Hey guys, I searched the forums but haven't found an answer to this one. The fix for the insufficient memmory error is to boot to the wintech CD, mount the SBFS, and delete the auditlog.dat file.
My question to you is, if I use the PE disk, load it while still in windows, mount the SBFS using the Safeboot Wintech program from the PE disk (WHILE STILL BOOTED IN WINDOWS) then remove the auditlog.dat file, will this break anything?
I have heard of people removing that logfile while still booted into windows and it seems to work fine, and fixes errors but we are cautious because we haven't heard any official word about if mounting the SBFS while windows is loaded could hurt anything else. Does anyone have any insight on this? Any suggestions?
The reason that we are pursuing this is because we would like to be able to remove that data file remotely, instead of going to each PC to fix the problem as it comes along. Any help would be appreciated!
I can't say whether this is a good idea though - it seems like wild tinkering to me and if it blows up your machine then be it on your own head.
also though, of you want to mount the local SBFS in Windows, don't use the PE cd at all, just copy sbwintech.exe into your client directory and run it. Don't try to mount the actual drive though (or anyone elses drive) - that won't work and most likely will break something. You can though mount the local SBFS and break things.
again, don't use this in anger unless you've fully tested it. It's totally not what the feature was designed for.
proceed with caution, I don't see how or why it would break the machine, but I heard some reports that WinTech under PE2 was making machines unbootable - not sure why, or if this is indeed true, but it would be worrying.
Just don't try to mount a drive from a 2nd machine IF you booted up through EEPC.
Thanks for the input. I have tried this on several machines so far and have seen no issues with anything. Anyone else out there have any experience doing it this way? Any positive/negative feedback would be appreciated!
