MDT 2012 Image Deployment

Last Modified: 2013-01-30

I am attempting to install an image which I captured using imagex.

I have tried to capture the image several different way with differenet switches, such as /check and /compression maximum, etc.

The image deployment fails in the exact same spot each time.  An image of the errors is attached.

Please check http://www.minasi.com/forum/topic.asp?topic_id=33323

Johan Arwidmark is a poster on that forum. He has published many guides and how-to things.

Are you following any certain guide and do you have error free deployment of non custom images?

I found a tip in one of the forums to transmit the logs to the deployment share by editing the properties on the deployment share itself.

Right-click the deployment share and select Properties.  Click the "Rules" tab.

Add the following line:  SLShare=\\servername\share\logs

Then navigate to the deployment directory and create a new folder called "Logs."

Each time a deployment is run, logs will be transferred to the logs folder for review.

I found a few details in the logs which provided a place to start, including a path to a folder at the root of C:\ called "NoScan."  McAfee is currently installed, which creates this folder.

A few lines down in the LTIApply.log file, an access denied error appeared pointing to a file in the C:\NoScan folder.  I am in the process of removing McAfee and the file flagged in the log file under the access denied error and I will try again.

By doing exactly what I proposed above, I was able to isolate the problem to two files in the C:\NoScan directory.

Deleted the two files and removed McAfee, captured a new image and I am now deploying it.  So far, I have gotten past the spot where it was failing previously.

Since I didn't receive any meaninful replies and resolved the issue by doing my own research, I accept my own solution as well.
