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 ?

note: i have rebooted both servers but same issue ?
