    If I deploy multiple PXE representatives is there any load balancing between them?

      If I deploy multiple PXE reps on a segment how will they be serviced.  Is there any load balancing between them?

          Boogs,

           

          There is not any load balancing between PXE Reps.  Each PXE Rep is responding to DHCP requests and then tells the client device that it (the PXE Rep) is where to download the boot image.  In DHCP requests it is a situation where the first response is the one accepted.  That means that you can have multiple PXE Reps per subnet, and it might use one or it might use the other, but the determining factor for who gets used isn't anything other than whoever's response arrives at the client machine first.
