Is there a deployimagehandler.log on the client?
There is Frank.
All seems to go fine until this:

I have changed the serve name parameter but it is correct in the actual log.
Just found a MaptoPreferredHandler.log file and this is more helpful. It seems it cannot map the drive!
Yet I can if I do that in a command prompt myself.
Have you set up the core as a preferred server? Have you tested the credentials used to ensure it has rights?
Yes. Core server is a preferred server.
Currently using my credentials to get it working. The test credentials button on the preferred server setup is sucessful.
Just found that the http authentication is failing. Will take a look at that!
I think I may have found the issue but am unsure how to fix it.
To assist in our DR we have a drive on this server presented from our SAN which is then replicated to our DR SAN.
All our deployment files are on this drive but obviously that drive is outside the normal LANDesk web structure.
Is there a document anywahere that explains how to re-direct the web sites to the folder on the presented disk?
Or one that shows how to add a new directory into the LANDesk web structure?
Well I am a little lost.
I can use a map drive command n the template and this maps to the image location fine.
It is only when the deploy image task tries to run that I get the failed message.
Really not sure what is going on here. I have checked all the permissions against the folders and they seem to be correct.
I can browse to them via HTTP and UNC now..
Anyone any other thoughts?
Do not map to the drive using the MAP Drive action. Just call the executable and put the UNC path to the image file. Make sure the path is fully qualified and that you created the preferred server using the FQDN. Mapping to it will create issues, just allow the preferred server utility to get you there.
This happened to me after updating to SP1 last Thursday. I needed to redeploy my PXE representatives in order for them to get the new Win8 kernel. It's kind of hard to extrapolate that from not being able to map to a drive, but give it a try and let me know if this works for you.
Many thanks for the reply. I have tried redeploying the PXE representative as you sugested.
Unfortunatley I am still getting the same error.
Everything is fine until it comes to the deploy image task.
I have removed teh map drive task and put in the full URL as sugessted by bnelson but this still fails.
In the MaptoPreferredHandler.log I am getting errors 1219, 2250 and 86. All relating to mapping a drive to the preferred server.
I am guessing this is a permissions issue but I cannot figure out where.
This is a clean install of LDMS with the only difference being that the location of our deployment files is on a seperate drive.
I am going to raise a support call for this as I need to get this wiorking soon!!
I think it is pretty much the same as yours.
But I have it working now!
Well, to a point. It is deploying the image but when it reaches HII it fails. It seems there is no C: drive at this point for it to copy the files to. But if I reboot the PC it boots into Windows fine so there is a c drive!
Would this be my image at fault here?
You are missing a few tools. I will post a template that should help in a little bit.
Excellent. Many thanks for your help.
I will give these a try and let you know how it goes.
