I've got an interesting issue with just a few devices and PDQ Deploy. Perhaps someone else has run into this issue and found a fix. Support at Admin Arsenal was unable to help me despite their best efforts.
I have several Dell Latitude 7275 laptops hooked to WD15 docks. Out of about 15, four of them experience this issue:
When I go to Deploy a package, it will eventually timeout with a message, "Target computer unreachable" .
I have to access the target manually and open the adapter properties and uncheck File and Printer Sharing. Close the properties. Re-open and recheck File and Printer Sharing.
Now, I can relaunch the deployment and it works perfectly. It will work for any subsequent deployments until the computer is restarted, then we are back to square one.
There is nothing different about these four devices as opposed to their 11 other brothers. Latest Firmware, BIOS, and drivers all installed. All running at least Win 10 build 1703. All listed in DNS (both forward and reverse zones). None of the 30 OptiPlex desktops in my domain have this issue.
I'd appreciate any insights you might be able to share.
