    Not PXE booting

    I am currently setting up/learning SCCM 2012, and I have gone through the various tutorials at Windows-Noob.com.

    I have an odd issue here - a PC that is in the database, and has a C&B task sequence deployed to it (via a collection which contains only this computer).

    PXE *was* working recently, but now in the SMSPXE.log file, I am getting the following:

    Code:
    D8:D3:85:91:5D:A4, 8C836100-8107-11E1-AE58-D8D385915DA4: device is in the database.    SMSPXE    05/07/2013 14:26:32    7816 (0x1E88)

    Basically, after identifying the machine in the database, it then repeatedly says that an optional advertisment is available and the machine doesn't boot. It sits at the PXE boot stage, with the DHCP.... getting longer and longer. It never gives an error.

    A little background: SCCM was working with PXE but then I had to disable the PXE bit for one reason or another. Re-enabling it didn't work and it took me some effort to get it back working again (ie. WDS wouldn't re-install but it is now installed and running).

    Does the machine have a duplicate BIOS GUID or Mac address than another in SCCM? This will help to find a duplicate MAC address - OSD on to machine that was previously in use....

    Nope, only the single machine.

    Can you PXE boot any machines?
    are you getting a PXE timeout or other error?
    If noone can get a PXE address then it could be more PXE/WDS problems
    If nothing is getting a PXE prompt then PXE/WDS may still be broken - especially if you had issues with WDS.

    It appears not, no device can PXE boot. I also don't get any PXE errors - it just sits saying ...... forever, and the SMSPXE.log says the above constantly.

    I take it you have the correct options set in DHCP for the Boot Server Host Name and Bootfile Name?
    In WDS, is the server showing as configured, and set to respond to all clients?

    I know SCM 2012 should do this, but you may need to give it a slight nudge if it hasnt

    Yup. It was working previously. Both the DHCP options are where they should be. (I wouldn't get anything in SMSPXE.log if this bit wasn't working I think?)

    Just had a look in WDS and its set to respond to all...

    I've now let a machine run at PXE stage, trying to boot for 25 minutes. I have loads of repeats of the above cycle of messages, and a line of dots that now wraps round onto a second line on the PC after DHCP. No error. Just ........

    I've now deleted all Boot images, all task sequences, all OS images and installers and am starting the entire lot from scratch. I've removed PXE/WDS rebooted, deleted the RemoteInstall folder and re-enabled PXE.

    So, we'll see what happens now...

    I sometimes get an error with my SCCM server where the client does not receive any PXE advertisement. All I do is restart the WDS service and it starts working !!

    It isn't that. I'm a bit beyond a simple reboot.

    Well... now it hasn't populated the SMSBoot folder - all the folders inside are empty, and the distribution of the boot images are stuck 'In Progress'...

    I think I may just uninstall SCCM completely and start afresh - I've only been using it for WSUS so far!!

    Urgh I had this - I removed all OS Images from the DPs, removed the DP and PXE role completely, removed WDS and deleted the RemoteInstall Folder - there is also something like an SMSBoot in the %WINDIR%\Temp folder IIRC..

    (follow the logs to ensure everythign is deleted & uninstalled)

    Reboot, reinstall WDS, the DP and the PXE - keeping an eye on logs, etc

    I did get it to go in eventually without rebuilding SCCM

    I've tried that twice now. No errors in the logs. Nothing in the temp directory related either...
