Clients re-connecting to new server

Created: 20 Sep 2013 | 2 comments

I experienced a problem with my GSS server, so it being relatively new, I just clean-reinstalled WS2008 and reinstalled GSS 2.5 from scratch. I have a startup script in a GPO that installs the Ghost client on my PCs in this manner:

msiexec /i "\\server-name\ClientInstall\Client.msi" /q GHOSTINSTALLTYPE=Client GHOSTCONSOLESERVERNAME=123.123.123.123

For a computer newly joined to the domain, this works great. For a computer that I had already joined to the domain that already has the Ghost client installed, this doesn't work and it can't connect to the server.

Is there a way I can get the startup script to install the Ghost client and actually find the re-built server?

Thanks!

Try uninstalling the existing Ghost client, ensuring that the registry is cleared of any remaining Ghost information, then reinstall the client.

If your issue has been solved, please use the "Mark as Solution" link on the most relevant thread.

Use a script to replace the old pubkey.crt file on the client as part of the earlier installation with the new pubkey.crt file from the fresh installation.

Location : Program Files(/x86)\symantec\Ghost (both on client and server )

Follow this copy task with the command ngctw32 -restart to restart the client services
