Failed to run Task Sequence 0x80070002

If you receive the error message 0x80070002 during the Task Sequence, this may mean that the download of the package did not go well due to:

  • Network Access Account is not configured properly;
  • Slow network connection;
  • Lack of ISS components on the site server.

If the problem occurs due to a slow network connection, an extra step containing two variables can be added to the task sequence to prevent this.

Check the smsts.log file:
SendWinHttpRequest failed. 80072ee2

Add the next step:

Type: Set Task Sequence Variable
Name: SMSTSDownloadRetryCount
Task Sequence Variable: SMSTSDownloadRetryCount
Value: 5

Type: Set Task Sequence Variable
Name: SMSTSDownloadRetryDelay
Task Sequence Variable: SMSTSDownloadRetryDelay
Value: 15
