Problems Adding PXE to DP

Recommended Posts

I am trying to get PXE setup on all my DP's and I'm finding a number of them that aren't working. I'm using 2012 SP1 CU2 and for the DP's that aren't working, it appears that the RemoteInstall\SMSBoot\X64 and X86 folders are completely empty. This is on both 2008 SP2 and 2008 R2 SP1 DP servers.

 

The process I'm using is to open the properties of the DP in the configuration manager console and to enable PXE there. I've also enabled PXE in both my x64 and X86 boot images. I'm not manually doing anything with WDS. It's working on some so my process seems to be correct.

 

In looking at the distmgr.log I see the below error, but I can't really find any info on this to know what the problem is.

CDistributionManager::ConfigurePXE failed; 0x80041001

 

Any suggestions on what I can do to get this working?

 

Thanks,

is this problem only happening after upgrading to CM12SP1 or is this fresh installs ? have you verified that no antivirus solution is blocking creation of these files/folders ?

These are all fresh installs of CM12SP1 and the servers are running Endpoint Protection. I can see that the RemoteInstall\Boot\x64 folder does have pxe files so it seems unlikely that it would be antivirus blocking them?

A little more info...

This is from the smspxe.log file on one of the affected DP's.

have you installed Windows ADK prior to running setup ?

Yes ADK was installed on the site server before we did anything. Also, the exact same boot images are working fine on other servers. As a test I created a new boot image from the Windows ADK boot wim and I'm still getting the exact same results.

After trying every fix I could find online I finally opened a case with Microsoft and was told this is a known bug that only affects Server 2008 and not 2008 R2. There is no real fix, but the workaround is to copy the RemoteInstall\SMSTempBootFiles directory from a working DP and then restart the WDS service. This will then populate the SMSBoot directories. This has to be redone any time the boot images are updated.

 

Hopefully this will be resolved in R2.
