PXE in SCCM : Issues & Bugs

2:06 pm in ConfigMgr 2007, Lab, SCCM 2007 by Kenny Buntinx [MVP]

And the story continues around the famous OSD Deployment . It worked flawless after I strugled the last time @ the test lab at the customers , now we moved it to production and gues what happend …right , it did not work


 After opening the smspxe.log it showed me this error :


 <![LOG[Closing image file C:\RemoteInstall\SMSImages\SMSPKG\PGN00028\boot.PGN00028.wim]LOG]!><time=”15:15:09.963+300″ date=”03-18-2008″ component=”smspxe” context=”” type=”1″ thread=”860″ file=”wimfile.cpp:291″>

I looked into the c:\windows\temp folder  but no PXEBootfiles folder to see…The Windows\Temp\pxebootfiles does not exist. Should it? Or is this a red herring? I looked it up under a command promt with Attrib command and yes a hidden folder where nobody had access to ..


The problem was goofy ACLs on the c:Windows\temp\pxebootfiles. When I attempted to revised security, I got an Access is Denied message. Once the above directory was deleted, the SMSBoot folder would populate when the bootimage was refreshed on the PXE point.


 I reported it as a bug @ the SCCM product team …

The Virtual Data Center: VMM will manage VI3 infrastructure

10:23 am in Lab, Virtual machine by Kenny Buntinx [MVP]

In het first key note of MMS 2008, VP Bob Muglia talked about  Dynamic IT: Transforming Management and the Data Center. He confirmed that most of us already understood: Virtualization is the way to go, especially for Data Center environments. The announcement of the VM Manager Beta 2 release was followed by a short demo that showed SCVMM managing a heterogenous VM environment of Windows Hyper-V and ESX servers.  For ESX, VM Man drills into the VM tools installed on the VM machine so you are actually able to perform a guest-OS migration between ESX host servers.
