Network Share Credentials Problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all - I have PXE boot enabled on all the PCs in my organization so I can image machines in place. In my bootstrap.ini file I have the DefaultGateway VLAN for the IT area defined with UserID and UserPassword set so when machines get imaged back in our area, we don't have to enter a username or password. However, in the rest of the organization, the User Credentials box to connect to the deployment share appears to prevent accidental or unauthorized deployments.

    This method works great, but something odd happens when a standard user enters their credentials and tries to proceed. The User Credentials window disappears and nothing happens. It just hangs. I have the permissions for the deployment share set to Domain Admins - Full Control, mdt_build (MDT service account) - Read & Execute, List Folder Contents and Read. Any idea what might be causing this?

    Here's a copy of my bootstrap.ini file:

    [Settings]
    Priority=DefaultGateway, Default

    [DefaultGateway]
    10.1.30.1=ImageDeployment

    [ImageDeployment]
    UserID=mdt_build
    UserPassword=password

    [Default]
    DeployRoot=\\MDTServer\MDTProductionShare$
    UserDomain=mydomain

    KeyboardLocale=en-US

  • I don't think this bootstrap.ini section is formatted properly.

    Shouldn't it be something like:

    [Settings]
     Priority=DefaultGateway, Default
    
     [10.1.30.1]
     UserID=mdt_build
     UserPassword=password
    
     [Default]
    ...
