Conclusion – Additional Tips OSD Known Issues Troubleshooting

Task Sequence Failed with the Error Code 0x80070002 – we see this error usually during the operating system deployment using SCCM 2012 R2. When you deploy the task sequence to a collection and when you boot the computer from the network, during the step “Applying Operating System” you encounter the Error Code 0x80070002.

In this situation what one might think would be to check the SMTS.log file. I would recommend that but there is something else that you need to check first. Error code 0x80070002 in SCCM 2012 can be interpreted as a network error wherein during the OSD the necessary files are not accessible by the computer where the operating system is being deployed.

The server lost the IP address or the IP assigned to the server is wrong,  and it’s failing to communicate with the SCCM server after the first reboot.
