FIX: Task sequence to install an operating system doesn't run when you use custom port settings in System Center Configuration Manager 2012 SP1
When you use custom port settings in Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager Service Pack 1 (SP1), the task sequence does not run. For example, when you configure the site to use port numbers other than port 80 or port 433 as the default ports, the deployment fails because the operating system image cannot be downloaded. Additionally, the following error is logged in the Smsts.log file:
"Error downloading file from http://siteserver.sccm.local:80/SMS_DP_SMSPKG$/CMnnnnnn/sccm?/install.wim to C:\_SMSTaskSequence\Packages\CMnnnnnn\install.wim ApplyOperatingSystem 1996 (0x07CC)
- When you create new operating system media, the boot image inherits the port settings of the site at which it was created. For example, if the media is created on a central administration site (CAS) that uses the default settings, and then the media is distributed to a child primary site that uses custom port settings, the default port settings of the CAS are used.
