    PXE Disaster! Help!

    Ok so after installing a new IIS site on the same server as SCCM is hosted it appears that PXE is not working! I'm almost in tears.

    When I pxe boot it's just a stream of:


    TFTP Download: smsboot\x86\abortpxe.com

    TFTP Download: smsboot\x86\abortpxe.com

    TFTP Download: smsboot\x86\abortpxe.com

    TFTP Download: smsboot\x86\abortpxe.com

    or

    TFTP Download: smsboot\x86\pxeboot.com

    TFTP Download: smsboot\x86\pxeboot.com

    TFTP Download: smsboot\x86\pxeboot.com

    TFTP Download: smsboot\x86\pxeboot.com

    and it just keeps going.

    Has anyone had this before?

    I'm not getting any errors in the system log under PXE service point. I'm scared!

    I'm getting these entries in the smspxe.log:

    <![LOG[MAC=00:1C:25:A3:56:6A SMBIOS GUID=B6256ED5-D41D-21B2-F617-001C25A3566A > Device has been rejected]LOG]!><time="08:50:47.994+000" date="03-25-2010" component="smspxe" context="" type="0" thread="4904" file="pxehandler.cpp:1893">

    That is for any device that tries to pxe boot.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Have you configured wds to respond to unknown and known devices?

    The client appears to be getting a PXE response... have you tried another client to make sure that PXE isn't b0rked on your test machine?

    Yes everything has been correctly configured.

    Yep. Tried on several machines:

    An unknown computer
    A computer with a mandatory advertisement
    A computer with an optional advertisement

    Sorry guys!

    False alarm.

    Restarting the WDS service on the server seems to have sorted the problem.

    Still have no idea of the cause though!
