LDMS 9.6 SP2
Hello, any input in the following question is appreciated:
1. An image capture task via PXE works well only IF both the PXE rep and the client (bare metal server) are connected to a "dumb" 5 port Netgear switch. Task completes just fine.
2. If I remove the switch and connect the machines directly to my Network, the task fails with Error PXE-E53
According to CISCO, by Wireshark results, when in scenario 2, the Bare Metal Server, send the request, but it receives an answer from 2 additional servers, my Domain Controller (DHCP server) and what seems to be my gateway, then as 3rd answer from my PXE Rep.
CISCO said that this is a race condition, since the first answer to hit my bare server comes from my DHCP (non PXE rep) the task fails.
Now, I been reading about PXE and I got different solutions and what seems to be different paths from the documentation.
a) This article says that we can not use a DHCP server as the PXE rep About LANDESK Management Suite PXE but this one tells me how to configure it How to configure DHCP to work with LANDESK PXE boot , so can I used it or Not?
b) The same article says that we shouldn't use a single PXE Rep for multiple Subnets, but then this article says we can... How to use a PXE Representative for multiple subnets
c) and also there is mention of using IP table helpers... (CISCO didn't know about this)
I created a ticket with support to what I was told to check my router.......
So what path should I follow?
