JSI Tip 0838. Unattended setup of SP4 fails with copy errors.

When you do an unattended SP4 setup, you get copy errors on:

Appserver.class
Context.class
Imtxas.class
Objectcontent.class
Securityproperty.class

because Cmdlines.txt and update.exe only support 8.3 file names.

Use Sp4i386.exe file from the Service Pack 4 CD, or Nt4sp4i.exe file from the web site. In the $OEM$ folder, create an SP4 folder and copy the above exe to it. The Unattend.txt file must contain:

\[Unattended\]
OemPreinstall = yes

In the $OEM$ folder, modify the Cmdlines.txt file to contain:

\[Commands\]
".\sp4\sp4i386.exe -z -u"
