    Hi Atolica,

    I am not sure if that is the issue. what does the log say? – c:Documets and SettingsusernameLocals~1TempDeployUpdates_x86.log

    Thanks,

    Ben

    Hi Atolica,

    Your name resolution issue is most likely caused by a name resolution issue.

    The wizard is trying to execute this WMI query:

    Select * from Win32_PingStatus Where Address = ‘HARDKORN’

    It could be that WMI isn’t working, or that there is some local name resolution issue.

    Thanks,

    Ben

    Yes – you can install MDT 2008 over the original release of MDT – the deployment workbench will be upgraded and the next time you enter the deployment workbench and access the Distribution Point – MDT 2008 will prompt you to update the Distribution Point with new scripts and files (you are given the opportunity to backup the original files first).

    Michael Niehaus has done a number of MDT 2008 upgrade releated posts on his personal blog at http://blogs.technet.com/mniehaus/ that are excellent especially if you are upgrading ZTI based installations that use SMS or SCCM2007

    Hi

    I updated to MDT 2008 and tried to build a new deployment point. The difference is that comparing to the previous version, this doesn’t work. The server name(in this case my pc named HARDKORN) is not recognized. I get a red exclamation mark "Server is invalid or unreachable". This didn’t come up with the previous version. None of the deployment point types work.

    Can you help me out here?

    Hi. I can’t seem to find any info on ZTIStorageDriversSysprep.wsf being fixed in this update, but it seems you have added the "or Type = ‘hdc’" without mentioning it in the script’s revision history nor the release notes for Update 1.

    Does this mean that I can start using the StorageDriverSysPrepGroup property when building my image instead of having to put the drivers in $OEM$ and editing sysprep.inf manually? I’m using LTI to build and deploy Windows XP SP3.

    Sorry, I posted that in the wrong place. My comments are refering to MDT 2008 Update 1.

    Hi Colin,

    BDD is dead – there will be no further developement work carried out on it. MDT is the futuer and customers should be encouraged to use it. If they do not have BDD or MDT they should only go MDT. If they have BDD you should encourage them to go to MDT. MDT will work with SCCM and will have further dev work to offer more features and funcitonality.

    Obviously this is not the ‘offical word’ for that you need the deployent team blog link on the left hand side.

    Hi Richard,

    The error you are getting is probably due to the WIM still being mounted.  If you unmount the boot.wim are you still getting the original error message?

    Thanks,

    Ben

    Can I install MDT 2008 on top of my existing MDT 1.0?  What happens to my deployment workbench and everything I have built out?

  10. Joerg says:

    Anyone aware of any current (or) future books being published by MSFT or other vendors that will document MDT in more detail?  

  11. Atolica says:

    Hi Ben

    I am asking for your expertise again.

    I am running the latest MDD2008  and nothing works as it should be. The deployment point(Media) update process hangs and I get: "An unexpected error occurred while updating the deployment point.  IMAGEX capture failed, rc=2 See c:Documets and SettingsusernameLocals~1TempDeployUpdates_x86.log for more information.

    I checked the log file, googled a little bit and stumbled upon a forum where someone said to disable "8.3 Name Creation". No go.

    I’m running MDT 2008 under Windows XP SP3 build 5508. I’m thinking this might be the cause as "Forefront Client Security Filter Manager QFE for Windows XP/SP2(KB914882) can’t be installed under XP+SP3.

    Is this the case? Do I have to get back to SP2?

  12. Tobias says:

    Image Capture fails on german Windows Vista. Seems there is a localization bug in the ZTIBCDUtility.vbs. It checks for the pattern "sucessfully" using regexp to make sure bcdedit has run without errors. Unfortunatly bcdedit says "erfolgreich" when running on a german installation. Is there a supported fix?

  13. Richard Shaw says:

    Can anyone help me with this error?

    "An unexpected error occurred while updating the deployment point.

    PEIMG failed, rc=1603. See <locaction> for more information."

    So I checked the log file and this is what i found:

    How do you guys position MDT vs BDD?  I’m working on an MCITP exam study guide and the 70-624 content focuses on the older BDD and SMS 2003 OSD bits.  I’m looking for the official word to include in the text.
