Windows 10: Error 6118 when attempting to save image file to network location

    Error 6118 when attempting to save image file to network location

    Hi All,

    I am attempting to save an image file from my reference machine to a specified network location. Unfortunately, I keep receiving:
    Error 6118: The list of servers for this workgroup is not currently available.
    It would appear, after doing some research, that the Net Use command queries a network for systems with the same workgroup name. Therefore, when attempting to use the
    Net Use D: \\Server\directorylocation
    command, it's imperative that both the reference system and the server system are on the same workgroup (or domain if you have domain server I assume). I don't have a domain server and my organization is quite small, so we just use workgroups to organize our systems.

    winPE appears to use the default workgroup name of workgroup. My server system has a different, custom-set workgroup name. I have confirmed that changing my server system back to the name workgroup allows my batch script to run and complete properly.

    My question is whether or not there is a way to change the workgroup name in winPE so that I don't have to change the name of my server system every time I want to image some computers? Or perhaps some sort of other work around?

    Thank you ahead of time for any and all help.

    I have not. I will give that a shot and see if that resolves the issue.
