RIS is not working

Posted on 2007-10-16

All of the sudden I can not image any of my computers anymore using RIS.
Right after I log in using my administrative username and password, I recieve the following and am prompted to restart.

Unable to display operating system (OS) choices.
The server MYSERVER cannot display OS choices.
You may not have sufficient network permissions to view the OS choices on the server, or the server might not contain any OS images.

Can someone help me get RIS working again?

    Accepted Solution

    From the document located at:

    "Problem/Error: Clients receive the following error message: Unable to display operating system (OS) choices.
    Proposed Actions/Solutions:
    "      The user that logged on using the logon screen does not have sufficient permissions to view the %Servername%\Reminst\Setup\%Lang%\Images\%FolderName%\I386\Templates subdirectory of each image. Check the permissions on these subdirectories to make sure the user can gain access to this folder.
    "      The server is supporting multiple languages and does not have any images in the language that the client selected. Use Risetup.exe to add an image to the server that supports the requested language."
