Jarvis's Ramblings

Build and Capture TS with DFS

I learned this a while back, but never blogged it. I was building a Build and Capture Task Sequence in SCCM. At the end when it started the capture, I wanted it to upload the WIM to my DSL which happens to be on a Distributed File System share. It failed. I can’t remember the error that it gave, but eventually I determined that it simply couldn’t copy to the DFS share. I pointed it to a regular share (that went to the same folder as the DFS share), and it worked fine.

I use the DFS share as the source to all of my programs without any problems. But for the Build and Capture, I have to reference a plain server share instead.

  1. Jarvis, I believe that you may want to clarify that you have an AD based DFS. At which point your comment makes sense as PE is not a member of AD and therefore cannot resolve the root of your DFS namespace.
