guide incorrectly omits this space character in the instructions for configuring the StateCapture, Preinstall, Postinstall, and StateRestore phases.

RESOLUTION

To resolve this problem, add a space character between the ZeroTouchInstallation.vbs script and the phase parameter.

For example, type the following command to add the StateCapture phase parameter:
Zerotouchinstallation.vbs /phase:StateCapture
To correctly configure the State Capture action, follow these steps:
  1. In the SMS Administrator console, expand Image Packages, expand Package, and then click Programs.

    Note Package is the name of the package that you want to configure.
  2. In the details pane, double-click Program.
  3. In the Program Properties dialog box, click the Advanced tab.

    Note Program is the name of the program that you want to configure.
  4. In the Phase list, click State Capture, and then click Add.
  5. In the list of action types, click Custom, and then click OK.
  6. Complete the custom actions by using the information that is listed in the following table.

    Note ServerName is the name of the server that is hosting the shared folder.
