Error impersonating configured user

What is the recommended path????

If a user is logged in .msi apps with transforms seem to always fail if I set them as dynamic administrator or Secure System user stating that it cannot apply the transform.

on the flip side

If no user is logged in I get "Error impersonating configured user." and the app fails to install.


I'm looking for a silent install to go out workstation associated, what is the best method?

Re: Error impersonating configured user

How is the MSI and Transform setup?
Point to Network Share? Content Repo?

Re: Error impersonating configured user

Are you running ZCM 11.1?
If so, I would recommend using Dynamic Administrator and defining a
Credential Vault user who has access to the share. (UNC Required)

Re: Error impersonating configured user

we are not at 11.1 so no credential vault.

Is there any trick to let the dynamic administrator have access to the files, they are on a DFS share. The bundle is written with a UNC path. Are there any permissions I could grant to the source files? does the dnyamic admin even try to connect?


Could you point me to a document on recommended methods for deploying apps when the source code is not uploaded to the zcm server?

Re: Error impersonating configured user

Sorry its probably not much help, but before 11.1 we used to have to use 2 steps to get this to work:

1. Copy the files from the network share as the user and put them in c:\Temp (so that you have rights to the network share)
2. Run the MSI from c:\Temp as dynamic admin.

It was really messy, because it was a struggle to get it to delete the files from c:\temp afterwards. The credential vault really is a life saver, I just wish it would have been in the original release.
I know people will say "why not just put it into the content repo", but we were space limited on our zcm servers, plus the content repo corrupted on our first ZCM install so i've tried to keep stuff in there to a minimum.
