Unable to Unassign SMS Client error

I am trying to create an image using the SMS Image capture wizard.  When I complete the wizard and start the image capture, I get an error imeediately saying "Unable to unassign SMS Client".  I'm logged into the machine as the local administrator, and the machine has been removed from the domain per what I read in the documentation.

How do I resolve this error?

Hi gvargo

Firstly do you have Sysprep directory sitting on your C:\
Basically before starting Sysprep you need to
Run the SMS Client i.e. \\SMSSERVER\SMSClient\i386\CCMSETUP.exe CCMALLOWSILENTREBOOT=0
Reboot your machine, on startup stop the SMS Service i.e. NET STOP CCMEXEC
Remove any Certificates by using CCMDELCERT.EXE found in the Systems Management Server 2003 Toolkit 2 - http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sms/2003/downloads/tools/toolkit.mspx
Then place your OS Capture CD in and follow the steps on completion it will start SYSPREP and shutdown the machine.
When you reboot remember to boot from the OS Capture CD and let it complete its course.

And that should be it.

Cheers

Are you capturing Windows Vista? then User Account Control is a causing this.

=> start OSDICW with "run as administrator"
