MDT Deployment Share version error

Q: MDT Deployment Share version error


Upon arriving at work today, our MDT server no longer runs install TS' on pcs. After logging on to the server I discovered that the deployment share has been messed up somehow- trying to connect to it shows an error message reading:
"The deployment share 'sharename and path' cannot be opened because it was created with a later version of Microsoft Deployment Toolkit. The version of the deployment share is 6.0.2223.0 while the current version is 5.1.1642.1"

Now I know that I haven't done any updates on the share, and there is another share that is still working on the same server, so I am stumped as to why this has happened! We cannot deploy computers until this is resolved, and I can't see to find any information
on it from my research.

Anyone ever seen this?

Edit: I've realized that version 6.0.2223.0 is MDT 2012, which we don't use. First of all- how is this possible? Second, can I upgrade to 2012 and preserve my existing deployment shares?

Preferred Solution: MDT Deployment Share version error

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: MDT Deployment Share version error

Upgrading the entire console to MDT 2012 and adding the (accidentally) upgraded deployment share seems to have got it back up and running- the OSD TS is currently testing this. I had to also upgrade the second deployment share in order to use it on MDT 2012,
but that went through without a hitch.

Still dumbfounded as to why this happened, or how a DS could be upgraded without the console itself actually upgrading. Luckily, the audit log also showed who did it :)

I'm attempting to use the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2010 to deploy Windows 7.  When I attempt to update the deployment share, I get the following message: "Unable to mount the WIM, so the update process cannot continue."Not surprisingly the boot folders do not have the proper files created for the Win PE (which is the goal of updating the deployment share).

A:Unable to update deployment share for Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2010

Pulled this from the help docsFailure to Update WIM Files   
In a ?simple? environment:
·         For Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, and Windows Server 2008, MDT 2010 locates WIMGAPI.DLL in C:\Program Files\Windows Imaging, which should be in the system PATH. The WIMGAPI.DLL should not reside in C:\Windows\system32: It will be present in the C:\Program Files\Windows AIK directory tree, but MDT 2010 rarely uses it from that location.
·         For Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008, MDT 2010 typically picks up WIMGAPI.DLL from C:\Windows\system32 (always in the path). The version of this WIMGAPI.DLL must match the version (build) of the operating system.
·         On a 64-bit operating system, MDT 2010 always uses the x64 WIMGAPI.DLL file; only that file should be in the system PATH. On a 32-bit operating system, MDT 2010 always uses the x86 WIMGAPI.DLL file; only that file should be in the system PATH. (Other products, such as System Center Configuration Manager, use the 32-bit version of WIMGAPI.DLL, even on a 64-bit operating system, but they manage and install that version.)
Problem: When attempting to update a deployment share, the user will be informed that the mounting of one or more .wim files did not succeed.
Possible Solution: Open a Command Prompt window and run where WIMGAPI.DLL. For the first entry in the list (the first location found by searching the path), ensure that the Version property matches the build of th... Read more

Hello there.I am very new to MDT 2010, so please take it easy.I was running the RC and managed to successfully build a test Win7 image from a Reference machine. I did this by deploying the standard Enterprise image, but rather than 'capture' it straight after, I did some test tweeking to the image, as this is what our company requires. Once happy, from the reference machine, I opened up the "litetouch.vbs" script from the DeploymentShare$\Scripts and invoked a 'sysprep and capture' task I had previous created. This ran perfectly, created my custom OS back to the server and I was then able to deploy it to my test target.OK - so I was quite excited by all this - so far, so good.Yesterday, I installed the new 'final release' of MDT 2010 and I spent some more time on my reference machine, making sure it was 'perfect' as a base release.Once happy, I browsed back the DeploymentShare$ to run "litetouch.vbs" and although the wizard does start, allowing me to choose a Task Sequence and take me through credentials - at the end of the wizard, it just ends - no job is started.Sometimes when I run the .vbs, I get a 'wizard error' popup ...  "A connection to the deployment share () could not be made. The deployment will not proceed".Things I have done: rebooted both client and server. Recreated the 'sysprep and capture' job. Updated the MDT.Can anyone help?

