How to fix error "Failed to run task sequence (0x80070005)" in MDT?

José Ygor Mendes 0 Reputation points

I've been trying to deploy Windows 7/10/11 using MDT and during the task sequence, users can select the OU they want and join the domain. But when they select to join domain, when the installation finishes the post-installation task fails. It only happens when the computers join to a domain and OU, but, i've noticed that when the selected OU has no inheretance the post-installation task runs normally.

Here some logs from smsts.log and litetouchLiteTouch



Is there a way to fix this, because i want the machines to join the domain.

    Check to ensure the secure boot is turned on & legacy boot is turned off, and try again.

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Q&A forum.

    1,The error 0x80070005 means "Access is denied". Which user you are using to join domain, does the user have correct permissions?

    2,Please help check the c:\windows\debug\netsetup.log (detailed logging of join attempt) and c:\windows\setuperr.log (errors only) to see if there is any further information.

    Thanks for your time. Have a nice day!

    Best regards,
