MDT Target Offline

This is weird hoping for some suggestions. So I am using PDQ to deploy apps during my MDT task sequence. When it gets to the PDQ task, I use PSEXEC (as outlined in the PDQ blog) to start the deployment in PDQ. It gets 33 seconds into the deployment then it fails with target offline. What’s really odd is that if you do the image process again with MDT, it works without any issues. So in short, I have to image machines twice, because the first time the PDQ Deploy task fails. I ensured the firewall on the target is off, DNS does show the target correctly and it is shown in PDQ Inventory too. Not sure what else to check.

  • Figured it out. Moved the disable firewall command to the MDT task sequence and that resolved it.
