Deployment Process Not Initiated—Missing Components
Problem: When troubleshooting a failed deployment, a review of the BDD.log file lists the following entry:
ERROR - Unable to create ADODB.Connection object, impossible to query SQL Server: ActiveX component can't create object (429).
Possible Solution: This error may indicate that the Windows PE image was not created using MDT. If you are using Configuration Manager, do not use one of the existing Windows PE images that Configuration Manager created; instead, create an image using the Import Microsoft Deployment Task Sequence Wizard.
Note The Windows PE images that Configuration Manager creates contain components that support scripting, XML, and Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI), but they do not contain components that support Microsoft ActiveX® Data Objects (ADO).
