Can´t obtain IP address RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm running the MDT on a Virtual Machine Virtual PC...
    When PE loaded and go to User Credentials interface, I input the user name and password(I confirm the user name and password is correct), it will display error message "Invalid credentials: The network path was not found". I checked that the network driver is correct.
    I had executed a ipconfig /all command and saw an apipa address (169.x.x.x)
    can anyone help me?

  • It could also be some DNS and/or WINS issues trying to resolve the MDT Server name to an actual machine.

    From Litetouch PE, try opening up a cmd.exe window (using F8).

    THen run the command:   net.exe use * \\servername\deploymentshare$ /u:domain\user *

    Using the Server, and credentials you supplied to MDT. My guess is that it won't work, the question is why?

  • Verify the network settings of the virtual machine, so that it is bridged to a network where you have a DCHP Server
