Credential error in Microsoft Deployment Server

I have a deployment server running Server 2008 R2 with Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2013.

The C: drive was recently lost in a VMWare incident, and I have just rebuilt it and restored the deployment share.

Since rebuilding the server's C: drive, I get the "Invalid Credentials: The network name cannot be found."

The deployment share is visible and accessible on the network. The user account is active and the password I am using is correct. The bootstrap.ini contains "DeployRoot=\\DeploymentServerName".

Anyone have any idea why I am getting this message?

Is this when pxe booting? If so then re-generate the boot image.

No good. I rebuilt the boot image and it is still returning the following error.

"A connection to the deployment share could not be made. Connection OK. Possible Cause: Invalid Credentials."

I am able to log into the server using the same username and password that I am using in the PXE boot deployment. So I know the account name and PW are good. The account is a domain admin so it definitely has the rights required for the task.

Can anyone help me figure this one out? I have a tech who's job is PC and laptop deployments and he is unable to do much of anything until I get this resolved.

Is this error occurring when you are pxe booting to the deployment share? Do you have credentials set in customsettings.ini?

This is how I ended up getting around the authentication issue on my old Windows deployment server.
