inapproprate repository

Now i'm getting an error message when trying to start to upload my image.

" Inappropriate repository
You need a network repository to enable this computer to access imaging data. Please contact the deploystudio Server administrator in order to fixx the repository setup"

Could it be permissions on the hard drive be off?

Re: inapproprate repository

Hi,

I had issues connecting to my shares on our Depository. I check on the Mac OS X Server that the /Library/Netboot/NetbootSP0 folder had the right permissions of Read& Write for our dsadmin user but I forgot that the /Library/Netboot/NetbootClients0 folder needs to be the same. I checked whether both folders had the same permissions first, the /Library/Netboot/NetbootSP0 folder was correct but the /Library/Netboot/NetbootClients0 folder didn't have my dsadmin user in the Sharing & Permissions area (right clicking "Get Info" on the folder) so I added the user and made sure it was set to Read & Write.

I also had to make sure under the Server app under File Sharing that both folders were displayed there. I had to add them in there and allocate the dsadmin user to Read&Write.

Perhaps check those areas and see?

I hope this helps.

Re: inapproprate repository

How are you using DeployStudio server?

What is the server hardware model and OS?

How are the clients/targets connecting to the server (be specific)?

Re: inapproprate repository

I am using Deploy Studio Server  just in a standalone network, pushing out its on dhcp addresses to the client laptops. The hardware that we are using is a Macbook Pro  with Yosemite  with Mac Server installed ver. 4.1.3 and the clients are connecting by a 10/100 switch  by holding down on the options key and hitting N.

Re: inapproprate repository

So how i'm redoing the repository and this is the error message that I am getting " repository access error The defined repository can not be mounted. Please check your settings" My deploy admin account has read & write for the deploy studio folder and  this is how i have the url: "afp://deploystudeiosrv.local/deploystudio " I also tried the IP address as well.

Re: inapproprate repository

So you have a folder on the server that is shared, and it is named "deploystudio", correct?

Open Server.app and click on Users.
Find your deploy admin account, select it, and click on the little gear thingee at the bottom of the window.
Verify the user account has access to the File Sharing service.

Re: inapproprate repository

Also when setting up Repostitory type I selected  a local folder since I want this to run on a standalone network. Is that the right chose to pick or should I pick a network sharepoint? I tried sharepoint url: "afp://depolystudiosrv.local/deploystudio " Authentication User: ds and password.  I hope this helps.

Re: inapproprate repository

If you are connecting target machines via the network, you want to configure the repository type as the network sharepoint path. afp://servername.or.IP/TheRepositoryFolderName

If you are connecting them via target disk mode (firewire cable or what have you) then you want the local folder. Likewise, if you have a purely standalone external drive you boot from with DeployStudio installed.

You should be able to connect with the server's local administrator account by default. If that was "ds" then that should work. If the "ds" account was added later, you will need to make sure it is in the server's local administrator group, or the "ds" account has access to the File Sharing service as described in my previous post, and add the "ds" user to the file sharing privileges for the share IN Server.app.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Just as a quick check, your repository should be the sharepoint. If your repository is in a subfolder of an existing share, then you will need the network sharepoint path to reflect that:
afp://servername.or.IP/TheSharedFolderName/MaybeSomeOtherParentFolderName/RepositoryFolderName

That can be simplified by moving the repository folder to the root level of the drive it's on, then sharing it as a unique sharepoint, so it becomes afp://servername.or.IP/TheRepositoryFolderName
Don't forget to check/assign access to the newly created sharepoint, and verify the DeployStudio server configuration, just for sanity. :)
