Unable to run System Update on T60

2008-04-07, 15:01 PM
We have run into this on many of our T60s in our company.  System update runs without issue when our image is applied, but once the user's data is copied onto the PC, System update no longer runs without turning up the following message:  An error occurred while gathering user information."  We have not yet been able to find a rhyme or reason for this issue as it is an inconsisten problem:  it will happen on some laptops of a particular model, but not all.  It does happen on mine.  I appreciate your help.

What's the method for copying the user data?  What is copied?  Is it simply data directories, or are you overwriting data in \documents and settings?  Anything being applied to HKLM or HKCU in the registry?

We are using Altiris to do the personality transplant and the imaging.  The update works fine on the clean image, but fails once we load the personality.  The HKLM and HKCU are both migrated from the old machine to the new one during the personality transplant process.  We are also migrating \documents and settings data as well as data from other places on the PC.

I am having a similar issue but it is on a clean build of server 2008 on my t60p.  Are plans in the works to make this OS compatable with SU?  :smileysad:

Server 2k8 isn't a supported OS on the T60p, so, no, we have no plans to make TVSU work in that environment.

Bloo, you replied to the last guy, but haven't responded to my last post about the way we migrate our data and the Registry parts that are affected.  Can you make any suggestions?  Thanks.

Did you find a fix or resolve the issue between the Altiris tool and System Update? I believe I am running into the same problem.
 
Any suggestions or help would be appreciated!

I haven't heard anything back at all.  We're still experiencing the issue.

What's the source system and what is the target system?  It works on some but not on others, so which source/target combination works and which source/target combination fails?

Copying HKLM and HKCU in totality is a Very Bad Idea, if that's what the program is indeed doing.  It is possible that this process is setting or re-setting something that is hosing up TVSU.
