support paq installation problem!

support paq installation problem!

support paq installation problem!

Hi, does anyone know what causes the compaq support paq to fail due to being unable to attach to the target machine.  this is a stand-alone machine in a workgroup that works perfectly in every other way, the remote deployment utility of the support paq can even see the computer name if i browse for it, but still says it cant connect.  I am logged on as the administrator,

any help would be... helpful, thanks!

RE: support paq installation problem!

Try making a connection to the remote servers IPC share first. From the cmd prompt, enter

net use \\servername\ipc$ /u:Administrator *

It will ask you for the admin password for the remote machine.
