    Searching for tab "OS Deployment" in Services

    Rookie

      Hey,

       

      I'm looking for a  solution to deploy images from a PC to other PCs over Network.

      We allready have a working Landesk coreserver, and i notice that landesk supports Imaging und deploy OS.

      I searched a realy long time till i find this dokumentation that realy helps me understanding how to beginn.

       

      Now i have a Problem, in that document on page 14 there's an Picture, showing the Tab OS Deployment.

       

      I use Landesk 9.0 and there is no Tab "OS Deployment", how can i Fix that Problem?

       

      Please Help

          In your remote console go to Tools >  Distribution > OS Deployment. This will open a small window at the bottom of your console for OS Deployment. OR if you have your toolbox open in the console its under distribution there as well.

            Also make sure that the user that you're logged into the console has the LANDesk Administrator role. If not then make sure that the role that your user account has then has access to the OSD section.

              Hello,

              I dont have a remote console to test with, but it may be that this option is only seen if you are logged onto the core server iteself under the Configure | Services option - it contains the PXE Holding Queue and F8 timeout options.

              Regards

                In order for that tab to show up, your console needs access to the \\coreserver\ldmain\landesk\files\osdrep.msi file.

                 

                Check to see if you can browse to it using the same user account you are using to log into the console.

                 

                When Configure Services (svccfg.exe) runs, it looks for the OSDREP.MSI file at that path.   If it is missing, or due to permissions it cannot read it, the tab will not be displayed.

                 

                You can quickly verify if this is the issue by looking at the following log file:

                 

                \Program Files (x86)\LANDesk\ManagementSuite\Log\svccfg.log

                 

                If it is working correctly it writes 2 lines like this:

                Mon, 18 Jul 2011 20:16:37 Path to check for OSD is \
                Mon, 18 Jul 2011 20:16:37 Returned attributes on file are 20

                 

                If it is NOT working correctly it writes a line like this:

                Mon, 18 Jul 2011 22:15:48 Path to check for OSD is \

                Mon, 18 Jul 2011 22:15:48 Returned attributes on file are FFFFFFFF

                 

                I hope this helps!
