Windows PE ignoring Bootstrap.ini RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have 3 Linked Deployment  share. All was good, and worked perfectly.

    I tried to add  fourth share. But something went wrong. 

    First of all 
    I updated my MDT to 6.2.5019.0
    and install ADB 8.1 update
    Then I edited my bootstrap.ini

    [Settings]
    Priority=DefaultGateway,Default
    [DefaultGateway]
    192.168.1.1=DS1
    192.168.2.1=DS2
    192.168.3.1=DS3
    192.168.4.1=DS4
    192.168.5.1=DS5
    192.168.6.1=DS6
    192.168.7.1=DS7
    192.168.8.1=DS8
    192.168.9.1=DS9
    192.168.10.1=DS10

    [DS1]
    DeployRoot=\\192.168.1.200\DS1$

    [DS2]
    DeployRoot=\\192.168.2.200\DS2$

    [DS3]
    DeployRoot=\\192.168.3.200\DS3$

    [DS4]
    DeployRoot=\\192.168.4.200\DS4$

    [DS5]
    DeployRoot=\\192.168.5.200\DS5$

    [DS6]
    DeployRoot=\\192.168.3.200\ds3$

    [DS7]
    DeployRoot=\\192.168.3.200\ds3$

    [DS8]
    DeployRoot=\\192.168.3.200\ds3$

    [DS9]
    DeployRoot=\\192.168.3.200\ds3$

    [DS10]
    DeployRoot=\\192.168.6.200\ds6$

    [Default]
    SkipBDDwelcome=YES
    UserDomain=corp.viamonstra.com
    UserID=admin
    UserPassword=admin

    Also I edited customsettings.ini

    Then I created Linked Deployement Share using Advanced Settings and also copy bootstrap and customsettins to 
    new LDS \\192.168.6.200\ds6$ from main DS \\192.168.1.200\DS1$
    Then I tried to upfate LDS but forced error.


    I tried replace,megre options to updating my new LDS but still error.

    I tried to copy my DS1 to DS6 fully, regenereted boot images again and again.

    then i have started to investigate problem :

    All shares work good,just DS6, my new one, has errors. 
    When I try to boot from iso or wim file windows Pe doesnt see deployroot and offers me to input deploy path manualy
    Lets see the logs files

    DS6

    ZTIGather.log

    As we see lines have to have vaules, here we dont have it

    ------ Processing the [DS6] section ------ ZTIGather 13.04.2015 10:08:02 0 (0x0000)
    ------ Processing the [DEFAULT] section ------ ZTIGather 13.04.2015 10:08:02 0 (0x0000)

    I checked Bootstrap.ini from 

    x:\deploy\screpts and It has vaules to Gateway 

    192.168.10.1=DS10

    [DS10]
    DeployRoot=\\192.168.6.200\ds6$

    But why Windows PE doents see it?

    BDD.log says from tested PC

    No LocationServer.xml file was found, so no additonal DeployRoot pane initialization is required. Wizard 13.04.2015 13:23:07 0 (0x0000)


    wizard.log says from tested PC

    FindFile: The file LocationServer.xml could not be found in any standard locations. Wizard 13.04.2015 13:23:07 0 (0x0000)
    No LocationServer.xml file was found, so no additonal DeployRoot pane initialization is required. Wizard 13.04.2015 13:23:07 0 (0x0000)


    But I dont want to use locationservers.xml, previous logs shows same messages.

    I hope you understand my question. Thank you for your answers.

  • I don't understand the problem here. Is your problem on the client side ( You include a ztigather.log client log ), or is the problem on the server with replication?

    There are several problems with replication that can be caused by bad configuration or permissions. Try manually copying files to verify permissions.

    IF the problem is on the client side, please copy your bdd.log file to a public site like onedrive and share the link.
