Error creating ZTI CD when using local SMS Console

When running the SMS Admin console locally on your administrative workstation, the CD generated may be different from one generated on the SMS Server.

Depending on your configuration you may receive the error; "unable to load sql server oledb..."

The files used to generate the CD locally typically reside in C:\SMSAdmin\OSD

Make sure that the files in your local C:\SMSAdmin\OSD directory have been syncronised with those on the SMS server, [SMSInstallDirectory]\OSD.
Of particular note are the osdshell.exe and OSDWinPE.wim files.

The OSDWinPE.wim contains the customised background that you specified in the Windows PE tab of the MS Deployment workbench.
