Failed to connect to MDT database when deploying RRS feed

  • Question

  • When deploying clients by MDT 2012, got following error message in ZTIGather.log

    Validating connection to \\MDT-sql\MDTDeploymentShare$]LOG]!><time="16:38:56.000+000" date="08-26-2013" component="ZTIGather" context="" type="1" thread="" file="ZTIGather">
    <![LOG[Unable to connect to share: The network name cannot be found.

    If leave database share name blank in database settings, the error message in ZTIGather.log will be " no share name, may not be able to  connect to SQL" something like that.

    How to troubleshoot, Please help!

  • Can you validate that \\MDT-sql\MDTDeploymentShare$ is working (and did you set the MDT Database paths correctly)?  Drop to a command prompt and see if you can map to the share manually to prove that it works.  Sometimes it's the Share name, and sometimes you just need to fully qualify the server name.