A:a connection to the deployment share could not be made.

I hit this problem yesterday with two Dell PCs. I use MDT 2010.
The error message was totally off...
The problem in BOTH cases was caused by bad local hard drives. Diskpart's "clean" fixed the problem.

I have MDT 2010 setup and am in the process of setting up a 2nd share, I created the share with no issues, and created the "link" without issues as weel. I am now trying to get the linked share to replicate, and am getting an error that the "everything" profile is not valid, when it does exist on the new share. I even tried creating a new profile and setting it to that one, still get the exact same error. Has anyone else seen this?

A:MDT 2010 linked deployment share issue

Figured it out, if this ever happens to you, delete and re-create the 2nd share (the one you want to replicate too) then re-create the link and update. Something must have gotten corrupted.

Hi All,
We've had a reference build for Windows 7 to capture up and running for years, no problems. We've not changed anything I can think of in this build for a good while. We generate a new baseline image every few months, installing all the latest patches in
it so it's patched before being installed in production. For years all so far so good!
Since the last time we did it, we're now getting it failing to install the apps (all hosted on a share on the same server as the deployment share), it quickly became obvious that the issue is when we're trying to connect to the server that hosts the deployment
and app shares we're now being prompted for credentials which we didn't used to.
To make it more interesting we look after another infrastructure, and the Windows 7 reference build there is still fine...
Any ideas?

I'm having a problem after the deployment of a Windows 7 client (LTI). I captured a custom image, but after I deploy it to a client pc, i get an MMC error when I try to open Computer management (MMC console detected an error in the snap-in and it will be
removed - I translated this). It does so twice and after that the mangement console opens without the event viewer and the scheduled tasks snap-ins. The same thing happens if I start the MMC console or either of these two snap-ins from the command prompt.
I have tried to build and cpture a fresh image several times, always the same thing. Another thing is, with the last image, I left it stand for some time before I captured it and so the grace period expired, i didn't do any rearm. I thought that sysprep resets
the grace period, but this isn't the case, I get a black desktop after deployment. Is there a way to work around this?
Windows version is Windows 7 Professional x86, with the following software:

- Cute PDF
- Alternatiff viewer
All of the above is installed before the capture.
These are installed during deployment:
- Microsoft Office 2010
- Flash player
- Shockwave
- Acrobat reader
Before the capture everything works fine.
Thank you for any help.

It could be the error message has to do with their version of Access, have they got the full version or just runtime?

I have a situation that the solution has been escaping me.  I have sysprep successfully a machine, create a WIM image and manage to redeploy it to 4 out of 6 machine successfully.  The last 2 however, prompted me with an error during the deployment.
Reviewing the setuperr.log file, the error is 
2016-07-26 15:12:45, Error      [0x0f0082] SYSPRP LaunchDll:Failure occurred while executing 'C:\Windows\system32\capisp.dll,CryptoSysPrep_Specialize', returned error code 1627[gle=0x000003e5]

I looked online around the capisp.dll and I found a possibility of where the 2 machine had a different device configuration and the recommendation was to change my
PersistAllDeviceInstalls in my unattend.xml to false and have it rediscover the devices.  I did that but still the same outcome.
I have run out of ideas and I need help to move forward.  Please help.

When I am running my deployment for Win7, the last couple systems have returned a memory error when going though the pre-application round of Windows Update. The error pauses the deployment and the system needs to be manually restated before it will continue.
When this error occurred before, I added a task to install SP1 before Windows Update ran. This no longer seems to be working sufficiently. Any ideas on how to solve this problem? My thought was to modify the ZTIWindowsUpdate file to only install a limited
number of updates in a given pass, but I have no idea how to do this.

