Personalization file under Base software administrator.

2007-12-27, 2:42 AM
Made a bunch of manifest files, which more or less all work. Customers like a slimmed down version of the preload. I have never seen personalization file make an ounce of difference. Whatever the installation, the computer will not join a domain, it wont install itself with the right timezone... nothing seems to work. Is it just me, or is there some magic involved? Does the file have a have a specific name? Tell me pls. Also as a sidenote, like I told Matt Kohut in person, I would like to be able to access Base Software Administrator from the service partition. Pls make it happen.

Passing along some info from a lurker:
 
"Some things to try here...

Make sure the info in the file is correct and that the domain is available during deploy.
Make sure the file has been deployed to the service partition.
The file does not need to have a specific name.  It will be renamed to "Personal.ini" when deployed to the SP.
If the SP has an image in it that contains its own personal.ini file (e.g. IUB image), it will supercede the BSA personal.ini file."

I think I have done more or less all the right way, but I havent got a chance to try it out in the next week or two.
