Snap Deploy 5 - machines always "Not Ready"

Hi all.

I am using the trial version of Snap Deploy 5 and can happily deploy images if I get a client to boot from the PXE server. However, what I am after is that ability to deploy to live machines (leave the machines on Friday night and let the deployments happen over the weekend type thing).

I installed the Remote Management client to the machine but in the console the client is sat at "Not Ready"

Checked the client machine and it has the Acronis Remote Agent Service running along with the Scheduler2 service.

Any pointers on why the client machine just sits at "Not Ready" instead of "Online"?

Not enough info about what you installed (which components and how) - since you said pxe works you should try remote-deploying the Agent on the working machine.

Forgot to add - this problem went away when I did 2 things:

1. Altered the power / hibernation settings in windows

2. Purchased licenses and upgraded to the latest version of Snap Deploy

What did u alter hibernation settings to?

I have hiberfil disabled and getting this issue. but i reenabled hiberfil and still getting machines "not ready". Im adding new windows 10 machines and none of them seem to take to the ASD5 Server

Personally, I'd recommend disabling "fastboot" if using Windows 10 - this prevents the system from fully shutting down and may be hibernating anyway.  On all of my systems with SSD's or NVME drives, I disable fastboot and hibernation, but turning off hibernation with this command:

powercfg -h off

if you want to turn it on later...

powercfg -h on
