We hired a consultant to setup our SCCM server which includes the OSD process. It looks like it is integrated with MDT. Basically the imaging process that has been working well for us for the past 9 months goes like this: we use a PE boot image to boot, then we enter a password for the boot image cd, after this step, it hooks on to a web service where we enter the computer name and the collection. After this step, we're presented with a list of availabe TS to choose from and the imaging process is automated from there on.
This morning our imaging process fails and we notice that DP manager reports an error on one of the DPs that contain the package MS CCM framework. We found out that the problematic DP was brought out of commission yesterday because we closed down one of the clinics. So we deleted the package, re-created the package, copy the package to the working DPs, advertise it to the same collection but after that we still experience the same issue. The issue we have is that we get a fail to run task sequence message right after we enter the password for the boot cd.
It doesn't seem like the it can hook to the web service where we can enter the computer name to register it with CCM database. I am not really clear on what role the CCM framework play in the imaging process, but basically that's what happened. Do you know what possible go wrong here? I did restart the server but it doesn't help. In additional, I also exam the smstslog, but to my limited knowledge, I can't find anything useful.
