Issue: MMC snap-in error with UIU integration

Symptoms:
When integrated with the UIU, the Microsoft Management Console snap-in fails in error after selecting OK or APPLY in a task sequence that contains the UIU task element.

Resolution:
The integration components have been modified to correct the issue.

 

 

Issue: UIU Plug-in Apply Failure

 

 

Symptoms:
In some environments, when selecting apply in the UI Deployment Configuration task sequence element, the apply function causes an exception, resulting in a failed plug-in configuration.

Resolution:
The UIU plug-in apply process has been modified to handle errors properly and not throw an exception.

 

 

Reminder: KNOWN ISSUE - WinPE 3.0 & 4.0 (x86 only)

 

 

Symptoms:
Servicing older Windows PE media (3.x & 4.x) requires 32-bit specific binaries (DISM) which do not load under a 64-bit process, resulting in error conditions. Big Bang recommends that Windows PE version 10 be employed. Contact UIU Support for additional information.

Please refer to the UIU Plug-ins 2.0 - MDT User Guides for detailed implementation and usage instructions.

 

 

 

 

 


 


The UIU Plug-ins 2.0 is a versatile solution that may be invoked though the standard MDT Deployment Workbench interface via a task element (UIU Deployment Configuration) or directly through a Run Command Line task element. Furthermore, The UIU may be invoked manually from within a Windows PE session under the direction of UIU Support. Multiple modes of operation have been provided to accommodate environmental differences as well as policy/change control restrictions.

 

 

 

 

Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT)

In MDT, integration consists of the inclusion of a uiusms.dll in the "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Deployment Toolkit\bin" directory as well as a modification (additional section appended) to the Actions.xml file in the same directory. If integration is not desired or permitted, an Administrator may launch the UIU Plug-ins 2.0 from a Run Command Line task element (with the correct arguments) to achieve a successful result.

For more information on alternative methods of invoking the UIU Plug-ins 2.0, Please contact UIU Support.

 

 

 

 

IMP Files

This version of the UIU requires the use of UIU IMP files to establish a UIU Repository from locally existing files. If bandwidth allows, Big Bang recommends that the UIU Repository be established (and regularly updated) from Big Bang's Online Updates resources. UIU DAT files are not supported.

UIU Import files (*.IMP) contain required driver files, driver database(s) and UIU components which are used to populate a UIU Repository from which deployed target machines will draw necessary files during OS deployment Task Sequence executions. These files are used in conjunction with the UIUPM.
