Secure Network Issue - Machine is not getting IP


  • Hello Everyone,

    We are setting up windows 10 Migration infra for one of our clients. It went through without any issues on a regular network, however, we were asked to test the same on the secured network as well.

    Unfortunately, it did not work the secured network so called 802.1x, this is the first time we have come across this scenario.


    In our deployment scenario, we have an MDT Server only. We are initiating the migration task sequence deployment (On Windows 7 machine- in OS mode) by accessing the deployment share over the network via LTIApply.wsf under script folder.

    Everything works fine until the machine is rebooted to PE mode. Once the machine gets into PE mode it does not get the IP address due to the secure network. After going through multiple blogs below are the things that we tried, but no luck till now.


    1.      WinPE Generated adding additional features( IEEE 802.1x, .Net Framework)

    2.      Injected Windows6.1-KB972831-x64.msu in WinPE

    3.      Automated script to start service dot3svc

    4.      Exported Root certificate from existing client machine and added in WinPE through Script

    5.      Included LAN profile in WinPE, which was extracted from existing Client.


    I have no clues what else I can try to get this working. Please let me know if anyone of you has gone through the same or ever worked on the same kind of scenario.


    Please let me know if something else needs to be in place to get this working
