  • Question

  • I've been all through this thread, in fact you'll even find that it worked more me at one time.. now the problem is back and I can't get it to go away:
    http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/itprovistadeployment/thread/1c2a306d-e38d-4347-8761-3810513a139e

    I'm trying to capture an XP sp3 referance machine
    Where \\SERVERNAME\ShareName has been replaced in the BDD.log:
    ---------------------
    About to run command: MSHTA.exe "\\SERVERNAME\ShareName\Scripts\Wizard.hta " /definition:DeployWiz_Definition_ENU.xml LiteTouch
    Property definition is now = DeployWiz_Definition_ENU.xml Wizard
    Microsoft Deployment Toolkit version: 5.0.1641.0 Wizard
    Not Wizard = False Wizard
    Property WizardComplete is now = N Wizard
     Open Control File: Applications Wizard
    Property WizardComplete is now = Y Wizard
    Validating connection to \\SERVERNAME\ShareName  LiteTouch
    Already connected to server SERVERNAME as that is where this script is running from. LiteTouch
    DestinationDisk and DestinationPartition are not set, reading from TS.XML LiteTouch
    Property DestinationDisk is now = 0 LiteTouch
    Property DestinationPartition is now = 1 LiteTouch
    Property OSDComputerName is now = img00001 LiteTouch
    Validating connection to \\SERVERNAME\ShareName  LiteTouch
    Found Existing UNC Path   = \\SERVERNAME\ShareName  LiteTouch
    Unable to connect to \\SERVERNAME\ShareName .  Sleeping for 5 seconds. LiteTouch

    Found Existing UNC Path   = \\SERVERNAME\ShareName  LiteTouch
    Unable to connect to \\SERVERNAME\ShareName .  Sleeping for 10 seconds. LiteTouch
    Found Existing UNC Path   = \\SERVERNAME\ShareName  LiteTouch
    Unable to connect to \\SERVERNAME\ShareName .  Sleeping for 15 seconds. LiteTouch
    Found Existing UNC Path   = \\SERVERNAME\ShareName  LiteTouch
    Unable to connect to \\SERVERNAME\ShareName .  Sleeping for 20 seconds. LiteTouch
    Found Existing UNC Path   = \\SERVERNAME\ShareName  LiteTouch
    Unable to connect to \\SERVERNAME\ShareName .  Sleeping for 25 seconds. LiteTouch
    Found Existing UNC Path   = \\SERVERNAME\ShareName  LiteTouch
    ERROR - Unable to map a network drive to \\SERVERNAME\ShareName . LiteTouch
    Unable to connect to \\SERVERNAME\ShareName .
    Connection OK. Possible cause: invalid credentials. LiteTouch
    FAILURE ( 5201 ): A connection to the deployment share (\\SERVERNAME\ShareName ) could not be made.  The deployment will not proceed. LiteTouch
    --------------------

    I have tried by running with this batch as suggested (both with servername and Server IP address)

    @echo off
    cls
    Echo MDT Task Sequencer Started...
    pushd \\server\share
    \\server\share Scripts\LiteTouch.vbs

    I found this to work just great until it suddenly gave up on me. I don't know what I did!  I've had to run this  batch with the machine still in the domain, logged in as the user I use in bootstrap.ini -not ideal but it worked
    The BDD.log hums along just great. It's connected to the share and processing along.  and then hits this wall.
       I was in the process of moving settings from customsettings.ini/sysprep.inf into the Capture Role. it appears that that role is being run properly as I read the bddlog.  Unfortunately I moved so much that I can't think of what I may have done to cause this.
    Maybe If I knew wat was being processed at this stage I could trouble shoot better.  -It apears to be hitting my capture task sequence TS.XML.
    FYI I have also updated the "multiple connections" patch, I can Deploy from an easlier captured image just fine.  It seems to be limited ot the capture sequence.

  • try indeed FQDN

    Change it where you specify to the path to store the captured wim file

    change it as well in your bootstrap.ini

    ps: if you modify your bootstrap.ini you need to create a new winpe cd

  • Hot dang that was it.  Feeling stupid because that was mentioned in the other thread and I didn't catch it (so simple!).  Wasted weekend but I'm glad it over!

    Thanks all
