OSD TS: Single policy fails: "Failed to download Policy {XX...}

Recommended Posts

Hey guys!


I'm new here but I really enjoyed reading on this forum about troubleshooting and found many awesome guides here.


Now my first post. Didn't find anything within at least 20 hours of troubleshooting and googling without a single result.


My Lab Setup:

Server 2012 Hyper-V Host

- Server 2012 with SCCM 2012 Standalone Primary Site Server (SCCM 2012 SP1 CU2)

- Server 2012 with SQL Server 2012 SP1

- Server 2012 as Domain Controller, DHCP Server, DNS Server etc.


Installed roles on the SCCM:

- Application Catalog web service point

- Application Catalog website point

- Component server

- Distribution point

- Endpoint Protection point

- Management point

- Site server

- Site system

- Sofware update point

- State migration point


I created a build and capture TS according to this post: http://www.windows-noob.com/forums/index.php?/topic/6353-using-system-center-2012-configuration-manager-part-7-build-and-capture-windows-7-x64-sp1/


The virtual client boots into PXE and I get to the list of the task sequences.

After selecting one of it, it says checking dependencies, etc. and after about 20 seconds I get the error screen attached.




I also attached the client's smsts log.


The Task sequences were created with the new PXE images and with SP1. CU2 was installed after.

The server is configured to use HTTP.


Any help and/or suggestions would be appreciated :)


Greetings from Germany

Some news:


When I start the same task sequence, which fails while in PXE Boot, via the Software Center on a Windows 7 Client. The OS Deploy and Capture task sequence starts, reboots client into pxe, goes on and finishes correctly.


I attached the log. I didn't find any Policy checks in there.

Are they checked before the client boots into PXE or not being checked at all?


Gotta have a look into TSAgent log before reboot...


I also tested creating a totally simple custom task sequence with only on command line "pause" in it.

Started it in PXE mode and it also fails with policy error... :/

Double checked already 2 weeks ago, if that update was installed - it isn't.


It also fixes only the failed check for the content location on a distribution point.


Not any fixed policy errors mentioned.


But thanks for the contribution.

Any other suggestions?
