DHCP won't assign IP to PXE enabled NIC

This doesn't seem like the normal problem about the protocol not being able to be routed.

If you plug a RDP server (with DHCP installed) directly in to a Proliant 350G2 (via a twisted cable) should the PXE NIC be able to get a DHCP address?
Erm... because mine doesn't.

Re: DHCP won't assign IP to PXE enabled NIC

Ignore that last message I figured it out.

What I did was install RDP first then installed the DHCP on the same server.

The PXE.EXE install program adds an option to the DHCP scope specifically for PXE boot agents.

Didn't have this in the scope hence I wasn't getting an IP address.

Thanks for my help!
