Cannot find deployment share RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have recently taken on the MDT development for my organisation and have inherited a system that works albeit with very limited documentation.

    We have recently put in work to migrate our infrastructure so we now have a hub and spoke system for MDT. Essentially a MDT server in our datacenter and various WDS servers out on our WAN. The data gets copied to each server via Robocopy and generally the system works well. 

    We use the customsetting.ini and bootstrap.ini to define the various default gateways for the WDS boxes and the DeployRoot shares for each.

    This generally works very well and have had no issues, but one of our sites consistently has issues where the deployment share cannot be found and will just display X:\Deploy. This is via PXE from the clients. We have checked the obvious, regenerated the boot images, checked the above settings.

    We can ping the share and server from the client machine, and our techs can enter the deployment share manually and carry on with the build, but it is extremely frustrating to keep them this issue with no pattern. 

    The deployment works everytime inside a VM which is also on the same deployment network as the clients. 

    Can anyone suggest any possible reasons and or fixes?
