Hoping this is the right forum to leave this. If not, mod(s) please move.
My windows admins are looking to leverage BigFix to automate the upgrade of Windows 2008 servers in our environment to Win2012…we have a pretty large Win2008 footprint, so they’re adamant on using BF to get this done. They have done some testing manually and have run into a driver issue with these 2008 systems, where the “VM LSI Parallel Disk Controller driver” is incompatible with the Win2012 install pre-check. The driver has to be loaded during the install process.
What we’re looking to do…is deploy the Win2012 ISO image, mount it…run the upgrade commands and then clean up upon completion. This seems simple enough…but based on some example Fixlets I have for upgrading OS’s, I am thinking I have gotten myself in over my head. LOL (Now with this driver thing, it threw a monkey wrench into that plan.)
Wondering if anyone has run into this issue or something similar? Or possible suggestions (loading this driver into the ISO perhaps??) ??
