    SCCM / PXE Question

    Very quick question to those in the know...

    When PXE booting to SCCM (2012R2), will it fail if there is no task sequence advertised to it's group?

    I am getting the pxeabort.com thing but clear advertisements and all.... I was so disheartened at the end of Friday I was looking for non-IT jobs but thinking about it, the above makes sense and would love someone to tell me this is why it wasn't working, meaning I get a good nights sleep!.

    Yes, unless you deploy the TS to unknown computers. That will allow you to PXE boot machines not in SCCM. However if you have a machine that is in SCCM but isn't in a collection with a TS deployed to it, won't PXE boot because it isn't unknown.

    To fix it deploy the TS to a collection the machine is a member of.
