An error occurred while trying to initialize provider WDSMDMGR

Recently I set up two SCCM OSD Distribution Point, one is booting up well, but the other one has issues with WDS, the error message is “An error occurred while trying to initialize provider WDSMDMGR from C:\Windows\system32\wdsmdmgr.dll. Windows Deployment Services server will be shutdown. Error Information: 0x3”

 

Quite typical error from my another DP, here is the easy fix:

  1. Disable PXE / wait until WDS is uninstalled
  2. Delete C:\Windows\Temp\*.*
  3. Delete D:\RemoteInstall
  4. Reboot
  5. Add PXE support on the DP (WDS install automatically)
  6. Reboot
