PXE boot Error for HP Thin Client

I am attempting to use the Network boot option (PXE) to capture & deploy thin client images.

I am testing locally first (in our DataCenter where the DHCP Server & HPDM server are both located. They are 2 separate hosts).

I have enabled the following options in the DHCP scope (as per the HPDM requirements):
Option 60 - PXEClient
Option 201 - IP Address (and Port number) of the HPDM host

I have attempted to network boot one of the thin clients and it displays the following:
error
I am unsure where to troubleshoot from here? The DHCP server or the HPDM server?
I am assuming it is the HPDM server as the client seems to have leased an address (or it could possible just be it's previous address still).

Since HP DM does not run on the same server as your DHCP server, then DHCP option 60 must NOT be set to "PXE Client".
In addition to that, if HP DM does not have a "real" PXE server (and I don't think it has), you must set DHCP option 66 and 67 (boot server and boot file name).

Check my article (and its comments) for more details :
