Server: 2012 R2
Mode: Native
PXE: Response set to respond to all then require approval for unknown...
Computer account location: specified to same domain as WDS
Boot: Set to Require the user to press F12 to continue the PXE boot
DHCP: Do not listen on DHCP ports (tried all option for both check boxes)
Multicast: Set to obtain IP address from DHCP
DHCP Authorization: This is where it fails! Try to hit the box for "Authorize this Windows Deployment Services server in DHCP. Tried dynamically and explicitly specifying the DC and GC. I get an error (see attached here)
Network: Tried dynamic ports from Winsock and the default UDP ports.

I tried setting up the DHCP scope options for the hostname of WDS. #60 is custom, how do I set this up or maybe I don't need it? The DHCP server and WDS and the client all can communicate but DHCP (clustered) and WDS are on different 2012 R2 servers.

Hi admitech,

 Apart from DHCP option 66, did you also set 67?
 Option 66 is only the server, 67 is the bootimage to use. Normally something like:
 boot\x86\pxeboot.com or boot\x64\pxeboot.com

 Regards,

 Luc

Thanks I did not. I was not sure what to put for my environment. Is this just generic and based upon x64/32/ia64, etc? Do I need option 60? If so how do I create it?

Thanks so much!

You won't need option 60 for PXE boot, 66&67 should do.
The boot image files are the defaults fir WDS, most likely you'd want to use the x64 one.
