We had an issue with loading drivers in SCCM and decided to restore the main site from a backup before the driver issue occurred.  Now PXE boot is not working on remote sites as the configuration manager cannot locate a policy?

Hi,

Are you familiar with CMTrace and the many different log files? If not, you really need to get familiar. You can't hope to run ConfigMgr without knowing these as basics.

The log for PXE is  SMSPXE.log.

AbortPXE

TFTP Download: smsboot\x64\abortpxe.com
PXE Boot aborted. Booting to next device...

Shows that your PXE Service Point and WDS are both installed and configured fine and are working as expected.

The error means your OSD deployment (i.e. your Task Sequence) is not found for the PC that is being PXE booted. The log file will show this.
The PXE Service Point is just doing what it ought to because this machine has "nothing to do" and gets a PXE abort.

Check the deployment settings. If you look in the SMSPXE.log it is probably showing the line:

ProcessDatabaseReply: No Advertisement found in Db for device smspxe

Open in new window


Solution: Create a new deployment for the machine.

You mention *remote sites* don't work. Does OSD work fine locally then?

We ended up rebuilding the entire deployment front to back and that fixed the issue.  Thanks for your input Mike!

Not too much input from community and could not wait any longer.  Had to get the system up and running again.
