SCCM Restart Task fails if client has SUBST-ituted drive


  • Hello!

    We have a problem - whenever we try to run task sequences which include a "restart computer" task (the default one), it fails. The apparent reason is our clients have a virtual drive "S:" mapped with the SUBST.EXE command. The SMSTS.LOG is clear on this:

    Failed to convert S: to unique volume id. Code : 0x80070005 TSManager 29/04/2010 10.38.30 2208 (0x08A0)
    TS::Utility::ConvertPathVolumesToUniqueIDs(), HRESULT=80070005 (e:\nts_sms_fre\sms\client\tasksequence\executionengine\engine.cxx,848) TSManager 29/04/2010 10.38.30 2208 (0x08A0)
    Failed to convert protected paths to unqiue ID. Error code 0x80070005 TSManager 29/04/2010 10.38.30 2208 (0x08A0)
    Failed to reboot the system. Error 0x(80070005) TSManager 29/04/2010 10.38.30 2208 (0x08A0)

    The workaround we're using is to run a SUBST /D command line prior the restart step to make it work, but i was wondering if this is an accepted bug or limit of the software...

    Many thanks in advance,
