Windows 10 | Zenworks Imaging from Vmware OS

Hi,

I am currently facing a problem while trying to make an image of a Windows 10 Vmware guest.
I get the following error : "Could not find the Zenworks repository."

I tried modifying the settings in the .vnx file to e1000 (https://www.novell.com/support/kb/doc.php?id=7016226) but it did not work...

I tried chaging the adapter of the vm from e1000e to e1000 or vmxnet3 and no positive outcome...

The Zenworks Version is 11.4.3 and Windows 10 fully patched.

Any idea how to solve this problem ?

Version of VMWare? The trick in the TID has always worked for me.

We have version 5.5

Note that there is a snapshot on the machine. But i ensured that the vnx always have the correct e1000 entry in it in case we restore a snapshot.

I managed to make it work. It looks like the tftp boot files were not the same on the satellite server ( the one i use for imaging purpose ) and the primaries. We've had this problem for some time but i just remembered it.

When we reboot the servers, some cached version of tftp boot file overwrite the actual tftp boot files that are working on our satellite server.

I don't know from where these old tftp boot replicas files come from but it is kind of annoying hehe.

Thank you AndersG.

If you know how to disable the replica of these old tftp boot files, let me know 🙂

I have seen that as well. That happens when replications gets stuck. The
first thing I always check when I see issues like this is to check the
version of say tntfs.ko on the machine efter booting.

See - https://www.novell.com/support/kb/doc.php?id=7010496

At the bottom, it shows what to look for to see if ZCM TFTP replication
ran after the system was restarted.