I assume and hope this is the appropriate forum for this, even though it's for using WDS to deploy Windows XP SP2.  I installed WDS on one of our W2K3 R2 SP1 servers via the Windows Components window of Add / Remove Programs (I didn't use the downloaded Windows AIK package).  For the most part it seems I got everything setup and working fine.  I used the boot.wim image from the Windows Vista DVD to make my Capture boot image as well as Windows PE PXE boot environment image.  I successfully made my own custom install image and was even able to re-deploy it to the laptop which I made it from.Now enters my problem.  I have another laptop that's a similar model, but not the exact same.  When I go to image it I get this error after it gets into Windows PE:

This is disk management on the computer that was upgraded using the Microsoft Update Assistant:

Dear All, 

I would like to search for your help on this issue regarding deploy solution from Visual Studio 2013  to Sharepoint 2013. 
Previously, I am able to direct deploy the solution successfully from Visual Studio 2013 to Sharepoint 2013.
However, these few days I have encountered the error message "Error occurred in deployment step 'Recycle IIS Application Pool': A task was canceled. " when I try to deploy the solution to SharePoint. I didn't change any setting in Visual
Studio and SharePoint. 

Currently, I just able to use Sharepoint 2013 Management Shell to write command and deploy the solution to my SharePoint. It's working fine if I am using the Sharepoint 2013 Management Shell to deploy the solution. 

Unfortunately, I cannot debug my coding due to cannot deploy the solution from Visual Studio 2013  to Sharepoint 2013. I am suspect that my server has canceled my task when I try to deploy the solution, but I don't know what happened to
my server since I didn't change anything.

Appreciate if anyone can help on this issue. 
Thank you very much.

I have a unusual case where I need to setup two mapped network drives as two different users to the same share location. When I attempt to map the second drive after inputting the user name and password the system goes on its merry way for a few seconds
and then returns me back to the username/password input.
If I change the second mapped network drive to use the IP address the two shares work happily. If I manipulate the host file and point two paths to the same address then I can also work around this problem. However, I would simply like to know why I am blocked

Mapping S: to \\TestServer\TestFolder using TestUser1, if I then map T: to \\\TestFolder using TestUser2 it will work and I can access the folder as the two different users.
Case 3
If I map S: to \\TestServer\TestFolder using TestUser1, if I then map T: to \\TestServer\TestFolder using TestUser1 it will also work (but I am accessing S: & T: as the same user). 
Why do cases 2 + 3 work, but case 1 does not?

When I try to add users to a SharePoint site I receive the following message:

"Cannot add user because a user with that name already exists."

Some additional information:

1. I am one of the administrators of the site (there is one other administrator).
2. We both receive the same error when trying to add users.
3. We are using SharePoint 3.0
4. Under the "Manage Users" page the people we are trying add do not show up as users.

OK, at first I thought it was a Norton 360 problem so I deleted Norton 360. The Windows firewall is no longer being controlled by it.

Windows firewall is turned off, it's a public location, printer and file sharing is turned on, discovery is on, I reloaded the default settings for the firewall, the owner is administrator which my login is set for. Didn't matter if the Windows firewall was turned on or off, I still got the error message above.

I used to have D shared but took it off. Now when I try to create the share I get the error message above.

I have another Win 7 Pro computer with the same settings as above and I can share everything just fine.

Any ideas on how I can fix this would be greatly appreciated.

A:An error occurred while trying to share D. Incorrect function.

Anyone have any ideas on how I can fix this problem? I really need to share this drive.

I have a small office that has a server, running Server 2008, that acts as a file server. There are several shares on the server that give access to our 5 users.

We have 5 workstations that all run Windows 7. Each workstation has the same 5 user accounts so any user can work on any of the 5 workstations.

This setup has been working perfectly for years. Now all of a sudden, one machine has starting giving the error 0x80070035 when trying to access the server shares. It can access any other workstation on the network, just not the server. It doesn't matter which of the 5 user accounts you log in as, you still receive this error. All 5 user accounts can access the server from any of the other workstations.

I've also tried entering the server name or the ip address in Internet Explorer on the problem workstation and am also unable to access the server this way.

I would really appreciate any suggestions to get this fixed.

