We are running LANDesk in a environment with close to 10 000 clients.
From time to time, seemingly without any reason, the PXE service stops working. The service is still shown as running, but clients are unable to perform network installation etc. A simple restart of the service helps fortunately.
In situations where this happens our service desk get contacted and restarts the PXE service. This works OK, but we are looking for another way to get around doing this manualle. A script running every 10 minutes or so that perform a check on the PXE service by communicating directly with it (performing a command or something) could be a solution, restarting the service if it doesnt get the expected reply. However I feel like doing that is a bit bad way to go about this...
Is there anyone else out there that experience this problem and have found a solution to this?
