Using RIS on Windows 2003 Server to server Vista Images
Posted on 2007-11-29
I'm running RIS on a Windows 2003 Server and I'm using Remote Installation Preparation Wizard (RIPrep.exe) on a Windows Vista (Business) machine to create a distribution image.
RIPrep.exe runs fine but after selecting the RIS server, i get a pop up that says:
"The RIS server to which you are attempting to post this installation does not
contain the correct CD-based image. The version of the CD-based image on the
server must match the version of the system you are attempting to image
[Version 6.0 Build 6000, Language English]. Please either select a different RIS
server to post this installation to or add the corresponding CD-based image to the
current RIS server."
Can someone interpret this? Do I need to install the Vista image into the image directory of the RIS server or do I need to run RIS on a Windows 2007 server?.
I'd prefer using the existing Windows 2003 RIS server.
