  1. I fixed it for now by changing my network adaptor on VMWare from VMXNET3 to E1000E. It now owrks without issues.
  2. Back to square one. It now takes 30minutes just to download the .wim What logs files and events can I refer to for troubleshooting? I cleared required PXE deployments. I updated the distribution points, default boot images and mine. SMSPXE.txt
  3. I think I solved it. I made the RamDiskTFTPBlockSize lower than normal...
  4. Hi gents. I'm pulling my hair out, whole of last week and this week I'm using OSD to deploy PC's for a new contract. Few hours ago all stopped working, any PC or laptop, intel, hp, lenovo. All fail with this error. Nothing on my environment changed. Some research takes me to the March 2019 CU update. It is not installed on my server. Both these registry keys were set back to default with no difference on the outcome. RamDiskTFTPBlockSize RamDiskTFTPWindowSize I also tried this suggestion: https://andys-tech.blog/2019/03/wds-required-device-isnt-connected
  5. Hi all, I need some help please. I would like to change the default HP logo, the one during boot. According to this article I need to have a logo file and copy it to their partition and it should work. https://support.hp.com/za-en/document/c01646879 In my TS I created this additional partition - see attached. 1. Is this correct? 2. How do I create a sub folder and copy my logo file to this hidden partition? 3. Is my layout correct, refer to attached "UEFI Layout"?
  6. I would also like to know how to do this during OSD. If I deploy this using GPO the standard users are prompted to enable UAC to run any built in app, like calculator.
  7. I did do permissions on the specific OU. Will be trying this - https://eddiejackson.net/wp/?p=16416 Referring to this unanswered post - The computer already exists in AD, how can I handle this then.
  8.

  9. This is what I get. I did two machine at the same time, one joined and other didn't 09/06/2019 13:09:54:216 unicodePwd = Account exists, resetting password: <SomePassword> 09/06/2019 13:09:54:216 NetpModifyComputerObjectInDs: Attribute values to set: 09/06/2019 13:09:54:216 unicodePwd = <SomePassword> 09/06/2019 13:09:54:216 NetpMapGetLdapExtendedError: Parsed [0x5] from server extended error string: 00000005: SecErr: DSID-031A1256, problem 4003 (INSUFF_ACCESS_RIGHTS), data 0 09/06/2019 13:09:54:216 NetpModifyComputerObjectInDs: ldap_modify_s
  10. Thanks, I managed to find some articles and it made a big difference.
  11. Don't want to high jack, but I'm interested, why would you want to HTTPS PXE deployments? Are you doing it over WAN or internet?
  12. Good day everyone. I'm experiencing a weird issue lately, in my TS under network configuration I have domain join enabled, everything setup to the correct OU etc. If I do a test it completes successful, apply and ok. When I go back in the settings, like immediately after the apply close and do the test again it fails. It fails with incorrect credentials / login. It was working fine for a while, I think it started after I upgraded to 1906. Is there any log file I can look at?
  13. Enabled PS on boot image. Will test this now.
  14. I have the following in a PS script but the TS fails. [string] $MacAddress = Get-WmiObject Win32_networkadapterconfiguration | where {$_.ipenabled -match "True"} | select -ExpandProperty MacAddress | select -First 1 [string[]]$TextFiles = Get-Content \\fileshare\*.txt foreach ($element in $TextFiles){ [string[]]$TextFilesSplit = $element.Split("=") [string]$MacFromArray = $TextFilesSplit[0] [string]$ComputerNameFromArray = $TextFilesSplit[1] $MacFromArray = $MacFromArray.Trim(" ") $ComputerNameFromArray = $ComputerNameFromArray.Trim(" ") if($MacAddress -eq $MacFromArray){
  15. Hi, What would be the reason why the WINPE.wim file download will be slow, it will max out on 30Mbps but the install.wim will download at 1Gbps - the network drivers are imported.
  16. Ok I'm trying this one now Still looking for one which will use mac addresses from txt file.
  17. Hi all, I need some help and it might be something easy. I have no scripting skills and tried various methods on the internet but it's not working. All I want is for the TS to ask me what computer name I want for the deployment, some sort of popup.
  18. I did something now which made it work, not entirely sure how to correct this in the TS. When I booted F12, I used DiskPart to list disk, I cleaned it and created a partition. The deployment was successful after that. So it seems that the TS isn't partitioning the disk the way it should? What can I look at?
  19. Here is the log file, I cannot think why it would be hardware, I take the exact same models and boot PXE, my test machine has no issues. smsts.log
  20. Can someone shed some light on my new issue. I have 1 testing PC where everything works fine, any other PC fails with the same error, new or used PC. There are no more volumes available for use. ApplyOperatingSystem 2019-03-19 15:25:07 1780 (0x06F4) The requested target could not be resolved to a valid volume on this computer.
