"Downloaded WDSNBP"??



  • This is what happens when trying to upload Windows 7 image to FOG. I receive the following information when restarting machine to upload image:

    Downloaded WDSNBP
    Architecture x64
    Contacting Server: 192.168.0.69 ??? (My fog server actually is 192.168.0.191)
    TFTP Download: boot\x64\pxeboot.com
    Press F12 for Network Service Boot
    …from this point on the process will timeout and simply boot up Windows normally

    I have changed scope options in DHCP
    Installed FOG Service & FOG Prep on client

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.



  • When you upload an image to the server it compresses the file, so it’s not raw. This is why the image size is smaller on the server.

    When you download the file it should go much faster due to it needing to extract the file, and not needing to use the CPU cycles to compress it.

    Your images are rather large in comparison to most images I work with 3-6 GB.

    Does it go faster when pulling an image down from the server?



  • [quote=“mtb3, post: 1751, member: 601”]Thanks…in my state of hurry up and test, I mistakenly typed 191 and not 192.
    Image is now uploading.
    I set up the image in FOG to be Windows 7, Multi-Partition, single disk (not resizable)
    …original image to upload is a 232 GB partition with the extra 100MB partition.
    Concern is that the image is [B]uploading now & that it looks like it is going to end up being 68.93 GB.?[/B]
    [B][/B]
    Is this the best way to do a Windows 7 image? …and is this the smallest I can expect the image to be after upload.
    I have read that you can use the Single Partition (NTFS - resizable)

    Thanks again

    PS. Does the deployment of image take longer than the upload. I am sending the image back to the original
    computer now and seems to be taking twice as long to download.[/quote]

    [B]Image deployment taking tremendously long time. In two hours and 37 minutes downloaded 43 GB, with 25 GB to go.???[/B]



  • [quote=“ssx4life, post: 1750, member: 268”]Please verify that you have your DHCP settings correct (66 and 67 for server 2003 / 2008) that point to your fog server.

    look here for more info - [url]http://www.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php?title=Windows_DHCP_Server[/url]

    If you are using a router or something other than windows server for DHCP look here - [url]http://www.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php?title=Modifying_existing_DHCP_server_to_work_with_FOG[/url]

    Sounds like your network is not set and pointing to your fog server.[/quote]

  • [quote=“falko, post: 1721, member: 48”]seems like you haven’t stopped your WDS Service on your windows box[/quote]
    Ok, thank you. I’m in a business network and found that one of our servers had WDS running on it. Stopped that service.
    Now when I try to upload the Windows 7 image the upload stops at “TFTP” and is thinking about doing something, then times out and boots straight into Windows.
    [B]does this without the info from original post[/B]:
    Downloaded WDSNBP
    Architecture x64
    Contacting Server: 192.168.0.69 ??? (My fog server actually is 192.168.0.191)
    TFTP Download: boot\x64\pxeboot.com
    Press F12 for Network Service Boot

    Simply just hangs at “TFTP”, then times out.

    Thanks
