Unattend and Network Issues

Recommended Posts

When trying to do the unattend deploy with an answer file I always get prompted to specify an image. I have a valid IP at the bottom right and can ping the desktop with SmartDeploy and the files. I cannot, however, map the drive because I will get either 'Error 1312' when I try the Username Password (both are correct), or I will get Access Denied with Domain\Username and Password. I have noticed that I am also now having problems pinging the target device. I have disabled the Firewalls for both PCs just to test with no luck.  I appreciate any help. Thanks!

Error 1312 indicates A specified logon session does not exist. It may already have been terminated. Try just mapping \\ComputerName\C$ and ensure you're a local administrator on that machine.

Thanks,

SmartDeploy Support

I have tried \\ComputerName\C$ and several variations. The account is the local administrator on the machine (only account on there).

Still not having any luck, I checked and 'Network access: Do not allow storage of credentials or .NET Passports for network authentication' was already disabled.

okay, so with your help you got me on the right track. I had to make an entry in the register for Windows 10. Here is the article for future reference:

The \\ComputerName\C$ is now being mapped automatically with the answer file but it is still asking for me to specify an image even though that has already been done in the answer (unattend) file. Any suggestions? Thanks again!

When it can't find the image, manually map to the image, proceed through the Deploy Wizard, then on the Summary page, click Export and export the answer file.

Then recreate your boot media with that answer file.
