SCCM: Image Capture Wizard has failed with error code (0x80070020)

by on Jul.08, 2008, under Microsoft, SCCM/SMS2003

During image capture process you receive the following error:
Image Capture Wizard has failed with error code (0x80070020). For more information, please contact your system administrator or helpdesk operator.

This error might appear at any time during the image capture procedure.

In the smsts.log the following messaged error are logged:
Failed to run the action: Capture the Reference Machine.
The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process. (Error: 80070020; Source: Windows)

The execution of the group (Capture the Reference Machine) has failed and the execution has been aborted. An action failed.
Operation aborted (Error: 80004004; Source: Windows)

Failed to run the last action: Capture the Reference Machine. Execution of task sequence failed.
The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process. (Error: 80070020; Source: Windows)

As you can see from the error messages the problem is caused by inaccessible file. In my case capture wizard could not access the files located in HP restore partition. Because restore partinion was not needed l I’ve deleted it and image capture ran OK.

Exchange: Problem installing SP1 on Exchange 2007

by on Jun.25, 2008, under Microsoft

Here is a problem I came across while trying to install Service Park 1(SP1) on Exchange 2007.
During the checking I was getting the following error:

You must be a member of the Exchange Organization Administrators group to upgrade the first Hub Transport server role in your organization to Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1.

End also the same error for all the other roles.

Although I knew that the user have all necessary rights I’ve double checked that and it does.

Solution was very simple I needed to reboot exchange server and after reboot everything worked just fine.

SCCM: Image Capture Wizard has failed with error code (0x800704CF)

by on May.12, 2008, under Microsoft, SCCM/SMS2003

During image capture process you receive the following error:
Image Capture Wizard has failed with error code (0x800704CF). For more information, please contact your system administrator or helpdesk operator.

Now if you look at task sequence log it most likely going to say:
Failed to run the last action: Capture the Reference Machine. Execution of task sequence failed.
The network location cannot be reached. For information about network troubleshooting, see Windows Help. (Error: 800704CF; Source: Windows)

This basically means that the network drive that you are trying to capture image to cannot be accessed. Make sure that the user you’ve provided in capture wizard has enough rights to access the network drive and write to it.
