Specify which deployment share to use


  • Hi,


    I am hoping that someone can help with my MDT multisite issue?


    Error: "Specify which Deployment Share to use."


     I have set up MDT Multisite with one central server with MDT installed and DFS R replicating Deployment Share to 2 severs with WDS configured.


    MDT installed on central server in Data Centre

    DFS - R replicating Deployment Share to WDS servers in Milan and Prague.

    Milan works fine, but when deploying to Prague, Deployment Wizard  asks to "Specify which Deployment Share to use." When I manually enter the path to the DS it works fine.


    I am using Default Gateway property to specify path to Deployment Share.





    Priority=DefaultGateway, Default

















    Any advise would be much appreciated.

  • I am not sure what folders DFS is replicating exactly, but you may need to import the DeploymentShare > Boot > LiteTouchPE_x86.wim or  LiteTouchPE_x64.wim file into the WDS console at the Prague location. Also try using FQDN or IP for the DeployRoot if there is some kind of DNS issue at that location.

  • Hi dlofstedt,

    Thanks for the reply.

    DFS is replicating everything in the DeploymentShare folder. I have already imported the LiteTouch.wim file to the WDS server in Prague. 

    Let me test the FQDN / IP for DeployRoot and report back.

    Thanks again.
