PXE boot not properly mounting to Altiris eXpress share
Posted on 2008-11-19
I am using Altiris Deployment Solution 6.8 SP2 for Dell servers. I am trying to set up PXE boot and am having some problems.
With the Deployment Server installed on a Windows 2003 server in workgroup mode, the PXE image loads fine, and the automation agent is able to connect to the eXpress share and create or receive images. However, once the Deployment Server is joined to a domain, it no longer works. It gives an error at the target server console when loading PXE:
cifs_mount failed w/ return code = -13
mount error 13 - Permission denied
I looked in the event log on the server with the eXpress share, and found:
Event id 529
Unknown username or password.
I reconfigured the PXE boot image to use a domain user and password that has access to that share and verified I entered the password correctly. The userid showing up in the event log error is the correct one.
What could I be doing wrong?
Thanks in advance.
