hi i am wishing to upgrade my windows 2003 ris to wds but i have one issue:

currently i have the following images for xp on my ris server:

- flat xp image
- xp sp2 image
- xp sp2 & office 2003

i have just installed sp3 on my xp and run: riprep.exe successfully.

when i logon my ris server i can view all the above images and (xp sp3 & office 2003 image) successful that was just uploaded the my ris server.

question 1.  when i access 'remoteinstall' tab on master dc/aduc ris server - it lists all above images but not my: (xp sp3 & office 2003 image) - why ?

hi i think we have spoken before!!

currently my ris is not installed with wds yet.

once i have resolved my issue then i will install wds.

these images currently show in remote install tab:

- flat xp image
- xp sp2 image
- xp service pack 2 & office 2003

issue:

i have now run riprep.exe with (xp service pack 3 & office 2003) and uploaded successfully on my ris server...but when l locate the remote install tab it (does not show) this image  ?
