Stuck on upload

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

    Ill get my boot method set up and continue on.
