      Description

      We are trying to install Windows Puppet agent using the unattend.xml as listed below. The installation is failing with error code 0X643 and I can see errors in the Windows Event viewer. When I copy paste the same command on the Windows Command prompt after windows installation is completed, it is working fine.

      <RunSynchronousCommand wcm:action="add">
      <Description>Install Puppet Agent from razor server</Description>
      <Order>2</Order>
      <Path>msiexec /i \\172.28.10.179\razor\puppet-agent\windows\puppet-3.6.2.msi /qn PUPPET_MASTER_SERVER=username PUPPET_AGENT_CERTNAME=agent-windowsvm4 PUPPET_AGENT_ACCOUNT_USER=Administrator PUPPET_AGENT_ACCOUNT_PASSWORD=xxxxx</Path>
      </RunSynchronousCommand>

      Installation of puppet version 3.3.2 works fine from unattend aswell as from power-shell

      Error in the event viewer show Product: Puppet – Error 26405. Failed to grant 'logon as service' right to user. (-2147023564 Administrator)

      MSI Installation log file is attached.
