Deployment Server boot file problems

Alexander was looking to solve a boot file issue with a customer:

 

**************

 

Customer had an Insight Control Deployment Server with DHCP on one machine. But Customer decided to build own deployment network.

They changed DHCP server to external, rebuilt boot images( in PXE configuration), but we have such problem with a certificate error.

Input from Arnout:

 

***************

 

Make sure they have set the correct DHCP options. 

 

In short option 60 if PXE and DHCP on same server.

Option 66 if PXE and DHCP on different Server

Option 66 and 03 if PXE and DHCP on different server and different subnet.

 

And from http://h18013.www1.hp.com/products/servers/management/rdp/knowledgebase/00000138.html

 

PXE-E53: No boot filename received.
The client received at least one valid DHCP/BOOTP offer, but does not have a boot filename to download. There are several possible causes:

The DHCP Server and the PXE Server were located on the same server, but one of them was moved to a different server. This would result in an incorrect PXE Server configuration. 

To resolve this issue, reinstall the PXE Server component of the Altiris Deployment Solution.

The DHCP relay agent, either a Proxy DHCP Server or a switch configured with helper addresses, is not configured correctly. For example, if DHCP and PXE are on separate servers, the DHCP relay agent needs to have both addresses in its configuration. 

To resolve this issue, correct the DHCP relay agent configuration.

If the Microsoft DHCP service is installed on the PXE server, but is disabled or unconfigured, Altiris PXE Setup configures PXE to work with the local DHCP service (even if the DHCP service is disabled). This causes the PXE server to not respond to PXE clients that get a DHCP address from DHCP services running elsewhere on the network. 

To resolve this issue, remove Microsoft DHCP services from the PXE server and reinstall the PXE Server component of the Altiris Deployment Solution.
