Hello,

I am using the new WDS for a few weeks now and i must say it's a great step forward from RIS but i'm having a weird problem capturing images.

I have a Windows XP SP2 installation which is completely rebuilt from the ground up with all the latestes software and service packs, when i want to capture it ImageX goes trough it's verifying process and hangs at the DLLCACHE\something.dll saying it's got a access denied.

Now the weird part is everytime it's a different file in this folder.

I've tried searching for a answer but i can't find any info on this.

Maybe unrelated but it's almost the same symptom:

I have a WDS test server on a completely isolated network that gave a similair error on the .NET framework assemblies.

Access denied on system.enterprise or somesuch. It's the version 2.0 of the file. If i look at the file is seems fine and has no weird permissions or anything.

This is on a Windows 2003 R2 X64 machine.

If anyone has any info on this i would be very much obliged.

Regards,

Pants

Describe the process you are going through to capture the image.
Did you RTFM?

Ok,here goes.

Install windows XP sp2 with all applications and hotfixes.

Sysprep & reseal.

Reboot to PXE.
Start up the Litetouch WinPE2.0.

From the wizard exit to command prompt.

Map a network drive to our WDS server.

from this network drive i run.

imagex /capture c: z:\winxpSP2.wim

It then goes off verifying the files and it hangs at the DLLCACHE directory at some DLL. If i run the command again it hangs at different file in the DLLCACHE folder.

I can't really figure if there is something wrong with these files or something else is happening that triggers this error.

I have succesfully used this method to capture Win2K3 Servers.

Is this detailed enough? I'm more than happy to supply more information.

Kind regards,

Pants

try excluding dllcache. (read the imagex help file on that) you shouldn't need it anyways.

I could give that a try, except i would like it to just work.

Will the DLLCACHE be rebuilt, i haven't found a satisfactory answer about that.

sorry, I think I was thinking to short here. DLLCACHE holds the files to avoid asking for the XP cd right? If that's right, it was a pretty stupid idea of me.

I think it's the windows file protection directory.
I really don't want to mess with it if i don't have to :)

Installed a new machine and this one works like a charm.

Must be a isolated incident.

Thanks for the suggestions though.
