I would like to create a clone of a WDS configuration. I will be using DFSR to sync the relevant image directories. How can I copy the WDS configuration itself? The only thing that will be different is the server name. Everything else should be identical.

To clarify: in WDS you set multiple config options like 'PXE Response', ADDS, Boot, Client, DCHP etc. Where is this information stored? An XML file? The registry?

In that case, per this link:  http://community.spiceworks.com/topic/267061-move-wds

The best way to do it is this:  http://thommck.wordpress.com/2010/05/06/how-to-migrate-windows-deployment-services-to-a-new-server/

This is for 2003, but it will apply to 2008, just a few differences.
