I've got LanDesk 8.6 and I'm trying to do some OS deployments.
We've run into this problem before and have always stumbled into a solution, but never really knew what we did to resolve the problem. It might actually be two different problems, I don't know.
We've been using all DOS mode PXE stuff including capture and deploy scripts. I created a fairly standard XP image, sysprepped it and then did my capture script. Worked just fine, the file validates successfully using the LANDesk (terabyte) imaging suite. I captured in DOS and I did a validate with ImageW.exe
I created a new deploy script, using all the default settings and command lines. This is how I always make my scripts, I rarely find a reason to edit a script made from the console. all i do is specify my image location and the path to the image.exe tool.
The deploy script runs fine, gets all the way to the end, and then gets stuck on "waiting for command" right after it's finished copying the entire image. I'm assuming the step it's getting stuck on is where it's writing the file system because after this the machine is unbootable.
This has happened before and we've managed to find ways around it, but this time we're stuck.
I tried re-capturing the image using ImageW.exe, but whenever I try to deploy an image captured with imagew.exe using the DOS PXE script, the image.exe program opens and closes without copying anything. I seem to only be able to use DOS-created images with the DOS PXE scripts. I've seen others report this problem, but can't find any solutions.
I've also tried switching to the WinPE environment, and the same thing happens. The script either opens and closes the ImageW.exe immediately, or it copies the entire image, but then freezes at the end, leaving the OS unbootable.
If I manually open imagew.exe from WinPE and start the imaging, it finishes just fine, so I know the image is valid.
anyone got any help to offer? Sorryt his got long and wordy, I can't think of a better way to phrase it.
