Currently, we have a Windows WDS as our PEX server and set up ip helper on routers virtual interface. It works 75% times that sometimes with PEX server not found/time out errors. I found out that Landesk has a built in function for PXE boot. That's why we are moving this approach to make Landesk 2016 as a PXE boot server. I would like to know how to configure DHCP server or Router to have Landesk as a PEX boot server without any PEX representative on each subnets.
Correct me wrong, from my understanding about PXE Representative, it needs to have at least one one each subnet. If the PXE Representatives are down on this subnet, you will lose you PEX boot option on this subnet. If this is right, I don't want to have more administrative time to manage those PXE Representatives.
So, I need to configure my DHCP server with option 43 and 60 set, can someone explain a little more on detail with examples? From the documentation How to configure DHCP to work with LANDESK PXE boot , it said not option 66 and 67, if you are using Landesk PXE boot.
if I set ip helper on routers virtual interface, is this a better option?
Pro and Con on each configurations?
