    PXE Representative Deployment fails

    Rookie

       

      Hello,

       

       

       

       

       

      I'm using LDMS 8.7 SP5 and I'm trying to seta new PXE representative by running the task "PXE Representative Deployment" but it fails to execute and I don't know what's the matter. Here is the log grabed in the "current status" of the task :

          Hello Sam,

           

           

          we've the same problem (also on a fresh installed server!). All files will be copied and the result of the MSI installation is a error...

          I checked the installation of PXE and found out, that all is installed, all configurations on PXE are done and PXE server is working fine.

           

           

          I think it is a timing problem of the osdrep.msi installation. This MSI is started from core instead of copying it to the PXE and start from there or made the installation from a store in the LAN of PXE. So if the bandwidth to the core is not so big, the success message from the MSI will not send to core...

            Thanks for the answer,

             

             

             

             

             

            But it's very strange that the schedule task notifies it as a failed task. How do you have checked that the PXE representative is working fine, without doing an OS Deployment?

              Hello Sam,

               

               

              in the past we use the original setup (msi) from intel to install PXE. We've our own installation method, we use Linux.

               

               

              I found a description on a intel page how to configure PXE and later I found this http://www.droppedpackets.org/osd/pe-imaging/adding-an-option-to-the-network-boot

               

               

              So I know which registry settings are necessary... but I don't know before testing if it is working (this problem you have with a success message too... )

               

               

              If WinPE starts, your PXE work.

               

               

              Regards

                Thanks for the answer but it doesn't seems to work properly. I've compared the script "PXE representative Deployment" with one that I have in another environment where the task deploy representative succeed and there are some differences. But LANDesk version here is the 8.8

                 

                 

                 

                 

                 

                Regards

                  Kind of weird, I've uninstalled and then re-installed the agent onto the workstation that I want to elect as PXE representative. Then, after the reboot of the future PXE representative, I've launched the PXE Representative Deployment task and it works. Thus, I'm wondering if the PXE only needed to be rebooted in my case.
