OS deployment in ConfigMgr fails with Error 80220005

Description: You see the following error messages on smsts.log:
Failed to open the Task Sequencing Environment. Code 0x80220005. Please ensure you are running this executable inside a properly configured OS Deployment task sequence.  

-Unknown error (Error: 80220005; Source: Unknown)
-Exiting with return code 0x80220005
-Process completed with exit code 2149711877
-Failed to run the action: Apply Windows Settings.
-Unknown error (Error: 80220005; Source: Unknown)

Solution: Make sure the computername is not too long. If the length is longer than 15 characters, shorten it.

After that OS deployment will be running fine again! :)
