  1. Can you run diskmgmt.msc in the VM this image was captured from and send us what it looks like? Thanks!
  2. Need the SmartDeploy.sdf, not SmartDeploy.log. Also, the image metadata would be helpful. Open the "SmartDeploy Enterprise Command Prompt" as admin, and run the following command against the image in question and send us the output. smartwim /info your.wim
  3. You could try right-clicking on that image and select refresh. If that doesn't work could you send the following to support @ smartdeploy.com and we'll take a look. c:\smartdeploy\logs\console.log c:\windows\system32\SmartDeploy.sdf Thanks, SmartDeploy Support
  4. Hi all, This just came up on an unrelated support thread, and I just wanted to let everyone know that as of several months ago, we've added several bugfixes and performance improvements to SmartDeploy to address this issue, so if you're experiencing it, go ahead and update to the latest version of SmartDeploy, recreate your media, and retry deployment, and let us know if the issue persists - support (at) smartdeploy.com.

  5. Hi there, Domain joining failures can occur for a variety of reasons relating to network connectivity, syntax, or user permissions. On a target device that has experienced this issue, boot to SmartDeploy media and click the Collect logs button. Save the resulting zip file to an external location, and send it to support (at) smartdeploy.com. Once we have your logs in hand, we can advise further.

  6. What error message are you receiving? Is this error happening when attempting to import your install image into the WDS role? If so, ensure when you captured your virtual reference machine you selected For Use With WDS. That will strip off any additional volumes such as the system reserve so you can import it into your WDS server. WDS only allows one volume images. Thanks, SmartDeploy Support
  7. Hi there, For reference, here is our white paper on how to integrate SmartDeploy with WDS - you'll want to make sure that you're adding the WIM that you captured to the Install Images node in WDS. https://www.smartdeploy.com/wp-content/uploads/SmartDeploy_WDS.pdf If you're receiving this error while adding your image, this most likely indicates that your image file is invalid or corrupt. Please reach out to support (at) smartdeploy.com and we can advise further. SmartDeploy Support Team TECH RESOURCES SmartDeploy User Guides DeployCentral Forum Platform Pack RSS SOCIAL
  8. Hi there, There is a script to automate this process - you can review Network Deployment starting on P. 39 in the User's Guide. The section on deploying with Group Policy (which includes the script that you can download and modify to specify the host name) is on P. 43. If you have any questions or issues, please feel free to reach out to support (at) smartdeploy.com.

  9. Mark, Currently there is no plans on supporting capturing UEFI based VMs. You can capture a BIOS based VM, and then deploy to a BIOS or UEFI enabled machine. Thanks, SmartDeploy Support
  10. Hello, We have seen this if the virtual machine was updating the Windows Store applications during the capture process. Try starting your virtual reference machine, running Windows Updates, then open the Windows Store and update all the applications there as well. You may have to restart a couple of times and keep updating until all updates are complete. Then capture/deploy and let us know your results. Thanks, SmartDeploy Support
  11. We have not received any reports of this effecting deployment and the above way would be the supported way to customize your Windows 10 desktop when copying the default profile. Thanks, SmartDeploy Support

  13. Hi Mike, A remote/web interface feature is not implemented into the product. Currently, there is nothing on the roadmap to change this. You can however install the SmartDeploy tools on as many machines as you would like without any licensing issues since licenses are based on deployments, not tool installations. So, essentially, you could install the tools on another machine and just give them access to that server if you don't want them accessing the WDS role. Thanks, SmartDeploy Support
  14. Hi all, Certainly - here they are. If you want to customize the Start Menu or Taskbar, then there are new ways to do that for Windows 10 1607 and later. Doing it through Group Policy is probably the easiest most manageable way, but if you want to do it directly then you basically need to create a layout XML file, and then import it. There are a few articles on doing this. http://www.scconfigmgr.com/2016/08/03/customize-pinned-items-on-taskbar-in-windows-10-1607-during-osd-with-configmgr/ http://ccmexec.com/2015/09/customizing-the-windows-10-start-menu-and-add-ie-shortcut-during-osd/ https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/hardware/commercialize/customize/desktop/customize-the-taskbar We have one that we use, it’s attached to this post (renamed to .txt). Basically makes an Office Start Menu collection, and then puts Outlook, Explorer and IE in the taskbar. You copy this .xml into the folder below in your reference VM (that is basically what the PowerShell Import-StartLayout cmdlet does): C:\Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\DefaultLayouts.xml Or you can use the PowerShell Export-StartLayout cmdlet to generate an XML of your own, and copy it to the same location. Feel free to reach out to support (at) smartdeploy.com if you have any questions or issues.

  15. Hi Dennis, Hmmm... This is a known bug in a previous version of SmartDeploy, but it was fixed several versions ago. I know you said you're on 2.0.2050 above, but please go ahead and double check that your media was created with this version - you can boot to the media on the device and look in the lower-right corner in SmartDeploy WindowsPE to confirm. Assuming it's the correct version, this could be a recurrence of the same bug under slightly different conditions. Would it be possible for you to grab a log set from a device that has experienced this failure? It's easiest to do this with SmartDeploy USB media - you can then boot to USB, click the Collect logs button, and save the resulting zip to the USB stick to send with your reply. Then you can email this to support (at) smartdeploy.com. Note that zip files are sometimes restricted by email security policy, so you may want to double check that the log set makes it out of your server.
