Stuck on upload

  1. 2 years ago

    I have tried to upload a test image to my CloneDeploy server which is a VM running Server 2016 r2.
    The image I am uploading is Win 7 HP that is a VM that has been configured and sysprep'd and set to the OOBE.

    I have turned on the Win 7 VM and let it boot up until prompted to start the setup. I have then gone to Tasks -> Start Computer Task selected my Image -> upload. The image has the MAC address of the Win 7 VM and it appears to start without error.

    The problem I have is that after starting nothing happens. I've left the upload run for roughly 24 hours and in All Active Tasks it shows a status of '0' and nothing else.

    I believe you are missing a step. Are you following the getting started documentation?

    You need to boot into an imaging environment to upload and deploy images. It can be pxe or iso/usb.

  3. I have read all of the documentation. Whether I understood it all is debatable.

    From what I understood the boot method step is after uploading the image to the CloneDeploy server. I am not ready to deploy the image to any machine.

    Now if I have misunderstood I will be using this with Bootable flashdrives to deploy, and can set that up.

    The boot method step is used for both upload and deploy.

  5. Thank you for the information and quick responses. Really appreciate that.

    Ill get my boot method set up and continue on.
