Issue/Introduction

After deploying an image to a Windows Vista, Windows 7 or 2008 Server system, the DAgent is unable to communicate with the Deployment Server

 

The following is seen in the DAgent log:

 

[05/29/2008 20:55:37.979 5152 1] WaitForSysPrep.cpp:25 - Internal WaitForSysPrep

[05/29/2008 20:55:37.980 5152 1] WaitForSysPrep.cpp:36 - Checking on Microsoft key for Sysprep

[05/29/2008 20:55:37.982 5152 1] WaitForSysPrep.cpp:43 - Image state is IMAGE_STATE_SPECIALIZE_RESEAL_TO_OOBE

The Image state may also show as UNDEPLOYABLE.

Cause

The following registry key is set incorrectly after a new image is deployed to the computer.

HKLM | Software | Microsoft | Windows | CurrentVersion | Setup | State | ImageState

This may be caused by Microsoft sysprep information corruption during the creation of the image.

Resolution

Change the registry key

HKLM | Software | Microsoft | Windows | CurrentVersion | Setup | State | ImageState = IMAGE_STATE_COMPLETE

Restart the DAgent service.
