    Hi,

    We have installed snap deploy in our environment. When we boot up the client via PXE, we see the menu and select Snap deploy Agent. Back at our management console we can see the workstation which we just booted to snap deply mode. After that we click at deploy target pc's, and create a template. Next the workstation seems to start to transfer the image from our deploy server, it says "deploy started at IP", "file xx is accepted to download", and then the message appears "failed to deploy" because the workstations had shut itself down. I've tried to make the problem.log as you guys have said in other topics, but after typing the line

    product /mode:demon /log-level:verbose /log:../tmp/problem.log

    The client just sits their and starts nothing, only thing i can do is reboot..

    Build 1277 trial version 5 licenses

    </log>

    License is ok, he starts erasing the disk, gets the image etc etc... and all that i can see in the console is:

    "Host X failed to deploy"

    Although that happens after a few mins, not immediately

    Gloogy,

    I am trying to get Snap Deploy to work in our environment. It seems you've had more succes than I have. I've installed all of the components on one server and I'm trying to deploy an image I've created to a test box. I don't even know how to boot the remote PC with PXE. I also cannot "see" any ips or names in the deployment field to deploy anything to.

    Any ideas on how to improve this situation? Many thanks. Bill
