WDS Won't start.
Posted 26 November 2011 - 10:47 PM
Now, still in lab7, I've noticed WDS is not started. When I start it, it fails telling me to look in the system event log. Looking there gives this message:
The Windows Deployment Services Server service terminated with service-specific error This shared resource does not exist..
It's correct, I don't see any of the normal shares associated with WDS

- deselect 'enable pxe' on the dp
- uninstall the windows deployment service
- re-enable PXE on the dp
- monitor the distrimgr.log and see what it says about the wds service
does that help ?

Delete the \RemoteInstall folder
reboot again (for good measure)
Enable PXE (and as part of this process WDS will be installed and configured accordingly).
All things going well - no more WDS service "starting" problems.
