Setting up PXE on server 2008 R2 without WDS

Hello,

I am trying to setup Transport Server to use for PXE booting following these instructions,

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd348475(v=ws.10).aspx


 but I haven't had any luck - the client gets DHCP but TFTP request times out



 I suspect I need to configure the DHCP server options 67, but not sure which bootfile/what path to put as the 67 value, and I am probably missing something else too, like the Wdssipr.dll.conf.ini config - no idea if I should change that and how.


Thanks in advance!!!

Hi IanTh,

THanks for the quick response

No, I'm not using DHCP or RIS, I just need to boot a PXE, not deploy an image - I have diskpart/imagex/dism scripts that do that. Eventually it will go to WDS, but at the moment I cannot ad the server to AD, which apparently is a requirement for WDS.

This is exactly the link I have been using, if you take a closer look. I am trying to figure out what is it I am doing wrong following those exact instructions.

Cheers!

Ok, got it working, it was the DHCP server setting and the transport server config file. Now I have another problem. I only want to allow PXE it on one of the two interfaces. If I block UDP 4011, it applies it to both connections. How do I only apply the rule to one of the LAN interfaces?

Thanks
