Create Task Sequence Media Error

Failed to connect to named pipe opened by AdminConsole of Configuration Manager, gle=5

Recently got this error message when trying to create Standalone Media.  My first reaction for media wizard errors is to close the Configuration Manager console, reopen and try again.  That didn’t work, and Google had nothing for me, so here I am posting what fixed it.

Simply a log off and log back on to my workstation.  I had changed my AD password a few days earlier, so perhaps that had something to do with it (gle=5) and 5 usually means Access Denied, but can’t be sure.

Definitely an easy fix, and it may not work for you, but hopefully this can save someone some time if you happen to be searching for this error message.
