downloadWhen you use custom port settings in Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager Service Pack 1 (SP1), the task sequence may not run. For example, when you configure the site to use port numbers other than port 80 or port 433 as the default ports, the deployment fails because the operating system image cannot be downloaded. Additionally, the following error message is logged in the Smsts.log file:
