    That's not the important part of the log, only the result.

    I've seen several older sites where bgbisap.msi fails to install because the MSI custom action to check for free filespace fails. Funnily enough it's a check for 10MB of free space 😂 it's a custom action though so pretty sure the product team has a bug here bug our Premier Support tickets with Microsoft for this issue were all closed with "we've informed the product group and they will fix it". Seen it first in 2019 or so. Still in.

    Sadly I haven't found a better way to deal with it - frankyl I didn't want to investigate any further - except this dirty workaround:

    1. make a backup of bgbisapi.msi - YES I have done that 

    2. uninstall bgbisapi.msi by using "msiexec /x bgbisapi.msi" (sadly, I've found that uninstallation through the regular product code does not work for bgbisapi.msi :()
    this is to ensure there's no copy of the msi in the Windows Installer Cache - I don't know how I uninstall bgbisapi.msi, it's appear "This action is only valid for products that currently installed." and in the folder (%windir%\installer - Windows Installer Cache do not exist the bgbisapi.msi and the product code

    3. use InstEd! or Orca (if you're that old 😂 ) and remove the CustomAction that does the free disk space check (I think it's called CcmCheckFreeDiskSpace or something like that. Had to do that just last week on a 2107 site) - I have found  CustomAction and  CcmCheckFreeDiskSpace and it show: There is not enough available disk space on [PrimaryVolumePath] to complete this operation. Installation requires at least 10MB free disk space.

    4. save the changed MSI (and close it in InstEd, otherwise it's still in use) and run a regular "msiexec /i bgbisapi.msi" - I have to uninstall first 

    5. you might receive the Windows Installer popup that tells you the setup needs the source directory for bgbisapi.msi but it won't accept the \bin\x64 folder where bgbisapi.msi is located in. This is strange, right? Right. Click Cancel and the setup will complete successfully anyway 😂
    the MSI build process that the product team uses for bgbisapi.msi is so borked...


    Now restart your component manager (if you don't want to wait) and have a look at \logs\BgbSetup.log

    Give it a few minutes and you should see that the installation of bgbisapi.msi is started again but this time with a whole bunch of additional parameters reflecting your configmgr environment (IIS location etc) and the setup should run through fine.

    anything is possible, with powershell you can find out the info as below


    For user:

    Get-ADOrganizationalUnit -Identity $(($adUser = Get-ADUser -Identity $env:USERNAME).DistinguishedName.SubString($adUser.DistinguishedName.IndexOf("OU=")))

    For computer:

    Get-ADOrganizationalUnit -Identity $(($adComputer = Get-ADComputer -Identity $env:COMPUTERNAME).DistinguishedName.SubString($adComputer.DistinguishedName.IndexOf("OU=")))

    once you have that data, you can assign it to a task sequence variable and do whatever you want based on that variable


    Thanks :-)... but can you show me a example , i'm not sure if understand your solution ...

    I have solved that,  I have done a common Backup of MDT database from the old SQL Server and then a restore to the new sql server.

    So how are you trying to accomplish this? Have you done the export from a reference machine running 1709?  

    Yes, with the command, 

    Dism /Online /get-DefaultAppAssociations > c:\temp\defaultapps.xml

    GPO --> Group Policy: Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > File Explorer.


    I have put the file in the SYSVOL / Scripts

    Any Idea ?

    Sure, it means whitelisting the required Domains so that the computer account can access them without the proxy authentication.

    Assuming that the proxy is managed by another department in your Company, you have to open a change request with them. If you are managing the Proxy by yourself you need to check the documentation on how to apply whitelistings.

    ok, it's possible to pre-download the file from http://officecdn.microsoft.com and stream the file to the clients ?
