Ok, I'm slightly confused (read: very).

 

My environment is as follows (simplified). One primary SCCM server (SVR-SCCM) W2K8r2 with SCCM 2007r3 that is also the PXE server for our Main Office. This site has been doing OSD perfectly. One Remote site (SVR-SITE1) that has it's own subnet, DC (with DHCP), and is a BDP. The Boot Image has been successfully pushed to the remote site.

 

I'm remotely PXE booting machines to do OSD. Here are my steps (simplified)

1) Boot remote computer

2) F12 for boot options

3) Choose "Boot from Onboard NIC"

4) F12 for Network Boot

5) Remote machine pulls wdsnbp.com from the PXE server (this takes about 10-15 minutes remotely)

6) Remote machine pulls boot.wim from PXE server (900 mb file, takes forever)

7) Brings up TS selection wizard

Now, Step 6 is what I need assistance with. Am I able to have that boot.wim pull from my BDP? Or can that boot.wim ONLY be pulled from a PXE server? (This is the boot.wim that is in my ConfigMgr Admin Console under OSD->Boot Images.) I'm fairly certain that this should be pulling the boot.wim from the BDP, but I'm not sure. And if that is the case, what steps can I take to troubleshoot it and figure out why it is not pulling from the local BDP?

TIA,

Erik

my understanding is that the boot image has to come from the PXE server (specifically the smspxeimages$ share) when you are doing a PXE boot. you can push your boot images to other distribution points, but they will only be used when an OSD task is initiated from within Windows not when PXE booting.
