I encountered this error today when I attempted to add the recent Revit Update Release 1 to an existing Building Design Suite deployment using the modify admin tools. I got through the wizard OK, adding the service pack, and the image update proceeded normally until failing with this error:
After a couple of attempts (which failed) and checking the basics (like sufficient disk space to store the image!) it was time to investigate further. A web search found this Autodesk Up and Ready blog post with an answer, if not one I wanted.
“At this time the only solution is to re-create the deployment with the updated changes. This issue has been reported to the Building Design Suite QA team.” Posted 05/28/2012
Alas there is no fix but I thought it a great example of how the “old” social media like blogs* combine with newer social media, like Twitter, for near instant interaction. Both still have their place!
Until I make a new image I will just deploy, then manually apply the update. Not really a big deal for me as don’t have many machines to do.
* Remember when blogs were new media!
