We are running Altiris Deployment Server 6.8 and when trying to distribute a syspreped image, the job always fails giving the following error: Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password.  The username and password we are authenticating are valid domain accounts and have administrative privileges.  The computer from which the image was taken was part of the domain, and the computer that is receiving the disk image is also part of the domain.  Any Idea as to what else could be causing the problem?

One thing I would check

start - run - secpol.msc click Security options then under Network Access make sure the sharing and security model is set to classic.

I tried that with no results.  I don't think it would have any effect since we are not using a local log on.  The account and password we are using to authenticate are domain accounts, not local ones.

I figured out the problem.  We recently updated our security policy and all of our passwords.  The script in the deployment job that mapped the drive was running with an old logon.  After updating the password, the job ran correctly.
