Issue/Introduction

Custom unattend.xml file is not being properly imported into the itemversiondata table for the deploy image task.

The logs in automation will show that the template unattend.xml file is the one in the nscap share and not the one provided by the customer

Environment

8.0 HF3

Cause

The issue is caused because the path that contains the custom unattend.xml file has a space in it.  

For example:  nscap\custom unattend\unattend.xml

Resolution

An internal bug has been created for this issue.  

Workaround:

  1. Remove the space from the folder.   E.g  change 'nscap\custom unattend' to 'nscap\customunattend'
  2. Import the custom unattend.xml file
  3. Deploy the image

Note: Symantec is actively investigating this issue.
