DSS 1.7.6 Problem with NBI 10.12.2 and 10.12.3 cannot type User/pw

Hi DSS Guys

Having Problems at different sites with different Hardware & different Server-OS versions NetBooting with 10.12.x Sierra:

NBI 10.12.2 or 10.12.3 is coming up DSS Login Screen shows up nicely, BUT at the Login prompt i cannot type Username & Password (the keys are wrong: "dsadmin" comes as "dsqd,in" rubish and the number keys on the Apple Keyboard (Aluminium with Cable) don't work at all - same goes for the MBP Keyobard ???

Language is set to english in the NBI

Server Hardware tried:
- Mac Mini 2012 Server, macOS 10.12.3, Server.app 5.2, DSS 1.7.6
- Mac Pro 2010 Server, OSX-10.10.5, Server.app 5.0.15, DSS 1.7.6

Clients Hardware:
- newest MacBook Pro 15" TouchBar
- Mac Pro 2013 TrashCan
- iMac 27" 5K 2015
- iMac 21,5" Retina 4K 2015

With all configurations the other NetBoot Images work perfectly e.g NBI 10.11.6 - same Servers, same Clients
All the NBI's where created with VMware VMs 10.10.5, 10.11.6, 10.12.2, 10.12.3

What could be the Problem here ?

Thank You & cheers

Mik

This smells awfully like someone is using a French input (azerty instead of qwerty). I know that mixing languages which I did on a course played havoc with the Mac I was using. It was a few years ago and so don't really remember it but the Mac has a language and there is also a keyboard input language. These do not have to be the same and you would have had the results you were getting if this was the case.

Thank You fiavvek

Nope, that's not the Problem - I've checked both locations, the settings are EN english

/Library/Preferences/.GlobalPreferences.plist
/private/var/log/CDIS.custom

I'm seeing the same thing on 11" 2012.2013,2015 and 13" 2012,2013, 2015 MacBook Airs. We rolled back to a 10.11.x NBI.

Hi Claven

...did try to solve it and found a workaround by just entering the DeployStudioAdmin-Username & Password in the NBI to automatically come up with the DSS Window.
the problem of the typing remains though - if you want to create an new image you have to learn the French AZERTY Keyobard in your mind ;-)

Hi Everybody

the problem remains, Keyboard Language Bug - but I found a better Workaround:
If You do NOT specify the Language while creating the macOS 10.12.x NetBoot Image with the "DeployStudioServer Preference Panel" but instead choose "curren" and just switch the macOS Finder to the language you want (english) the it works as usual ;-)
