MDT 2012 : Unable to mount the WIM, so the update process cannot continue (RpcCommAddImage:(425) Received an unrecognized message id: 0xd0000022)
Wednesday, October 03, 2012 8:41 PM
I'm trying to "Update Deployment Share" in Deployment Workbench (2012).
It fails with "Unable to mount the WIM, so the update process cannot continue"
I have checked the following:
- the file (winpe.wim) exists
- the file is not read only
- I am running as an administrator and have full rights (UAC is disabled)
If I run ImageX /mount with reference to this file it gets to 100% and also fails
The error it shows is :
"Error mounting image."
"Access is denied"
I have full rights to the source and destination locations (so it can't be file permissions)
If I specify the /logfile option with imagex I get :
 [INFO] Mounting new image.wim <and then the source and destination locations>
 [INFO] WimServ process started for guid:<guid>. Id: 3968
 RpcCommAddImage:(425) Received an unrecognized message id: 0xd0000022
 WIMMountImageHandle:(956): Received an unregognized message id: 0xd0000022
- I've done a "repair" on the AIK etc.
I also check user rights for "Manage Auditing and Security log" (which I'd seen in another post as possibly relevant) and confirmed my account has those rights.
I've run process monitor but it doesn't show any sign of "Access Denied" and I can't see any obvious cause for failure.
Have used dir /r to check for alternative data streams in the file - none exist.
I'm struggling to know what else to try to fix this - any suggestions ?!
Imagex.exe and the associated wimgapi.dll that came with the AIK show as Version: 6.1.7600.16385

had exactly the same problem after a lockdown script (in lieu of GPO) was applied to an MDT server. After much searching through the script i found thsi command:
ntrights.exe -u "Administrators" -r SeChangeNotifyPrivilege
applied "ntrights.exe -u "Administrators" +r SeChangeNotifyPrivilege" and all worked again
