    Provisioning, PXE, and TFTP

    mbaney Apprentice

      Hi,

      I had provisioning working but sometime during the upgrade to 9.5 SP3 it seems to have broken.  I am now getting these TFTP errors:

       

      PXE-T01: File not found

      PXE-E3B: TFTP Error – File not found

      PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel PXE ROM

       

      I have the provisioning template (that used to work) scheduled. I create a device in ‘Bare Metal Servers’ schedule it, start it, and boot the system and get the errors above. When I use Sysinternals Process Monitor to see where it is looking for the file it is looking in ‘C:\Program Files (x86)\LANDesk\PXE\System\images’.  Indeed there is no startrom.0 there but I think it should be looking in a different directory like ‘C:\Program Files (x86)\LANDesk\PXE\System\images\x86pc\undi\provwin’ right?  I’ve messed around with PxeConfig.exe a little but I’m not sure how/when the magic happens for a device that is scheduled to do a provisioned install and what boot files it is supposed to get at what point.

       

      I’ve removed and reinstalled the PXE representative (which is my core server, I know it’s a no no but it worked before) but it was not helpful. My core server is now listed twice in devices (once with just a hostname and once with FQDN).  Could this be the problem?  Should I do the PXE rep removal dance, remove both core servers, deploy the agent, and then deploy the PXE rep?

       

      Thanks,

      Brad
