Markum,

Are you really sure you want Datacenter Edition?

A way round it....

Dont use the automated installer to install RDP.
Go run the setup.exe in the rdp folder on the DVD.
When you get to this stage say skip and copy the files later. This will allow you to proceed.

Copy the files manually into the osdist subfolder, but I bet they dont work as the media is not Datacenter Media.

Adrian,

according to rdp installation guide, i already manually copy-ing my Win2008 Server source into

c:\program files\hp\rdp\deployment server\lib\osdist\w61

my question is,
1.where i can find the Server Deployment job template on my RDP??? coz i only see my win2003 template job, see my attach, for details

2.or we have to create it manually also??

3.or there is any easier way to do the deployment (win2008 server) after manually copy the source???

need advice,

Re: "the selected folder can not be verified as a valid source for "wi2008server"

Can you run the PIM again
On DVD:\rdp\eng\pim\setup

And provide it with any 2008 std or enterprise media. Otherwise you can import the job but it wont setup all the other bits you need in the lib directory.

The 2008 jobs can be imported from DVD:\rdp\eng\pim\jobs\Server Deployment

Also
RDP 3.7 on ICE DVD 2.20 = Altiris 6.8 SP2 - does NOT support Windows 2008.
RDP 3.7 on ICE DVD 2.21 = Altiris 6.8 SP2 - can support 2008 (with RDP 3.8 jobs)
RDP 3.8 on ICE DVD 2.30/5 = Altiris 6.9 - DOES support 2008

Re: "the selected folder can not be verified as a valid source for "wi2008server"

Adrian,

Any idea, wht does the microsoft windows original/genuine "win2008 server any edition" DVD source physically package look a like?
is it one dvd for one version? (just like the earlier ver. Of windows cd source, e.g wind2000 or wind2003 server)Or one dvd for bunch of version (stndard, datacenter etc)
Or is it any issue wth the win2008 server dvd source tht i use for the instalation process? Coz im using a not licensed one..
Does if i use the original/genuine version of win2008 server, are this gonna solved my problems?

Tks 4 support,
cheers,

run the PIM from \rdp\eng\pim

Skip the media transfer and copy manually to w61d

It should not do a media check.


Genuine windows media.... well physically its about 5.25", silver on one side and on the other it says genuine microsoft.
