Help with a secondary site
Posted on 2011-04-28
I have a primary SCCM server that serves my site; everything with it works great.
I have been tasked with imaging a number of PCs on seperate sites, all of which have only a 10MB uplink. With this in mind I have setup a secondary server that will sit on the site and feed all of the images/drivers over the LAN.
I have setup the server and can see it listed under site management. The site status is all green ticks and I can distribute packages (drivers, OS images, PXE boot images) to it and can confirm they appear on the secondary server.
My problem arises when I test the configuration. I just can't seem to make a client on the remote site pull all of its data from the local server. I have setup the appropriate boundary for the IP range the remote site sits in and have tried to protect the boundary (I believe this may be where the problem sits, but am unable to get to the bottom of it).
Currently when I try to image a machine on the remote site, it PXE boots via the primary server and displays all the task seqences. When I choose the appropriate task sequence, it gives me an error saying "Failed to run task sequence" because the program files for SRF00001 (my PXE boot image) cannot be located on a distribution point. This happened after I tried to protect the secondary server, before I did this the task sequence worked, but it pulled everything from the primary server, which is unacceptable.
Thanks in advance.
