Getting error messages when deploying WIndows 2016 via MDT RRS feed

  • Question

  • Getting error messages: ZTIOSRolePS.ps1 

    ArgumentNotValid: The role, role service, or feature name is not valid: 'Web-DAV-Publishin'.  The name was not found.

    This same error happens with Web-Http-Error, 

    When I checked Windows 2016 Roles/Features, these names are not correct.

    Where do I go to modify the roles for Windows 2016?  Version 8443 is said to be compatible with Windows 2016: MDT https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/msdeployment/2016/11/14/microsoft-deployment-toolkit-8443-now-available/

  • There are 3 typos in the ServerManager.xml file.  I reported these to Microsoft years ago, but MDT v8450 & v8456 still have the errors.

    To fix the errors, you'll need to edit the Scripts\ServerManager.xml file in your deployment share.


    Change both instances of this (for MDT 8443, it is lines 2314 & 2616):

    <RoleService DisplayName='WebDAV Publishing' Id='Web-DAV-Publishin' />


    <RoleService DisplayName='WebDAV Publishing' Id='Web-DAV-Publishing' />


    Change both instances of this (for MDT 8443, it is lines 2311 & 2613):

    <RoleService DisplayName='HTTP Errors' Id='Web-HTTP-Error' />


    <RoleService DisplayName='HTTP Errors' Id='Web-HTTP-Errors' />

    "Fax Server"

    Change this one instance (for MDT 8443, it is line 2265) from:

    <RoleService DisplayName='Fax Server' Id='DNS' />


    <RoleService DisplayName='Fax Server' Id='Fax' />

    You should also copy the updated file to the Bin and Templates\Distribution\Scripts folders on the computers where you've installed the Toolkit.

  • I can confirm that this is still a bug in  MDT 8456.
    although I never ran into those issues yet, but I have corrected it !
