We ran an older version of the optimization tool on one of our images and now Cylance is quarantining a nsudo.exe file. Is anyone aware of what this file's purpose is and why it seems to run on login?

Feb 25, 2022

Nsudo was used to elevate to disable some services. It was only leveraged during optimize and finalize.
The productized version no longer uses it.

I have upgraded a master template, running W10 v1909 to v20H2. OSOT was run to finalize the master template on the previous version. Which OSOT should I apply to the template, now that it is upgraded. Stay with the previous one, since the template had already been optimized/generalized with it or go through the same process, this time with the newest version of OSOT.

So now that this is an official part of Horizon, how do we get help? Do we have to open a support ticket? I updated my MDT deployment with the new version and now it fails at the optimize step every time and I can't determine why.

GSS ticket is the way forward. That being said, it looks like the team that published OSOT renamed the executable to _2111, change that back to (2111) and everything should work fine.

Hilko,
I'm having the exact problem as Norsedakton. I don't understand your comment. If I change \DeploymentShare\VMWare\OSOT\VMwareHorizonOSOptimizationTool-x86_64-1.0_2111.exe to \DeploymentShare\VMWare\OSOT\VMwareHorizonOSOptimizationTool-x86_64-1.0(2111).exe the problem remains - Failed to run the last action: Optimize. Execution of task sequence failed.

I was successfully using this process under v2107, but upon upgrading all files to v2111 this problem has taken root.

With the updated download you shouldn’t rename the file.
But what you should do is remove and re-add all OSOT plugin items to the tasksequence, or create a new tasksequence from the updated template.
