This monitor tracks the status of the Windows Deployment Services Server service. When this service is stopped, and the network is not configured as a topology 5 network (all nodes only on an enterprise network), the deployment of compute nodes will encounter errors.
This error can be caused by any of the following:
The network is not correctly configured.
The network is configured as a topology 5 network. The Windows Deployment Services Server service does not start automatically under this network topology.
The Windows Deployment Services Server service encountered an error and had to stop running.
The Windows Deployment Services Server service is disabled.
Group Policy does not allow this service to start.
To troubleshoot and fix this problem:
Restart the Windows Deployment Services Server service on the target head node.
If the service cannot be started, resolve the errors that are reported by the Service Control Manager. The Service Control Manager will produce an error event if the service is terminated unexpectedly. Start Server Manager and check the Windows Deployment Services role. Resolve any errors that are reported by these events in this role service.
If the service still cannot be restarted, contact the domain administrator to make sure that this service is not disabled by the domain Group Policy.
If the preceding steps do not resolve the problem, uninstall and reinstall Microsoft HPC Pack on the node and reconfigure the network topology.
