Hello Rob,

I've created an image to correlate the warnings/errors you see in the script with the lines causing them.

As you can see the first warning is caused by trying to remove a registry key. You can safely ignore the warning if the script fails to remove the key. Since the key isn't there in the first place.

The second warning is related to trying to install the dotnet framework 3.5. There should be a workaround in there for systems that are not using the server manager (server 2003 for example). It seems that those workarounds aren't working. I'll look into that but for now you can manually install the dotnet framework if you don't already have it installed. You can find the installer for the dot net framework in the same folder as the target installer under <path to target installer>\Lib\Lib Apps\DotNet\dotnetfx35.exe

The third warning is caused by trying to add the LoginVSI group to the local Remote Desktop Users group. This allows the LoginVSI users created by the AD setup to logon to the machine. I assume you didn't run the AD setup (yet) therefor you get this warning. I suggest you use other means to make sure the users you intent to test with can log on to the (virtual) machine(s).

Let me know if you need any further help.

What our customers are saying

Michael Cooper - Citrix

"We use Login VSI as a level set. If we are looking at a system that we are putting on brand new hardware or that we are putting in the cloud, we may see those environments completely differently but the end result is: is the user going to have a good solid happy user experience? And what Login VSI provides us on all three platforms is fairly consistent apples-to-apples comparison: is the user happy?"

Michael Cooper, Director of Solutions Architecture and Global Alliances at Citrix Systems

Tristan Todd - VMware

“Login VSI is my favorite test orchestration and simulation tool for large-scale reference architecture testing. Not only do we use it in our testing, but we work with partners who use Login VSI exclusively, with the idea that you create the most realistic simulated workload at scale, to really test infrastructure and software capabilities. What’s more, getting the results and be able to measure yourself across platforms and across vendor solutions is just fantastic and is unequalled in the industry.”
