Issue with extracting a task

(imported topic written by mcalvi91)

We are using a process to collect user data from a system prior to reimaging the system. When we run the task below, most of the time the process runs without issue. Every once in a while, something does not extract correctly and the process fails. We use the unzip utility we found in another fixlet somewhere to do the unzipping because we need the files in a certain location. Anyone have any insight on how to make this succeed in every instance vs fail every once in a while?

// pull down migrate script


continue if {(size of it = 7599732 AND sha1 of it = “9600ff6614efcc7e00da228961275143f9d1c39d”) of file “reimagezip.tmp” of folder “__Download”}

extract reimagezip.tmp

//Download UnZip Applicaton


continue if {(size of it = 77984 and sha1 of it = “c881e91607dc8ac472ac692bc6b9dd0357b0d15a”) of file “bigCC.tmp” of folder “__Download”}

Does BigFix show a failure or is it the unzip process itself that is failing?


(imported comment written by mcalvi91)

It is the unzip itself failing. Bigfix returns a success

is the machine you running this on a x64 bit machine ?

This version of c:\Temp\unzip-5.52.exe is not compatible with the version of Win
dows you're running. Check your computer's system information to see whether you
 need a x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of the program, and then contact th
e software publisher.

nope, its on an XP sp3 32 bit installation. It extracts some of the data, just not all of the data.

antiVirus ?

if it was reproduce-able i would say yes. problem with this is that it is intermittent on the system which is what leads me to believe it is something within the unzip utilitiy
