Thanks for posting.
Is this a single or multiple machine configuration?
If this is a single machine configuration, how many network cards do you have installed? Again, if you're using a single machine configuration, try disabling any and all network cards (even if it's just one), rebooting and attempting the deployment again.
Tried your suggestion and darned if it didn't work.
Thank you, thank you, thankyou. i was really beginning to get worried about this.
My boss (the IT Manager) says this is pretty lame, though.
