(MDT), WDS and PXE TFTP not happening
Just playing virtually and will probably give up soon and use Plan-B, but I've got MDT and WDS on a DC alongside DHCP. MDT is only relevant in that I've imported it's PE boot wim into WDS. So with a little help from Network Monitor...
PXE client boots
PXE client gets an IP address etc.
PXE client gets path+name of PXE boot file it needs to TFTP
PXE client requests the boot file from (WDS) TFTP, but it doesn't respond - no network packets are returned to the client.
Netstat -anb shows WDS listening on the TFTP port, WDS is set to talk to any old client, the firewall is off.
Is there some big TFTP Responses ON/OFF button I'm missing?
Plan-B which worked, was to turn WDS off, set DHCP options 66 (server's address) & 67 (pxeboot.n12), kill option 60, install the freebie Solarwinds TFTP and put this lot all in TFTP-Root because subfolders don't work:
winpe.wim is a renamed Lite Touch PE wim.
