how do i CONFIGURE WDS

Recommended Posts

if you have just installed WDS via the WAIK then you will need to configure the WDS server. To do so you can click on Start/All Programs/Administrative Tools/Windows Deployment Services.

 

You will most likely see the following screen

To configure it using the wizard select your server in the left pane and right click it, choose configure server.

a wizard will appear

it may ask for the path of your RemoteInstall (previous RIS installation)

The next screen is typically confusing, it says 'Windows Deployment Services must be configured to not listen on port 67 and DHCP option tag 60 (i've added bold)., so select the two unselected options before clicking next.

Configuring DHCP option 60

The default configuration of Windows Deployment Services assumes that the Microsoft DHCP server and Windows Deployment Services server are on separate physical computers. When DHCP and Windows Deployment Services exist on the same computer, DHCP must inform the client computer that there is a PXE server listening on the network by including DHCP option tag 60 in the DHCP Offer packet.

 

To configure DHCP option 60 using the Windows Deployment Services snap-in

 

On the Start menu, click Administrative Tools, and click Windows Deployment Services.

 

Click to expand the Servers list.

 

Right-click the server and click Properties.

 

On the Server Properties page, click the DHCP tab.

 

On the DHCP Options page, click Configure DHCP Option 60 to 'PXEClient'.

 

Additional considerations and references

To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Account Operators group, Domain Admins group, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority.

To Configure DHCP option 60 using WDSUTIL

 

At a command prompt, type: WDSUTIL /set-server /DHCPoption60:yes

 

Additional considerations and references

WDSUTIL, the Windows Deployment Services command-line management tool, requires elevated privileges to run.

Configuring port 67

Because DHCP listens on port 67 by default, when Windows Deployment Services and DHCP exist on the same computer, the Windows Deployment Services PXE server is not able to listen on port 67 for incoming PXE boot requests.

 

To configure port 67 using the Windows Deployment Services snap-in

 

On the Start menu, select Administrative Tools, and click Windows Deployment Services.

 

Click to expand the Servers list.

 

Right-click the server and click Properties.

 

On the Server Properties page, click the DHCP tab.

 

On the DHCP Options page, click Do not listen on port 67.

 

Additional considerations and references

To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Account Operators group, Domain Admins group, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority.

To configure port 67 using WDSUTIL at a command prompt

 

At a command prompt, type: WDSUTIL /set-server /usedhcpports:no.

 

Additional considerations and references

WDSUTIL, the Windows Deployment Services command-line management tool, requires elevated privileges to run.

Important

Both the Configure DHCP Option Tag #60 to PXEClient and Do not listen on port 67 options must be selected if Microsoft DHCP and Windows Deployment Services are running on the same computer.

 

Select your response type (I went with the default)

and then click Finish. I then deselected 'add images' and clicked on finish again.

once complete it should look like this (this is a mixed mode WDS server, running Windows 2003 sp1)
