    Windows 10 1809 - Sysprep Fail

    Boomerman; Our recommendation is to always build a new VM when looking to deploy a new major version of Windows 10. The upgrade processes of the Spring/Fall updates has consistently, yet unpredictably broke the Sysprep process in which we rely on.

    Right there with you both! Documentation is going to make this feature a lot more useful.

    Windows 10 1809 - Sysprep Fail

    Is the answer still to this issue is I have to build all new images if I want to use 1809?

    Tom, yes the problem occurs when you import the wim into WDS and the Res.rwm file is created. But you need to do that for multicast to work in WDS. If I just copy the file to the images folder on my WDS server it will work fine but it's only unicast.

    Tom, Does that work 100% of the time? I ask, because if it's the same exact image, it's most likely randomly working at times when importing into Install Images and creating the res.rwm.

    Well the problem is with importing the image with WDS into Install images. I have a captured image folder that I copy the images to after captured and then import them. If I select the image from the captured folder everything works fine.

    I have a 2016 server. I will try recapturing the virtuals.

    Jason, I wish we could help. We are looking into workarounds but ultimately it's something Microsoft needs to fix.

    I've rebuilt my WDS server using Windows Server 2016 and the issue persists. Rebuilt and captured image countless times. Thanks for the info but I'd rather not rely on luck while using your product.

    Insert Disk 1?

    Hello, This is a known issue. It occurs if the Windows 10 image is 1803 or greater. There is a chance that it won't import correctly into WDS on Server that isn't 2016. But, not all images have the issue, so you may have luck recreating the image. The older version of Wingapi.dll isn't handling some of the new file properties in 1803. Unfortunately this is something we cannot fix and it even happens when importing a .WIM that isn't create by SmartDeploy but even dism.exe.

    Yup... same here.

    I got the deploy log and below is what happens I have been working with support on this. I had it happen twice before and they told me to go back a version. I just updated to 3030 from 3000 and it happened. 1/16/2019 3:29:56 PM : 1 : #mic,GetWimInformationModel,WriteToLog : Current file: Z:\Images\Smart Deploy Images\FS64 Win10 1803 12-18.wim 1/16/2019 3:29:56 PM : 1 : #mic,GetWimInformationModel,WriteToLog : Cached file: 1/16/2019 3:29:56 PM : 1 : #mic,GetWimInformationModel,WriteToLog : Returning information for file: Z:\Images\Smart Deploy Images\FS64 Win10 1803 12-18.wim 1/16/2019 3:29:56 PM : 1 : #mic,GetMaximumSplitPartNumber,WriteToLog : Searching for split parts in Z:\Images\Smart Deploy Images 1/16/2019 3:29:56 PM : 1 : GetMaximumSplitPartNumber,WriteToLog,WriteToLog : System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. at Common.SmartDeploy.SL.Managers.SmartWIMManager.GetMaximumSplitPartNumber() 1/16/2019 3:29:56 PM : 1 : <.ctor>b__4,ShowModal,WriteToLog : MessageBox : Deploy Wizard : Please insert disc 1.

    Nope... no resolution. Haven't heard any updates from support in over two weeks since they mentioned they would work with their Dev team. I had this issue before with version 3010 and reverting back to 3005 and rebuilding the boot image fixed it too. Not sure what to do here... the multicast support built into the console is not very reliable when I have tried it. In the meantime I have been setting up MDT on the WDS server in case this doesn't get resolved.

    Targeting Second Disk

    What I do it disable the non SSD drive in the bios, image the pc then re-enable it in the bios after the pc has booted to the desktop for the first time.

    Cloud Deployment disappearing

    That is certainly pretty odd. If you can, I'd reset my password, wait before reconnecting my local system to the account, and re-upload. Check to see if the image stays where it's supposed too, and then reconnect your local OneDrive app.

    Deployment Across WAN Slow

    Hey Stephen, You can indeed install SmartDeploy on a host at each site, and configure the local clients to point to that host, copy the image to the local network, and then create an Answer File and Deployment Package that points to the local image and perform deployments that way.

    Deployment Across WAN Slow

    Hi all, When we are deploying our images across our WAN to multiple computers, it is taking around 6-8 hours per machine to apply the image. I realise this all down to bandwidth, image size (ours is 13GB), etc. but i was wondering if the following would work: We have local servers at each site, and we were wondering if it is possible to copy the image to these local servers and deploy the images that way - saving on bandwidth and allowing for machines to image quicker? I realise this is a long shot, but has anyone else come across this? Hope you can help. Cheers Stephen

    remote agent

    Per the guide; you'll use the console to generate the MSI to install the client that will have information regarding your account in it. You can connect to the client at the remote site to do this. If the client can't connect to the SmartDeploy Console host on your main network, it will then look to the internet to reach our Cloud Broker service which will connect it with your host, in which you'll see the connectio type; Cloud. The client service will re-check connectivity periodically and attempt to connect via the local network.
