Task Sequence available when is NOT deployed

Recommended Posts



I have a headache with an extrange issue. I have deployed a Task Sequence time ago, this week i delete it and deployed a new one as i have done previously.

Now i still see available both. First i checked the TS status and i reviewed that is not deployed to any collection. I disabled it too but still visible for clients (PXE). 

I thinks that is cached on DP or in the Database

any suggestions?


I attach some screens

if you select the duplicate, what does the smsts.log file tell you ?


maybe someone duplicated the actual ts, moved it elsewhere in the console, and deployed it...

Hi Niall,


I duplicated this TS before and the new one was "HomeOffice - Windows 10 (1703 BUILD)" that you can see in the first capture.

I have only 18 TS and i checked everyone :( 

If i run this ghost TS it returns that "cannot be run because a package referenced by task sequence could not be found" but it don't explain which package is.

I don't know why this tasks is still available in PXE. I tried with 2 differents DPs and its visible in both.


What else can i check?
