    RIS Image trouble

    Im trying to create an image from an SP2 CD to my RIS server. Everything works fine until the file copy stage when installing a client when it starts complaining that Inf files are missing. I ahve tried an install straight from the CD and it doesnt complain at all any ideas?
    The file that came up mostly was %maininf%

    Where does your SP2 CD come from? Did you create it yourself? If so, using whose instructions.

    I have also had a similar problem very infrequently at maybe two sites. The problem went away after a little while and I put it down to network congestion.

    Try uploading a bog standard XP CD and building a client from it.

    I have 2000 images working fine. I had this problem previously so shelled out for a copied disk from County only to find the same problem. Im going to try getting the source from a different drive on another machine next but I suspect its something to do with the server or RIS.

    Seems to have worked this time . I know for sure now that the CD rom in the server is a bit shoddy. I did try the other copy in another machine as well but that was obviously a dud disc. Just my luck really :?

    @ChrisH: You want the proper discs (speak to Ramesys) - those ones from Westfield are crap!
