connecting to root\sms

While running the generic task sequence provided, the deployment fails during the first occurrence of the "Set RebootStep Variable."

After looking at the smsts.log on the WinPE client, it shows that "ConnectToProvider" portion is failing. It appears that in the scripts being called, the root\sms namespace is being queried on the Management Point server.

Unfortunately, on our Management Point server this namespace does not exist. The root\sms namespace only exists on our SMS Provider server, a different host than is being resolved for the Management Point server.

Can the script be adjusted to point directly at a different host so that the root\sms namespace can be properly queried?

I have posted a related thread on Microsoft's Technet:

I've modified the script. Just save the old one with a different name like "CustomReboot-Original.vbs" or something. Then update the Distribution Points and try again.
