Configuration Manager PXE client stops WDS
Posted on 2009-02-24
I have SCCM R2 setup on a Server 2008 box. I installed SCCM PXE point after installed WDS on the server. It appears to be working properly and I am picking up clients that are known as it should when they have a OSD task assigned.
Although when they don't have a task assigned, I would like it to fall over to WDS, which it is supposed to do according to all the documentation, but it doesn't. It just does a PXE abort, says it is looking for the next device and gives up.
I have tried setting the response time for WDS and the PXE service point. It makes no difference. The only way I can get any machine to use WDS instead of the SCCM PXE point is to disable the PXE point. Then the machines boot WDS properly. If I renable the PXE service point, it will again never fall back to WDS.
Any idea why?