It could be a problem with you Firewall. Try disable the firewall and see if this makes a difference

Hello all, today I finally got around to creating a home network between my two desktops and laptop. Well, I set it up using the Network Setup Wizard, and then attempted to share my "My Music" folder (22 GB) and "My Videos" folder (12 GB). Well, when I went to Properties->Sharing and checked the "Share this folder on the network" tab, I got an error message stating:

An error occured while trying to share My Music. The Server service is not started.
The shared resource was not created at this time.

Anyone have any ideas?

Edit: I think I have found why I can't share files on this computer. When I go to My Network Places and click on "View workgroup computers", I get another message saying:
Mshome is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this netowrk resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. The network path was not found.

I found this odd because this was the first computer I setup for networking. I have also googled this message, and found that it is commonly caused by the Windows Firewall. I have the Windows Firewall deactivated, and instead I'm using Zone Alarm.

All help is appreciated. Thanks

I am running a new install of XP professional on a newly built Shuttle desktop, connected to my network and the internet via a Linksys wireless router (this computer is wired).

I have no trouble reading shared folders on other workgroup computers, and no trouble sharing the Shared Documents folder on the desktop. However, whenever I attempt to turn on filesharing for any other folder (right-clidking and selecting 'Sharing and Security ...') Windows Explorer freezes and I get an error message stating it needs to close. I send the error report, then get a DrWatson Debugger error message saying it also needs to close. I send that error report and then WExplorer freezes and I have to exit via the Task Manager, after which WExplorer runs fine.

I haven't found any reference to this problem anywhere; does anyone have any idea what it could be?

I have an odd issue.. a user reports that they are unable to access a network shared folder from their PC. Here is what I have gathered so far:
-The network share is from their PC located at C:\SQL2014. The share name is SQL2014. Their hostname for this example is "ABC".
-If I attempt to connect to the share from the user's PC ABC to \\ABC\SQL2014 I get the generic error:
  "Windows cannot access \\ABC\SQL2014
   You do not have permission to access \\ABC\SQL2014. Contact your network administrator to request access."
-If I attempt to connect to the share by ABC's IP \\\SQL2014 I can access it.
-If I attempt to connect to the share by ABC's FQDN at  \\ABC.domain.com\SQL2014 I can access it.
-If I map ABC\SQL2014 as a drive letter, I can access it.
-Connecting to this share works fine from any other PC other than ABC.
-I've confirmed the error is affecting any profile old or new on ABC, which means it is a PC-wide issue on ABC.
-If I share C:\SQL2014 as ANY OTHER NAME OTHER THAN SQL2014, I can access it. As in if I share C:\SQL2014 with the share name SQL2014a, I can access \\ABC\SQL2014a.
-Deleted the share and recreated - same issue.
-Created C:\Test and shared it as SQL2014, cannot access \\ABC\SQL2014. It is NOT an issue with the actual SQL2014 folder.

From internet searches I've found the following solutions do not affect my case:
-Clearing CSC/Offline cache (most common working solution)

Dear admins, power users etc.
The last 36h hours i spend googling my problem but couldn't get any help to solve this issue. I have multiple Windows 7 machines (32bit and 64 bit) at home.

One machine shows my samba share in the network environment and i can access it via double click perfectly.
Another machine doesn't show my samba share in the network environment. However I can access it via \\Share\mount or via \\ip\mount (after accessing the mount it shows up in the network environment, not sure what causes the problem of not showing it in the network environment initally)
The "headache-giving" machine that i refer to in the introduction doesn't show the share in the network environment nor allowing me to access the \\Share\mount or \\ip\mount but only connecting to the samba share via mounting it as Networkdrive X,Y,Z...
As one can imagine googling this problem is not the easiest task and gives you a lot of false positive results. Trying to access my Share via \\Share\mount or \\ip\mount gives me the following error message:

(i apologize for it being german, however I hope that the smart ones will understand it anyways! )

As 2/3 or the windows machines can access the samba share, samba smb.conf problems can be excluded. So I strongly assume it is a Windows problem. I am running MCAfee Virusscan Enterprise. Windows Firewall is disabled and the machine is also in the same "WORKGROUP" as the samba share.
