We are currently running LDMS 8.7 SP 5. We are preparing a major expansion of LANDesk to our new corporate offices after a being acquired. It has been recommended by me that we locate the Core server in the new company HQ since that is where the most managed systems and help desk staff will be located after the expansion. The new company requires extensive in house documentation be generated as part of all IT projects including references to official documents to back up all assertions.
If the Core Server is moved to another office or a new Core is built at the other office all PXE representatives must be redeployed. This is because the Core server IP Address and/or server name/ FQDN has changed ( as well as the certificate in the case of a new server) and the PXE representatives must be updated with the new information.
Can someone either point me to official LANDesk documentation that addresses this specifically or a LANDesk technician please confirm in this thread with as detailed description as possible that it is so and why that it is? This is for inclusion in our own documentation and my managers want a reference to LANDesk documentation that backs this up.
I have been through the LDMS deployment and user guides, Best Known Methods documents and even the HDL docs as well as searched extensively in the LANDesk Technical Community and while there are many references to redeploying the PXE reps any time changes are made to the WinPE image, none of them specifically address the above issue which is what my bosses want.
Thanks in advance!
