I did a chkdsk and it came up clean, going from the smaller drive to the larger drive provided no errors this time around, so I suppose I can just mark it resolved as my problem literally is fixed now...now to go hack a bios lol
The reason I'm using File level instead of Block level was because when I was imaging with block level it was giving me errors because of the drive size being different. Even though the Laptop model is the same and ALL hardware is the same - with the exception of the hard drive. Some of the Laptops came with 250GB drives and some came with 500GB drives. Unless you know of a way to make the Upload/Deploy process ignore this? Maybe I was just getting a one off error or something.
Great solution though so far, some quirks but it was all related my systems :)
Alright so I have my image working fine now, even on the remote system, except there's one directory it refuses to capture, and I get:
WARNING: Excluding unsupported file or directory
"/Users/tech/AppData/Local/Service Suite/220.127.116.11/default/MA" from capture
I could PROBABLY include it in the Files/Folders section but that seems a bit odd.
Any idea why CloneDeploy would choose THAT folder to ignore? Perhaps is there permissions that are weird on it?
Yeah figured it out by looking at my Users on my machine here vs the Domain users, so it's all good now - I'll run it under my Domain Credentials for the time being :)
Hello, I'm new to CloneDeploy and I'll start by saying you guys are doing something amazing with this software. Here's my dilema and I'm not sure if it's Domain related or CD related. I have my local network here setup with CD on it, working perfectly fine - NO Domain....I'm working on shifting it over to my client's network which has an Active Directory domain.
When installing on Windows Server 2008 R2 I found it didn't install IIS for me..odd but I can work around it. I installed IIS, can get web working fine, ProxyDHCP is working fine, but when the image goes to download I get the following:
mount: mounting //192.168.130.51/cd_share on /storage failed: Operation not supported
which kind of confuses me...since there's not directory for cd_share created (even in my test environment, but yet my test environment worked fine)
** Restoring MBR / GPT On /dev/sda **
dd: failed to open '/storage/images/T420Tech/hd0/table': No such file or directory

ERROR: Exiting with error code 47:

The device doesn't exist; did you specify it correctly?
The files physically exist on the server, everyone has permissions to read/write to them...I'm just not sure where to go from here. The image schema, size and everything can be read by CD Web interface, just when the files attempt to be downloaded to a computer. This particular computer is literally identical (with the exception of Device IDs, S/N of the machine and parts) to the one I used to image (HDD Size, Manufacturer, etc.). I have attached the full error log, I'm not sure why this is failing...
If you can help me out that would be appreciated. I'm thinking MAYBE Domain permissions need to be updated....but I can't be sure on that one (I do have a Windows CAL for a backup user that I could assign permissions to/run things as if I need to)
I should add that I don't have the files stored in the default location. I have the storage/distribution point as E:\
The image files are in E:\images\ImageName (in this case "T420Tech") so I'd have the following structure:
To get things working (and since this system can only be accessed via VPN or something on LAN) Have Full Access for "Everyone" and "IIS_USERS", just not sure if I should be granting more permissions, or other users or what (although i may have answered my own question just now, I will edit this post in a few minutes)
