KCleanup.exe stalling on 20H2
My colleague recently setup a new Win 10 Enterprise 20H2 image on our SDA. We've been using the streaming template for a long time and our standardized image creation process has stayed the same. For the first time, our deployments are hanging on running c:\kcleanup.exe. If we close this window it's fine. We've checked our BitDefender Anti-Virus logs and have not seen anything quarantined and even opened a ticket with Quest Support with our debug logs (they said that everything looked normal). Have any of you being running into the same issue?
I'm planning on testing uploading the WIM as alternative to using the streaming template since I read that it should not run kcleanup if the SDA reads it as sysprepped. Is there a way to flag it as sysprepped with the streaming template?
Thanks for any assistance.
Have you tried to reproduce this with a vanilla Windows ISO via Scripted Install? (same Win10 20H2 version)
Is the same thing happening without joining to a domain and\or having an AV installed?
(included in the Image or installed via GPO or installed via Post Install task, regardless of the scenario take it out, and try again).
Also What exactly is a Stream Template?
If you're talking about this:
Support for this was dropped in version 5.1 back in early 2018.
That's a now a built in function. (Deploy directly from server).
