SCCM Reboot during OSD Install – "NO MP Certificates"


I just spent ages troubleshooting an annoying thing with SCCM. Every time I tried an OSD PXE installation the PXE would load and then just before the task started it would just reboot.

I followed all the troubleshooting tips for Windows PE environment and reviews the "smsts.log" log to just see a message "NO MP Certificates" and a few similar floundering people on DL's

As a last straw before calling a proper SCCM expert, I checked all the Network Access Accounts in client agents and saw that the "Computer Client Agent" was not using the same account as the one used to install SCCM (although it was a domain admin!).

Switched this to be the same as the main install account and all worked fine ;-))

    Hi, I have a the same problem. Can you help me please. Your solution doesn’t work for me.

    This is a pretty bad advise to use the same account. NAA account name and its password are exposed in Task Sequence environment in clear text. So, everybody who images the machine or has admin access to a computer on which Task Sequence is running can get access to privileged (even domain admin like in example above). NAA must be just a domain user with no extra rights.
