Unable to perform Mac Operation System Deployment

0 users found this article helpful


I am not using the IIS Default Web Site for the Distribution Point, I am using custom site. OSD (Operation System Deployment) task sequence starts to deploy to my Mac, but fails after a certain point during the TFTP file transfer.


Custom sites currently are not supported by Parallels Management for Mac.


  1. Run appcmd.exe file (C:\Windows\system32\inetsrv\appcmd.exe)
  2. Execute the following commands one-by-one:

     appcmd add vdir "/app.name:SMSWEB/" /path:/pmmimages /physicalPath:c:\pmmimages    

    NOTE:(–°hange c:\pmmimages to the path to pmmimages that you have specified when you configured Netboot Server. (default value is c:\pmmimages ))

    appcmd set config "SMSWEB/pmmimages" -section:system.webServer/directoryBrowse /enabled:True
    appcmd set config "SMSWEB/pmmimages" -section:staticContent /+[fileExtension='.dmg',mimeType='application/octet-stream']
  3. After executing commands above restart IIS Web Server.
