Issue/Introduction

Issue:

An OSIM job (share mode) fails during the WinPE phase and the following is displayed on the cmd window

CAnet: Error 64
The specified network name is no longer available.
Warning DSM agent package is not availabe on \Servername\sxpsetup-11
Error: OS image share \\Servername\imagename-11\is not available.
Press any key to continue

Cause: 

During the WinPE phase the imagename.cmd is run and this needs to connect to the image shares on the boot server in order to download the OS Install files and the client automation agent install files.

if ERRORLEVEL 1 ( 
echo ERROR: OS image share \\$BootServer$\win7sp1-11 is not available.

The error is seen when there is a problem with the shares on the Bootserver.

    • sdbsswitch -t
    • sdbsswitch -s
