My provisioning environment is finally configured correctly. When I boot my target machine, it eventually gets to a point where it waits for further instruction from the BMI. At this point, the device is loaded in PM and I can choose to provision it at leisure.
When I initiate provisioning, the process continues to roll smoothly until the target machine is rebooted after creating the new partitions. I've clipped the portion of the log file that I feel demonstrates the error. I can supply the entire log as required.
Looking at the details, I see that the partitions are created and that the "NTFS filesystem bootcode" is successfully applied. The creation of the "run once" is started and successfully completed.
At this point, the log throws a "System error 67" Symptoms are that a network name is not found. I'm assuming this keeps a key drive from being mounted, as the log file quickly degenerates into not finding the drive, path, etc of specified resources.
Info Dec 9, 2008 1:27:37 PM Completed Make Run Once
Info Dec 9, 2008 1:27:38 PM System error 67 has occurred.
The network name cannot be found.
The system cannot find the drive specified.
The system cannot find the path specified.
X:\>winnt32 /syspart:C /s:K:\2k3\I386 /unattend1:c:\BLProv\unattend.txt 1>X:\Windows\System32\BladeLogic\bin\state.res
'winnt32' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
This is the very tail end of the log. At this point, the target machine is hung after reboot complaining that the NTLDR is missing. This is expected due to the error in the log regarding not finding 2k3\i386.
My datastore is located at c:\prov_training\win_datastore. Inside the win_datastore folder, I have the 2k3 folder. The 2k3 folder holds I386. The entire path is:
In: Tools -> Configurations -> System Package Types : my OS installer for the package I'm using is set to "2k3" (with no quotes, of course).
With all of this in mind, what is "system error 67" and how do I fix this problem? As always, any and all assistance is greatly appreciated.
