Issue

Each user of the Ghost Solution Suite Console has at least a public security role in the SQL Database.
In 3.3 RU3 and earlier, a user with a public security role can make changes in the database tables while accessing the Ghost Solution Suite Database directly from the Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio.
Starting from 3.3 RU4, only the
Select
permission for database tables is granted to all existing and new users who have a public security role and who are assigned to the Ghost Solution Suite Database (upgraded or newly installed).
N/A
In the Ghost Solution Suite Console, in the
Tools > Security
dialog box, you can add an Active Directory user and grant the user the administrative rights. However, the user does not get the administrative rights in the Ghost Solution Suite Web Console.
N/A
When you split an image captured to a network device (via HTTP or UNC), the size of one image file segment is limited to 2 GB by default, even if you set the
-split
switch and define the value greater than 2048.
N/A
When you split an image, the number of image file segments is limited to 1000 files.
N/A
You can install an automation folder to Windows client computers using the preboot configuration that is created after importing 64bit and 32bit preboot OS. However, a 32bit automation folder gets installed to all computers when in the Ghost Solution Suite console, you select a group of 64bit and 32bit computers, and click
Install Automation folder
.
N/A
Linux Ghost tools (gdisk, ghregedit, ghconfig) do not support Linux-style switches (defined using '-').
N/A
In 3.3 RU3 and earlier, you need to manually define the -ISR switch while imaging disks on Linux client computers with XFS partitions. Starting from 3.3 RU4, the Ghost Solution Suite works as follows:
  • Automatically uses the algorithm that is required for imaging disks on Linux client computers with XFS partitions.
  • Lets you capture an image of the whole disk with mixed file systems (i.e., when EXT 2/3/4 partitions and XFS partitions are configured on the same disk).
N/A
In 3.3 RU3 and earlier, the Ghost tools use inconsistent enumeration logic on Linux computers.
Starting from 3.3 RU4, the new logic will sort the devices by groups: SCSI devices are listed first, then IDE devices, and then all others. Inside each group, devices are sorted by name.
N/A
In 3.3 RU3 and earlier, when you use the Ghost Standard tools to create configuration for a boot disk, no OEM Extensions are included into the boot image by default. As a result, a WinPE boot disk may be created with no ghost tools installed.
Starting from 3.3 RU4, on the
Boot Disk Creator – Create Configuration
page, the default
OEM Extensions
setting is
All
.
The installer fails to validate your credentials when you install the following Ghost Solution Suite Server Components:
  • Ghost Solution Suite Web Console
  • iPXE
After upgrade from 3.3 RU2, the Ghost Solution Suite Web Console fails to load for the users with limited rights.
N/A
The
Scripted OS Install
wizard fails to work in the Ghost Solution Suite Web Console.
N/A
An organizational unit of a computer does not change after you configure the
Modify Configuration
task, change an organizational unit value under
Microsoft networking configuration
settings, and then run the task.
When you run the Ghost manually and configure its settings in the UI, some settings are ignored. For example, if you uncheck
Spanning
and
AutoName
, save the settings, and capture an image, the image will be spanned and the autoname will be kept.
N/A
In some cases, PC Transplant fails to capture a personality image from client computers.
While you install the Ghost Solution Suite, the following error message appears: "Failed to perform Database changes before upgrade."
No further instructions are provided.
In 3.3 RU3 and earlier, the Linux image creation fails if
-blind
is not defined in the command line or X11 libs are not found on the computer where you run the Ghost.
Starting from 3.3 RU4, Linux Ghost imaging does not require the
-blind
switch.
When
-blind
is defined, the Ghost provides the information about the progress in percent; no GUI is displayed.
When
-blind
is not defined, the Ghost provides the information about the currently executed stage of the process; GUI is displayed if the required X11 libs are in place.
N/A
The
Create Disk Image
task continues to run even if its subtask for preparing an image using Sysprep fails. As a result, an invalid image without proper preparation by Sysprep may be created.
N/A
The services
DHCP Client
and
TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper
stop running in the following scenario:
  1. You configure the
    Distribute Disk Image
    task and enable the option
    Automatically perform configuration task after completing this imaging task
    .
  2. You run the
    Distribute Disk Image
    task to restore an image on a client computer.
