I am trying to connect to my PXE SCCM server with WDS installed
and dhcp is installed on a server that is located in different subnet
and the configuration on dhcp is
067 Bootfile Name: REMINST\Boot\X86\wdsnbp.com
066 Boot Server Host Name: servername.domain.com (FQDN)
060 ClassID: PXEClient
043 Vendor Specific Info:  ip converted to Hex 06 01 07 08 07 00 0e 01 [ pxe server ip] 09 05 00 0e 02 52 42 0a 02 00 52 ff

any missing configuration?

1) always far easier and consistent to use iphelpers instead of DHCP options (DHCP boot options arent actually supported)
2) 067 should be Boot\X86\wdsnbp.com - dont need reminst in front
3) 043 - never seen that used before - whats that all about ?

yep, sorry, you do use SMSboot\x86\pxeboot.com
if you have a look in your remoteinstall sub-dirs, you'll see the files and appropriate folder structure.

I changed all my senario
I installd DHCP on PXE server
and did all the configuration
my smspxe.log
MAC=00:23:7D:BD:5D:59 SMBIOS GUID=2CCC303A-025C-11DE-BBDA-7DBD5D590023 > Device has been accepted.
and on the client screen

pending request ID: 52
Contacting Server: (pxi ip) ..................................................................................

well, the fact that its connecting is a good start. Could you post a larger section of your smspxe.log
additionally, some machines have pxe boot issues - so try on multiple machines or ensure the bios is the latest version.

are you using the MDT pxefilter by any chance? or have a multi-homed sccm box?
if you restart the WDS service do you see any issues in the smspxe.log relating to startup? You havent done something like configure WDS independently ?

well, you shpuld manually delete the C:\windows\temp\pxebootfiles... as thats busted (but that is a common issue) - having said that, your clients are clearly booted, so the files have been copied from there into the smsboot area previously...
That all looks fine though. I did a quick google on the issue... and you're definately not the only one experiecing it, but no-one seems to have a definitvie answer. Some suggest that just restarting the WDS service was enough, where-as others have gone down the path of a uninstall PXErole/WDS, reboot and then re-install.
If it was me - i'd still be trying to ditch the DHCP options and go with the IPHelpers as my first test... have a look at your pxecontrol log also.... but if its still busted, the uninstall/reinstall of WDS/PXE is only a 30 minute job.
