    problem with Variables in COPY FILE action

    Specialist

      I am working within the SYSTEM CONFIGURATION section of provisioning on LDMS 9.5 unpatched.  I need a FILE COPY action to run as one of the last steps in provisioning.  The file that I want to copy to the local disk is a .TBI backup of the original image which was written to a network share early in provisioning.  I am using a variable for the .TBI that is created:

       

      %ImageShare%%imagepath%%ldDeviceID%.tbi

       

      when I enter this same variable in the SOURCE PATH & FILE NAME part of the provisioning action, I get the following error message:

       

      "The source path and file name is blank or invalid.  Type a valid source path and file name."

       

      If I hard-code the initial part of the string and include the variable at the end like this:

       

      \\hostname\path\%ldDeviceID%.tbi

       

      it seems to work.

       

       

      I was under the assumption that support for variables was universal, but I guess not.  Is there any documentation of where variables don't work?
