SCCM 2012 sp1 PXE boot problem



Recommended Posts

I am unable to PXE boot a bare metal PC using SCCM 2012 sp1. I have never tried to deploy an operating system before now. Here is my situation:

 

Recently upgraded my SCCM 2012 site to sp1. Site system status is all green.

Configured SCCM 2012 to deploy operating systems using PXE boot.

When I try to PXE boot the bare metal PC, the following error message is returned: PXE-E55 ProxyDHCP service did not reply to request on port 4011.

The firewall on the SCCM 2012 server is turned off.

In the SMSPXE.log I have the following message:

 

Getting boot action for unknown machine: item key: 2046820352 SMSPXE 4/11/2013 9:46:31 AM 3008 (0x0BC0)

I have tried reinstalling WDS and disabling/re-enabling PXE booting in SCCM 2012 3 times to no avail. I am up against a brick wall on this one. Almost ready to call Microsoft but wanted to let you guys have a look at this first. Any help would be appreciated.

Sounds like a network communication issue.

 

Are you running the BMP client on the same subnet as the 2012 server? If not, do you have your network switch setup for ip helper for the protocol/port?

Have you already reviewed these articles: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/winservergen/thread/3747b974-ba4f-41e4-abd9-a2e7a38e994b, http://www.bootix.com/support/problems_solutions/pxe_e55_proxydhcp_service_did_not_reply_to_request_on_port_4011.html

 

Assuming your setup (option 60) is good, are their multiple NICs on your system you are trying to build?

I have reviewed these articles before and have seen advice not to configure DHCP settings if the DHCP server and SCCM/PXE server are on different servers which they are.

Yes that is why I asked...there is no need to not unless you have clients on different subnets/VLANs then you can configure DHCP options to let clients know where the PXE server is and the location of the bootfile (not recommended but will work, maybe for a while), the recommended way is to have IP helpers.

 

Anyway have you seen this article?

It may be your problem.

Yes, thanks I have seen that article and tried the recommendations. No luck. The article refers to error PXE-E53 , but I am getting error PXE-E55.
